Haven written a book I understand the craft, nuance, and skill. IMHO, this is Jim Butcher's best work and the finest story I've ever heard. It is simply amazing.
This series is among my top three favorites. One of my others is also by Jim. He has an impressive ability to drag you in and keep you interested throughout the entire series, even through the mundane pieces. This particular book is the most emotional of the series and it brings you close to all of the main characters.
