    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Like a lot of folks, I was worried about where Mr Butcher was going with cold days after the silliness that was Ghost Story.


    You may relax. Without giving away too much, Harry is back in action, the plot is back on the rails, and his character still makes sense. In fact, things are starting to come together. This book is so packed full of action, plot, and individual character development, describing any more real detail about the story would give too much away, especially to those who have come this far.


    The writing itself is on par with the best of his work, with great pacing and dialog. One note, I believe Butcher is going through some kind of a stage, (or harry is, depending on how you look at it) because there are more notable uses of the fbomb in this Dresden File than any other. Not a problem for me, I felt it helped give this book a bit more flavor, But some may find it distasteful.



    James Marsters is back and gives the performance we have come to expect from him in the Dresden Files, a fantastic one.



    In all, I was delighted with this book, with so many moments that I found myself exited or laughing aloud for harry and the gang, it has become one of my favorites. Hats off to Jim for pulling it back and kicking it in gear.

    In an urban fantasy that charts daring new territory in the field, Jeremiah Hunt has been broken by a malevolent force that has taken his young daughter and everything else of value in his life: his marriage, his career, his reputation. Desperate to reclaim what he has lost, Hunt finally turns to the supernatural for justice.

    What other book might you compare Eyes to See to and why?

    This book is like a Dresden files substitue, a little darker, a little more cranky, but it has the general feel and taste.

    The Narrator is good, and gives a good life to the players in this story.
