Publisher's Summary

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

Something is stirring up angry apparitions all over town. Something that can break all the laws of supernatural physics. Something that doesnt like Harry. His closest friends are being targeted. The net is closing in. Harry must find a solution soon or find this is one Nightmare from which he will never waken.

    "wow James Butcher has really found his stride."

    How does he do it.
    Mr. Butcher must have gone to Wizard School himself and graduated with honors.

    "Grave Peril"

    New to the dresden files I ended up buying the entire series...I just couldn't help myself! James Marsters does an incredible job and it is great to listen in my car when I can't read it on my own! Great for long rides or quiet evenings! Cannot wait for next book!

    Story
    "Meh... Am I just not getting it?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe... There is a lot of junk to slink through.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The idea of the character Michael is very interesting to me. I would have liked to see the novel focus in on his character and the relationship with the main protagonist. The least interesting bit is practically every bit featuring vampires and a continuous need to pause and describe exactly how every female character's clothing clings to her breasts.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene is the best.


    Do you think Grave Peril needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Meh... I just don't really enjoy these books. I'm not sure why... or maybe I am. The characters are all very predictable, not fleshed out, and completely stereotyped. I think I might be done with Dresden.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like these novels, you might like this one. For me its just becoming repetitive.

    Story
    "Growing into a new fav"

    I read a few reviews, before I started this series, about the excessive noises made by the reader and how they were distracting and took away from the story. I quite disagree! Not only are they not distracting, but they add such a realness to the emotion of the character that, between the great writing and the outstanding narration, this series is quickly growing into one of my all time favorites!

    Story
    "Harry's growing up!"

    Harry Dresden. Hopefully you're familiar with the name through the first two books. If not, it's probably best you start there, otherwise this very weird story will be difficult to follow.

    If you have read the first two, then you'll notice a shift in this book. Harry is a bit more serious and seems to be maturing. The story itself is just as fantastic as the others, with elements of Christianity, fairies, vampires, spirits, and magic all jumbled together.

    It may also be a bit darker than previous books. Not all the good guys come out unscathed, and I foresee darker days ahead in the series. Of course, I will read on. Jim Butcher and James Marsters have the perfect combination of lighthearted and engaging entertainment.

    So, if you've read the first two books, keep going with this one. You'll be glad you did.

    Story
    "Dresden Gets Better"

    The first two books were extremely good. They got me to book three which took Dresden to entirely new heights. This book was much more visceral and raised the stakes to a whole new level compared to books 1 & 2. I enjoyed the lore of the storyline in this book a bit more than the first two(and I really liked book two's werewolf lore). The fight scenes and descriptive narrative was much more mature and gory. Even my wife, who listens on the side, made mention of it. I listened to this book in less than a week and found myself finding reasons to stop and listen.

    Well done Mr. Butcher. I look forward to more Dresden goodness.

    "Transition from P.I. to Superhero"

    I often reccomend that people start this series with Grave Peril because it's when Butcher really works out the basis of the Dresden character and introduces enough supporting characters to bouy further story arcs. Great read all told!
