Don't get me wrong I love Dresden and the cast of crazy characters that revolve around him. I love the pithy style of banter and dark humor. I love the high fantasy of magic and fairy. What still bothering me is that the arcs are still formulaic, meaning there are no interesting twists. As for the procedural aspect of the books thus far, it leaves allot to be desired. The detective and police work portrayed is boarding and rudimentary. It would be better if the mundane aspects were tighter because it would make magic more interesting and impact full. I just keep getting the feeling that I have read this book before... Maybe I have.
Dresden Files keep getting more engaging by the book. Adventures and melodrama blend better and more intensely once the characters are developed and familiar to the returning reader.
If you love this genre but hate the typical monsters vs human series, this is a must for you. Unique storyline and fabulous character creation. This was written to make us think twice about who your standing next to and what is in the bad, really. Fun and scary
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Getting back to this series is ways fun. Harry as usual is back in trouble by no fault of his own, of course. A couple of new characters are added and his relationship with Michael deepens. The content may be of a religious nature but really was not at all about religion, but more about duty and good over evil. This addition to the series does not get tied up in a neat little bow at the end so we will probably be seeing these characters again, who now, have been added to Harry's ever growing list of enemies. Marsters narration keeps getting better in every book.
Just recently started the series from the beginning. Each and every book has satisfied my need to see where the nation's only Professional Wizard's adventures lead this time.
Between Dresden's sense of obligation toward justice and Marsters narration the stories come to life.
Each one seems better than the last.
It was a wonderful book. It was the best one I've read so far. The narration was awesome! James Morrison really knows how to use his voice! Jim Butcher really knows how to tell a story!
