    Still good, but I think I liked the last one a bit more.

    Still good, but I think I liked the last one a bit more. I can't point at anything and say "this was bad". I think it's just a matter of personal taste.

    We keep the Dresden working with back up element that elevated the last book. This time though, Butcher brings back characters from the first two novels to fill the role. It works better for some more than others here. My opinion of Murphy was definitely raised, which was something that needed to happen before the next time she showed up to ask for Dresden's help on a case. Billy and the Alphas, while not bad, didn't really live up to the high point set by Michael.

    As has been the norm for the series so far, we get a really big expansion of the universe the book is set in. Maybe a little too big this time. We get a lot of introductions to things that exist, but not all that much in the way of details about what they can do. Which makes it hard to narrow down a suspect list, or to make sure that someone isn't written off the list because that person isn't really given an opportunity to show you what they're capable of.

    This book was a little confusing

    I've read 5 of the Dresden Files series books. This was one of the ones that was a little confusing. It's a battle between Winter and Summer and it was tough to keep the characters figured out (who was on which side). The ending was fabulous though. Getting there was a struggle for me.

    Fantasy/ Sci Fi

    Good series.. this is #4. Some of the plot gets pretty convoluted.. but then it all works out in the end.

    Not the best of the series, but still good

    I'm surprised there aren't more user reviews for this on here. It was a quick read and very funny, as are all the Dresden Files books. I liked how the White Council was finally involved in the story and that Harry's past is fleshed out more. Murphy really wasn't around much (basically one scene) and I was pretty confused by all the Summer/Winter Queens/Ladys/Mothers/Knights running around. I thought I had it straightened out until the end when they start dropping names without their official titles. I found it all needlessly confusing. Also, I would've liked to hear more about Michael from the last book, but he was nowhere to be found. All in all, it was a decent book but I still think Grave Peril is the best with Storm Front next (although I've only read the first four). Fans of fairies will definately want to pick this one up.
