    I liked it, but some elements of the Dresden universe are starting to over stay their welcome.

    I liked it, but some elements of the Dresden universe are starting to over stay their welcome. The core of the story is good, dealing with trying to find a traitor within the wizard organization. It's just the other supernatural organization that shows up yet again that I think needs some time off. Given the relationship Harry has with one of his supporting cast, I can see why that organization shows up more frequently than some of the other individuals and groups established in the series so far. But understanding why they keep showing up is not the same as being happy when it's clear that they're going to be making another appearance. On the plus side, the ending makes it seem like we will be taking a little break from them, which I hope will allow us to explore some of the other groups that have been on the bench for a while (or maybe even something new all together).

    Annoying

    Annoying. Dresden's high moral stance is really getting on my nerves. Why in the world would you help someone that wishes you nothing but ill will and who was always looking for a reason to kill you? Leave it to Dresden to put his life and family on line for someone who made his teen/young adult years hell. I hate these one dimensional characters whose morality blinds them to reason.

    That being said, I am still a Dresden fan and this book was not too bad. It was fast paced with lots of action. Hopefully his next book is better.

    Has anybody seen Bob?

    I've enjoyed the Dresden books immensely, due in part to the life-on-the-edge-of-death-all-the-time situations Harry gets into, in part to the on-going battle of Good over Evil, in part to the human qualities including loneliness and emotional frailty we see in the powerful wizard, but more than any other single reason due to the humor usually woven throughout the storylines. This book is lacking that humor. While the story is pretty good and pretty Dresdenesque, the typical humor, sarcasm, witty repartee, and, most noticeably, Bob, are missing. The book is dark, the story is dark, the outcome is dark -on more than one level- and predictable, and Bob is missing. Bob does have a cameo, so he wasn't competely dumped, but he is not an intergal part of the story or even a contributing character; and his absence is a big part of the overall lack of humor and appeal. Butcher has gone from portraying a strong wizard in constant peril to portraying a damaged man in more emotional pain than most people can stand to empathize with; adventure and cleverness has sunk to chronic injury and depression. Lighten up, Jim. The guy has made you a millinaire; would it kill you to let him enjoy life a little? And where the H is Bob?!
