Book source ~ Gifted – birthday present For those who like to read things in chronological order this story is set between the novel White Knight and the graphic novel Down Town. I love the world of Harry Dresden and I delight in each book and graphic novel I can get my greedy little hands on. This one was a birthday gift from my hubby, so yay! Even though this is a short story in graphic novel form, everything I love about the Dresden Files is present: humor, snarkiness, Big Bads, mystery, and magic. I love it. On the other hand, I’m not so enamored with the artwork. It’s only so-so for me since I don’t think anyone looks how I pictured them. Which wouldn’t ordinarily be a bad thing, but I just had a hard time with everyone being so buff. Harry? No. And Marcone? Seriously?! Absolutely not. Anyway, great story, meh artwork.
I did recieve this as an eArc from Netgalley for an honest review. First, I liked the story more than the artwork. The first part with him standing between the vampire court and Marcone's is per norm. lots of yelling, lots of beating up of poor Harry. The old wild fey that showed up is pretty interesting, and I hope he does more stories around the wild fey. The ending was kind of hurried, and not very satisfying. I will admit that I am behind in my Dresden Files reading, like maybe the last 4 books, but I did like that Molly was there. Dresden really needs to be training somebody as much as he gets beaten up. And it's also good to have family around, even if his brother is a vampire. Second, the artwork was just kind of meh. It was just like all the other Image, Boom studios, Dynamite, & IDW comics. It's like they have a stock of 5 or 6 shapes, and after awhile, they all start looking the same.
