Proven Guilty (The Dresden Files, Book 8)
Proven Guilty (The Dresden Files, Book 8)

Review: In the continuing saga of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, the reader seldom sees what is coming next. W elearn more about Harry's back story as well as watch him protect his apprentice from the White Council and herself. Read more

Shadowed Souls
Shadowed Souls

Review: Only a couple of stories worth reading, the rest was trash that I skipped through due to unnecessary foul language or poor writing. It's quite a bit of money to pay for a mostly unreadable book. Very disappointed. Read more

Changes (Dresden Files)
Changes (Dresden Files)

Review: Easily the best of an already great series so far. It's rare to find an author that can keep a series so engaging for so long, let alone successfully build upon and change all the established plot threads and continue from there. Read more

Dead Beat (The Dresden Files, Book 7)
Dead Beat (The Dresden Files, Book 7)

Review: Thank gawd for a surprise in this book! I like the Harry character. He's getting older and seasoned in his craft. Thus, it is time for an attitude adjustment. The 'sensitive' warrior personality coupled with constant self-doubt is getting old. Jeez, Harry is a White Council Warden now! He is required to act like a seasoned wizard able to provide guidance and mentoring to the newbies. The Blue Beetle should be fondly 'let-go' and be replaced by a Jeep or Harley reflecting elevated status and ... Read more

Turn Coat (The Dresden Files, Book 11)
Turn Coat (The Dresden Files, Book 11)

Review: The book is a great read. Jim Butcher does it again. Great story line with amazing twists. Also explains a lot of the council's functions that I never quite got in the other books. Can't wait to read the next one. Read more

Summer Knight (Dresden Files)
Summer Knight (Dresden Files)

Review: Once again JB starts off the book with a storm...of raining toads! I like the writing style that creates hard to put down books. Each chapter begins in the middle of a sequence of events that may include a conversation or an action sequence from the previous chapter. Great stuff for fantasy/investigative novelists. Read more

Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, Book 3)
Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, Book 3)

Review: I was assured that the series would pick up by the third book. While some slight improvements have been made (allies are no longer the main hindrance, Harry is facing some of his many character flaws) the story isn't much better. Still too much reliance on weak premises for conflict (how many times is he going to drop his staff and wand?) , deus ex machina, and flat characters. I really want to like these book but I just don't. The premise is fantastic then is wasted on poorly conceived foes ... Read more

Blood Rites (The Dresden Files, Book 6)
Blood Rites (The Dresden Files, Book 6)

Review: When I first started reading this series, the first thing that came to mind was that this was an Anita Blake clone, only with a male protagonist instead of a female one. After six books, my impression hasn't yet changed much. Despite this, I have enjoyed the series very much as Butcher has managed to match (and surpass in recent books) the bar set by the excellent Laurell Hamilton. Read more

White Night (The Dresden Files, Book 9)
White Night (The Dresden Files, Book 9)

Review: Another hit in the Dresden Files. Where does it stop? Jim Butcher gets better and better. I could not put this book down, because the action was as fast as you expect it in these series and the humor was right there where you needed it. The reader gets to know Molly a bit better and her talents develop during the book. But Harry stays alone and lonely. I am looking forward to the next book. Will Harry find his soul mate? Read more

Death Masks (Dresden Files)
Death Masks (Dresden Files)

Review: Great characters that hold their own. Fast paced action that's neither overly descriptive nor vague. Can see author evolve his writing style as well as the characters and macro story line. The best of the series yet. Cant wait to start the next episode. Read more
