"In his life, Harry's been shot, stabbed, sliced, beaten, burned, crushed, and tortured. And after someone puts a bullet through his chest and leaves him to die in the waters of Lake Michigan, things really start going downhill. But even trapped in the realm between life and death, Harry can't catch a break. He learns that three of his friends are destined to experience unbearable torment and agony. Only by bringing his murderer to justice can he save his friends and move on to what comes next--a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Instead, Harry must work as a ghost, unable to interact with the physical world, invisible and inaudible to almost everyone. Unfortunately he's not the only specter roaming Chicago. There are malevolent shadows who haven't forgotten Harry's predilection for putting evil in its place while he was alive. And now that Harry's on their turf, they are looking for some serious payback. So the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic--or face an eternity as just another lost soul"--… (meer)

I'm really excited for the next one, but this one didn't grab me the way the past few have. ( )

Harry’s dead!

In his afterlife, he must return to Chicago as a ghost to find his murderer or his friends will suffer. Add an imminent threat from forces formerly held at bay by the Red Court and the return of an old enemy who kidnaps a professional colleague, and Dresden gets no rest even when he’s dead.

A good addition to the series. An excellent plot twist. Worth staying up late for. ( )

Another fantastic chapter in the Dresden Files!!! I hope the author, Jim Butcher, will live a wizard's long life, and continue to pump out excellent reads like this one for decades to come!! ( )

And then he was dead. Ish..

Of course the ending of Changes couldn't be the end of Dresden. And after Ghost Story, I think I can forgive Butcher for that cliff hanger. Mostly. :)

Thematically, it's a different sort of story, with Dresden mostly without any of his usual tools of the trade and having to learn a whole new set of rules for how the rules work. After the crazy power spike he got throughout Changes, it's something that needed to happen and I think it was done well.

On top of that, we get all of the fall out. Turns out, when you operate on Dresden's scale and when you take out an entire race of bad guys, you create something of a massive void. And now his friends have to deal with it.

Among the developments of Ghost Story is bringing Mortimer Lindquist (it's funny because 'mort' or something similar means death in many Romance languages) to the forefront. Just trying to stay alive makes sense in the darkness that is the Dresdenverse and yet in the end, he still comes through for the good guys. He had a nice character arc, particularly for what was previously a minor, annoying character.

We also get a previous bad guy back again. No spoilers, but given the subject matter (dead things), it's guessable. It was nice to see the fallout of previous problems like that come up again. I have a feeling we'll be feeling that throughout the rest of the series.

All together, it wasn't my favorite book in the series--it's just too different. On the other hand, it's a good way to hit the reset button on a fair bit of power creep and shift the Dresden Files to a new normal. It'll be interesting to see where it goes next... ( )

Ghost Story is book Thirteen in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher and narrated by James Marsters.

Well the surprises keep coming. Several months have passed since Harry’s death tho his body has yet to be recovered. In the meantime, the world has changed and Chicago has gone to shit.

Harry has awakened to find himself somewhere in the in-between. As he goes on this journey in-between life and death lots is revealed to Harry and the reader. As he journeys to find his killer we see how his death has affected the world and his friends. The world has changed after the Death of the Red Court, how screwed up Chicago is without him, and what has become of his friends. My heart broke for his friends. His death has messed up Molly and I’m worried about her. Murphy isn't doing well either. Murphy, Butters, and the werewolves have joined forces to try and keep Chicago together and protected.

Their is no shortage of surprises revealed. We get evil ghosts and many battles. Harry finding himself powerless and a noob in this in-between life and as usual Harry risks much to bend the rules. He comes to terms with things and I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here.

As always Butcher weaves a marvelous tale with danger, twists, and humor.

Narration: James Marsters did a superb job. He has become the voice of Harry. The audio is spectacular.

Ghost Story reads like an ending to the series tho I know there are more stories in the series. We are treated to another amazing tale from the Dresden Files, which should NOT be read out of order!

Rated: 4.5 Stars

"Got a rocket," I sang, "in your pocket. Turn off the juice, boy."
Show tunes? Really? It wasn't bad enough that you've started talking to yourself, man. Now you're doing performing art.
But the musically inclined me had a point.
"Play it cool, boy," I whispered. "Real cool."
"What is teaching but the art of planting and nurturing power?"
"Names have tremendous power, Dresden. Yet mortals toss them left and right as though they were toys. It's like watching infants play with hand grenades sometimes." -Uriel
“Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden,” he said quietly – and he said it exactly right, speaking my Name in a voice of that same absolute power that had so unnerved me before. “Do not attempt to familiarize my name. The part you left off happens to be rather important to who and what I am.
“It is one thing for you to say ‘Let the world burn.’ It is another to say ‘Let Molly burn.’ The difference is all in the name.”
