It's been a while since I read a Dresden book. I needed to skim summaries of the last few to remember what's going on. Once things got rolling the familiar cadence returned and the large cast was fun to revisit.

One of the things I really like about these books is how the supporting characters grow and change over time. This book continued that somewhat. It also showed some tough decision making scenes for Harry. That's the bread & butter. There's also the familiar with edges, an underlying sense of wish fulfillment from the author, over-sexualized women, and that feeling you get when someone tells you a story about their witty comebacks that you suspect were thought up much later in the shower.

This book is a set up for the next one. It shouldn't be it's own book at all. I'm not sure if that was an action by the publisher or author scared of a big page count. I'll start on the next one right away. I'm eager to see how this turns out as we enter act 2. ( )

Another fantastic entry in the Harry Dresden series.

Home, like love, hate, war, and peace, is one of those words that is so important that it doesn't need more than one syllable. Home is part of the fabric of who humans are. Doesn't matter if you're a vampire or a wizard or a secretary or a schoolteacher; you have to have a home, even if only in principle-there has to be a zero point from which you can make comparisons to everything else. Home tends to be it.

Holy crap.

It's been years since [b:Skin Game|19486421|Skin Game (The Dresden Files, #15)|Jim Butcher|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1387236318l/19486421._SX50_.jpg|23811929] and then we learn that we're going to get two books in a year? Well, really one book big enough to be split into two more normally sized books. I actually put off reading [b:Peace Talks|49381341|Peace Talks (The Dresden Files, #16)|Jim Butcher|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1579336858l/49381341._SY75_.jpg|40515430] until [b:Battle Ground|23106013|Battle Ground (The Dresden Files, #17)|Jim Butcher|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1587778549l/23106013._SY75_.jpg|42654036] was out and really, that's the best way to read these books. They really are two halves of a whole and the better for it.

It's fascinating to get glimpses of the bigger world, with all of the major players coming into town for 'peace talks' (we all know how that's going to go). We don't get as much of the bigger scenes as I would have liked and Dresden certainly takes not talking to or trusting anyone to an art form, but he's certainly got his reasons. I really do wonder what McCoy's beef with the Vampires is. Just a long life to fight them? Something more?

In the end though, it's all about family.

Now I want to go back and listen to the audiobook version! ( )

This story rocketed forward with even more speed than most Dresden books, and I read it at equal speed. I don't think I've finished any other Dresden book in less than 48 hours. The cost of the pace was less character development than some of the other books, but we get to see virtually all the familiar friends and enemies at one point or another.

The threat level in this book gets cranked *way* up, but to say anything else would be a spoiler.

NOTE: If you haven't yet read "Cold Case" in the "Brief Cases" anthology you'll want to do that before starting this one, otherwise you won't understand the condition of one of the characters. It won't make any difference to your understanding of the plot, but it adds some otherwise missing context. ( )

Good start to a story, but didn't really stand alone. Fortunately the sequel is out now. ( )
