Summer Knight is book 4 in The Dresden Files series. This novel treats us to the major powerhouses in the Dresden world: the Fae, the White Council, and the Vampires. It’s an illuminating installment both for the readers and Harry.

At the start of Summer Knight we are about 9 months from the events that took place in [b:Grave Peril|91476|Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, #3)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1266470209s/91476.jpg|803205] and war has happened between vampires and wizards. Harry starts out in a bad place, but by the end he’s transformed into a person better able to deal with the pitfalls tossed in front of him. He finally realizes some things and turns to friends. He gained insight and growth as a character.

A lot occurs during this novel. Several new characters are introduced over the course of the murder investigation into the Summer Knight. We are treated to Billy and the wolf pack from [b:Fool Moon|91477|Fool Moon (The Dresden Files, #2)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1345556849s/91477.jpg|855288]. They are around and helping Harry out. Harry finally trusts Deactivate Karen Murphy and shares everything with her. I was also thrilled to finally see him open up and share with Murphy. I was thrilled to finally meet and see the elusive White Council that we have heard of. I liked that we got additional information about Harry’s past and his first love, Elaine, who pops back up. And, last the mythology of the Fae is expanded on abundantly.

I found Summer Knight immensely entertaining and enjoyable. I liked the mystery, diging into Harry’s past, and I loved that Harry finally confided in Murphy.

Rated: 4 Stars

Sadly, I like his characters better than I like his style. I don't know that I care to read any more of this series. ( )

A wee bit of nifty floof. ( )

First re-read since my first read about 13 years ago.

I rather like the fact that Harry doesn't win 'em all. Makes him more human, more relatable. But it is kinda hard to see him this down in the dumps. Thankfully, there's a kick-ass climax, and there be faeries.

Summer, Winter, Red, White and Faerie Courts and Councils there's so much going on in this one! Overall I really enjoyed the book and narration is awesome. Yes, you need to get past certain noise James Marsters makes in his mouth ( )

This book is for big sisters everywhere who have enough patience not to strangle their little brothers - and particulary for my own sisters, who had more than most. I owe you both so much.
And for Mom, for reasons that are so obvious that they really don't need to be said - but I thought I would make special mention of candy cane cookies and that rocking chair that creaked me to sleep.

Sometimes the most remarkable things seem commonplace. I mean, when you think about it, jet travel is pretty freaking remarkable. You get in a plane, it defies the gravity of an entire planet by exploiting a loophole with air pressure, and it flies across distances that would take months or years to cross by any means of travel that has been significant for more than a century or three. You hurtle above the earth at enough speed to kill you instantly should you bump into something, and you can only breathe because someone built you a really good tin can that has seams tight enough to hold in a decent amount of air. Hundreds of millions of man-hours of work and struggle and research, blood, sweat, tears, and lives have gone into the history of air travel, and it has totally revolutionized the face of our planet and societies.

But get on any flight in the country, and I absolutely promise you that you will find someone who, in the face of all that incredible achievement, will be willing to complain about the drinks.

The drinks, people.
The last thing the twenty-first century wants to admit is that it might not know everything.
