HARRY DRESDEN IS BACK AND READY FOR ACTION, in the new entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files.
When the Supernatural nations of the world meet up to negotiate an end to ongoing hostilities, Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, joins the White Council's security team to make sure the talks stay civil. But can he succeed, when dark political manipulations threaten the very existence of Chicago--and all he holds dear?
Here is what I thought
I am just so excited that the author brought back Harry Dresden!!!!!!
Trying to figure out what to talk about and now spoil other books and plotlines in the previous books is pretty hard though…lol.
So tread lightly with reading this review there could be spoilers ahead!!
So even though it’s been a while in our years since the last book in the story it hasn’t been that long since the big showdown of the previous book and Murphy is in a bunch of cast and can’t do a whole lot. Harry hates seeing her like that and feels bad about what happened. The pot that has been boiling since the demise of the red court has Harry on thin ice with a lot of people who really hate him and then boom…Thomas does something extremely stupid!
So then it becomes a how far would you go to save a family member, what are you will to compromise on or who would you be willing to fight. Thomas tried to assassinate someone and the supernatural creature (of whom I can’t remember how to spell) well lets just say things don’t go well for Thomas and now he is being held by them and beaten very badly and Harry is going to do whatever he can to get him out of the mess he is in.
Meanwhile, there is a delegation of supernatural creatures which and it’s supposed to be neutral ground for everyone and Harry is on security detail not only for the white council but also for Mab and things don’t go so well.
I kind of feel like this book was a set up for what is going to happen in the next book Battle Ground and that sounds kind of finale but I hope it’s not as I would love more Dresden book!
I had a lot of fun being back in the world of Harry Dresden and being back with a lot of familiar characters. I adore Harry he is one of my all time favorite characters and I also love Murphy! We get Butters who always cracks me up and even some interesting time with the Vampire Queen! It’s just a fun series.
If you have read the Dresden Files series then what have you been doing! Go read it! 🙂
