Small Favour by Jim Butcher

So on book ten, that’s a fair bit into the series now. As per usual there are two current predicaments for Harry. The first is that the Summer Court is out to get Harry and he is not sure why. The other part is that Mab wants Harry to rescue Marcone and so calls in …

White Night by Jim Butcher

It’s getting harder to review these the further you go into the series. This one is mostly concerned with the White Court and a series of murders of lesser practitioners of magic around a few US cities. All the signs point to Thomas but Harry doesn’t believe it to be the case and there must …

Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher

Another good book in the series. I consider this entry to be in the ‘main’ storyline of the series, if there is one, though I could be wrong. There are two threads, the first being Harry asked to look into what is happening in faerie to see why the Winter and Summer courts are not …

Dead Beat by Jim Butcher

It’s getting more difficult to review these as due to being on the seventh book spoilers are harder to avoid. As usual things start off relatively calm with Harry. He’s been living with Thomas for a year which is driving him crazy but then Mavra shows up and blackmails him with evidence on Murphy that …

Blood Rites by Jim Butcher

Another enjoyable adventure with Chicago’s finest PI. Harry is asked by the vampire Thomas to help him out as he owes him one or two favours. He wants him to investigate a few bizarre accidents that have been killing people on the production set of a porno film. As usual things escalate pretty quickly and …

Death Masks by Jim Butcher

Another very solid entry in the series. In this one Harry continues with the fallout from book 3 and the war with the red court. In addition to this he has also been commissioned by the Church to retrieve a very important Catholic item that has been stolen. We have a host of returning characters …

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher

This is definitely the best Dresden book I’ve read yet. People have mentioned they get better after the first three and considering I really enjoyed those I had high expectations of this. I still can’t really define what was better, the basic bones of the story are similar to the previous but it feels more …

Grave Peril by Jim Butcher

The third book sees Harry Dresden, Wizard face off against even greater odds. I won’t say what he’s up against as that would be spoilers but there were a few times I was wondering how the hell he would get out of it. The story starts off with a plague of ghosts infecting Chicago and …

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher

Another very solid book, I think I preferred it to the first book. This book, as you may guess from the title, revolves around werewolves. We have a series of gruesome murders, which all lead Harry to a mad series of situations with different groups of the aforementioned werewolves. We have the same cast of …

Storm Front By Jim Butcher

I’d heard a lot of things about this series, it’s often mentioned as the best urban fantasy around so I thought I’d finally give it a go. I’d also heard that the series doesn’t really get going until the third book so my expectations weren’t too high. It centers around a wizard PI called Harry …
