Cold Days…

Cold Days is the latest book in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. So Harry is alive again and now he’s the Winter Knight. The enforcer for Mab, the crazy queen of the Winter Fairies. Maybe staying dead was the better option. So what’s the first thing Mab orders Harry to do? Kill an immortal, whilst fighting an [...]




The Dresden Files: Ghost Story…

Ghost Story is the latest book in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. Spoiler Alert. Don’t read on if you are currently reading the series and haven’t got to this book yet. It’s hard to talk about the book without doing a bit of a spoiler.   At the end of the last book Harry [...]




The Dresden Files: Side Jobs

Side Jobs is a collection of short stories about characters from The Dresden Files series. Many of the stories have been published previously on the internet or in anthologies, so it’s not really new. It’s kinda hard to describe the book because it contains a mix of stories of varying length and quality. Some are [...]




The Dresden Files: Changes…

Oh my word. What an intense book. Jim Butcher threw just about everything at you with this one. I think Changes is probably my favorite of The Dresden Files series because it kinda brings everything together from all the other books. It feels very much like it should be the last book in the series, [...]




Turn Coat…

Turn Coat (book 11 of The Dresden Files) is another non-stop barrage of action and magic. It ties up some loose ends from previous books, but also leaves a few dangling. That is the last in the series (in paperback). These books are like catnip, so I’m planning to manage my withdrawal by reading Unseen Academicals, which is [...]




Small Favour…

Small Favour (book 10 of The Dresden Files) is about as intense as they come. It’s like most of the elements of the previous 9 books have been thrown into a blender and produced a perfect cocktail. It’s just an endless onslaught of Fairie Queens, Fallen Angels, Gangsters and now Harry has the attention of [...]




White Night…

I was a little hesitant when I started reading White Night (Book 9 of The Dresden Files). Proven Guilty had been so good I though this book could only be a let down. Fortunately it wasn’t. Non-stop action, overcoming insurmountable odds and a liberal dose of magic thrown in. Sweet. Cheers Tim…




Dead Beat…

In Dead Beat (book 7 of The Dresden Files), Harry is in the middle of a power struggle between some seriously bad-ass black magic practitioners who want to turn themselves into Gods. Since the last episode, his puppy has turned into something resembling a small woolly mammoth. Cheers Tim…




Blood Rites…

In Blood Rites, book 6 of The Dresden Files, Harry works on the set of a porn film, gets himself a pet dog and finds he has a long lost half-brother. All that and he manages to fight some Black Court vampires, almost make friends with the White Court vampires and continue being at war [...]




Fool Moon and Summer Knight (The Dresden Files)…

As I mentioned in a previous post, I lost my first copy of Fool Moon in New Zealand, so after finishing Grave Peril I skipped back and finished Fool Moon, then moved on to Summer Knight. The books do make some references to previous events, so reading them out of order was not the best [...]
