  • What Dresden readers have come to expect.

    Forzare! While Peace Talks was tepid, Battle Ground by Jim Butcher is on fire. Literally. And the storyline in this one is excellent too. ;) Whenever you come into a series, but especially a fantasy series, after five books there is way too much to explain in a review. And the Dresden Files is on book 17, I don’t think a lot of authors can boast about that feat. So I won’t be getting into many details, besides if you’re a long time fan, you’re going to want to read it yourself with no spoilers. And if you’ve never read any of the Dresden Files before, you need to start with the first book, Storm Front. And you can thank me later! I will say all of my complaints about Peace Talks have mostly been rectified. Harry isn’t a hormonal teen in regards to the Winter Mantle, he’s way too busy fighting for his and everyone else’s lives. Although I think Butcher still managed to mention it a couple of times. The repetition was not nearly as prevalent, but for the love of Cthulhu, we all get it, Butters is a small, but mighty man. And I still needed more Bob. But, Battle Ground was so excellent, and exactly what a Dresden Files book should be. Butcher was able to finally lay to bed a character that was problematic for where the books are heading. And I really can’t say I was sad about it, which actually shocked, since I cried a bit at various other things in the book. Cried?!? Yes, some of the things in there intersected with the actual world we’re living in right now. You can look at the deeper meaning in Battle Ground, or not look as close and just enjoy the story. The fight scenes are epic, and I do not use epic often. I want to write so much more about them, but you really need to read all the surprises for yourself. But I will leave you with, pizza has more than paid for itself over the years. And that is just a teensy part of all the combat. And with any good Dresden Files book we are left with new alliances and new enemies. Oh, and Harry has a lab again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Battle Ground

    In one word. Epic. An amazing read as many plot points finally begin paying off and start getting tied together to weave yet another literary treat. Well worth the wait

  • Disappointing

    Characters didn't feel like themselves anymore. Just felt like they were behaving differently to make the plot work. A bunch of things were tacked on at the end of the book that made no sense.

  • A totally emotional read

    This book is a little hard to read. There is a lot of darkness and terribleness and sadness to get through. It is also wonderful to read. Harry is who he is, and he is fully, honestly him. There is love and sweetness and cheesy pop culture references to enjoy. There is a lot resolved, and so much not, but it’s all satisfying in the end, and it also makes the reader ache to learn what happens next. Jim Butcher really knows how to spin a tale!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Should have hired an editor

    I was looking forward to the most recent episodes of Dresden. But when I saw we were getting 2 books inside of 3 months, I had some misgivings. When I read them, they were confirmed. 16 and 17 should have been one very heavily edited book rather than the two we got. They are repetitive and self-indulgent. I'm disappointed.

    Thanks for your feedback!
