drey's thoughts:
Well. You know how sometimes you pick up a book based on the title, and then you read it and find out that the title didn't quite fit the book? I know I have, and it's soooooo disappointing when that happens. Thought I'd mention it, because the twelfth book in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, is definitely aptly named!

Harry's past comes back to haunt him, and he finds a major surprise behind door #1. Behind door #2 is the Red Court going on the offensive. Door #3 opens to reveal fissures in the White Council. Unluckily for Harry, all three doors spill open at the same time. And Harry is running around trying to figure things out while trying to stay alive and stop the Red Court. You know, par for the course.

I'm really glad to see that this isn't one of those series that starts to wilt and wither once you get to book 7 or 8... As it is, I'm now totally looking forward to #13, and I'm off to stalk Mr. Butcher!

Hey Drey,
I think I started with #8 of this series. Leave it to me to jump right in the middle of it. I enjoy Butcher's work a lot. Although, I need to reread some of his earlier book in the series.

Stalking Mr. Butcher. Hmmmm.....He is a very lucky guy!!

Have a great weekend my friend.
Steve

Steve--I like this series much much better than the Codex Alera... Harry is just such a neat character. :)

Angela--I'll have to check it out! :)

Hey drey,
I just finished Changes. Woot,Woot!!! Thing is I knew how some of the story would end but I still wasn't ready for it. In fact my finger kept pushing the page forward button of my nook but I was truly at the end of the book. I am glad I have Ghost Story waiting in the wings.

Take care my friend. Have a good week.
Steve

Yay Steve!!! :) Let me know what you think of Ghost Story! I wasn't sure I liked it in the beginning because I couldn't see how it would end well for Harry. But don't worry, Mr. Butcher comes through for us!! :)
