Review of Cold Days (Dresden Files Book 14) by Jim Butcher

I had to put the book aside for a few days before writing a review. Otherwise it was going to read like this:

                “OMGthatwassoamazingcanyoubelievewhathappenedandthenwhathappenednextHarryDresdenrocks

Ilovethesebookssomuchandthisisthebestofthemall!”

After a few days, I still pretty much feel that way.

The basic plot is that Harry is alive and is now the Winter Knight to Mab. Plus, on the side, he needs to save the world. And remember, nothing in faerie is ever what it seems. Fabulous Harry-ness ensues.

My favorite quote from the book:

                “I’ll add that to my list, then. Find whoever it is, wherever they are, and stop them from doing something they haven’t done yet.”

I could go on (and on, and on, and on) but I’ll just say I lost a lot of sleep reading this book and it was worth every moment.

Oh, and Cat Sith is awesome. Jim Butcher just keeps getting better and better.

Read this book! Buy, beg, or borrow a copy.

I give it 5 stars.

Review of Ghost Story, by Jim Butcher

While re-reading Ghost Story in preparation for reading Cold Days, I realized Ghost Story had a lot of dry humor and snide side comments that I totally missed the first time around due to the frenzy of OMG! moments inherent in the story.

The story is great. The book is great. The plot twists and thickens with every chapter. Yes, yes, and yes!

It is also really, really funny! Well worth the time to read it again. Once the plot twists are not overloading the brain cells, the humor of Harry learning to be a spirit and the snarky asides he throws out come to the forefront to enjoy. It was almost like reading a new book.

Go see for yourself!

I give it 5 stars.
