The Dresden Files are behaving like London Buses. I've waited six years since I read 'Skin Game' and now we have two books coming along almost together: 'Peace Talks' published today and 'Battle Ground' scheduled for the end of September.
I'm only at the set up of 'Peace Talks' but I'm already remembering why I loved these books. I'm glad I won't have to wait more than a few weeks for the next one.
The first time I read this book I loved it but in my rush to devour the words I missed parts of the storyline and when all was read and done and my usual reflection was made I realised I hadn't quite got the why of it all. The thing is, so much happens in Summer Knight the multistories tying up all magically with Dresden typical style. So this time I took my time, and it was just as awesome and epic as the first time but with the added bonus of lightbulbs going off in my head. Dude can write!
This is book 3 in the series and it was just as exciting as the previous book. Abel worthe has yet again added a new ghost, new structure, and new subject to the village. While trio is meeting the newest subject and figuring out their next move, there is a lot going on behind the scenes that they are unaware of. As abel worthe's experiment continues, his once well disciplined and dedicated staff is falling apart as there seems to be a loss in order and staff start taking matters into their own hands. With every battle and ghost the subjects face, you really get to see their strength and resiliency. As I'm reading i keep wondering just how much more can these characters take. This book will have you on the edge of your seat while rooting for the people trapped in the experiment to succeed.
Ghost Story The Dresden Files #13 Jim Butcher (Narrator: James Marsters) Urban Fantasy - Science Fiction Fantasy Penguin Audio April 21, 2015 Audiobook 17 hours and 36 minutes Library
When an unknown someone shoots him and leaves him to die, Harry Dresden hopes he might be heading to a better place. Unfortunately being dead doesn't make Harry's life any easier.
Trapped between life and death, he learns that his friends are in serious trouble. Only by finding his murderer can he save his friends and move on - a feat that would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Worse still are the malevolent shadows that roam Chicago, controlled by a dark entity that wants Harry to suffer even in death.
Now the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic - or face an eternity as just another lost soul....
Ghost Story is book Thirteen in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher and narrated by James Marsters.
Well the surprises keep coming. Several months have passed since Harry’s death tho his body has yet to be recovered. In the meantime, the world has changed and Chicago has gone to shit.
Harry has awakened to find himself somewhere in the in-between. As he goes on this journey in-between life and death lots is revealed to Harry and the reader. As he journeys to find his killer we see how his death has affected the world and his friends. The world has changed after the Death of the Red Court, how screwed up Chicago is without him, and what has become of his friends. My heart broke for his friends. His death has messed up Molly and I’m worried about her. Murphy isn’t doing well either. Murphy, Butters, and the werewolves have joined forces to try and keep Chicago together and protected.
There is no shortage of surprises revealed. We get evil ghosts and many battles. Harry finding himself powerless and a noob in this in-between life and as usual Harry risks much to bend the rules. He comes to terms with things and I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here.
As always Butcher weaves a marvelous tale with danger, twists, and humor.
Narration: James Marsters did a superb job. He has become the voice of Harry. The audio is spectacular.
Ghost Storyreads like an ending to the series tho I know there are more stories in the series. We are treated to another amazing tale from the Dresden Files, which should NOT be read out of order!
Rated: 4.5 Stars
