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 Story reads 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

Ghost Story
Ghost Story - Jeff Brackett

by Jeff Brackett

 

This starts a little clunky as if the author is trying to shovel in too much information quickly, then settles into an even flow by the end of the first chapter. A ghost hunting team is investigating a house reported to be haunted. One of them is a psychic, balanced by the group sceptic. A full team with modern equipment sets up.

 

By the second chapter, the fun starts. I'm not going to go into what happens because there's a surprise ending and the potential for spoilers is too great, but I will say that lots does happen and I was at the edge of my seat for most of it.

 

I should add a trigger warning. No animals were hurt in the making of this story. Anything else is fair game. Normally a story like this would have exceeded my own violence tolerance, but the way it flowed just made it work too well. Characters were developed as much as you could expect in a short story but it is mostly action driven. I was scared for the main protagonist all the way to the end, and maybe even beyond.

 

The author's afterword was interesting as well. It tells the context that the idea for the story came in and mentions a familiar author involved in the same project. That in itself added a whole new dimension to the story.

 

If you want something to make you jump at every little noise in the house at night, read this one.

Well, that turned all wholesome and happy by the end. I think Dave morphed into another person. The real Dave would have pretended to be okay after hearing that secret and then kept his daughter at arm's length.

The mom (Jean, I think) to her kids, Molly and Michael:

 

"I tried to talk to Dave about [Heather] before you all came home, but he said I wasn't trying. He said I didn't love her enough."

 

Okay, why did Jean and Dave get married? Not only is Dave doing nothing to help his obviously troubled 7-year-old daughter ("shrinks mess up your head" or something), he's a terrible husband as well.

"'You know, though, Molly, that Dave and I count on you and Michael to take care of Heather. It's up to you to make sure she doesn't run wild in the woods all day.'"

 

OMG, I hate these parents. The mom seems to know that Heather hates everyone in the family except Dave, her dad, so she must know that all of Heather's claims about how mean Molly and Michael are to her are lies. And she still makes the bulk of the work involved in watching out for Heather Molly and Michael's responsibility. If something happens to Heather, you know they're going to blame the 12- and 10-year old they told to watch the 7-year old, instead of thinking "Hey, maybe us adults could have switched off between working on our art and actually watching out for our kids."
