Wow!! These Dresden Files books just keep getting better. This one is non-stop action, you barely get a chance to catch your breath. Harry has to deal with the Nightmare, an evil that attacks in your dreams. It seems to be targeting Harry and those who are close to him. The plot is multi-layered and keeps you involved. I loved the character of Michael and his feisty wife Charity. Not sure that I like the direction of Harry and Susan's relationship and all I can say about the ending is YIKES!! Absolutely fantastic book!!!
While I loved the new characters introduced, this series entry seemed a bit frantic and disjointed as if there was so much going on there wasn't enough time to cover it all in enough detail. Still a really fun read in a really fun series, though. :)
I actually had a hard time staying with this book in the first 100 pages or so and thought about abandoning the series all together. I am very glad I trudged ahead! The beginning seems to be setting the background, etc... and if you stay with it becomes a very interesting story, indeed. Sign me up for book #4!
This is Book 3 of the Dresden Files.
This series just keeps getting better and better. I really enjoyed the addition of a new character, Michael. He is a God-fearing, giant-sword-toting family man. He can also hold his own in a fight.
In this book the plot gets a lot more complicated. There is no shortage of action, political intrigue, mortal and spiritual danger, moral quagmires, kidnapping, and a lot of fighting. In addition to all of that, there is a very nasty ghost on the loose who is terrorizing people in their sleep. And those people happen to be Harry's friends.
Harry continues to develop as a character and continues to get himself stuck in impossibly complicated situations. This is a must-read book in a must-read series and I highly recommend it.
A demon is attacking people in their dreams and Wizard Harry Dresden is out to stop it. This demon seems to be targeting Harry's closest friends, including Lt. Karin Murphy. Now Harry must find out who is responsible for calling up this demon and stop it.
Harry has help from several new characters, including Michael and Thomas. I felt like Michael had a huge backstory that I somehow missed. This story also begins a huge story arc for this series. My rating: 4 Stars.
