This was the second book in the Dresden Files, by Jim Butcher. Again, I listened to it via Audible, and like the first book, this was read by James Marsters.
I’m not sure where to begin. Again, I enjoyed this story very much. It’s delicious and somewhat light. I only listened to it when driving by myself, and it helped me get out the door, looking forward to my daily commute. That should say something about how much I enjoyed it.
This story was similar in feel and tone to Storm Front, but the stakes were amped up just a bit. Jim Butcher was quite a bit more cruel to his hero in this book. It’s something I took note of, because I think I need to be a tad more cruel to my own characters.
As I’m typing this, I’m downloading book 3. As I said with my review of Storm Front, I appreciated the first person approach to this story, and I’m looking forward to employing it with my own project for NaNoWriMo.
I’m not going to give any spoilers away. The world is rich and believable, and by way of comparison, a bit grittier and harder than what we saw in Storm Front. I’m looking forward to seeing if the trend of greater stakes and greater peril increases in Grave Peril.
