Cold Days by Jim Butcher


This is the sequel to Changes that you’ve been waiting for. While Ghost Story was an eerie intermission after the explosive events of Changes, a clever opportunity to step back and do some character development and world building, Butcher’s latest rises back up to the same level of high-octane storytelling. It’s intense, full of action […]

Ghost Story by Jim Butcher


If you’ve already read Changes (the twelfth book of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files), you know how shocking a few of its plot developments were. If you haven’t, stop reading before you run into some major spoilers. Yes, Harry Dresden—Chicago’s undead-fighting wizard detective—is now a ghost. After the deal he made with Queen Mab and […]

First Lord’s Fury by Jim Butcher


First Lord’s Fury brings Jim Butcher’s Roman-inspired fantasy epic The Codex Alera to a spectacular conclusion. Gaius Octavian returns to Alera, from the Canim lands across the sea, and is ready to do battle with the Vord.

The Vord have returned to Alera. The invading insectoids are more powerful than ever—now with Furycraft—and they’re quickly sweeping across Alera. The First Lord must stave-off the attack, despite his rapidly failing health. Convincing the High Lords to cooperate is quite an undertaking.

In Cursor’s Fury, the fourth novel in Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series, Tavi’s identity is finally reviewed. Who he is, and why he didn’t develop furycrafting abilities until so late in life. Astute readers may have already figured out his parentage and the political ramifications, but the big secret comes out in the open during […]

Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher


Jim Butcher, author of the ever-entertaining Dresden Files books, has a lesser-known fantasy series that I finally got around to starting. The Codex Alera, as it is called, is set in a sword-and-sorcery type world (with it’s own unique twists on a usual trope, of course) and is quite the departure from the famous sardonic […]

Death Masks by Jim Butcher


Death Masks is the 5th book in the Dresden Files series, but only the 2nd book that I thought was awesome. The other is Fool Moon. It starts out a little aggravating, since there is still too much emphasis on vampires for my taste. There is a funny scene with Harry Dresden to be interviewed […]
