Mostly, whatever I’m about to write will boil down to, “This is still my favorite Dresden Files book and it is so fun.”
Warning: free floating spoilers for events in the first fourteen books below.
In this book we have:
*Harry teaming up with his mortal enemies, the Denariians.
*Harry confronting his feelings for Murphy.
*Harry confronting his feelings and duties for his daughter.
*The Lasciel arc coming to a close, or rather a turn, with the development of the “parasite” plotline which is still my FAVORITE. Just thinking about makes me giggle with glee.
*A heist in hell.
*A book that is plotted like a caper, including with twists and reveals.
*A deepening of the mythology (literally) of Harry’s world.
*A fantastic arc for Butters.
I also finally got to listen to this by audio, and it was great, as per the usual.
And now, the wait for Peace Talks continues. (I am going to check out the second short fiction collection, Brief Cases, as well, as soon as my library can get it to me. Lots of people on the hold list for the audio.)
