Grave Peril | Jim Butcher
HARRY DRESDEN -- WIZARDLost items found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other EntertainmentHarry Dresden's faced some pretty terrifying foes during his career. Giant scorpions. Oversexed vampires. Psychotic werewolves. It comes with the territory when you're the only professional wizard in the Chicago area phone book.But in all Harry's years of supernatural sleuthing, he's never faced anything like this: the spirit world's gone postal. All over Chicago, ghosts are causing trouble -- and not just of the door-slamming, boo-shouting variety. These ghosts are tormented, violent, and deadly. Someone -- or something -- is purposely stirring them up to wreak unearthly havoc. But why? And why do so many of the victims have ties to Harry? If Harry doesn't figure it out soon, he could wind up a ghost himself....

Sorry Mr.Dresden, I think this one kinda drops a little. And I do hate how female characters are portrayed.

But, but, but I‘m gonna continue on the next book. I still have high hopes for you. 😉

I love The Dresden Files, but Jim Butcher is one of those men who shouldn‘t be allowed to write about women. They are almost all beautiful, all breasts, and all about sex even when the situation is dire. It‘s boring. This one isn‘t one of my favorites either as it seems like two separate stories.

KathyWheeler @Emilymdxn Seriously. It‘s the series‘ worst flaw. Even Murphy, who is a badass, gets described by Harry occasionally as “cute” and sexual. 7mo

Much better than the last book!! I am really enjoying this series so far. It has a wonderful cast of characters and I am loving the addition of Michael. Bob has still got to be my favorite though.

I have be listening to these on audio and I continue to be impressed with the narration. Marsters does a fantastic job of giving life to these characters.

I wanted to write one post on Litsy per day this year, but I'm already 5 days behind 😂 Ah well. I guess I'll need to catch up later.

I've been in the mood for the Dresden Files lately and have started a little re-read of the series. Maybe there will be some more news about the new volume Peace Talks until I'm done. Fingers crossed 😉

Mehhhh. I'm starting to think this series isn't for me. Conceptually, i should like it. Paranormal investigations, wizardry, a panoply of supernatural beings...but the writing, especially of the main character, drives me crazy. And gah the descriptions of woman *maximum eye roll* i might not pursue more. #mommyreads #fantasy #ghosts #vamps #ebook

Riveted_Reader_Melissa They actually get better as they go in my opinion, but yes the early books are very much a broad walks into my place, PI Noir 50‘s vibe. 1y

I read the first two books multiple times because I wasn't impressed and I promptly forgot everything about them. Everyone who recommends this series to me says this is the book it starts getting good and to just stick it out. I obviously didn't and had to restart the series again and again. So I decided to just start reading this one and it's miles better than the other two. I'm still not sold on Butcher as a good writer, but I might continue on.

This was on my Pinterest wall yesterday...It remains my absolute favorite moment in The dresden Files and I think this was the moment I fell so very much in love with the series!???

Michael: " I can't believe you came to the vampire ball dressed as a vampire"
Harry: Not just a vampire...a cheesy vampire" ????

This entry in the Dresden Files got a little confusing to me in places, but not enough to make me lose interest or the thread of the plot. I haven't met one of these books I didn't like yet. The characters, particularly Harry himself, are all fun/interesting and keep me reading.

My favorite of the 3 Dresden Files books I‘ve read, which I am sticking with because Spike narrates the audio versions. I like these, but I don‘t have the overwhelming love for them that others do. Harry is still a misogynist, but I think that my biggest complaint about this series is that Butcher can‘t write women for shit. Which would be fine if he didn‘t insist on writing them, but he does. Ugh. I‘m trying not to overanalyze & enjoy the good.

"I still can't believe," Micheal said sotto voce, "that you came to the Vampire's Masquerade Ball dressed as a Vampire."

Today's word could mean so many things to so many people, home, family, comfort, routine, safety from danger, ect but I often find #Shelter in laughter and sarcasm. As such I give you the literary king of sarcasm Harry Dresden.

I‘ve been bad with keeping up with my reading on my Litsy account. It‘s been showing me reading Grave Peril for a long time. In fact, I finished it a good ways back and even finished the book after Grave Peril.

The series definitely seems to level up with this installment. The best part of it is seeing Harry working with others instead of going all “lone wolf,” as he usually does.

While I've recognized that Jim Butcher can write a good story, I've not really understood the love even my best friends have for this series. Just finished chapter 13 of Grave Peril, and I finally get it. Jim called this a book a turning point for him and the series. It is. This is where it finally stops being just plot and gives some open, honest heart. I even think the reading by James Marsters takes a step up here, and he was already great.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes...and the books just get better as they go. Sadly you have to read through the first bunch to understand the love though. 3y
jpmcwisemorgan Oh....that's right James Marsters does the audio....hmmm.... 3y
DGRachel So, what I'm getting from this is that I should try reading the series again? I bailed on the first book. 3y
Seekingtardis I have only ever done these on audio, LOVE JAMES, I'm not sure I could have gotten through the first few without him. 3y

This series is really starting to come to life! This book is a lot darker than the other two, but I really liked it. The new characters are interesting and Dresden gets some depth that was lacking in the other books. Will start the next book soon!

Exciting stuff - more of the characters I remember are coming into play: Thomas and Justine, Michael and Charity, Father Foothill and Godmother Lea. This is the book where we learn a little about the Vampire Courts (and types of vampires) which will start to play a much larger part in future books. And it's morbid, but I did laugh when Bianca presented Harry with his tombstone 😂

TrishB There were loads of these in the charity shop I've just been in. I may go back and see if they have the first one! 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag There are loads in the series @TrishB - this is book three, and I feel that the writing is getting stronger (I don't think I found any flaws in them when I first read them - but I'm older and wiser now - so a few things grate) look for 3y
TrishB @thegirlwiththelibrarybag thanks, will go back tomorrow! 3y

When Dresden goes on about how good kissing Susan feels and I end up feeling like 😷 human bodies are so gross, and I have little tolerance for reading about how awesome they are right now. I have the urge to read some TF comics now. Maybe I'll reread Redemption because I've got a huuuuuge crush on Barricade right now. 🚓😍

Grimlock So a lot of comics will be added soon including Redemption which I will dig out, reread and review. Then I will curl up into a ball and cry. This one hurts so good. 3y

I was iffy on the first two Dresden Files books, but I really enjoyed this one. It's refreshing to read an urban fantasy where the main character faces real consequences. The world is starting to flesh out nicely, too. This isn't a meaty read, but it sure is fun!

The series really kicks into high gear in Grave Peril. Book is obviously setting up a letter arc, but nonetheless remains interesting on its own.
