Harry has to fight white vampires, black vampires...

Jim Butcher doesn't let up in Blood Rites

Very interesting... I have to say, Dresden is imaginative as hell in his insults... not so much in his pet names.

I liked this book, but it kinda fell off from the last two, which I really enjoyed. I was interested in the main story, but the setting was kinda... gratuitous. Gratuitous. Yep, that's the word.

Anyway, this was good, but not the best in the series in my opinion. I do like some of the developments in Dresden's life, though, so here's to the next book. :D

Dresden goes through more crap, has the worst luck ever, then finds he actually does have a family. Nicely done, Jim Butcher. Nicely done.

At least Harry apologises for his chauvinism these days. Thomas is wonderful, Harry shows some real growth as a person, and finds out he's not invincible, coming out of this one with serious consequences. I found the plot a bit wobbly, but not as confusing as the first couple of books, and the world building and continuity are again very well handled. These last two are where Dresden really shines, it's internally consistent, and you never know who from earlier books will be popping up again or where. By this point in the series, picking up a Dresden book is like putting on a cosy cardigan - it ain't the most exciting thing in the world, but you know it'll do the job, and it's friendly and familiar.

I was exceedingly disappointed with the changes to the Dresden / Murphy dynamic in this one. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil anything, but I expected better after the high quality of Death Masks.
