Genre: urban fantasy

Verdict: predictable

Still fast-paced. Still a page turner. Still a pleasure to read. But... maybe I've read too many Jim Butcher books by now... this book is predictable. By about chapter three or so I already know who the bad guy is. Well, other than Shagnasty and company, that is. Now, that is a term for the bad guys that sounds nice to my ears... Shagnasty... Butcher do invent entertaining words like that. I guess it is one of those things that makes his story-telling so wonderful.

My favourite character in the Dresden series is Mouse. And here is a picture which closely resembles my idea of Mouse.

The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council--and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden.
Now, Harry must uncover a traitor within the Council, keep a less-than-agreeable Morgan under wraps, and avoid coming under scrutiny himself. And a single mistake may cost someone his head--someone like Harry.

  1. The thing with Dresden, is even if I see it coming, I still LOVE IT!
    I just read this and thought it was brilliant, managed a couple of good surprises tho' I did see the traitor as inevitable.
