I have no idea what to say about this book. I have been a little off the last week or two so I kind of glanced through this book and I am having a hard time remembering all the great things about this book so I'm sorry if this review is a little shorter than normal. What I can tell you is there are some parts in this that where blow my mind awesome. I will try to avoid taking about these so I don't spoil anything but they made this book really worth the read.
I love this series and look forward to each book in the series. This book has Harry a full Warden of the White Council doing what he can to protect Chicago as well as the world during the war with the Vampires. Harry has been asked by the council to look into some black magic that has been happening in the city. some movie monsters have come off the silver screen and are attacking people so Harry has to figure out what is going on before more people get hurt.
I will be the first to admit that this series is kind of cookie cutter. Harry has plenty of one liners and tries really hard to be a loner but has an extended family that he can't live with out. The fact that this is cookie cutter is one of the things I love about these books. I know what to expect and I can turn my mind off and enjoy the ride. There may have been a few slower parts but Jim Butcher always seems to find a way to send goosebumps rushing up my arms with excitement.
I really liked this book but I can't give it a full 5 stars in the review. This gets 4 out of 5 stars. The reason I couldn't give this a full 5 is because I did start to forget this book right after I finished it. That is probably on me because I admitted that I wasn't in the right mind frame for reading. I will give this a year read in the future and I hope to be able to change my rating to a 5. I wish I had more interesting things to say about this book but the things I remember are what I would consider spoilers. Anyone who reads my blog knows I hate spoilers and avoid them at all cost. I will say that even thought it is brief we do get Michael back in this book and I really like his character. He and Harry are great together.
