Notes: Still deserving of the 5 star rating, very nice!

As Sarah J Maas fans say about their author; I’m trash for Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series. It’s fun, it’s entertaining, it’s quick light reading for hot summer days. The world building is great, the magic system is easy enough to understand (even if you don’t always agree with it, let alone like it) and the characters are so realistic you almost feel as though you’re there with them in the story.

This is book number 15, though it’s a collection of short stories, so of course I read it anyway. I think there was only one story referencing a book that I hadn’t read that I skipped (though I don’t recall which one, unfortunately), as I’m only on book six of the Dresden Files series.

For those who don’t know what Dresden Files is: it’s about a detective who solves unusual cases in chicago. The twist? He’s a wizard. And he’s listed in the phone book. He’s a sarcastic guy that likes helping innocent people so long as they have the money with which to pay him. Hey being a wizard isn’t easy, after all. Especially when there’s dangerous bad guys out to get you…

These stories all revolve around Harry’s universe, some of them funny, some of them serious. I’m very much hoping there’s going to be another anthology, because I like reading short stories set in my favorite character universes.

5/5 stars, and highly recommended to urban fantasy fans.

Until next time,
