Review: White Night

White Night
White Night by Jim Butcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: Fans of Urban Fantasy

My Thoughts: Shit is really hitting the fan now, Dresden followers. The war is heating up, the vampires are attacking and killing children, and someone is tracking down and murdering women who are magic-users, while making it look like suicide. Darkness... and Harry is, as always, right in the middle of it.

However, you can’t go wrong with a little Bohemia Polka, which Butters has playing upon his first appearance. This is always a great thing, my friends... I wish there had been more Butters in this book, but you take what you can get.

This book takes a curve and runs with it. I have forgotten how the next one goes, but I have a feeling it’s a bit lighter. We shall see...

Disclosure: I purchased this book in hardcover for myself, and backup e-book copy. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis: Professional wizard Harry Dresden is investigating a series of deaths in Chicago. Someone is killing practitioners of magic, those incapable of becoming full-fledged wizards. Shockingly, all the evidence points to Harry's half-brother, Thomas, as the murderer. Determined to clear his sibling's name, Harry uncovers a conspiracy within the White Council of Wizards that threatens not only him, but his nearest and dearest, too...

  1. I'm a huge fan of Jim Butcher and the Dresden Files. Fantastic series and a must read for anyone that likes fantasy.

    The last time I was at a book signing by Pat Rothfuss, I found it interesting that he was a big fan of Butcher as well. Pat also mentioned that he wished he would have thought of that series idea on his own. (BTW, if you haven't read "Name of the Wind", put it on your must read list.)

    1. Oh, I really agree. If you look back at the review I posted last week for the first book in the series, you'll see that I said "this is the urban fantasy by which I judge all urban fantasy" or something to that effect. I love these books. This is at least my 2nd read-through of the books up to book 12 (and some of the earlier ones I've read 3 times) and they never grow old!

      I actually do have Name of the Wind on my wishlist! I have a lot of books to read before I die. Do you know any helpful vampires? I could use a few hundred more years... Heh.
