ghost story

Not sure how I did it, but I managed to finish reading "Ghost Story" last night. What a read! I adore the Dresden Files series and this latest addition to Harry's stories is great fun.

Action. Action. Action.  One thing Jim Butcher does really well is to keep the pace of his plots at break-neck speed. Harry barely has time to regroup before the next dire event happens. The most dire event happened in the final pages of the last book. Harry was shot and fell into Lake Michigan off of his brother's boat.

This book opens with Harry in an afterlife experience and he chooses to return to Chicago as a ghost. Quite a bit has happened since Harry and team wiped out the Red Court vampires at Chichen Itza. The power vacuum left when that court was destroyed has enabled some nasty creatures to make life in the Windy City quite miserable.

I don't want to spill any more details than that, but be assured that if you enjoy this series, this title carries on the Harry Dresden tradition in fine style.
