Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Butcher...spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally-charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry’s wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot. Booklist (starred review)
What’s not to like about this series?...It takes the best elements of urban fantasy, mixes it with some good old-fashioned noir mystery, tosses in a dash of romance and a lot of high-octane action, shakes, stirs, and serves. SF Site
A tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic. Longtime series fans as well as newcomers drawn by the SciFi Channel’s TV series based on the novels should find this supernatural mystery a real winner. Library Journal
What would you get if you crossed Spenser with Merlin? Probably you would come up with someone very like Harry Dresden, wizard, tough guy and star of [the Dresden Files]. The Washington Times
One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves. Cinescape
Superlative. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Fans of Laurell  K. Hamilton and Tanya Huff will love this series. Midwest Book Review  
Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe. Entertainment Weekly
Ghost Story is a high-octane addition to the series, and Butcher keeps pushing Harry to the edge in a way that makes the next volume something to anticipate eagerly.” Booklist (starred review)
“An intense ride…This stunning, exciting series entry with its heart-stopping action will shock and thrill.” Library Journal
“Narrator James Marsters returns to the series with his repertoire of voices and Harry’s attitude intact. He portrays the sardonic Harry with his usual world-weary outlook plus an extra dose of frustration that his magic is not working. Marsters is particularly effective with dialogue as Harry works with his friends to find answers. Prior experience with the series will enhance understanding of the plot and the relationships between the characters.” AudioFile
