5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely excellent 12 Aug 2004
By J. Patterson VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its not often you can get to book 6 and feel you've barely scratched the surface of the characters, plot etc. yet still finish the book in one sitting. This is one of those series that just seems to gain in breadth and skill. As there's no write up i'll give a quick overview:
Harry Dresden is Chicago's only practicing wizard investigator and is listed in the yellow pages. Thomas (white vamp) wants him to investigate a case for him. A movie producer is being cursed, and people around him keep on dying in strange ways. Harry jumps right in and there's plenty of action on every page. Demons, puppies, vampires, police, mysterious assassins, wizards, succubi, it's all there.
We get to see more of his growing relationship with Murphy, Ebenezer and Kincaid ome back in and there are a few twists that were definitely a surprise and an ending that seems to move Harry in a different direction to where he has always been left before. This time his life will have changed forever.
Its hard to say more without ruining it - suffice to say if you liked any of the other books you'll love this one. If you're new start with book 1 and work through. It's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greater than the sum of its parts 3 Feb 2006
I have had the luck to discover the Dresden files series after Mr. Butcher was well underway with it, which means I got to read five of them in a row.
The series is characterised by workmanlike prose, a terrific protagonist, and complex plots. Best of all, Mr. Butcher is master of the backstory. Each of the books further unwinds the history of the main character, while not burdening the reader with much repetition. And he is adept at restraining himself from too much explanation; he gives the reader credit for being able to put the pieces together.
Very enjoyable reads, very inventive, fast paced, and well constructed. Note to Mr. Butcher: Write more!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! 25 Aug 2004
By Mia
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Harry's back for the sixth book in the series along with the familiar faces of Murphy, Ebenezer, Bob and a very cute new puppy! If you're new to Jim Butcher's books, do yourself a favour and buy Storm Front first(and the rest too!) as they follow on from each other and it does help to have the history as you're reading. This series is simply class though and is one of the few I've read that gets better with each book. All I can say is Write faster Mr Butcher and give us more Dresden!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting addition to the series 11 Nov 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a big fan of the Dresden Files but I have to say that this book left me a bit flat.
First a lot of family information gets revealed - but its just too easy. If you've read the rest of the books you understand that Harry has been trying directly and indirectly to find out about his parents for years and suddenly it given to him on a platter; its just not satisfying.
Second, the stakes in this novel are much lower than Summer Night and Death Mask. I just didn't get the same level of urgency from this novel. I have feeling that this book is a launching point for another story arc.
That said it was still much better the dross that LK Hamilton has descended to.

5.0 out of 5 stars another big hitter from Butcher 22 Sep 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another fantastic book in the Dresden file. Blood Lines delves much deeper into Harry's family past, which is something i have been waiting for since book 1, and it does it with style. Vampires, Blood Pacts, surprising twists, all the staples of the fantastic series are present!

5.0 out of 5 stars Each better than the last 31 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I avoided reading any of The Dresden Files books having been put off by seeing the appalling TV series with its dreadful miscasting. Thankfully after a few years the memories had faded sufficiently for me to try the first book and I am so glad I did. And I now wonder even more whatever the studio and casting director were thinking! If they were thinking at all. Anyway. Moving On.

The first five books were thoroughly entertaining. Well-written, beautifully crafted plots and a great cast of characters, not least the wizard himself. This one (Blood Rites) is the first for which I have written a detailed review, inspired through the brilliance of certain character developments and revelations. Very clever. I will not post any spoilers but the twists (all of them) were thoroughly satisfying and seamlessly woven into the series. Well done Mr Butcher.

Have to admit to being a bit biased about the Dresden books, they are in my estimation the very best in their genre.
