A wizard and a true Knight of the Cross battle against evil,
This review is from: Grave Peril (The Dresden Files) (Mass Market Paperback)
Jim Butcher (Storm Front, Fool Moon) goes from strength to strength in this his third book in the Harry Dresden saga. The boundaries between the teeming streets of Chicago and the Never Never grow ever thinner and cause problems for our hard pressed Wizard P.I. Together with his friend Michael, a true Knight of the Cross, Harry races to save dozens of lives from a tormented ghost intent upon sucking the life out of babies in the local hospital's nursery.
A glimpse into the ghost's motivations reveals that it is being tortured and used to do the dirty deed, but who could force a ghost this powerful to do anything? That's what Harry must find out and put a stop to, but old alliances are tenuous things, and the police are acting very oddly toward him indeed. He cannot rely upon their help. Harry turns to another source for his information--his fairy Godmother. The same Godmother who not only wants to separate him from the girl he loves, but also wants to enslave him for eternity.
Grave peril is book three in the harry Dresden saga, but as another reviewer pointed out it can stand on its own merits. That's not to say it should. Readers will definitely benefit from reading this series in order: Storm Front, Fool Moon, Grave Peril.
