Harken To My Inconsequential Words
on 4 May 2016
I have a secret love, a love that dare not speak it's name, a love of the Dresden Files that defies all of my concentrated serious fantasy reading sensibilities. I have loved pretty much every book in the series, until this long winded, horribly paced, awful addition to the canon came along and made me stop reading half way through. I tried to stay awake, but it was such a deviation from the previous books, it was too much: I gave in and placed it where it rightfully deserves to be in the complete collection, but only because I am anally retentive and want the whole set on my shelves.
I advise anyone else who is a fan of Dresden and his '48 hours' to save the world themed books, to go on-line, read a plot spoiler for this book, and move straight on to the excellent and possibly best book in the series so far 'Cold Days'.
