5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Butcher still in top form!, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold Days: The Dresden Files, Book Fourteen (Hardcover)
If I have any complaint about Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series it's that the books don't come out frequently enough.

This is the latest instalment, and after fourteen novels and assorted short stories Butcher not only continues to deliver top notch, witty but gripping urban fantasy, but manages to up the suspense and the stakes and keeps you compulsively turning the pages to see what happens next.

'Cold Days' sees Harry Dresden take on the mantle of the Winter Knight, pledged to serve the seriously menacing 'Mab, Queen of Winter' who's intentions are unclear and possibly maleficent, and he ends up battling the greatest threat he's ever faced.

If you haven't read any Dresden Files, you probably shouldn't read this book. Start at the beginning with "Storm Front" and read the novels in order, because there's a major story arc that progresses through the series. Having now finished "Cold Days", I can't wait for the next novel to see how things will develop from here.

If you like Dresden, you may want to read Kim Harrison's "Hollow" series, Bendedict Jacka's "Alex Verus" novels or Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid" series. They're good reads and help fill the void while waiting for Dresden's next adventure.
