    AFHeart: Like Dresden, the book is about a loner with parental issues who has natural powers. In the Kate Daniels series she is not used to having friends or trusting others because of her natural magic. Also like Dresden there is sexual tension but realistic, there is violence in fighting demons but it is not gory for the sake of gore. Kate Daniels books have more world building.… (more)

So many types of werewolves... ( )
  ladypembroke | Nov 22, 2014 |
The second in Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, an urban fantasy series featuring Chicago wizard, Harry Dresden. This time Harry is up against a killer who has an MO with many of the traits of a werewolf. Although the mystery in this story is good, what draws me to this series is this magical world intertwined with our world. Jim Butcher does an excellent job of not giving long exhausting details about his world and all of the rules that go along with it. Instead he feeds you minute small pieces that relate to the plot of the current mystery. It definitely has drawn me in enough that I want to continue the series just to add more color to this intriguing world. I love the narration by James Marsden. He has a scratch breathy voice that adds to the gritty urban fantasy world. ( )

I wish these Dresden files books had a different structure. My preference was for Murphy and Harry to keep the inquiry they're working on in preliminary stages and then solve the case in the last five chapters. I loved that side of the story in book one also. I got to know more about Harry. I know there is unfinished business between him and his past and the Nevernever. The big flaw in the book is the drawn out bloodless (figuratively) skirmishes that constituted the finale in this adventure. For, make no mistake, adventure it is. I genuinely think that The Dresden Files has more in common with the Jungle Books than with Fantasy elements. I'm thrilled to expect to be back on the trail for the next adventure. ( )

Murphy completely ruined this book for me. ( )

Chicago has become the stopping place for every type of werewolf you never knew existed! Now it is up to Harry Dresden, resident wizard, to sort them and settle them. If he can survive. Of course, everyone he cares about is in peril, mayhem results, life is nearly over, and yet, he pulls it out at the end. Sorry for the spoilers, but did you really think he wouldn't?

This is the second in the Dresden series, and by far the roughest. I really didn't like it the first time I read it, however, this time, it was not so bad. I'm not sure whether that was because of the excellent narration of James Marsters, or because I've read all of the Dresden novels and have the knowledge of what is to come to get me through this one. The plot is way over the top what with all the werewolves, Harry is too self-absorbed, Murphy is not Murphy yet, but it does lead one further into the series. ( )

Could a werewolf be loose in Chicago? Common sense says no. The grisly evidence says yes. So does Harry Dresden. And with his weird connections, he should know.
