    Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (AFHeart)
    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)

Harry jumps from frying pan to fire and back again so many times in this book that I was almost exhausted by the suspense of it all. However, it did keep my engagement while listening to the audiobook on a long road trip. A bonus to that being the awesome narration of James Marsters. If you have the ability, give this a listen instead of a read. Rated a full star extra because of James. ( )

I enjoyed the story. I still have a bit of a tough time with Harry's "chivalry" but the fact that he fully admits he's sort of a sexist but because he wants to treat a woman well and protect her helps me not want to punch him sometimes. But this book did have him feeling sorry for himself quite a bit. I feel like he did that in the last one, too, but it's been awhile.

I will probably read the next in the series at some point. I do like the characters and the story lines are dark and fun. ( )

Murphy completely ruined this book for me. ( )

I found this to be a mediocre follow-up to the first book in the series. I felt the characters had become more one-dimensional and the story less interesting.

As you might guess from the title, Harry Dresden, Wizard, is dealing with werewolves in this part of the Dresden files. There are some interesting additions to werewolf lore but no interesting additions to Harry or his world.

James Marters' reading adds a deep world-weary tone to the audiobook. ( )

Harry is stretched past his limits in this confrontation between his power and the assorted variety of werewolves that populate this novel. I was very interested in the kinds of magic Harry was able to do and also a bit overwhelmed with the very graphic nature of the violence. ( )
