Fun short featuring Harry's brother Thomas. ( )
  shaunesay | Jun 21, 2017 |
I SO needed a Dresden-related book while stuck in the "waiting for the next book in the Dresden series" to appear' doldrums!! That having been said, I love sexy, charismatic, loyal, "got y'er back, Harry" THOMAS RAITH . . and this little tome focused on Thomas. Yeehaw! Not nearly as in-depth as the full-length books . . not as heart-poundingly (is that even a word?) action-packed BUT, I'm not complaining! I enjoyed the quick read and was very pleased to have found Backup on my library's shelf! 4.5 stars .. rounded up to 5 --> C'mon goodreads, PLEASE add a half-star option!! ( )

I forgot to check to see if we had read it. D'oh. Oh well it was a very fast skim read.

Nice little book. Didn't really expand on Thomas' character that much. Nice tidbit to tide over until the next Dresden book. ( )

Ah, I love the change in POV! Reinforces that Harry just doesn't know everything that's going on, and the strength of his allies. ( )

Fun romp through the Harry Dresden-verse as seen through the eyes of his brother, Thomas Raith. Super fast read but something uber fans of The Dresden Files will adore.

3.5 stars ( )
