Review: Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry

Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry
Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry by Jim Butcher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free eARC of this book from NetGalley.

Dresden rocks! It is so very cool to get a dose of the Dresden Files during the wait between novels of the main series.

In this one, we go back a few books. This story is set after Dead Beat, so spoilers will appear in this review and in the graphic novel if you haven't read that far.

Here, we return to the time that the White Council were at war with the Red Court and Harry had just been made a Warden. Here, Dresden is joined by Ramirez, Wild Bill Meyers, and Yoshimo to take on a group of Red Court vampies led by a typically sinister baddie. Excitement and lots of fighting ensue.

I really don't know how much a new person to the Dresden universe would get out of this, but to a fan that's read everything available, it's a treat. The artwork is excellent and Butcher's voice is definitely there among the writers. (Audio fans might appreciate that I could hear James Marsters in my head when Harry talked.)

A great chapter to help us get by until Peace Talks.
