Ghost Story, by Jim Butcher
Chicago’s resident Wizard is back for another adventure. But this time Harry Dresden doesn’t have access to his magic. He’s dead. And he only has a short time to find his killer and save his friends left behind. Now just a ghost, Harry must find a way to communicate with his friends, keep away from memory-eating wraiths, and take down an impossibly powerful enemy.
This is the thirteenth installment in the Dresden Files series. Characters have changed considerably over the years. And Harry as a ghost is still the same person – with emotions and vulnerabilities, just without the powers. Butcher’s world of magic in a modern day has evolved and taken on a life of its own, setting it apart from others in the genre. The Dresden Files has certainly earned its reputation and popularity.
Harry’s latest adventure takes him on a whirlwind of drama, heartache, suspense, and mystery. The longest novel in the series at 496 pages, it still has doesn’t feel long or drawn-out save for the times Dresden reminisces about years past. After culminating events lead to an exciting conclusion, shocking surprises are revealed. I was blown away by this latest fantastic and gripping story. Butcher never disappoints. Just because Dresden doesn’t have a body doesn’t mean the story has ended. Don’t miss this Ghost Story and this incredible series.
