The Dresden files are some of the best "real" fantasy being written. I have enjoyed each of the novels and short stories.

pretty much the best series in the world
but needs to include more about the young spirit and bring back the trademark: burning buildings

Didn't grab me like the others. There were moments of excitement and interest, but not sustaining. New character introduced. Will be interesting to see where that takes the series.

I love the series but wasn't blown away by Skin Game. It has all of the types of elements which this series is known for but didn't weave in some of the elements that had me really excited to see how they would progress.

Perhaps that is just me wanting to much at once, I would definitely still recommend it and will continue reading the series, just liked some of the other novels a bit better than this one.

Wow, Jim Butcher delivers over and over again! The Dresden Files has to be one of the best series in fantasy ever. The way Butcher weaves all fantasy, mythological, and religious characters in one story arc is amazing! This book does not disappoint. Like all of the other Dresden books I seriously laugh out loud at minimum of 3 times (and only one of the books was that low). This book brought that same humor and even made me teary eyed in a few spots. Great Great Book!

Side note: It was great to read Patrick Rothfuss's (The Name of the Wind, Wise Man's Fear) review of this book as well on goodreads. It was very exciting to see another author I love have such a deep appreciation for the Dresden Files.

Great! 2 copies in our library, and the very first person is already 2 weeks overdue. Buddy, if you can't read a new book in 2 weeks, don't be first in line when you know other people are waiting for it!

Can't wait to read this one! Just re-read the series so I'll be ready for Skin Game. I love these books, love Harry Dresden!

There's more than one copy. And this is an awesome book. They just keep getting better and better.

I'm with Alexa65; only one copy? Guess the system doesn't track book usage/demand too closely.
