Ghost Story

Ghost Story (The Dresden Files,  #13)Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WARNING: Spoilers for Changes, the previous books, within. Though they are on the book cover so it might not be necessary.

Jim Butcher knocks it out of the park again with the latest in his Dresden Files series. Ghost Story picks up where Changes (and by extent Side Jobs) left off with wizard Harry Dresden dead but not out of the picture, as his ghost has returned to earth. What's he doing there? He figures it's to help out a few of his friends and maybe help stop Chicago from going to hell without him.

It's a fun tale, even if the main character is dead, and we adapt to his new situation as he does. It's interesting to see Dresden, who is a rather gung-ho character, have to stop and think this time around instead of brute forcing his way through everything. After tearing through the previous novels last summer, I've been waiting for this novel for awhile and it doesn't disappoint, hitting all the notes that are expected in a Dresden novel, answering some questions and setting up others for future novels. And after the way this one ends, I can't wait for the next one either.

Check it out.
