“The pacing is perfection, the humor doesn’t feel out of place or come across as corny and despite all that’s happening in the book, Harry is still the main focus of each book. ”
~ Under the Covers

GRAVE PERIL is book three in the Dresden Files and well, these books just seem to be getting better. After trying out the audio with the last book, I thought I’d return to just reading and I find that I like just reading them better for me. It allows me to put my own spin on things but I do know that a lot of people really love the audiobooks as well. I guess it’s just personal preference.

This book doesn’t waste time getting into the action. A lot of mythology is thrown into this book and it’s stuff that I don’t normally see a lot of even in Urban Fantasy. The things Jim Butcher comes up with are truly one of a kind and I think that’s really why this series is so good. His imagination can’t be beat.

But another reason why I love this series is because of the writing. There’s no other way to say it- it’s just good! The pacing is perfection, the humor doesn’t feel out of place or come across as corny and despite all that’s happening in the book, Harry is still the main focus of each book. This balance is what makes a good book spectacular and I think Butcher has really nailed it with this series. I’m so glad I’m finally getting to read them all.

Darynda

I can’t believe I’ve only read the first one. I also LOVED the TV show, so I keep meaning to get back to these. Thanks for the review!

Mary

This sounds really good and I love that they get better. So many series kinda stay the same or even get worse – i.e repeat to many things. I have to give this series a try!

Elizabeth

This is one of my favorite series!

I have had these on my tbr for a long time. I need to get to them. I’ll definitely research to see if I will start out with them on audio or ebook.

The audio has a good narrator.
