“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.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

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!

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!
