I am a fan of Butcher and love his Harry Dresden series. This is got a slight flavor of Dresden in the humor but otherwise is full fledged fantasy and excellent at that. The plot is a rebellion and those who oppose it.
The characters are once again the best part of Butcher’s tales. Don’t get me wrong, his plots are excellent and his story telling sublime but his characterizations are terrific.
I like the way he takes Tavi and grows his character throughout the book. His villains are more believable due to their pragmatic nature. He gives back story on his villains so they are far more than just the embodiment of evil that seems to be prevalent in most fantasies.
I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
I highly recommend the book.
