Jim Butcher continues to justify my purchases of his books. The Dresden Files have been strong through the first five books I’ve read. This is the third book in the Cursors Fury, and I enjoyed it as much as the first.
Butcher balances strong characters, political intrigues, dangerous foes, and an interesting magic without so much as breaking a sweat. The book is an easy read with great action and suspense, a developing love interest, and a main character whose weakness continues to turn into a strength. In this volume, we also learn a couple of very surprising facts that will no doubt come into play in the next volumes. I can’t wait to get the next book in the series and keep going.
Here’s hoping that this series by Butcher doesn’t go the way of the Wheel of Time or that Goodkind series (if you don’t know, that means 5 great books, and 6 more extremely mediocre or even brutal tomes)
Rating: 4 out of 5 (What’s This?)
