Review: Blood Rites, Jim Butcher

Blood Rites
Blood Rites by Jim Butcher

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

“The building was on fire, and it wasn’t my fault.”
Now that’s an opening line.

Number six of the Dresden Files and I’m still as excited to read it as the first. Some major revelations here. No spoilers, just, wow.

This tale was a tad lighter than previous stories. It seems Harry has gotten himself contracted by a porn filmmaker. Completely by accident, but Murphy’s not convinced. Harry’s due for a bit of a breather, though. So the lighter mood is welcome, though as the story progresses, things do become more serious and potentially deadly for Harry. Naturally.

We learn more about Murphy in this story, which I enjoyed. I like seeing how her friendship with Harry is developing. I’m glad to see Thomas taking a greater role in this book, too. He’s great fun as a character.

Not as all-encompassing a doomsday scenario as previous stories, but plenty of danger, trouble, and enemies around Harry. We learn some good stuff. And the larger story continues to unfold. And Harry is as lovable as ever.
