Death Masks (The Dresden Files #5) by Jim Butcher
My rating: ✰✰✰
Library Book, E-book, Finished: 5/20/2012
This book starts with Harry on a talk show, with a Vampire and a priest. The Vampire challenges him to a duel and the priest hires him to find a stolen relic. Then his old girlfriend who’s almost a vampire shows up, and some really powerful ugly things are trying to kill him and get the stolen relic.
There are a lot of story-lines going through this book, the threat from the vampires, a new threat, and old friend Michael and the other knights make an appearance.
While I am not in love with these books, I have to admire that Butcher is able to keep all the characters and stories going and straight. People don’t act out of character, and things make sense (as much as fantasy can make sense).
My only complaint is I am getting a little tired of the vampires. I wasn’t expecting so many vampires. But the ending of this book seems to have reduced their numbers significantly.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
