Blood Rites (The Dresden Files #6) by Jim Butcher
My rating: ✰✰✰
Library Book, E-book, Finished: 5/20/2012

If you haven’t read the previous books this review may contain spoilers.

This the last Harry Dresden book I am reading. For a while, while I enjoyed them I am not sure I want a steady diet of them.

This book is full of entropy curses, sorcery, demons, vampires, old enemies, new enemies, old friends, wizards, mercenaries and puppies. Yes I said puppies.

Harry gets a job to protect a film crew from an “Evil Eye”, mixed in with the film crew are the White Vampires, which brings in his old friend (?) Thomas. Then Marva and the Black Vampires make an appearance leading Harry to move against them.

Once again multiples beings are trying to kill Harry. He gets help from his friends, hires some help and learns more about his past along the way. Harry maintains his mostly chauvinistic ways, however, he never puts women down, just feels they need protecting. Except for Murphy, and the women working evil spells, and the Vampire queen. I think that’s all.

There is a lot of supernatural action in this, fight scenes, and at the end a resolution, but also more questions, to keep the Dresden Files going. While these books are more of the same, I do agree with many that Butcher gets better as he goes along.

About Belleza

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.
