Sorry once again for my tardiness. I was preparing for the zombie apocalypse (no, seriously, I was). I’ll tell you all about that later, but first things first. To make it up to you, I’ve finished Dead Beat, so we … Continue reading
It’s Halloween in Chicago. Our favorite wizard is running out of not only time but also options. If he can’t defeat the baddies before midnight, the entire world is doomed. Sounds like a normal day for Harry Dresden.
We all knew that this was coming. Whether it be asking advice from Bob or gleaning vague knowledge from faeries, Harry always consults some magical being when a case is this tough to crack. Let’s just hope it doesn’t cause … Continue reading
Already, Dead Beat has us glued to the edge of our seats. New threats lurk in the dark hours before Halloween’s approach, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon.
Through the dark streets of autumn Chicago we travel. As Halloween approaches, Harry is confronted with even more mysteries and obstacles. And the worst part is he doesn’t have the time!
Jim Butcher is at it again. Throughout “The Dresden Files” series, we’ve seen monsters, vampires, demons, dastardly villains, and impossible escapes. We’ve felt joy, fear, heartbreak, and anger right along with our favorite wizard. And we’re about to jump on … Continue reading
Well, what do you know. We’ve come to the end of the line. I know, it’s been fun. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. But all good things must come to an end. Let’s dive in, shall we? … Continue reading

Thankfully there were no monsters that needed squishing last night, and I’m all recovered from the vampire hunt. Finally, we can get back on schedule!
Sorry I was a day late on getting you the next five chapters. I didn’t want you to go too long without continuing on from last time, but things come up. As it turns out, I had to hunt vampires all … Continue reading
