    1. Hands down the most fun book I've read these past two years. White Night is also the best Dresden Files book so far. It restored my wobbling faith in the series. Jim Butcher has my respect. He can retain control over what makes Dresden special, yet dish out an entertaining, fast paced book that's unique in the series. Everything here was fun to read. Even the times where vampires' unearthly beauty was being described made me happy. I usually get bored by this lyrical waxing. But here it seemed s [...]


    2. Classic Dresden files book, so it was good. But this read just like about three or four of his other books**Set in Chicago.n**White Court vamps are evil and the war is ongoingill**Bob the pervy skull gets a complete intro and helps out with witty candor**Thomas is hungry and Harry is suspicious of him**Harry STILL doesn't get laidI'm ready for Butcher to move on to a new subject, a new setting, and to settle the score with all of the above. How many times does Bob need an introduction? If someon [...]


    3. The ninth Harry Dresden novel is the series riches and most densely plotted to date--and the first in the series I can't recommend to someone coming to the series cold. Not that this is a bad thing. It's a great thing for readers of the Dresden Files. While Jim Butcher does deliver payoffs and resolutions in his previous eight books, here in "White Night" he steps that up a notch, bringing back old friends and enemies to Harry Dresden's world all while building on several key plotlines from the [...]


    4. THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE AT THE LIBRARY IT WAS DUE YESTERDAY BUT MAYBE IF I GET THERE BEFORE THEY OPEN AND THEY FIND IT IN THE "RETURN" BIN THEY'LL BE ALL "OH, SHE TOTALLY RETURNED THIS LAST NIGHT AND THAT COUNTS WE WON'T CHARGE HER ANYTHING" WHICH STILL MAKES ME A BAD PERSON BECAUSE SOMEBODY HAD IT ON HOLD THAT'S WHY I COULDN'T RENEW IT AND HAD TO SPEND ALL DAY YESTERDAY READING SO I COULD BRING IT BACK TODAY(pant pant pant)So. Um. Okay. This is a good book. Good wizard-is-a-private-detective-in-mo [...]


    5. *3.5 stars*LOVE this series and the narrator, James Marsters, can do no wrong, but this book was freakin' confusing as hell! Time jumps, lots of random things happening it was just more chaotic than I would have liked. Still one of my favorite series of all time and I'm still jumping right into the next book!


    6. Another pretty good Dresden book. But first thing I want to mention is the amazing narrator, James Marsters. It's the first time I listened to Dresden audiobook, and I loved it. James Marsters does an awesome job and he sounds pretty much like I imagined Harry would sound. I think I am definitely going to buy an audiobook when the next Dresden book comes out. If you read any of my reviews of Dresden Files, you know I am a huge fan. I think I even get a little bit overenthusiastic in some of my r [...]


    7. Executive Summary: This is one of three books from the Dresden Files series I've given 5 stars to, and if you follow my reviews, you know that's something I try not to do lightly. I really enjoy it start to finish.Audio book: I could just copy paste this section from book to book. James Marsters is great. If you've been reading my previous reviews or listening to this series yourself you know that. Highlights in this book include him actually yelling during one scene and this crazy french accent [...]


    8. Love this series! it's so addictive; as soon as I finish one book I want to read the next. Jim Butcher is slowly building up a massive plot, revealing only a few small teasers each book, developing the threads and strings that will all eventually be pulled together in a massive showdown. Little hints at Harry's background are also building up slowly, working towards a big reveal. In this episode, Sgt Murphy calls Harry in for his unofficial opinion on a series of deaths made to look like suicide [...]


    9. Evil’s afoot.Well, suree it refuses to learn the metric system. Otherwise it’d be up to a meter by now.I’m not usually one to push so quickly through a series, but I’m thoroughly enjoying myself and can’t seem to pull myself away. With every installment Harry is becoming stronger and more experienced, while implementing interesting tools and forming unlikely alliances to aid him. Meaning, the action only gets better. Next to Sue the magical mayhem and fight sequences in this book were [...]


    10. Before starting the review of White Night, I would like to tell you how I met Harry. After devouring the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning in 2012, I wanted to read another amazing Urban Fantasy so I requested for some UF recommendations. And first time I met Harry there when I was recommended Dresden Files in response to my request. I read the blurb; saw the cover, length of the series, a male protagonist and instantly dismissed it. It was start of 2013 and had just started reading fantasy boo [...]


    11. 8/10These are getting harder to review as the series goes on. 9 books in now and I feel confident that the reviews I write will be pretty standard throughout the series. The majority will be 4 stars as the quality of writing is good, the characters well rounded with enough development throughout the series to keep it from being stale, the plot getting more complicated with each passing novel but still easily digestible. There will be some that fail to meet that 4 star mark and some which shoot o [...]


    12. Another action packed episode. Murphy asks Dresden to unofficially look into a series of staged suicides. Things go pear shaped from there.This felt a little “episodic” to me in that there’s not a lot we haven’t seen before. Ghouls and Vampires. Lots of them. There’s plenty of action though and Harry has beefed up a lot of his magical accessories for that bit of extra punch – a regional commander of the Wardens of the White Council needs a bit of extra juice after all – especially [...]



    13. Harry Dresden is back and just like every previous book in this series, its better than it's predecessors. I take my hat off to you Jim Butcher. It feels like we as readers have taken this journey with you as you started out in this career and you really have gone from strength to strength. This is also very evident in the evolution of the characters on your pages. They have become such complex and well liked beings that I doubt the author could off any one of them without a huge backlash from h [...]


    14. Another great book in a great series! I don’t have much to add here or to my other reviews on this series but if you haven’t read these yet, you really, really should. And stick with it because the first few are mediocre but they get SO much better.


    15. "What's up, boss?""Evil's afoot.""Well, sure," Bob said, "because it refuses to learn the metric system. Otherwise it'd be up to a meter by now."Things having been building up for a long time with Harry. He is still fighting the demon-in-a-coin influence, which seems to have changed his personality a bit, along with the pressures he is under from being a warden, apprenticing Molly (which means his death if she screws up), and worrying about Thomas who is definitely hiding something from him. At [...]


    16. A lot of people have called this the best of the series. I think I know why. This is what I call a 'Pay Off' book. Butcher has spent 8 books weaving small details of a larger plot together. Never have I felt unsatisfied by the small bits of information Dresden puts together, but it's nice to have a small pittance of the questions that have come up finally answered.That's not to say it's not awesome without it, but there's something infinitively satisfying about getting answers, even if they only [...]


    17. Just doing a short review this time.Basically a fun read, but not the best in the series. I did like having Molly around - the master/apprentice aspect didn't go overboard in this one, and was really fun. I thought Thomas was great in the one and I always love Murphy. I really hope that the (view spoiler)[ Lasciel storyline is done (hide spoiler)]


    18. 4.5 maybe. Just another great addition to the series. Loved the intricacies woven in from previous books - feels like they've all been leading up to this moment, and now we're really seeing where this story will be going from now on. I'm excited to see what else Jim Butcher throws at Harry Dresden.


    19. It's definitely getting harder to review these at book 9. This is the last book that came out before I started to become aware of the series. Not only did I start out behind, but the freaking guy can't stop putting out a million books a year so I fear I'll still never catch up. I'm still enjoying these, though I think I might have overdone it reading 3 in very close succession. This was tightly plotted and highly enjoyable as usual. I've definitely preferred these later volumes to the first coup [...]


    20. Harry Dresden is one of my favorite heroes. He makes mistakes and he is often confused. Through stubborn persistence he manages to reason his way out of trouble. He reminds me of Indiana Jones. This is the 9th book in the series. I'm reading these stories too fast. I just can't stop listening to them. Each book blends seamlessly into the next. The characters develop and change. They battle the forces of darkness and learn more about each other's pasts. These experiences shape and change the char [...]


    21. I'm having a hard time remembering what happened in this one. Basically, a bunch of women practitioners are being hunted down and killed and Harry must figure out what is really going on. Everything comes to a head with the White Court, Cowl, Madrigal Raith, and something called a Skavis. The thing that stood out the most in this book was the highly theatrical fight of Harry + Rameriz against Vittorio and Madrigal. That fight between the four of them really shows off what can be done with magic [...]


    22. The ongoing story of Harry Dresden does not get better in the ninth book. The consistencies in the mechanics and the competence of characters get very iffy here. But well, it's the world which revolves around Harry. (Is it a trend, like in that Rowling series, to have prima donna protagonists, around which all things move, be named "Harry"?)Harry will explain how magic makes sense in the Law Of Conservation Of Energy even it violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics.Harry will touch the good sid [...]


    23. This volume was high on magic, but low on detective work which wasn't the best trade-off; however the action and characters helped to re-balance the scales. Murphy was particularly awesome in this installment as was Harry's brother, Thomas. Molly got on my nerves a bit with her complete disregard for how her actions impacted others. She's learning though, as was evidenced by her growth towards the end. I really liked Ramirez too. When he called Dresden out on his sketchy behaviour, I expected th [...]


    24. First read 9-16 May, 2010.Re-read 12-23 October, 2013. More shadowy conspiracy! More kick-butt violence! Harry is as funny, crafty, brave, stubborn, chivalrous, and vulnerable as ever, and now he's even more powerful! Great use of recurring characters, especially Thomas, Ramirez, Murphy, Marcone, and Elaine. Elaine is awesome, and Ramirez is adorable; I want to see both of them in featured roles in upcoming books. Thomas' secret was quite the fun surprise. Interesting revelation on the Lasciel m [...]


    25. This series really does get better and better. I'm anxious to find out when will Harry get his happily ever afteror how about just a girlfriend. This is killing me!


    26. 4.5 Stars!Another awesome Harry Dresden tale! Oh, I so, so, soooo love this series, for so many, many, many reasons. I love it for its consistency to enthrall and entertain. I love it for the ever broadening world that Butcher keeps expanding like putting together a giant puzzle by starting from the innermost piece. I also love that Butcher's writing started out very good, with a clear strong voice, and continued to be clear and strong until about two books ago when the writing itself got tighte [...]


    27. Quick review:Cover: fitting Rating:R Thumbs Up:3.5Overall: it was okayCharacters: Well writtenPlot: A lot going on, maybe too muchPage Turner: Eh Series Cont.? Yes Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: DresdenSUMMARY It took me way too long to read this book. I like this series, but I found that too much was going on and the way it was written it was almost hard to follow at times. But alas, the funniest thing ever happened in this book. (view spoiler)[ When Dresden pretended to be his brother’s gay lo [...]


    28. One of my friends convinced me to try out the audio versions of this series, and I really enjoyed, especially the humour, which had me laughing out loud 5h00 in the mornings on my way to work - not an easy feat. The only problem with this title, was that I was a bit lost with some of the characters or events referred to, as I read the previous titles in the books quite a while ago. The other one was the amount and lenght of the fight scenes - too much, but much easier to deal with on audio. Will [...]


    29. I feel safe to give this book four stars! The sense of humor is endless and the book also has some killer fight scenes! What is not to love?
