I was informed by many a reader that this series found its legs in book 3, and there was even an intro from Jim Butcher to that effect. It's true! I loved this one to pieces! Many of the secondary characters came out of the woodwork in a big way, and a few new ones were added to the cast as well. I enjoyed the humour a lot more this time around, the multiple plot threads kept me engaged, and the main story arc is just getting started. Harry really defined himself as a protagonist in this installment by making some tough calls, demonstrating that he can throw down in a pinch, and his relationship with Susan takes several unexpected turns. James Marster's narration has been steadily improving with each novel, and I look forward to tagging along with him, Butcher & Dresden for SUMMER KNIGHT.
