As usual, this entry into the Dresden Files hits the ground running, with Harry trying to figure out what his vampire brother Thomas is hiding from him, while also working to figure out who is killing female magic practitioners, and why. But the action quickly ramps up as he is engaged in several supernatural skirmishes, before the whole thing escalates into full-blown paranormal mayhem. As the usual magical combat is anticipated, we also learn more about the complicated political backstory, with vampires seeking to destroy the White Council of wizards, wreaking havoc on training camps and practitioners alike, but also, apparently, warring amongst themselves, struggling to gain power and dominance over their own kind. This may prove to be their undoing, as Harry charges in -- though Harry himself must make some pretty whopping compromises to ensure the safety of those he cares for. The eternal conundrum of the powerful wizard who walks among us. ( )

White Night is the ninth book in The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. In this week's episode... There's a supernatural serial killer loose in Chicago that is targeting weaker members of the city, ones who don't have enough power to become full-fledged wizards. Harry's investigation turns up evidence pointing to the one suspect he cannot believe is guilty: his half-brother Thomas. Harry teams up with his old flame Elaine to solve the crimes and clear his brother's name.

I'm going to sum this up with a quote:

"Get your head in the game Harry...Defeat the whole damn White Court now. Worry about taking on Hell later."


White Night is another solid entry into the series. I really should not take so long between reading books. I forgot how these books hit that one spot and then it's off to the races. Around chapter 10 the pace on this one picks up and doesn't let go. It's obvious that Thomas is being set up but it's quite a mystery for Harry and team to solve that takes some interesting turns. The plot on this moves several story threads that have been building throughout the series along nicely.

I'm highly impressed with how complex and nuanced the characters are becoming. Dear lord Molly needs to grow up. I definitely agree with Harry in needing to scare her straight before she gets them both killed. Murphy noticing Harry's "unexplained" anger issues that are the result of the gordian knot that is Lasciel is quite insightful.

And that ending! I am very curious to see how what Lash did plays out. I'm not entirely sure she's gone and it's great Harry is no longer tied to Lasciel. I'm also hoping that these events have bought Lara and the White Court's alliance for a little while and gives the White Council some breathing room in the war. The solution for Thomas's unique problem is absolutely perfect! ( )

Alguien tiene en el punto de mira a los practicantes de magia de Chicago, los miembros de la subclase sobrenatural que carecen del suficiente poder para convertirse en magos plenos. Varios han desaparecido. Otros parecen haberse suicidado. En el último caso, el culpable ha dejado una tarjeta de visita en el escenario del crimen, un mensaje para el mago detective Harry Dresden. Este se lanza a buscar al asesino, pero la investigación lo lleva hasta un culpable que no cree posible: Thomas, su propio hermano. Para limpiar su nombre, Dresden se implica en una disputa de poderes sobrenaturales que lo supera, se halla en una situación de inferioridad y peligrosamente susceptible a la tentación.

I've read this many times and pick up new things with each read. I enjoy the quick wit and fast pace. White Knight is one of my favorites. Jim Butcher builds a fight scene like a Mozart composes an opera. There is an opening theme, teases, flirts, complete chaos, and a resounding resolution. He keeps me coming back for more. ( )

. . . age is always advancing and I'm fairly sure it's up to no good.
Bigots see something they expect and then they stop thinking about what is in front of them . . . It's probably how they got to be bigots in the first place.
Everyone is down on pain, because they forget something important about it: Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it.
Life's easier when you can write off others as monsters, as demons, as horrible threats that must be hated and feared. The thing is, you can't do that without becoming them, just a little.
