Sorry, Book 9 of the Dresden Files
Just hit the shelves earlier this week. I'm about halfway through, and so far it's pretty great. It makes me sad all over again that the TV series is so far from the books... I understand that it's rare to get a good adaptation from novel to screen, but reading this latest Dresden just shows how weak the TV series is in comparison. I still can't fathom why they completely changed several important characters (Bob for a start, Murphy for another). Never mind why they aged him ten years and took away his hairline. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the show enough to keep watching it, but they might as well be two completely different entities entirely.
In the latest volume, Harry's chasing a murderer who's killing low-level practitioners of magic, and framing him and his half-brother Thomas for the crimes (and given that Harry's past sins mean that he's never more than a breath away from being taken out by the "good guys" as much as the bad, that's a particularly bad thing). The ongoing subplot concerning the war between the vampire courts and wizards continues, and Harry as a character is really developing nicely... Butcher isn't afraid to allow his characters to grow and change according to the events that occur, and that makes for rich content.
I'm a little pissed to realise that the "As Seen on Sci-Fi" blurb on cover isn't just a sticker, but rather printed over the artwork... if all you've seen of Harry Dresden so far is the TV series, you're not getting even a glimpse of the gold.
