I am so glad I finally got to read "Blood Rites." I can't believe I hadn't read it before. "Blood Rites" is a foundational book, just like the book before it, "Death Masks." It is pivotal because Dresden's life changes after this. I didn't find the story as engaging as the others, but its importance is in the details and the story's outcome. ( )

This one gets four stars only because the plot twist really got to me, but this book's case was meh at best. ( )

So this took me a ridiculously long time to finish, I was listening on Audiobook and for a while, I was making really good headway then all of a sudden I just... wasn't. I finally finished it though so yay! Time to move onto the next book.

The reason it took me so long to finish was not that the book was bad, quite the contrary my friends it was because the book was so good. When I listen to audiobooks my mind can sometimes wander, I don't have anything physically to hold my attention so I don't listen as well as I like so I made sure to only listen to this when I was sure I would not get distracted.

So let's talk about the actual book now. I feel like with this book and the last book Butcher has finally found his groove. The characters, which are well established, can shine bright and add to the overall story. We get a lot in this book, in terms of story and character development. We get more of Murphy, Ebenezer, Thomas, and even a little bit of Kincaid. The book starts out with Dresden dodging monkey poo from giant demon apes while rescuing some puppies for a monk. Once that is done Thomas asked him for a favor to help a friend of his (who is currently filming a porno, come on Butcher!) with an entropy curse. This job and the fact that there are vampires currently wanting to kill him brings a whole mess of trouble, some that will definitely follow him into the next books.

Considering Dresden spent some time on the set of a porno, he wasn't as perverted as he could have been and for that I am grateful. Dresden does still suffer from, "chivalry" but it also wasn't as bad as the previous books. We learn a lot about Dresden's family in this one, and there were quite a few surprises, although I guessed who the bad guys were from the state. Either Way, this was great and I can't wait to enjoy the next one. ( )

Nice read. Series gets better with each book ( )

It's been the better part of a year since I'd read the previous book. When I'm not reading one of these books I always kinda dread picking up the next one; I think that I have misgivings about the pace of the books being too slow to get to the meat of the action. Maybe I'm just mis-remembering that or else this book didn't waste any time getting up and moving. In any event, this one seemed to be hitting on all cylinders as we have multiple plot threads to deal with in addition to some life-shaking news that Harry gets. Satisfying ending and I'm ready for the next one already! ( )

"What about her death curse?"
I blinked.
"You'd thought of that, right?" he asked.
"What death curse?" I stammered.
"Use your head, boy," Ebenezar said. "If she's got a wizard's power, she might well be able to level a death curse at you when she goes down."
"Oh, come on," I muttered. "That's no fair. She's already dead."
She flipped to a second page and took a pen from behind one hair-bun. "Oh, what would you like on your vegetarian pizza?"
"Dead pigs and cows," I said.
She glanced up at me and wrinkled her nose.
"They're vegetarians," I said defensively.
"But what do you want on yours? I mean, I'm supposed to make everyone happy here."
"Kill me some animals, then," I said. "It's a protein thing."
"Oh, you should have said," Inari replied, smiling at me. We stopped in front of a door and she scribbled on her clipboard. "Some extra cheese, maybe some beans and corn. Or wait. Tofu. Protein. I'll fix you up."
Bean-curd pizza, good grief. I should raise my rates.
"Hey, Harry. You know what?"
"No. What?"
"I'm thinking maybe we should get indoors."
I picked up the puppy and scanned the darkness but saw nothing. "Discretion is the better part of not getting exsanguinated," I said. "Let's go."
Murphy had genuine worry on her face and actual tears in her eyes and I started feeling out of my depth. Maybe because it was a family thing. It seemed like something completely alien and I didn't get it. Murphy was worried about being close to her mom. Murphy should just go talk to her mom, right? Bite the bullet and clear the air. With anyone else she'd have handle the problem exactly that way. But I've noticed that people got the most irrational whenever family was around while simultaneously losing their ability to distinguish reason from insanity. I call it familial dementia.
