But only because Fool Moon was even more of a slog. I love the Dresden files, but this was a big step backwards after Changes and Ghost Story, still not bad but tortured in a series of contrivances instead of Butcher's usually more subtle writing, and the result is a perfectly inoffensive story that is perfectly uninvolving.

There's nothing to make me go 'christ that was awful' but also nothing to make me go 'christ that was amazing'. To demonstrate the point. SPOILER WARNING the plot ultimately boils down to conflicted mommy issues between two minor supporting characters and another character we've never met before.

Dresden files fans will still want to knew what happens so they don't miss important build-up for the next book. But it's probably a good thing that James Masters remains as terrific a reader as ever, listen to him read this book while you're at the gym and knew that if you miss anything while you're concentration in elsewhere it will hardly matter.
