Book 17: Grave Peril

I'll admit it.  I have a soft spot for the softball exploits of Harry Dresden.  Well, I did before Grave Peril.  The first two volumes of his adventures are fun, fairly mindless, and easy to consume.  But Grave Peril takes a decidedly dark and very violent turn.  It takes awhile to get really rolling and at nearly 400 pages is a bit long for this type of book for me, but Harry really gets into it here.  I'm still not sure how much I enjoyed it, but it's easy to see that Jim Butcher wanted a different direction.  I'll continue with the series, but I'm hopeful that he brings back some of the more fun elements in future novels.
