Comments for Grave Peril

Grave Peril: 06/09/14

cover artGrave Peril by Jim Butcher is the third of the Dresden Files books and the last one I plan to read as an audio. My decision to switch to print has nothing to do with James Marster's performance; I love how he reads the books. Rather, it's more an adjustment in how I'm reading and the fact that I already own the books in paperback and hardback as my husband collected them while he was reading through the series.

Dresden is at a hospital, trying to stop a ghost from taking babies to the Never Never. During what should be a routine, simple even, case, things to horribly wrong. Something is driving the spirits mad.

In trying to understand what's driving the spirit world mad and raising the number of hauntings in Chicago to dangerous levels, Dresden decides to get help from some unlikely sources. He also has to make some trips to the Never Never.

Grave Peril is a series of cliffhangers for Dresden. If things can go bad for him, they do. And whatever happens is worse than even he expects. On the audio, I'm sure I missed some pivotal scenes. If I had been reading in print, I'm sure I would have gone back to re-read scenes.

Four stars
