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! ( )

I still like Death Masks better, but Blood Rites is still quite good. We're back to big magical rituals (a five book cycle?) but also a bit of goodly hint of vampiric mayhem (the Black and White Courts this time around).

Of course, since it's the White Court, the entire plot this time has to revolve around a ritual curse targetting an adult film director. All righty then.

As I'd mentioned before, the best part of Death Masks was the characters. This time around, it had to be have been just random scenes.

Awesome scenes:

A fight with monkey demons whose primary weapon is... flaming monkey poo. Dresden has a quite literal fight with a literal monkey on his back.

An entropy curse that kills via whatever bizarre means it can access. Including... death via frozen turkey.

A big basement showdown with Mavra (she's back!)... And that wasn't even the climax of the book.

A big fight in a cave system while a bad ass demon summoning is going on.

That's not to say that there weren't a few neat character moments. We learn a lot more about Thomas, Murphy, and Kincaid. Oh, and Dresden has a magic dog now.

One interesting thing that we really haven't seen that much of prior to this is lasting consequences, other than the war with the Red Court. Things are changing in the Dresdenverse. The big example: Dresden's hand. Smaller examples that I'm sure will mean more later: Dresden learns a lot more about his mother/family and about some of the more troublesome parts of the White Council (the Blackstaff). Slightly terrifying example: He Who Walks Behind.

My other favorite part of the Dresden Files in general and this book in particular:

"I put the ick in magic."

"I the hell am Harry."

"Proof is something you use with rational people. Right now you aren't."

Love it. ( )

Harry rescues a litter of puppies for a Far Eastern monk, who flies back. Much to his surprise one has taken refuge in his Blue Bug, so Harry becomes the involuntary owner of a notch-eared puppy, with a big heart. Thomas asks Harry to see who is trying to kill a porn movie director, who has not one or two, but three ex-wives, some of which were from prior movies. Women on the set keep dying, and Harry recruits Murphy and retains an assassin to help him eliminate the threat. As readers are drawn into the story, we learn much about Thomas and his White Court vampire family providing new depths for existing characters in the series. Like the predecessor books, gore galore, and several close calls with death for Harry, Murphy, and Thomas as they fight one of the their toughest foes ever. ( )

I’ve really been enjoying The Dresden Files series so far. Blood Rites opens with a bang and just kept going. The war between vampires and wizards is still going strong, but that doesn’t stop Harry. He’s got to pay the bills and so he finds himself in another odd situation.

I will say I felt a little lost at the being and was trying to remember who Thomas was, but I think this had to do with how much time between the books before I read. I just forgot some things is all, but I soon remember and was all in.

Blood Rites put’s a lot of the characters into perspective; Murphy goes outside the cop role and tries on the vigilante aspect and Thomas - HOLLY COW I didn’t see that one coming.

As for Harry he’s feeling a little sad in this one, but he gets a few surprise, well we all do. I didn’t expect them and I loved it.

Blood Rites was an action-packed mystery adventure. It’s a turning point for the series and I just have to say, PUPPIES, adorable. Another stunning installment.

Rated: 4 Stars

"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.
