Peace Talks by Jim Butcher

Peace Talks (The Dresden Files, #16)Peace Talks by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's been a while since I've read a new Dresden Files novels from Jim but I did just do the whole series via audio book in preparation for Peace Talks so I was more than prepared and expectations were high. The novel begins sometime after the events depicted in Skin Game as Harry continues to deal with his precarious position as the Winter Knight and Wizard of the White Council not to forget friend to the Carpenter family, father of Maggie and significant other to a seriously injured Karrin Murphy. The Fomor having ravaged the world since the fall of the Red Court but raise the hope for Peace and a major gathering is organised in Chicago under the Unseelie Accords but even then there are plans within plans and to complicate matters Thomas is under a potential death sentence after he transgressed the domain of the Svartalf and blood was spilt.
Ok that was a very non specific description but like me if you are a fan of Harry Dresden and his adventures you don't want spoilers even those on the official blurb so I jumped into Peace Talks head first and didn't come out again until it was done and naturally cursing Jim for leaving us hanging but the knowledge the next novel was due very soon was a relief. High adventure and complications abound for Harry in this novel, the ups and downs of his life continue to entertain along with his friends, allies and even enemies. Where the novel left off is terrifying but the world of magic and sorcery is so vast and proven itself to versatile we can expect great things to come.
