Editorial Reviews

Review

“Just when you think he can’t take it up a notch, Butcher proves once more that he is freaking amazing. Wicked cool.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs

"Urban fantasy at its best, combining spectacular magic and deeply explored character."—
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The arc begun in 
Peace Talks comes to a deadly, destructive finish in the 17th 'Dresden Files' book—and nothing will be the same again.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for Jim Butcher and The Dresden Files
“Harry Dresden is a wholly original character in a wholly original world. Every book in the series is a great adventure.”—#1
New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris

“I've been reading the Dresden Files for more than a decade, and somehow, every book gets better. It's my favorite kind of story: delightful, deep, complicated, rare, and wonderful.”—#1
New York Times bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss

“Jim Butcher has long proven he can juggle multiple threads of political intrigue, personal drama, and threat with a masterful use of action and tension. . . . Harry’s hard-earned grit keeps his head above the magical waters and me on the edge of my seat.”—#1
New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison

“Think
Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe.”—Entertainment Weekly

“One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves.”—
Cinescape
 
“Takes the best elements of urban fantasy, mixes it with some good old-fashioned noir mystery, tosses in a dash of romance and a lot of high-octane action, shakes, stirs, and serves.”—SF Site

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jim Butcher read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old--

the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight,

he'd added the rest of the Narnia books, the Prydain Chronicles, every

book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels and

the Lord of the Rings to his count.

So he was pretty much doomed from the start.

Love of fantasy, his personal gateway drug, drew him toward a fairly

eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding (including trick riding,

stunt riding, drill riding, and competitive stunt racing), archery,

martial arts, costuming, music and theater. He played a lot of role-

playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and

eventually got into live-action roleplay where players beat each other

up with boffer weapons.

So, really, he can fly his nerd flag with pretty much anyone, and

frequently does.

He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and

horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until,

just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every

piece of her advice; fill out outlines and worksheets, and design

stories and characters just the way she'd been telling him to do for

about three years. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it

produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways.

The result was the Dresden Files, which sure showed *her*.

She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on

writing.

Jim has performed in dramas, musicals, and vocal groups in front of

live audiences of thousands and on TV. He has performed exhibition

riding in multiple arenas, and fallen from running horses a truly

ridiculous number of times. He was once cursed by an Amazon witch

doctor in rural Brazil, has apparently begun writing about himself in

the third person, and is hardly ever sick at sea.

He also writes books occasionally.

Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera.

He's plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one. He lives in

Missouri with his wife, romantic suspense and paranormal romance writer

Shannon K. Butcher (who is really pretty and way out of his league),

his son, and a ferocious guard dog.
