Half a Book - May want to wait a few months
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2020
Harry's back! After too many years without a novel, Jim Butcher's latest picks up shortly after the last one finished. It is fast-paced and mostly a fun read. Unfortunately, it is only half of a book and ends on a cliff-hanger. That explains why the next book will be out this fall, I suspect Jim wrote one very long book and the publisher split it into two. If so, I wish the publisher had the courage to release both books at once. I'm fairly confident his readers would have bought both books at once, and then we would have had a satisfactory reading experience - assuming Butcher draws this story to an end with the sequel.
If you haven't bought this book yet, consider waiting for the sequel to come out first. You've waited years for this story, why not wait a few months more and read the entire story at once?
