I finished Grave Peril -- can't believe how much happens in this one! It really does set up complications and characters that will recur throughout the series (so far, anyway! ). But that seems to be the theme of my rereading: So much happens in each book -- vivid scenes and plots that could carry a whole novel (I exaggerate, perhaps ) back to back to back -- all distinctive (characters too), and with very little let-up. Whew!

Have to take a break. Going into a very different world for a bit (Georgette Heyer's Regency England ). After that I'll pick up Summer Knight and see just where the consequences of Harry's many actions lead.

Such fun!!

Cool The other wizard named Harry

Well I just finished my current re-read of the 7 Harry Potter books. I really enjoyed them all (again) and am probably going to begin a re-read of the 3 James Potter novels (by G. Norman Lippert) while I'm in this Potterverse mindset.

Blood Rites (Book #6)

I am finally reading again!

I started over and have just finished chapter 18. It looks like the monkey poo is about to hit the proverbial fan.


Oh! ...

Please let the answer be yes!

Cool Dresden Files Wiki

Quote:
From: Dresden Files Wiki

Big Apocalyptic Trilogy

The Big Apocalyptic Trilogy is the name given for the intended last books of the The Dresden Files series.
Description Edit

According to Jim Butcher he intends to capstone the Dresden Files with a "Big Apocalyptic Trilogy" because "who doesn't like Apocalyptic Trilogies?"

He originally intended for the Dresden Files to contain 20 Case Files and then finish off with the Trilogy but has stated in several signing sessions that the events that take place in Changes were intended to happen at the book 10 midpoint, so the casefiles may run as high as 22-24 books.

The titles for the trilogy are: Hell’s Bells, Stars and Stones, and Empty Night.

References:

2010 Huston Signing
2009 Chicago Signing
Even though the references were a bit old there was some information included in the above quote that I'd not seen before.

I finished Blood Rites a few hours ago.

The ending made me both happy and apprehensive. I have a sinking feeling that book 7 is not going to be pretty...

The "scar", sigil, demon, staff, etc. Poor, poor Harry.

Cool Stuff to read while waiting for Cold Days' release!

Quote:
Quoted from the first paragraph of A Perfect Blood:

The woman across from me barely sniffed when I slammed the pen down on the counter. She didn’t care that I was furious, that I’d been standing in this stupid line for over an hour, that I couldn’t get my license renewed or my car registered in my name. I was tired of doing everything through Jenks or Ivy, but DEMON wasn’t a species option on the form. Friday morning at the DMV office. God! What had I been thinking?
Book 10 of The Hollows series (the continuing saga of Rachel Morgan) by Kim Harrison was released yesterday.

About to start Summer Knight. That's my idea of what to read while I wait for Cold Days' release. If I go slowly enough I'll finish my reread just in time.

Love the titles for the proposed Apocalyptic Trilogy -- thanks for that, Alan!

Nyssa, your spoiler reminded me of what I have to look forward to -- one of my favorite parts!!

Cool Awake

Last week I tipped you Dresden fans off about the TV series on ABC called 'The River' because I figured that fans of Harry Dresden might be interested in it because Paul Blackthorne is part of the ensemble cast. Well stretching that idea a little farther, NBC is previewing a new series called 'Awake'. The pilot episode can be seen in it's entirety and commercial free at the provided link. It's produced by and starring Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy). So there's a Potterverse link in this tip!

Have you started it? I found the detailing of body language a little tedious in the first few chapters, but it's picked up since then.

No, just read the first page, then I went back to James Potter to finish up my Potter re-read. After that I'll be reading A Perfect Blood.

I downloaded the James Potter books. Reading the prologue of book 1 gave me a good feeling about the series -- more fun ahead! Thank you for mentioning that you like them, Alan (and others! ).

Lippert has written 3 short stories, a novella and a novel that are, in one way or another, linked to the 3 James Potter novels and the Potterverse.

Sounds a lot like how David Weber does. Stuff like how far and how many times a character wiggles his swivel chair and descriptions of hand gestures.
