Wow this countdown seems to be going faster than the last one. I think I'm going to read the first Alex Verus novel and then start my Dresden re-read with Side Jobs. I'm afraid I might read them either too fast or too slow. If I go too fast I'll try and stick a couple more Alex Verus books in there if I really like the first one.

Poor Frost. I'm glad he came out of it pretty much ok. I live out in the middle of nowhere and have seen a few coyotes around. I would freak if one grabbed my dog. Although my dog runs really damn fast and she's a big chicken so could most likely outrun the coyote. She's a pitbull mix...big cowardly pitbull mix. No Mouse in her at all.

She has a strong sense of self-preservation and is smart enough to run from a fight she knows she cannot win.

Unlike our favourite wizard.

In the Yukon the coyotes tag team the dog. One lets the dog chase it and the other lurks around until the first gets tired or the dog actually gets close to the first. I always root for the dog even if it is bigger than both coyotes combined, but coyotes don't have an easy life either. I doubt the world has much room for coyotes/bobcats/wolves/lynx etc. , and I don't like that either.

But definitely glad the wee doggie lived to be a hero.

Do you live in the Yukon? I've driven through part of it several times on the way to or from Alaska.

Thanks again, for the tip on Harry Potter and the Sun Source.

By the way, if you're not familiar with the other characters that are blended into this story, take a peek at this (it's a Kindle freebie), Created, The Destroyer (The Destroyer #1) by Richard Ben Sapir, Warren Murphy.

Right now I live 5 months a year in the Yukon.

I read the Sun Source book because of the Destroyer thing. Not sure why I like them but I do. Some of them can be very funny.

Awesome news!! Also, for those who may not know, "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins" is a movie loosely based on "The Destroyer" series if you've never seen it.

Cool Kevin Hearne deal...

Since in the past here on The Dresden Files thread there have been recommendations for and discussions about this series I thought that reporting this deal at Amazon here on this thread would be appropriate.

Yeah, I saw it it back when it was released and subsequently bombed at the box office. Loved the cool scenes on the outside of the Statue of Liberty.

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985)

The Dresden Files

I'm guessing the majority here (other than The Dresden Files of course) read The Iron Druid Chronicles and the Alex Verus series? Which of the two urban fantasy series do you guys recommend?

That's correct, I really disliked Atticus. Anyway, so i obviously wouldn't personally recommend it, though I would tell someone that it's liked by a lot of other folks who read in the Urban Fantasy genre. I do however like the Alex Verus series a lot.
