Jim Butchers latest Dresden Files book is on sale today for $1.99. Note there are 16 books before this and you need to read the rest. This is not a stand alone book! However if you are on the fence about starting this series I highly recommend it!

A fun series, though this isn't the one to start with, obviously.

Recent books are going for 9.99 so this is a pretty good price for a fun series by a decent author.

You can probably read the rest for free via Libby or Hoopla if you get a library card.

I really enjoy this series. I've been listening to the audiobooks narrated by James Marsters. Awesome audio series. I've not gotten to this one yet though

Obviously don't start with this one, but if you're looking at the series, go ahead and get this title for the price. I prefer the audiobooks which are wonderfully narrated by James Marsters, and found the recommendation on an audible post when I was looking to burn some credits before canceling. It's years later and I've purchased every book and still have my audible subscription in part due to how much I've enjoyed this series. This series really got me back into literature when I was looking for something to listen to during a long daily commute a couple years back.

For anyone looking for more magic in a "modern" technological world, I also enjoyed the Black Ocean series (all three of the completed series are available for an audible credit each and are each between 60 and 80 hours each, if you want to talk about value).

It's probably for the best. Only the medium of animation could do the books justice (being cheap enough to cover the material in full faithfully) and I don't see any adaptation on the horizon.

Great series indeed. Definitely try the audiobook. Better experience than reading in my opinion. Personally, I don't think the last 3~4 book were as good as the early ones.

This is what it's worth tbh.

Quality in the series has dropped off precipitously. There was a six year gap between book 15 and 16, and the last couple of installments (including the one on sale here) have been mediocre. I suspect books 16 and 17 were originally one book, split into two and padded out to novel length, yielding uneven pacing and tedious, unsatisfying plots.

The amazon reviews are accurate here. Read books 4-15 if you want, but if you find yourself becoming bored, feel free to stop at any time.

Sheesh... been some years since his last one... didn't even notice this came out, over a year ago now. He seemed to have gotten bored with Dresden and wrote a half dozen other novels instead. Stick Out Tongue At this point I'd almost have to reread all 16 to catch up.
