22. Skin Game, by Jim Butcher (454 pages)
Harry's morals are tested in this one as he's called on to perform his duties as the Winter Knight. Definitely a page-turner, as usual. Harry has to do some soul-searching, and is helped along by his friends and his subconscious. I also personally appreciated some of the references in this one--Evil League of Evil, for example. For a man likely to burn out electronics if he looks at him wrong, Dresden manages to get his geek on.

23. Coyote Dreams, by C.E. Murphy (416 pages)
Jo faces a new, larger challenge--one once again the backfire of her mistakes. And it puts everyone she knows and loves in danger. Parts were a bit predictaible, but I overall enjoyed the book. I liked her personal growth.

24. First Grave on the Right, by Darynda Jones (310 pages)
This was a really good debut urban fantasy. Charley is a private investigator who just happens to also be the grim reaper. Since childhood, she has been the portal through which the departed pass on, acting as guide and psychiatrist. It also meants she doesn't have many friends; people tend to shy away from the hocus pocus. But it turns out there's a whole lot more out there than just her as a portal, and it's about to come crashing through her life. I liked the characters and world built here.
