Book 18

Title: Ghost Story
Author: Jim Butcher
Series: part 13 of The Dresden Files, follows Changes
Pages: 578
Summary: [Spoilers for the previous books]When an unknown someone shoots him and leaves him to die, Harry Dresden hopes he might be heading to a better place. Unfortunately, being dead doesn’t make Harry’s life any easier.

Trapped between life and death, he learns that his friends are in serious trouble. Only by finding his murderer can he save his friends and move on — a feat which would be a lot easier if he had a body and access to his powers. Worse still are the malevolent shadows that roam Chicago, controlled by a dark entity that wants Harry to suffer even in death.

Now, the late Harry Dresden will have to pull off the ultimate trick without using any magic — or face an eternity as just another lost soul…

My thoughts:

Well, Harry as a ghost is awesome. ♥ I love how he has to figure out how to do stuff and the way he reacts to certain things/sensations. Awesome.

But, my heart is breaking so much for the ones he left behind - Molly, Karrin, Thomas (which we only have for a few pages in the end. :/), Butters, the wolves - everyone. :( *hugs them so much*

I really like Mort and especially Sir Stuart (*sobs*). They are interesting characters and I hope that Mort sticks around.

Woah, I'm curious about Demonreach. It calling Harry "custodian" and basically keeping him alive (with the help of Mab)? Wow. I hope, this will be addressed in some way in another book.

The murderer of Harry? Wow, didn't see that one coming. o.o
