White Night: Book Nine of the Dresden Files (The Dresden Files #09) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Butcher’s best! Young wizards are being targeted and killed in his area, and Harry Dresden must battle a conspiracy that threatens the White Council from within. If you have only watched the Sci-Fi series The Dresden Files, you are missing half the fun, most of the story, and a whole wealth of wonderful characters. Dresden is richly drawn, as are the other characters who give life to this series. Butcher moves the plot along with a deft hand, weaving in backstory and plot twists that made this book difficult to put down and left me disappointed that I’ll have to wait a while for the next Dresden File.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sensational addition to the Dresden Files adventures — from a USA Today bestselling author.

Professional wizard Harry Dresden is investigating a series of deaths in Chicago. Someone is killing practitioners of magic, those incapable of becoming full-fledged wizards. Shockingly, all the evidence points to Harry's half-brother, Thomas, as the murderer. Determined to clear his sibling's name, Harry uncovers a conspiracy within the White Council of Wizards that threatens not only him, but his nearest and dearest, too...

Review:

"At the start of Butcher's superlative ninth Dresden Files novel (after 2006's Proven Guilty), hardboiled wizard detective Harry Dresden learns that someone is killing Chicago's minor wizards. Joined by his police friend, Sergeant Murphy, and his Amazonian apprentice, Molly Carpenter, Harry discovers that his brother, Thomas, is a prime suspect. As a Warden of the White Council, at war with both the Red Court of blood-drinking vampires and the White Court of psychic vampires, Harry has to go into action. And there's plenty of that, including a battle with ghouls on the lakefront that turns into a gripping flashback of another encounter with ghouls some years before in New Mexico. The large cast features such finely drawn characters as gangster Gentleman Johnnie Marcone and Harry's first love, Elaine Mallory. This installment is sure to get a lift from The Dresden Files TV series, which debuted on the Sci-Fi Channel in January. Author tour. (Apr.)"
