Entire review hidden because of spoilersI had to think real hard before I gave this a rating On the one hand it was one giant action scene and I m a sucker for fantasy action scenes On the other hand as I get older good action scenes can often highlight the other weaknesses of a story And boy does this story have weaknesses Let s go through them1 Way way too much going on Characters appear and disappear almost at random major villains from other books pop in to say hi and are never heard from again This just cheapens prior books and is unnecessary the scene in Graceland is especially bad this way2 The main villain of the book is boring Essentially she is a kaiju with no personality whatsoever the Fomor were actually scary but she is just not interesting perhaps because she is too powerful The most interesting villains in the Dresden Files are the human ones rather than the monsters Ethniu has no real personality or motivation to speak of beyond DESTROY EVERYTHING MUAHAHAHAHA3 Harry comes out of the book or less in one piece when she should by all rights be dead or at least grievously injured reuiring much recovery time He goes from underpowered in the last few books the Winter Mantle being nerfed to ridiculously overpowered in this one because otherwise he wouldn t be able to win His power level seems to be whatever Butcher thinks the story reuires rather than what actually makes sense for his character at any given timeNow we get to the big gigantic problems all having to do with characters4 Marcone and Namshiel This came out of nowhere and absolutely ruins Marcone s character probably permanently The whole point of his character is that he is a mortal that has managed to accrue power in the supernatural world by sheer intelligence and grit If he suddenly has magical powers and is by all appearances nearly as powerful a wizard as Dresden he just become another magical power I know Butcher probably thought this would be an awesome scene but I found it extremely disappointing5 We finally get an explanation of Nemesis and it makes even less sense than the concept did in Cold Days This is another thing that is ruining the series Butcher already had an extremely compelling arc villain in the Black Counsel and the Outsiders Nemesis simply complicates things unnecessarily and leads to unanserable uestions how many people can he yeah Nemesis is an actual person possess at one time If his plan is to shatter the accords why take this overly convoluted route that ended up totally failing I could go on and on about thi it s become my least favorite aspect about the plot of this series6 And finally Murphy s death is bar none the worst moment not only of this book but the entire series She gets randomly killed by a minor character her death takes up a couple of pages and lacks any dignity whatsoever If she had gone out literally pages earlier in the book it could theoretically have been powerful and sad But this this was just appalling And don t give me the well sometimes people die this way in war nonsense Butcher is a storyteller he has choices about how to write these books To kill off the most important character besides Dresden in such a slipshod almost random and meaningless fashion has gotten me the closest I ve gotten to swwearing off this seriesAfter all of that I almost feel like changing my rating to one star I ll keep it where it is because the battle scenes really are pretty cool most of the time since that s almost exclusively what this book contains it at least succeeds in that I m only keeping with the series because Mirror Mirror sounds so interesting and I ve been waiting so long for it but I have very little faith that Butcher can pull it off at this point For such a slow release it feels like a rush job that nobody gave him good feedback onI thank NetGalley for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest regrettably brutal review

    Spoiler Free Video Review Here Talk Video Here relatively new to the series I started last December I didn't seem to have the disdain for Peace Talks some of the longtime fans did I didn't have the long wait and I went in

    When the news came that Peace Talks was being split into two books because the story was just that epic it sounded like a great idea But now I've made it through both books and Editing should have been the answer Not two books Both
