    Angolo del pignolo: era più difficile creare uno scudo senza il mio braccialetto [...] lo scudo cedette e il braccialetto si surriscaldò (non testuale, ma è il senso che conta)

    The 5th book of this serie doesn't disappoint.
    It's very similar to the earlier ones and since Dresden is quite funny I don't see why a reader should put the books aside. Whichever subplot Butcher has in mind(and I know there is..there MUST be one!) at the moment is still hiding somewhere.. ...continue

Whichever subplot Butcher has in mind(and I know there is..there MUST be one!) at the moment is still hiding somewhere..so there's not much to say besides: start reading from book 1 or you'll miss a lot of connections in the future!
    See you after the 6th volume..

    Favoloso e geniale come sempre! Questa volta Harry si trova niente meno che a dover recuperare la Sindone di Torino che è stata rubata. Tra angeli caduti, demoni e vampiri che cercano di ucciderlo e cavalieri di Dio che vogliono proteggerlo, riuscirà Harry a risolvere il caso?

    Love reading about Harry Dresden! I've been hopping all around the series, so know different things, but am always surprised by what happens. Harry seems like a good person to know

    Another enjoyable romp

    Butcher keeps rolling out his trademark high-energy, slightly sloppy, pedal-to-the-floor-and-hope-they-won't-notice mix of noir and urban fantasy.

    Butcher keeps rolling out his trademark high-energy, slightly sloppy, pedal-to-the-floor-and-hope-they-won't-notice mix of noir and urban fantasy.

    Harry Potter for (the not so) adults. The books feel like comic novel (I suppose there are comics about the character, too, they made a TV series already, after all) so don't expect Gene Wolfe.

    After 5 books I start noticing that in his effort to keep the adrenaline high the author is perhaps packing too many things in too little space (and time). This requires the introduction of always larger teams of more and more powerful baddies, and a veritable Legion Of The Super GoodDoers to help the main characters, who is competent and powerful, but often needs a little deus-ex-machiery to save his hide.

    Check your disbelief at the door, and enjoy.

    Odio ripetermi, ma anche in queso caso Butcher fa un lavoro notevole. Il paesaggio intorno a Dresden continua a disegnarsi ed arricchirsi di elementi, e i dettagli non appesantiscono ma rendono l'ambiente in cui i personaggi di Butcher si muovono sempre più complesso e solido.

    I personaggi già incontrati in passato che ritornano in scena vengono meglio approfonditi e inquadrati, alcuni sembrano anche cresciuti rispetto alle loro precedenti apparizioni, si agiungono personaggi nuovi e la trama si fa sempre più complessa riuscendo a non perdere una goccia di originalità, di ironia e di scorrevolezza.
