White Night Review

Title: White Night
Author: Jim Butcher
Series: Dresden Files #9

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Wizards, Faeries, Demon, Ghouls, Vampires, Ghosts

White Night is the 9th installment of the Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, following (Proven Guilty). Despite the war between the White Council of Wizards and the Red Court Vampires is still ongoing, this story is more of an interlude completely self-contained as a mystery for Harry Dresden to solve.

In this story, Harry was called on a case of series of suicides by a number of women. Upon further investigation of the crime scenes, Harry and Murphy deduced that the women are murdered. Later it was learn that majority of the victims belong to a witch group known as Ordo Lebes, which Dresden translates in his correspondence course Latin as "Order of the Cauldron". He discovers that his brother Thomas is involved. Not only him, but others of the White Vampire Court which complicates matters.

Like in most of the books in this series, someone is trying to kill Harry and this time, this somewhat a personal vendetta against him. He just can't figure out who it would be. One thing is for certain though, he has to find the killer of the women before its too late and expose them for who they are before more women die. Another twist in the story is that the other remaining members of the order hired Elaine, Harry's former girlfriend as a consultant wizard to help them with defend against the killer.

This story ended in an awesome amount of epicness as the author likes to do great fight scenes and dramatic finales. As usual this a must read for every Dresden Files fans despite the slow progress with the main plot.
