For Harry Dresden, there have been worse assignments than going undercover on the set of an adult film. Still, there’s something more troubling than usual about his newest case. The film’s producer believes he’s the target of a sinister curse-but it’s the women around him who are dying.

Harry’s even more frustrated because he only got involved with this bizarre mystery as a favor to Thomas-his flirtatious, self-absorbed vampire acquaintance of dubious integrity. Thomas has a personal stake in the case Harry can’t quite figure out. But Harry is about to discover that Thomas’ family tree has been hiding a shocking revelation that will change his life forever…


I believe that this is one of Butcher’s best novels, out of Dresden Files. So far. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy his other books in series, I did. However Blood Rites was one of those novels that I could not put down till I reached the end. Actually I did not want to put it down. It made me happy that I got few days off due to snow day. It gave me time to read it, and there were couple nights that I ended up reading late without realizing it. Butcher had the reader so involved with Harry’s story that I could actually feel, see everything that Harry was going through in the book. I had a feeling like I was actually there, going on adventures along with Harry, Thomas, Murphy. How can you not wonder what’s going to happen next? If they will succeed? I was and I couldn’t seem to get enough of their adventures. Blood Rites had a nonstop action, mystery.

Thomas: what is there to say about him? Expect that you can help but love him, despite him being a vampire. From the minute that I met him, I had a feeling about him, that he was different from the other vampires. At same time I did wonder what his intentions in helping Harry were. Who would a vampire want help a wizard? Thomas being Harry’s half-brother wasn’t what I expected. But it had me understanding their bond much more. To me, it felt like from moment that two of them, there was a bond there between two of them. Thomas isn’t like other vampires, despite his denial, I know that he cares for Justine, more than he wants admit. Otherwise he wouldn’t stopped at last minute, or see how she was afterwards. He’s in love. I am curious to see how Thomas and Harry will do as roommates, what else they will learn about one another.

The more I read The Dresden Files more Murphy becomes one of my favorite characters in the series. She’s tough; she doesn’t let anyone take a advantage of her and never gives up. I can tell that her job is important to her, and that she cares about safety of the others. We need more cops like her out here. Of course I love the bond between Harry and Murphy, what the two of them have is a real friendship. I am glad that their friendship got back on track, to the way that it used be before. I just hope that it stays like that for good now. I just wish that others would appreciate her more, including her own mother. I am not big fan of how her family treats her. What she does is a lot of work and dangerous as well.

Blood Rites is one book that you want check out. It has action, adventure, suspense with a lot of mystery added in the mix. You will find yourself turning the pages for hours to come. Be ready for a wild ride.
