Wizard for hire Harry Dresden gets mixed-up with the dead in this "haunting, fantastical novel"( Publsihers Weekly ) in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Harry Dresden's faced some pretty terrifying foes during his career. Giant scorpions. Oversexed vampires. Psychotic werewolves. It comes with the territory, when you're the only professional wizard in the Chicago area phone book.

But in all Harry's years of supernatural sleuthing, he's never faced anything like this: the spirit world's gone postal. All over Chicago, ghosts are causing trouble--and not just of the door-slamming, boo-shouting variety. These ghosts are tormented, violent, and deadly. Someone--or some thing --is purposely stirring them up to wreak unearthly havoc. But why? And why do so many of the victims have ties to Harry? If Harry doesn't figure it out soon, he could wind up a ghost himself...

This book has sold me on reading the whole series! The first book was ok, I wasn't crazy about it, but a friend of mine convinced me to keep reading. Book 2 Fool Moon, was better and piqued my interest. This one seals the deal though! The story got a lot more interesting! Plus it helps that it had a lot to do with vampires, as i'm a huge fan of them xD Def recommend the series! :)

Working my way thru the series. Recommend it. Entertaining easy reading without danger of any deep or unsettling thoughts! Exactly what one needs when one is anxious.

Out of reading materials and short on time, I grabbed this book on the run. I'm not a great fan of fantasy, but got totally wrapped up in this book and finished it in one day. Butcher is a terrific writer and now I'm going back to the beginning of the Dresden Files series. A terrific read.

Continues to be just as much fun as the previous ones in the series. We're also introduced to Michael, Knight of the Cross for the first time in this novel.

Butcher's third book in the Dresden Files was just as spellbinding as the previous two, however, Grave Peril begins in the middle of the story and was a bit confusing to follow.

This series is as addictive as Black Court Vampire saliva.This particular book is no less satisfying than the previous too, although it starts a little into the story, and fills you in on what you've missed between this book and the last as you go alone. Well worth purchasing, to read again and again.
