Family (Dresden Files Quote) – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds

In honor of the book Peace Talks (Dresden Files #16) finally being released after 6 loooong years,  I thought I’d share a Dresden Files quote:

Skin Game (Dresden Files)

So I just finished reading Skin Game, the newest installment in the Dresden Files series. The (probably) year-long wait for it was well worth it. The book was exciting, hard to put down, and full of Harry’s standard snarky, wise-cracking humor and pop culture references, as one would come to expect from the series (and one of the things I always look forward to). From the get-go, when Harry is asked to help one of his arch-nemesis to steal a valuable item from a vault belonging to the Lord the Underworld (yes, that Lord), the book hooks you and doesn’t disappoint. I found the lack of an appearance in the book by Thomas a little disappointing, but it was rather nice to see Michael in action again. Overall, the book was terrific, and I am eagerly looking forward to the next one. Sadly, I’ll have to wait yet again.
