Would probably have been a great read except more than half the pages weren't centered on the paper when cut. I can only read half the book. This might be a good time to make sure you have a good printing company. Not happy about this book.
Falling between White Night and Small Favor, this story features Harry, Molly, and Marcone fighting a psychotic denizen of Undertown. It’s good to watch Apprentice Molly really flex her magical muscles! So, here I am, reading another graphic novel. I keep saying I don’t care much for them, but yet I keep reading them. This one happens to be a unique story in the Dresden Files series (as opposed to a graphic version of an existing novel). What I liked: Molly’s rainbow colored tips. Mouse and Mister’s teamwork. Ms. Gard’s battle axe. The banter and Star Wars references between Harry and Molly. What I didn’t like: We don’t get much information about the antagonist. Who is he? Where did he come from? Has he been in Chicago all this time? What riled him up? How come we haven’t seen him before? Considering his own justification for his actions, it seems like he’d be someone Harry or Marcone would have encountered previously if he’d been around a while. The “golem” was faceless and only vaguely humanoid. Made it hard to identify what it was at first. Ms. Gard’s mini-skirt. I can’t remember if her outfits have been described in any of the books, but I picture her fighting in sensible clothes — meaning pants. But, she’s a Valkyrie; I guess she can fight in anything she wants. Overall, a fun story in the Dresden Files universe. Fun to see Molly get her fight on. Based on what I know at the moment, not a critical part of the series story arc, though. Purchased. Review courtesy of onebooktwo | one book, two reviews.
