Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

Aug 10, 2011

The latest entry in the bestselling Dresden Files, Ghost Story picks up right after the shocking ending of Changes.  Everyone's favorite wizard is in new territory, without his staff, his rod, his magic, or even his body.  Yes, Harry Dresden is a ghost charged with solving his own murder.  As usual, there's something bigger going on, and Harry must fight to protect his loved ones, his city, and everybody else against the forces of darkness...which just might include him.

The usual crew is around—and it's simultaneously sad and uplifting to see how they've reacted to Harry's absence—as well as a couple of new characters, introduced with typical aplomb and snarkiness.  This is very much a book for those who have read the rest of the series.  If you haven't, start back at Storm Front and enjoy the ride.

There seems to be a lot of love it or hate it amongst fans, so you should definitely give it a read to find out where you fall.  At the end, you can decide if you want to consider it an end to the series, or if you, too, are eager for more adventures.
