Honestly I was kinda disappointed in skin game. Bought it release date and am a big Dresden fan. I've read prob 100 series and it's in my top 5 .
Right behind game of thrones, kingkiller series by Patrick rothfuss.
But I honestly think he's making the classic fantasy series mistake.
He's stopped making the story about the characters and started just havering Dresden fight a bigger and bigger monster every book.
First book the hero fights a kobold, second a goblin, then an Orc. Sooner or later you run into having to fight gods and the story is lost.
Butcher did a stint putting out books every 6 months a couple years ago. I think he might have burned out a little. I just didn't buy some of the
mechanics of it all.
One of my favorite butcher things is how he made his world believable.... At least in the world it's set in. I just didn't think this tale, or the
last one really, were as well woven.
