Excerpt from Grave Peril

Did you pick up a copy of She Wore Mourning? If so, I hope you are enjoying it! Let me know what you think.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I just finished Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, Book 3) by Jim Butcher. A very fun read about a smart aleck Wizard fighting evil forces trying to take over the city. Something is stirring up trouble, and he needs to figure out what it is before it destroys him and his friends.

The sign on the door reads, simply, Harry Dresden, Wizard. Just inside the door is a table, covered with pamphlets with titles like: Magic and You, and Why Witches Don’t Sink Any Faster Than Anyone Else—a Wizard’s Perspective. I wrote most of them. I think it’s important for we practitioners of the Art to keep up a good public image. Anything to avoid another Inquisition.

Jim Butcher, Grave Peril

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 something—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…

  1. This is such fun – especially in the earlier books. I really enjoyed it and hope you, too, are finding Dresden’s world fun to visit (wouldn’t want to live there, though!). My TT this week is a historical adventure – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/08/01/teaser-tuesday-1st-august-2017/

  2. Now I’m curious, although I’m not usually into “wizardry.” LOL. Here’s mine: “SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN”

  3. I think I’d pick up some of those pamphlets! Haha!! Here’s my Teaser for this week: http://bit.ly/2f58jM9
