Part of The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. For Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, there have been worse assignments than going undercover on the set of an adult film. Dodging flaming monkey poo, for instance. Or going leaf-to-leaf with a walking plant monster. Still, there's something more troubling than usual about his newest case. The film's producer believes he's the target of a sinister entropy curse-but it's the women around him who are dying, in increasingly spectacular ways.

As far as I know, The Dresden Files is an open-ended series that Butcher will continue to write until he decides to end it, which is fine with me. He's set up a universe that has endless possibilities to it, from simple mysteries to humorous romps to soul-searing betrayal and heartache.

Harry Dresden, Wizard extraordinary, never has a slow day! So, when Thomas, Harry's inexplicably helpful, white court vampire 'friend' asks Harry to take a client who's seemingly in fear for his life, Harry tentatively agrees with the caveat that if he takes the job, then Thomas must come clean with Harry as to why Thomas has been so very helpful and even gone so far as to save Harry's life a time or two...Thomas agrees to the caveat, though he warns Harry that he won't believe it, anyway!
It quickly becomes apparent that there is indeed a dangerous plot underway that seems to be targeting the Producer of a newly formed motion picture studio that has moved into Chicago after breaking with a bigger studio in California, in hope of being able to make more creative pictures and cast a wider range of actors and actresses. Harry gets a rude surprise when he shows up for his first day on the case, undercover as a production assistant, only to find that the company is producing Adult Erotica...porno, in a word!
Still off balance because of the unusual environment, Harry is quickly embroiled in one problem after another, fighting to derail what appears to be a very strong Entropy Curse that seems to be targeting all the women on the set, and there seems to be no connections between the victims.
On top of that, Harry is attacked by Black Court Vampires, led by Mavra, a dangerous and very old survivor of the pogroms and Vampire Hunts that occurred following the publication of Bram Stokers "DRACULA", which spelled out, in plain language, all the weaknesses inherent in the Black Court Vampires, and how to kill them so that they stay dead!! Only the very strongest, most vicious, survivors lived through that time, and Mavra was in that number. Now she has come to Chicago with the express purpose of destroying Harry Dresden, and every man woman and child that he has helped or cared for since he came to town.
There's no rest for the weary, as Harry hurtles from one crisis to the next...full out mayhem on an epic scale! Harry must call in favors where he's able, and recruit from a very limited pool of talent, and while, as usual, he manages to put together a Dream team of potential power, even a win may leave him in an untenable position...it may take 'Blood Rites' to make things right in the end

Not much more needs to be said for positive reviews of this series. I am more than half way thru reading the current 15 books in the series, and intend re-reading them again to pick up pieces that I missed the first time. Not bad considering the first book was an "accidental" discovery.... guess Jim Butcher's teacher showed him - HA!

Synopsis: Blood Rites is the sixth book in Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files books. This title brings the vampires back into focus and has us dealing with yet another court getting involved in Harry's life.

The book's main plot is primarily triggered by the Vampire Thomas of the White Court, who asks Dresden to take on a case as a personal favor for all the past times that Thomas had intervened to help save Dresden's life. The case in question involves a head of an adult entertainment studio who may be under threat from a sort of entropy curse similar to one that Harry had been subject to in the last book. In addition, it appears that the vampire Black Court has setup shop in the city and are also threatening Harry Dresden's life.

What I Liked: Obviously I really liked how this book added to Harry Dresden's character lore by answering a lot of different questions we may have had or didn't even realize we should have asked at this point. I can imagine how some folks might find the reveals in this book as a little left field, but they're not really. They make a lot of sense given Dresden's journey thus far and I appreciate hw things got to this point. It only means bigger and brighter stuff for the future.

And the plot in itself isn't bad either. What starts as a seemingly simple look into a potentially minor case becomes a major throw-down with not just one vampire court but two of them - both the Black and the White courts. That seems like a bit much given how past books had him pulling out all the stops to deal with just one of the courts, but don't worry. Dresden gets some serious help in dealing with his foes this time around.

What Could Have Been Better: While the main plot was still compelling the main "mystery" as far as detective cases go didn't go so great. I feel like it was left largely underdeveloped in favor of other story elements involving the vampire courts.

And while they generally had big plan for dealing with the Black Court with a preemptive strike before they could get a firm foothold in the city, the actually confrontation did feel a little underwhelming. Sure, Dresden has never been all that great in an extended battle and Butcher seemed to want to play to his strengths and keep things on the shorter side, but that was it.

And as much as the notion of the guardian puppy was cool, it felt a lot more like noise in this book as it was just sort of there on the side even during more important plot developments. I know Butcher is obviously seeding the book with story elements for future books, but this could have been handled better.

TL;DR: All that aside, this book left me feeling very fulfilled as a reader and fan of the series and I'm glad that Butcher tackled things in the way he did. This may not automatically be my favorite book in the series, but it definitely ranks way up there.

I don't usually leave reviews when they number in the thousands but I wanted to add my voice to the chorus. This is a great series, some are better then others but that is to be expected with a series with this many volumes. It would be far too lengthy to list all of the things I like about this author, the world he has, and Harry as a character. I will list the two minor complaints that I would make for almost every Dresden book. The author really should have educated himself on both firearms and the layout of Chicago (even though I know it was not his first pick for a city). His description of firearms is inaccurate and borderline embarrassing at times. He refers to guns either inaccurately or ones that just don't exist. However if that is my only major complaint then it is really understandable. Great work I am a big fan and supporter. I am going to list this review for almost all volumes of the Dresden files as I feel it is mostly consistent throughout. This is not my top favorite but it is still engaging and worth reading. Happy reading.
