Cold Days is Giving Me Cold Feet!
Ack. Have you ever been so involved in a book that you were almost afraid to turn the page? That’s how I’m feeling about Jim Butcher’s latest in the Dresden Files series, Cold Days. The suspense is killing me, and I keep finding myself wanting to flip to the final pages and see how it turns out before reading any more. Now folks, this is something I have never done ONCE in my entire reading life, which encompasses a LOT of years, believe me. But dang. Between not knowing if Harry can save half of the country from being obliterated, and not knowing who the heck he’s finally going to give his heart to (assuming he makes at least SOME steps in that direction before this book is over), I’m in agony, here. Take a guess which one is worrying me the most. Hint: I have every confidence that Harry will somehow save the world, yet again. But man, I don’t know if Butcher will get it right on that other issue. And yes, I’ll admit it. As a hopeless romantic, THAT’S the issue that worries me the most as I approach the halfway point in this book. Message to Jim Butcher: you screw this up and I’m coming for you, myself, and believe me, nothing you’ve ever dreamed up for these books will be scarier!!!
Okay, dire warnings done, I can now say that this book is, so far, excellent in all the right ways. I’m trying to overlook the emotional torture, and concentrate on the fact that once again, Harry is in the proverbial pickle without a paddle. Oh, wait. I mean, he’s up the creek without a pickle. Ummm…that can’t be right, either. Let’s just say, he’s in big trouble on too many levels to even mention in one post. I will be back with a full review, when I get to the end.
*going off now, muttering to self* “I will not peek, I will not peek, I will not……………”
