Ghost Story by Jim Butcher

Not much to say. It’s par for the course, and will sit nicely alongside Butcher’s other Dresden Files novels, which all feature decent artwork by Chris McGrath. Curious to see Harry Dresden’s name on the tombstone, though I can’t quite make out what’s written below it:

He Died During/Doing (?) the XXXX (?)

    “Here lies Harry Dresden – He Died Doing the Right Thing”

    Looks good :) I love the Dresden books. Very nearly almost caught up – halfway through ‘Small Favor’.

    I think it says, “He died doing the right thing.” The “doing” isn’t as clear to me as the last few words, but it’s all that makes sense in context.

    “He died doing the right thing”

    “He died doing the right thing.”

    Harry’s had a tombstone for a while, with matching empty grave.

    Bianca bought him the tombstone… the head of the White Court.

    My husband, father and I just read Changes, but I was the only one surprised that the title was so different from the others, so it’s good to see that Changes really was an intermediary novel between the before and what will begin in Ghost Story. Very exciting!

    Bianca gave the tombstone to him in book 3 at the party celebrating her promotion in the Red Court. This was moments before she captures Susan. Legally (By wizarding world standards) Harry was there as her guest and Susan was not so he shouldn’t try to save her.

    Bianca’s plan was to kill Harry during his rescue attempt, hence he would die “Doing the Right Thing”.
