Lyhyt elämäkerta
Jim Butcher read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old-- the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight, he'd added the rest of the Narnia books, the Prydain Chronicles, every book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels and the Lord of the Rings to his count.

So he was pretty much doomed from the start.

Love of fantasy, his personal gateway drug, drew him toward a fairly eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding (including trick riding, stunt riding, drill riding, and competitive stunt racing), archery, martial arts, costuming, music and theater. He played a lot of role- playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and eventually got into live-action roleplay where players beat each other up with boffer weapons.

So, really, he can fly his nerd flag with pretty much anyone, and frequently does.

He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until, just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every piece of her advice; fill out outlines and worksheets, and design stories and characters just the way she'd been telling him to do for about three years. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways. The result was the Dresden Files, which sure showed *her*.

She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on writing.

Jim has performed in dramas, musicals, and vocal groups in front of live audiences of thousands and on TV. He has performed exhibition riding in multiple arenas, and fallen from running horses a truly ridiculous number of times. He was once cursed by an Amazon witch doctor in rural Brazil, has apparently begun writing about himself in the third person, and is hardly ever sick at sea.

He also writes books occasionally.

Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera. He's plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one. He lives in Missouri with his wife, romantic suspense and paranormal romance writer Shannon K. Butcher (who is really pretty and way out of his league), his son, and a ferocious guard dog.

This had be a string contender for the best of the Dresden novels. Then the gimmick ending came along, dropping this from a high four to a middling three stars.

One of the best Dresden books -- definitely blowing the lackluster Cold Days out of the water; this is Harry Dresden as he should be-- without thinking weird rapey thoughts every few pages. Butcher seems to have really taken the criticism about the male gaze / rape thoughts -- to the point that Harry literally thinks consent is sexy.

I was really scared that this book, with the set up of Cold Days, was going to go some gross places. Instead it went 'No, gross is a thing of the past!' instead it gave us a rollicking heist book, and one of the best Dresden Files books to date. There's action! Adventure! Intrigue! Double cross! Sex that isn't gross! Faith and hope! Women who are awesome! Women who are terrifying! Women who are terrifyingly awesome! Harry manning up and handling his bullshit!

In short, it was everything I didn't think I was going to get, and the super amazing surprise made it all the more awesome. This is a must read Dresden Files book.

In the Cinder Spires series, Jim Butcher trades in commercial wizardry on the mean streets of Chicago for a postapocalyptic aero-punk world with large talking cats, duels, flying beasties called mistmaws, and sword-slinging duelists on giant airships. The Olympian Affair is a delayed sequel to The Aeronaut’s Windlass (2015). Palace intrigue, aerial battles, mysterious etherialists, and ominous magical pronouncements from wise old cats spice up the adventure. If you like Windlass, you will like this one.… (lisätietoja)

I vaguely want to give this book 3 stars, but really think that would be undeserved. It wasn't very well written, the characters were badly fleshed out and all seemed like caricatures, and the plot was actually too fast paced. overall, pretty juvenile, though I will probably read more at some point because I am told they improve.
