I called it! I told you all about my book three theory. When book number one is epic, often book twos fall a little flat. I think in a lot of ways that we have just huge expectations about what we want and we are always a little let down. I rarely read a good book two but always push through them for book three. Because book threes are nearly always where the money is!
Jim Butcher’s Grave Peril was no exception to the three book rule. This book took off in a way that the other two couldn’t touch. I found the lack of Agent Murphy in this book to be the only real disappointing part. There was more of Susan then I would have liked too. Not that these stories are all about the romance, they are far more slay the dragon. However there are romantic connections and I just don’t feel it when it comes to Susan and Harry. Like at all. I am really rooting for Agent Murphy in this one. In the end I guess maybe we won’t see Susan so much anymore but it doesn’t change the fact that she was sort of a big part of this book.
I’m guessing that we won’t see to much of the Never Never again until book 5. Harry has a year until his Godmother can got after him and there seems to be between 6-9 months between each book (in book time that is). Yea, I’d guess maybe well see more Never Never in book 5. Also MORE MURPHY!!!!
Bring on book 4 people, bring it on!
