From the first book I read with Harry Dresden I was hooked. Every book in this Urban Fantasy series about the private investigator wizard in Chicago is entertaining and interesting. Blood Rites by Jim Butcher continues the trend. This book’s characters and plot keeps readers hooked with change and mystery.

First, the changes in characters keeps this book in the series interesting. Growth in the main character helps. Harry Dresden changes a little in each book instead of remaining static. He overcomes difficult circumstances as in previous books and this time deals with loneliness and lack of family. Readers and Harry learn something new about his life by the end. Harry’s police friend Murphy changes a little too from her dealing with supernatural criminals. Other secondary characters add to the entertainment of the story. Mr. Butcher deepens his characters with interesting situations.

Next, the plot creates a strong mystery to keep readers hooked. Harry is asked by the White Court vampire Thomas for a favor. He tries to find out who is cursing an erotic move maker, which kills the women around the film maker in disgustingly spectacular ways. The investigation brings him into a clash with dangerous Black Court vampires and angry magic users. Along the way Harry makes a discovery that changes his life for the future. The author keeps the plot tight and suspenseful with plenty of action making the book hard to put down for readers.

Blood Rites by Jim Butcher is another exciting book in the series about wizard private investigator Harry Dresden. Change and mystery occurs in the characters and plot to hook readers for an interesting, entertaining read. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next volumes in the series.
