Grave Peril

March 2, 2016

By Jim Butcher Reviewed by Miranda BoyerI
 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!
