Smart and funny. Perhaps as importantly, new! We are after all, in the "between times". (Who isn't in the middle of another reread?) This cool lady is just on book eight with vids out for the first four. (+3 hidden vids)

So far so good imho. Unafraid to be both critical and giggly with a tough-grading teacher vibe, but all the hallmarks of a true fan. Posting here in the hope that folks will check out her channel. Spoiler free* so far, but she already admits that may be temporary. Honestly how could it not be going into the future? Hope you all enjoy!

*I'm of the smallish camp that thinks there is no such thing as a spoiler free review beyond the binary thumbs up or down.

Cat Sith, because Cat Sith.  ;D

Kincaid going down would be fun. Maybe with Murphy taking over potection of Ivy and thus making them both more prominate in the story.

I'd also like to see how Marcone gets along without Gard and Hendricks.

For pure blaziness of the glory killing off Bob would be both wild and painful to read.

OK, found my Harry song (I think), man it's tough to get the Foo Fighters out of your head eh? I don't know. May have to come back to this one as "under the gun" may be a little to "on the nose" for our hero.

Harry Dresden - 45 by Shinedown

On EDIT:

So Griffyn612 nailed this one down earlier  in this thread and I plum forgot, or just got lost somewhere on page five of my YT song list. Sorry about that!

These next two are so good, oh man. If I don't get hand picked to score the new Dresden Files TV show soundtrack, it's only because I'm way off and have no skill at this endeavour whatsoever! Wait, nm all that.

Susan Rodriguez - Keep on Walking by Jem

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJPOscFf54M

Susan's theme had to be strong, had to be true, and had to be heartbreaking. Nailed it!

Mab "Queen of Air and Darkness" - Devils Playground by Gram Rabbit

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFDJfD9qKt8

A theme that needs to build and build and then build some more. You have to imagine the odd troll or random winter court member coming in on command and adding the backup vocals. At least that's how I imagine it.

Trying to come up with a theme song for Dresden but I can't get that Cold Days workout montage out of my head. (Foo Fighters "Walk" I think it's called) I'll get there.

Archangel Uriel - (aka "heavens spymaster") Unbalanced Pieces by Soulsavers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS3UmyOA-u4

I know Uriel is "the quiet one" but I imagine him walking in slow motion while laying waste to Egypt's firstborn while humming "... and the chessboard still has two unbalanced pieces.". Just me? Yeah, probably just me, lol.

Michael Carpenter - John the Revelator by Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6NDdF-R2uk

This one mostly fits in theme and style, but I admit my knowledge of Christian themed music is sadly limited. Thank God for heardonTV.com.  ;D

One of those cases was when Bridget thought that a heroine will do such and such to try and save Folly. She decides that is not practical and that she is not a good fiction heroine. Then something happens and she does exactly that. I laughed so much (I think all the references where done in Bridget.'s mind I think that is because being a lonely teenager she loves to read/watch/whatever fiction works)

Both you and Aminar make a good case and this is what I get for being nitpicky.  ;D You are also right about the humor, Jim's humor is constant throughout. It lead to many evenings of reading late into the night and possible "brain fog".

But it is what a character with an understanding of narrative would say.
Too often our characters live in a world where nobody has any sense of story or genre awareness. It's fun to see characters acknowledge the conventions of storytelling versus our more postmodern trope refutation tastes.

A more than fair point Aminar and one that may have simply sailed over my head at the time. I'm suddenly at a loss, trying to recall if that was the characters inner monologue or the author perspective. (I read it as Jim's but could be wrong)

I had to think long and hard to find something for the "not like" portion of this particular thread and that was the nit I picked. Maybe on my reread in the future I wont think twice about it and flow right along with the story. It just felt a little like the book version of breaking the fourth wall to me at the time.
