by Jim Butcher

Fans of the other books in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher should enjoy this short novella, published in a limited-run printing by Subterranean Press. Set in the Dresden Files universe, Backup is a brief adventure of Harry's half-brother Thomas Raith, one of the White Court vampires of Harry's world. Thomas has always been one of the most interesting supporting characters in the Dresden universe, and that is only built upon by giving him his own story...complete with secrets that he's keeping from Harry. There's action and humor aplenty -- Butcher's trademark writing style. But the overall Dresden Files world is carried forward and expanded as a result of this short work. Highly enjoyable, but definitely light-weight in comparison to the larger novels in the series. -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library
