Nobody panic. I'm calling a Code Red immediately.

I want the evac team airborne in six minutes with the full extraction and relocation package operational before they enter active airspace.

We need six copies of DEAD BEAT, three econo-size bottles of vodka, a steakburger with fries, hand cut, none of that frozen garbage, and a surgical team with supplementary Ukrainian nurses standing by.

MOVE PEOPLE, MOVE. THIS IS THE REAL THING!

QT/KK... stay calm.. it's going to be okay. Try not to move.

GO GO GO

The Eebs are dead, dude. They were Red Court and likely had no access to a powerful enough hidey-hole to avoid that spell from Changes.

Sorry Wolf_2099, but post deleted - there are other threads to discuss the entire book. This one is clearly not at this point.

As of CHANGES they're in the custody of the Huntsman, who is on par with Mab.

I forgot about that.

Oh, and I looked up the Ghost Story predictions thread. Totally called Fae being able to see ghosts... although it was for Toots.

Great choice to read this Abyss. I just finished it, it was awesome. No big surprise there. Only another year or so til the next one. ;)

Spoiler


For now I will bow out of here until we can converse in non-spoilers. I hate clicking all the boxes hehe.

In other news, I did my good deed of the week... I introduced my brother to the series on Sunday and he is already almost through Summer Knight and loving it.

God I love Butcher...

I think for pacing and pure quality of read/comedy no one comes close to him at the moment... really enjoying this new book...

Spoiler


And when I compare it to the other big recent release that I was really excited for... aDwD... for me... so far... aDwD doesn't come close to the enjoyment I am getting from GS...

But then again... this is the Dresdencrack addict talking... ah my precious!

It's probably an unfair comparison given the differences between the authors and series', but altho i was enjoying DWD, i'm totally enjoying GS more.
