Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files Dog Men 6


It’s the end of the road for Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #6, at least for this particular story arc, and it’s a hum-dinger from start to finish.

Wizard for Hire, Harry Dresden is determined to save the town of Taylor from an infestation of ghouls, but that means he has to form an alliance with the Wolf People who are just as fang-tastic as the name sounds.

Whilst Dresden is busy hoping his particular version of wolves are not biting the hand he feeds them, Deputy Gentle is trying to evacuate the entire town of Taylor before those good folks become ghoul chow and it’s a battle he looks set to lose. As head ghoul Carolyn leads her army against the townsfolk who have taken refuge in the town church, whose holy ground doesn’t have the same deterrent effect on ghouls as you might have hoped for with vampires. Desden and his dog, Mouse, launch a final, all-out attack.

Jim Butcher’s The Dreden Files: Dog Men #6 is the high-octane thrill ride that you would expect from a finale delivered by master storytellers Mark Power and Diego Galindo. A skilful mix of horror, supernatural and unmasked super-heroics, Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #6 is a standout title offering something for everyone but never loses sight of its core principals, which is to tell the best darned story possible, with a central character in Harry Dresden who looks set for iconic status in the not too distant future. The fact that he has a cute dog as a sidekick doesn’t hurt either.
