  1. Good to know that I am not alone. MoL was just exhausting. Also Chapter 3 has been released and it is not a fight scene
  2. Well that is something at least. I very much doubt that it will make PT better in retrospect, but it might not make it the waste of time it currently appears to be. Seriously, at this point PT might as well have started with the antagonist's appearance.
  3. So do the dangling and underdeveloped plot threads actually get resolved and fleshed out? Does Butters continue to be an egregious wishfullfilment character?
  4. Eh. I have to say that I liked the Peace Talks trailer more. Probably because there was some mystery surrounding the plot and the characters, whereas here we already know what is going on and even what Harry plans to do. And Peace Talks' lackluster quality probably did not help. The only real things that intrigued me were Also on a positive note the trailer gives no indication that Overall I am still rather pessimistice. Peace Talks desperately needed at least another of editing and rewriting and that was supposed the completed book before BG was split off.
  5. I also do not have much hope that the dangling and underdeveloped plotthreads from Peace Talks are going to be resolved satisfactorily in what should amount a giant battle. What suprises me is that BG is going to have more pages than PT (according to Amazon) even though it was only supposed to be the final battle in the original version. And I worry that either the battle itself will be extremly drawn out or Butcher shoves a bunch of sideplots in it that really do not have any place there.
  6. That does not make it better. If anything, it makes it worse considering that the fairy queens hold significant power of their knights (see Maeve and Slate in Summer Knight) and considering that he as of Peace Talks owns her a rather substantial favor that Molly needs to collect on... Granted that would be uncharacteristically dark for Butcher, but I can not help but wonder
  7. Yeah. I agree with pretty much all of that Even if it is closer, I do not think that it reaches the same quality and that is really more of the issue here. Even if we treat is as more of a detective novel, then there is still the issue that Dresden does bareyl do any investigating of Honestly, now that I think about it, I am really worried for Battle Grounds EDIT: Now that I think about it
  8. Personally I blame the editor. They should have noticed the drop in quality and encouraged (read: forced as much as possible) the go over the book again delays be damned. Actually it is worse. At least Elaine, Aviendha and Min were fleshed out characters. Here it is not even good fanservice
  9. Yeah I my feelings exactly. This is probably the worst book since Grave Peril. Even if Battle Grounds turns out to be amazing, the split harmed Peace Talks too greatly. The book definitely needed more rewriting after the split was decided.
  10. Chapters 1 to 4 of Peace Talks are up on Butcher's website: Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4
  11. A new piece of microfiction got released a few days ago starring two characters from the Bigfoot short stories: https://www.jim-butcher.com/microfiction-job-placement
  12. Trailer is out: https://youtu.be/F17zuaRJG0U Book 17 is coming on September 29th: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/645503/battle-ground-by-jim-butcher/ And here is also an excerpt from Peace Talks (the one from the Kickstarter I suspect): https://io9.gizmodo.com/check-out-our-exclusive-peek-at-jim-butchers-new-dresde-1842415798
