I really love this author/series. This is the second time I have read this book and it is even better the second time. Warning, this is a pretty gruesome book with a lot of shocking details.

The third in the Dresden files series. Harry faces ghosts this time. Not as good as the second, but still an interesting read.

I've read quite a few biographies of both J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, so I was worried this book would be too much of stuff I already knew, but it wasn't. It did a good job balancing its focus on Lewis, Tolkien, and Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield and even throwing in stuff about the other lesser-known members of the Inklings. The book did multi-page analyses of the the Inkling's most important works - decently insightful, too. There were some fresh ideas about books I've read and re-read and read about quite a lot.

Review
Natasha has one day left in the US, one last chance to find a way to keep her family from being deported back to Jamaica. Daniel has an important interview that will determine the course of his future. Following a series of improbable events, the two will meet and spend this one unforgettable day together and fall in love. Natasha doesn't believe in fate or destiny or love at first sight. But Daniel thinks that something is drawing the two of them towards each other, something more powerful than simple coincidence. He thinks that the universe couldn't possibly allow them only one day together...could it?

First of all, let me say that romance is not my favorite reading genre. But I did enjoy this! I think I tend to be cynical about "destiny" and "love at first sight," but this book does address that perspective and persuaded me not to be so uptight about it. :) The only thing I had was that for a story that takes place all in one day, this book felt pretty long. But otherwise I really enjoyed it!
