Peace Talks by Jim Butcher

Peace Talks by Jim Butcher

I usually don’t pick bestsellers for my book reviews. I like the esoteric, hard-to-find authors out to make a voice for themselves. Like me. The problem is that this is during the Great Quarantine Depression of 2020, and I can’t get to either the library or most bookstores these days. If I want a book from the internet, I’m going to spend my money and the waiting period on something I know and love. Comfort literature. With that in mind, I had to get the newest Harry Dresden File by Jim Butcher, New York Times Bestselling Author and Nice Guy.

Intelligence has no place in these hallowed halls). I had it reserved on Amazon and devoured it as soon as it arrived. This review will be tough to write, since the series has a long and complex history, which means spoilers not only for Peace Talks but the rest of the Files. And

I usually buy video games after I’ve seen or read a review of them, but I barely needed any persuasion to buy Chimera Squad during its opening week. I love the X-Com series. It’s about an alien invasion of Earth. You, the player, commands X-Com, a rapid response international military unit to fight the invasion off. The aliens have highly advanced technology and merciless species at their beck-and-call, whereas you must struggle to catch up. At least they don’t have those tripods that the Martians used in War of the Worlds. The sequel takes a bold turn by starting off with X-Com’s defeat in the
