Reading Notes: Summer Knight (The Dresden Files #4)

Summer Knight (The Dresden Files, #4)Summer Knight by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This isn’t a review, but rather a few notes to myself about the werewolves that appear in this book. The werewolves actually play a relatively minor role, and this post really doesn’t address most of the story. If you’re curious, though, I really like the Dresden Files, and do recommend you read the series.

This particular volume featured the Alphas, the group of werewolves that we first met in Fool Moon (Book 2). Apparently they’ve matured quite a bit and have turned into some pretty good allies for Dresden. The alphas seem to be what Butcher describes as classic werewolves: humans who use a spell to change his body into that of a wolf, but the mind remains human. These werewolves can be hurt and killed the same way as regular wolves. They also can change shape at will. Overall, they seem to be a pretty nice lot. Butcher/Dresden also emphasizes that they’re quite muscular.
