I'm liking Justin. I agree with Madeline - he's been mentioned too many times to not show up somehow. Elaine turned up.

Wasn't Justin a member of the Council? He was pretty powerful and was in a position to know that stuff when he was around. If he's still alive or somehow just around, he could use his old methods to stay in touch with what's going on at the Council.

Maybe Justin has one of the denarii?

I like Justin too now that Madeline brought it up. I just think there still must be a traitor on the council.

I would totally buy Justin as a Denarian though. And we know someone used hellfire in the attack on Winter so it could totally be him

Agreed - there's probably still a traitor who is keeping Justin in the loop.


I'm starting the series over again to see what clues I can pick up.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Yeah me too.

Spoiler: show
I noticed in Fool Moon they tell us that Elaine had the same pentacle as Harry. Do you think that's a clue or a mistake?

Also in Grave Peril they mention the Gatekeeper in reference to some Old Ones. I'm wondering if they'll come into play

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Spoiler: show
"Old Ones" + "Gatekeepers" = Not good. (See Anthony Horowitz's "The Power Of 5 (UK)/The Gatekeepers (US)).

It looks like someone's ripping up the Laws and trying to bring death, destruction and just about everything else not good with him/her too.

Is that a television show? Haven't seen it.
Spoiler: show

But the death and destruction sounds just like Justin.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Book series.

Spoiler: show
Wouldn't know, only got Storm Front and Fool Moon (not that it'll stop me from speculating on what'll happen). Justin's the "supposedly dead" tutor that Harry got the Doom of Damocles for, right? (Who the heck's Damocles?)

Man how bad would it suck for poor Harry if he got the Doom of Damocles for a murder he didn't commit.

Well, he was placed under it wasn't he? Basically the same as getting it. It's like saying you're going to do something but you never do it.

Your earlier question asked who is Damocles. Have you heard of the Sword of Damocles from Greek legend? If not, here's a link: [url

Darn! He was so perfect. I still have hopes, though. Madeline is correct in that Justin is mentioned just too often.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

As spoiler tags are so much fun, here we go ...

Spoiler: show

Finished Fool Moon last night and figured that you should pay attention to the small details. As Parker captured Harry, I didn't know who this person even was, as I couldn't remember to read about him earlier. Later as the name "Streetwolves" fell it was clear, but still I thought Parker was not there while Harry was at their place. So how do he know that it was Parker?

Another question. Tera is a wolf who can change in human form, what I suspected to be right at the moment when Harry soul-gazed and couldn't see anything. But what about the Alphas? Normal humans who can change in wolfs or the other way round like Tera? Tera referres to them as pack etc, as if she's the leader and the others something like her cubs. But I guess they are normal humans.

Easier said than done.

You can read what's inside the spoiler tags in the email notifications, even if you don't want to. But ... *also reads what inside the spoiler tags here in the thread* ... Can't help it.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Spoiler: show
So, I'm a few chapters into Dead Beat, and I'm wondering who snapped the pics of Murph killing the Renfield and of Harry & Murph bent over it's body?

Harry thought someone they couldn't see must have been there to snap the pics---but Kincaid was there, and in the background, he could have done it. Kincaid was also the one who'd phoned ahead and said that the Red Cross was at the shelter. Kincaid also conveniently swept Murph off to Hawaii just when Mavra does her little 'deal' with Harry.

And why does Ebenezer not like Kincaid?

Seriously! And what IS Kincaid?

I have no idea on the photo, maybe Mavra with a veil?

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Spoiler: show
The fact that he served Drakul {14th/15th century} and the connection to Vlad Tepes/Tepish having a 'rebellious faze' with the Black court makes me seriously wonder about Kincaid. He's obviously not a Black Court vamp, he'd have rotted long ago. He's not pretty, so he's not a White vamp. And he wasn't acknowledged by the Reds during the duel. Then there's his knowledge as a mercenary and what hurts the Reds the most...and his little cryptic comment to Harry about Mavra going down 'easy', as though telling him to expect Mavra to make a return. Return she does, with pics of Harry, Murph, and Renfield---and Kincaid is conveniently not caught in the photos?

He's definitely not human. He had Dresden in a circle, was able to power it up with his own blood, so he can at least do minimal magic. He says he's not a wizard, which really leaves only some fae/mortal combination---or he could be a Denarian. He looks like a man {Harry said he wouldn't put him under the age of 50, not due to physical appearance though}, I wonder how he'd appear under the Sight? I mean, even Ebenezer who's at least a 100-150 looks old in comparison to Kincaid.

What about Marcone and the mysterious girl in the persistent vegetative state? Sounded eerily similar to what happened to the Archive's mother at the birth of Ivy---the whole 'pass knowledge from mother to child kills the mother' thing is quite similar to what occurs to Reverend Mothers passing on all 'matriarchal' knowledge to their successor {Jessica and her offspring, Alia} and the breeding program of the Bene Gesserit seeking to create a male Reverend Mother, the Kwisatz Haderach {Frank Herbert's Dune}.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

Oooo, having read the whole thread I must admit I'm really interested. It sounds great. I've been on the look out for a post-Harry Potter fantasy series to get 'into' and the fact that so many books are already out means no long waits between books...for a while. I've already 'penciled in' the Temeraire series but I'll be giving this a gander too.

Re: Dresden Files - The Adult Wizard Harry

I've finally given up and read the spoiler tags (even TENSHI's ), although I had to stop reading after Blood Rites some weeks ago. I didn't expect a thread full with spoiler tags is that attractive to me. Ok, positive thing: I've realized I should finally order 7 and 8 from the UK, whatever it will cost.

Spoiler: show
There's also the events surrounding Murphy and Kincaid in Hawaii. What happened? Why won't Murphy talk about it? I must say that Kincaid intrigues me.

Someone speculated (can't remember if it was here or somewhere else) that Ivy's mother and Marcone's daughter are linked, if not the same people. The timing is tricky, but it could work.

Yes, I know. For luck I put it under the tags, otherwise I would have spoilt you evily.

Will order 5-8 when I finished 3.


About the spoiler tags, is it possible to write what book you are talking about in the tags first, so that people can see beforehand if they can look inside? Please
