    Oh, me too. It was definitely good, a "mediocre" Dresden book is still a 10/10 when it comes to entertainment. But considering the scope and scale presented in Changes, it was inevitable to be a let down.

    Basically, I found myself wanting to plow through the whole Dresden being dead storyline. It was cool seeing the spirit world, but I only found myself truly interested when the characters we all love were re-introduced. It was definitely a "slog" to get to that point for me

    I'd embed it, but for some reason I keep getting an error message when I try to do so.

    Copy and pasting from Butcher's Twitter:

    "Finished the finale of Peace Talks this morning.

    Just the wrap-up chapter to go. :)

    News regarding pub dates as I get it."

    So how long will it take to get it published? I assume that means he's done writing, but it still needs to be submitted to an editor and such.

    I think for Sanderson it takes 6-9 months.

    Also acceptable as I was a big fan. Probably annoy Dresden-only readers though.

    Pretty sure Sanderson is notorious for delivering far-along drafts though. Probably depends on the writer and how rough their rough drafts are. If the editing process is short then that would speed things up.

    Great decision. First few are solid, quick reads. Then they really take off.

    I think the series really takes off around book 4. Really expands the universe
