Harry Dresden lives!
After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness.
After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill. Guess which one Mab wants first?
Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.
Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own… his soul.

Please, NEVER recommend an abridged book for me. Really. I love to read and I've become really addicted to audios.
Yes, it's excellent on almost all points.
The rest in the Dresden series. The Jim Butcher Dresden books are the books all other Urban Fantasy is compared to.
Marsters has become the voice of Harry Dresden. Even when I read the print versions of the books I hear Marsters' voice for Harry.
Not extreme, but I did laugh.
I was disappointed in the last book but this one was certainly worth sticking with the series for. Was a great book with tons of action. I am also soon glad that they brought back Marsters to read this. He is exactly what Dresden should be.
I always recommend Dresden to friends.
Dreseden and the Wild Hunt was one of the highlights of the Novel.
Cat Sith was my favorite, I hope he returns
The End moved me the most, it ended in typical Dresden fashion, leaving you wanting more.
The story of Harry Dresden coping, or attempting to cope, with being the Winter Knight is very compelling. The twists and turns this book takes are typical Butcher, and are as good, or better, than ever. Harry's cast of pals is back and haven't lost a beat, plus we see a side of Mack we never have before. The best part of the audio book is that James Marsters is back as the narrator, and he is a fantastic Dresden, something that was truly lacking in Ghost Story. I highly recommend this book to all Dresden fans, and if you have yet to start reading the series...What are you WAITING for?!? Go, Go, GO!
With James Marsters back narrating, it is as great as expected. I hope they never are so misguided as to record again without him as narrator, once was too many.
Marsters is Dresden. The dramatic pauses and flavor he puts into the character takes a great story and makes it even better.
I'm amazed at the consistent quality of this series. Many good series get overly complicated and fall off after a few books. Not this one!
After last year's "Ghost Story" left me really bummed out (the story and the only audiobook of the series without James Marsters), "Cold Days" more than makes up for it! Top notch story and the true voice of Harry Dresden!
The old Harry is back with even more power. He's once again trying desperately to balance "doing the right thing" with not going over to the Dark Side.
Harry Dresden and Sith.
Don't hesitate! Get it!
I am amazed the at the quality and uniqueness of each of the Dresden stories. I could not turn off the audio book because again the story pulls you into the lives of the characters and you live out the story. Fantastic!
It's all connected
Changes because a lot of things are reborn
The fight at the birthday party
I laughed through the entire book. I shed a tear at the end
