Publisher's Summary

Harry Dresden, Chicago's only practicing professional wizard, should be happy that business is pretty good for a change. But he also knows that whenever things are going good, the only way left for them to go is bad. Way bad. Recent examples: A duel with the lethal champion of the Red Court, who must kill Harry to end the war between vampires and wizards...Hit men using Harry for target practice...The missing Shroud of Turin - and the possible involvement of Chicago's most feared mob boss...A handless and headless corpse the Chicago police need identified...Not to mention the return of Harry's ex-girlfriend Susan, who's still struggling with her semi-vampiric nature - and who seems to have a new man in her life. Some days, it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. No matter how much you're charging.

    "No suprise"

    Don't get me wrong I love Dresden and the cast of crazy characters that revolve around him. I love the pithy style of banter and dark humor. I love the high fantasy of magic and fairy. What still bothering me is that the arcs are still formulaic, meaning there are no interesting twists. As for the procedural aspect of the books thus far, it leaves allot to be desired. The detective and police work portrayed is boarding and rudimentary. It would be better if the mundane aspects were tighter because it would make magic more interesting and impact full. I just keep getting the feeling that I have read this book before... Maybe I have.

    "Dresden picking up"

    Dresden Files keep getting more engaging by the book. Adventures and melodrama blend better and more intensely once the characters are developed and familiar to the returning reader.

    "Never see it coming"

    If you love this genre but hate the typical monsters vs human series, this is a must for you. Unique storyline and fabulous character creation. This was written to make us think twice about who your standing next to and what is in the bad, really. Fun and scary

    "Good over Evil"

    Getting back to this series is ways fun. Harry as usual is back in trouble by no fault of his own, of course. A couple of new characters are added and his relationship with Michael deepens. The content may be of a religious nature but really was not at all about religion, but more about duty and good over evil. This addition to the series does not get tied up in a neat little bow at the end so we will probably be seeing these characters again, who now, have been added to Harry's ever growing list of enemies. Marsters narration keeps getting better in every book.

    "Another fantastic story."

    James Marstere knocking it out of the park again with Jim Butcher. 9.5/10, though the .5 missing is purely because of story things that happened.

    "Harry Dresden does it again"

    Just recently started the series from the beginning. Each and every book has satisfied my need to see where the nation's only Professional Wizard's adventures lead this time.
    Between Dresden's sense of obligation toward justice and Marsters narration the stories come to life.
    Each one seems better than the last.

    "Great Book! Best so far! Wonderful narration!"

    It was a wonderful book. It was the best one I've read so far. The narration was awesome! James Morrison really knows how to use his voice! Jim Butcher really knows how to tell a story!

    "My favorite of the Dresden novels."

    This book introduces several important recurring characters, and the beginning of an over-arching storyline that is still being resolved.
