Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.…
Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful.
He doesn’t know the half of it.…
Mab has just traded Harry's skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry's most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.
It's a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he's dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.
Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess - assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance.…

This latest installment did not disappoint. Marsters perfectly picks up the style of Harry from the books. I have no wish to spoil it for others so I will only say Polka will never die!
Jim Butcher is a master of torturing his own protagonist. This installment continues the tradition. It's great fun :)
James Marsters isn't just the voice of Harry Dresden, Hi is Harry Dresden. His performance is once again spectacular. I can only hope that these two finish out the series together :)
Best Butcher Book
Only Butcher can write like this
It would give away the ending if I tell my favorite part. Loved the direction for Molly is about the best I can do.
I was caught hook line and sinker throughout
I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.
Ummm YES!!!!! For two reasons... 1). I can listen to it anywhere, the ultimate appeal of audiobooks. 2). JAMES MARSTERS ..... IS ..... HARRY BLACKSTONE COPPERFIELD DRESDEN
Nicodemos..... Coolest villain ever
EVERYTHING..... He's the voice of Dresden as much as dick hill is Jack reacher
YES.... Best Dresden book yet
Buy it.... It rules
I love books. Fantasy is my preferred genre but I have been known to read some historical fiction and some werewolf/vampire sets as well.
The latest book in the Harry Dresden series was wonderful. Hilarious as always and James Marsters did yet another fantastic job bringing him to life.
