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 series is just phenomenal. the world is flush and engrossing, and James marsters really makes dresden come to life. skin game is the latest in a long and well rounded story full of interesting characters and new trials for them to face.
This book delivers with growth of the storyline, and more description of the world Dresden lives in. Murphy as bad ass as she is- is only human. I find this refreshing, and anchors reality to this supernatural world. The addition of Greek Mythology contrasting God and the Devil made this book even more exciting for me. You will love this one!
Definitely the best in the serie so far. Also James Masters is getting better and better and has actually turned into one of my favorite narrators.
The book has everything and more...
I have been listening to the Dresden Files series for some time now, and this is my second time listening to it. Butcher has put in major thoughts of religion, whether it be catholic dominated Christianity or the use of the old gods.
I highly recommend this series to any wanting to follow the smart ass, brilliant, thought provoking Harry Dresden, greatest urban wizard of all time.
I've read the chapters of the Dresden files up to this book. The readers performance brought the characters to live in a way I never could have by simply reading. This wasn't so much a reading of the book as is was a performance. I loved every minute.
As usual with The Dresden Files it was a depressing moment to reach the end of the book! BUT...Jim Butcher has done it again! It was an absolutely amazing read!!!!!
