No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.
An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness - and she's calling in her marker. It's a small favor he can't refuse, one that will trap Harry Dresden between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and one that will strain his skills-and loyalties-to their very limits.
It figures. Everything was going too well to last....

Marsters had done it again! he's lulled me into the world of dresden and his preternatural allies and enemies. I can't wait to here the next one!
I love this book and have read it before, slightly disappointed in the fact that a section of he audio is missing while I listened to it. Get it together audible and fix this problem it isn't right paying for an audio book that is missing parts.
Excellent narration and the flow of the story is very good. Only problem is that a certain part of the narration is missing, when they are in the safe house and the Denarian reveals her face. I had to find a copy of the book online to read what was missing and it was quite a bit of dialogue.
About half way through the book...i should have marked it. The tone changes/skips. It sounds as if a word or two is left off. Ill see if I can remember or find it during another play through.
Each book in the series can stand on its own, yet in following the series you become anxious to see how each character plays into the greater picture. Really enjoying it and highly recommend, great narrating, interesting characters that you begin to love or loath.
My first one if this serise. I enjoyed the short lived tv show, but this was soooo much better. James Marsters performance is spot on, excellent in every way. If they ever do a movie, they dam well better cast him as Harry...hells bells!
Netflix should do a complete reboot on the series...keeping it closer to the original storyline. ..who agrees that it would be a hit?
