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....

Not only is this a dramatic thrill ride, full of twists and suprises (as well as tragedies for the supporting cast!) it's masterfully performed by James Marsters: THE voice of Harry Dresden!
I got to meet James Marsters a couple of years ago at a convention, and he was delighted to hear from a fan of his Dresden work.
He's as big a fan of the stories as we are- and the love of the characters really shows in his performance.
If you're looking to get into this series, start at the beginning- you're in for a real treat!
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.
