After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

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.

I have recently been devouring the Dresden Files like a starving man at a Chinese Buffet. This story was fascinating, the action was well paced and the narration was top notch. Can't wait to see what other shenanigans Harry gets himself into.

I am usually not a huge fan of books which attempt to combine fictional characters into one super universe. But this is well done. can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

I really did struggle to finish this story but it was more because of what the story and the main character evoked in me.

As a person who struggled with self esteem most of my teenage life, those thoughts sometimes flashed in my head. The urge to blame others and hate them as much as you blame yourself hit a little too close to home.

That's the sign of a good story when it gets so well under your skin.
