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 …

    " I always enjoy the Dresden novels but if you don't read them in order, you miss a lot of the store line. I have read them hit and miss but am now listening to them in order and really am enjoying them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 2/10/2014

    " 4.5 Stars I found all the action at the beginning a little much. I felt like I didn't get a chance to catch my breath in between fights. That said, it was a wonderful story as usual. I love the characters and the dialogue between them. The ending was very satisfying and the audio performance by James Marsters was excellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2014

    " This guy can't catch a break. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 12/28/2013

    " Jim Butcher did not disappoiont on this one. I loved it! Could not put the book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Gines | 12/17/2013

    " I'm not sure why but this book was not as exciting as others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/1/2013

    " This is probably one of the better Dresden Files. It had all of the great characters we love, and it was a fun read. Like all of his books, though, there is quite a bit of language and sexual innuendo. I think I liked it better because there were fewer scary monsters/images. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Howie | 10/30/2013

    " I'm really not sure about the divine influences on Harry's story, or the path that Michael is on, or how disconnected and coniving the faery queens are - but, its still a good story and lots of fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 sue barr | 10/27/2013

    " loved it, adore this series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grunblau | 10/25/2013

    " Harry at his best. A wonderful read. part mystery, part fantasy series. Harry, the wizard for hire, gets in another bind, gets beat up and solves the crime. No spoilers here. Loved the Book. Excited to buy the new book, sad to finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Indigo | 10/24/2013

    " The plot thichens and it's a wild ride with lots of turns and curves! Did you get it ? I just loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Eric | 10/16/2013

    " definitely has been fun reading this series... Thanks Marie for letting me borrow your books!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil | 8/19/2013

    " Dark, gritty, and wholly entertaining. Not happy about one of the characters in the book - but I'll not spoil any surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 8/16/2013

    " The series really hits its stride with this one. Only one more favor owed to the Queen of Air and Darkness... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 6/3/2013

    " Morgan makes so much more sense after this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 joby | 5/7/2013

    " Very fast paced with the return of the dendarians. Dresden again goes uber-power, but still fun. Not sure where the series is going though... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Faustinblack | 9/29/2012

    " I was really disappointed by this one, and I can't say why. This is the only book in the Dresden Files that I didn't read several times. I hope he redeems himself next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Pegg | 4/28/2012

    " Another great Harry Dresden book, but I'm ready for something different from Harry. Each book is starting to run into the other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Phule | 10/11/2011

    " These books get better as the series goes on, in my opinion. I would say the best book so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 7/31/2011

    " I'm getting pretty close to caught up! This wasn't my favorite by any means, but it was still pretty darn good. What can I really say about this series, ten books in? It hasn't disappointed me ever, that's for sure. On to the next! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 5/14/2011

    " There was some interesting character development in this novel, but it was ultimately a little too biblical for my tastes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/9/2011

    " It took a while, but I really like the development of the characters. The first couple are kind of light (as light as evil magic/torture/death can be!) but the issues have become more "importnat" in the later books, yay! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 5/9/2011

    " I think this may be my favorite Dresden File yet. This is currently my favorite series to read and this individual book may have made it to top shelf for me. Lots of fun new items for future books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank | 4/21/2011

    " While I have enjoyed this series detective/fantasy series overall I cannot help to think that Butcher has mailed it in with the last two books. In this book Harry Dresden battles a team of fallen angels with little effective help. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 4/20/2011

    " Another fine mess for Harry Dresden and company. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel | 4/19/2011

    " There is a sense of foreshadowing in this book - friendships will strengthen, trust will deepen, more powers will become involved, danger will be on the rise, and everyone's lives will be changed. It's as if this story is a deep breath before the plunge. I can't wait to start the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 4/17/2011

    " So far, this is the best of the series. Plenty of Murphy and Michael without all of the Faeries in the Never-Never. I don't care for the direction of Harry's love life, and I would have liked more Bob, but still an excellent adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meggie | 4/13/2011

    " The story was enjoyable, Harry still thought to much, for my liking, but in overall the plot played out just nice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 3/28/2011

    " Good fantasy/noir-like novel. I didn't understand all the references to the previous novels in the series since I hadn't read them, but it was still fun reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 3/25/2011

    " One of my favorites of the series, where some of the many hanging plots begin to get sewed up. (well, maybe) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 3/20/2011

    " Just can't get enough of the Harry Dresden books! Maybe I'll be all caught up before the baby arrives, and I won't mind waiting for the latest one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 3/15/2011

    " i like the series. Usually I'm not into magic/fantasy style books but dresden pulls it off for me. "

About the Author
Author Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. He read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old—The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight, he’d added the rest of the Narnia books, the Chronicles of Prydain, every book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels, and The Lord of the Rings to his count. He was pretty much doomed from the start. Love of fantasy drew him toward a fairly eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding, archery, martial arts, costuming, music, and theater. He played a lot of role-playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and eventually got into live-action role-play. He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until, just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every piece of her advice. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways. The result was the Dresden Files. She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on writing. Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera. He has plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one.
