Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a very powerful wizard and a dedicated private eye. He is also a wise cracking trouble magnet. Fueled by a tempest of guilt, sleep deprivation, malnutrition, bad temper and frankly awful personal grooming. Harry is hurtling toward oblivion. According to Harry that is nobody's business but his own.

The Winter Queen of Faerie manipulates him into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    " I'm afraid I read this whilst I had a cold. I couldn't concentrate, and read it in short bursts over an extended period. The plot is convoluted, but does all tie together nicely. It's a fast moving adventure which I think benefits from being read quickly. Had I done so it might well have got 4 stars. "

    " I liked this book in the sense that it was good - not great. I'm not sure what it is with these Dresden books. I enjoy them. I rip through them in no time, but wind up being somehow disappointed. Part of it may be that the second book, Fool Moon, was so good and none of the others have measured up. Regardless, it was a fun read and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I've already started the next book. "

    " Now Harry's really in the soup as the White Council believes he has started a deadly war between the wizards and the vampires. Harry professes his innocence. But on top of that Mab the Winter Queen has purchased Harry's debt from his fairy godmother Leanansidhe. Mab wants Dresden to investigate the death of the Summer Knight. Harry refuses but the Council forces him to investigate. Aided by Billy and the Alphas and Toot-Toot, Harry gets to the bottom of another mystery. Lots of fairy action. And a former lover Elaine introduced in this volume. Great fun. "

About the Author
Author Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher 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. He lives in Missouri with his wife, romantic suspense and paranormal romance writer Shannon K. Butcher, his son, and a ferocious guard dog.
