Someone is targeting the city’s magic practitioners, the members of the supernatural underclass who don’t possess enough power to become full-fledged wizards. Many have vanished. Other appear to be victims of suicide. But the murderer has left a calling card at one of the crime scenes—a message for Harry Dresden, referencing the book of Exodus and the killing of witches. 

Harry sets out to find the killer before he can strike again, but his investigation turns up evidence pointing to the one suspect he cannot possibly believe guilty: his half-brother, Thomas. Determined to bring the real murderer to justice and clear his brother’s name, Harry attracts the attention of the White Court of vampires, becoming embroiled in a power struggle that renders him outnumbered, outclassed, and dangerously susceptible to temptation. 

Harry knows that a lot of people will die if he screws this one up—and one of them will be his brother.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The eighth book of the Dresden Files is one hell of a good read, propelled by Harry Dresden’s sardonic narration and a difficult mystery with a satisfying, if somewhat melancholy, conclusion. During the action-packed, fast-paced narrative, Harry moves from one crisis to another with barely a chance to catch his breath. The political machinations are fascinating, as are the moral choices that Harry and his allies are forced to make.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Longtime fans of Butcher’s series, as well as new devotees of the Sci-Fi Channel's Dresden Files show, should thoroughly enjoy Butcher’s latest romp through Chicago’s paranormal underworld.

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “[A] superlative...novel.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “As usual in the Dresden Files...Butcher puts the characters in a lot of danger, creates appalling moral choices for them, and spins an excellent noirish detective yarn in a well-crafted, supernaturally charged setting. The supporting cast is again fantastic, and Harry’s wit continues to fly in the face of a peril-fraught plot.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The latest in Butcher’s supernatural noir series...delivers a tricky plot complete with against-the-clock pacing, firefights, explosions, and plenty of magic...A real winner.”

    Library Journal

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • USA Today Bestseller

    " I reread it a couple of days ago and realized I didn't actually like this one very much. Maybe it's because I am not a big fan of the White Court/Red Court vampire war storyline. "

    " Previous comments still stand; this series just keeps getting better. Really enjoyed this installment right up till the end. It's interesting to see characters other than Harry really come alive with depth and emotion. Loving it, onto the next. "
