Harry Dresden is alive! But despite being returned from death, things aren't looking up for Dresden. He is now the Winter Knight at the beck-and-call of Mab, faerie Queen of Air and Darkness, and she wants him to do the impossible: kill an immortal. Secondly, Demonreach, Harry's getaway island, is under siege from some powerful outside forces and is keeping a dark secret Harry must protect. Fighting enemies new and old, with problems building and time running out, our hero must also battle within himself to keep the Winter mantel from consuming his soul and turning him into a merciless and evil killer.
VERDICT Butcher's latest installment (after Ghost Story) in the "Dresden Files" series will keep readers invested from start to finish with lots of action and an ending that will have them craving the next title. With a colorful cast and laughs throughout, this series will appeal to readers interested in urban fantasy or Kim Harrison's work. Though Butcher's loyal fans will be craving this one, it is relatively easy for anyone to pick up and start the series with this book.
