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.

Written by New York Times bestselling Author Jim Butcher.

Narrated by James Marsters (Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Grimalkin, Wizards council, stepsister, fairy queen, Ghoul and Ogre. I'm enjoying the plot, and the description of the real Chicago - this book describes the underground, and talks of the Manhattan Project's met lab. Also the very American-ness; FTD (a floral wire service, and the Electric Company superhero (a children's educational television programme). There is the usual showdown of fighting at the end of the book. ( )

Harry Dresden is up to his neck in foes. This time Dresden's foes are, well, everybody. The vampiric Red Court, who want revenge for the events in Grave Peril; his own White Council of wizards, run by the usual cowardly appeasers and bureaucratic weasels; and last but not least, the Sidhe, the creatures of the fey, whose opposing houses of Summer and Winter keep one another equally balanced so as to avoid too much power in any one set of hands. But the balance has been disrupted. Someone has murdered the Summer Knight, that realm's champion to its queen, Titania. The Winter Queen, Mab, has been blamed, and she makes Harry an offer he pretty much can't refuse: if he helps her to find the Knight's murderer and clear her name, she'll help him. All Harry has to do is help avert an all-out war between Summer and Winter. No problem!

Like usual, spending time with Dresden and his wizard problems turns out to quite fun, and quite enthralling. Butcher - for as much as he known for making escapist noir/urban fantasy - is a craftsmen of character. He's also great at employing action. It's never too gritty and has a lot of humor. It's that careful balance between suspense and wit where both can work that Butcher has a true gift for. Humor in these kinds of fantasy novels can all too easily call attention to itself — The Dresden novels, for the most part, avoid the scourge of postmodernist pretension.

Read for wizards, fey, and Chicago-above-Chicago, hilarious hijinks, and the hardboiled fantasy noir. Stay for the random fight inside a Wal-Mart.

Hello Fellow Readers!

I finally finished the 4th book in the Dresden Files Series (only a million more to go!). While the last book was setting up this huge story-line for Dresden that I am pretty sure is going to span a couple of books, this book was the first in which we actually get to see what this bigger picture is. While you only get a glimpse of what could go down, it's huge. So, Dresden is still Dresden. He's pissing everyone off and of course, getting himself in over his head. At least he still has his magic and perviness. Dresden is still reeling from the consequences of his actions from with the Red Court and now he's forced to take a case for the Winter Queen.

What I really liked about this book is we finally see Dresden accept help. He is starting to realized he cannot protect and leave everyone in the dark. Lots of allies from the past books are brought into the fold and we get to meet a few new ones. The list of side characters are getting a little long for me to remember who is who, but of course I remember the regulars like Murphy and Bob, but we now have the Alphas, the Queens and the wizard council members. That is a lot of side characters to remember.

The story was pretty good, even with the over-sexualization of female characters, and I feel like Butcher finally has an idea of where this series is heading. ( )

This book is for big sisters everywhere who have enough patience not to strangle their little brothers - and particulary for my own sisters, who had more than most. I owe you both so much.
And for Mom, for reasons that are so obvious that they really don't need to be said - but I thought I would make special mention of candy cane cookies and that rocking chair that creaked me to sleep.

Sometimes the most remarkable things seem commonplace. I mean, when you think about it, jet travel is pretty freaking remarkable. You get in a plane, it defies the gravity of an entire planet by exploiting a loophole with air pressure, and it flies across distances that would take months or years to cross by any means of travel that has been significant for more than a century or three. You hurtle above the earth at enough speed to kill you instantly should you bump into something, and you can only breathe because someone built you a really good tin can that has seams tight enough to hold in a decent amount of air. Hundreds of millions of man-hours of work and struggle and research, blood, sweat, tears, and lives have gone into the history of air travel, and it has totally revolutionized the face of our planet and societies.

But get on any flight in the country, and I absolutely promise you that you will find someone who, in the face of all that incredible achievement, will be willing to complain about the drinks.

The drinks, people.
The last thing the twenty-first century wants to admit is that it might not know everything.
