Harry Dresden lives! After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn't all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness.
After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn't about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill. Guess which one Mab wants first?
Of course, it won't be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.
Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own... his soul.
I listened to Ghost Story and Cold Days by Jim Butcher back to back. I have no regrets. So many cool things my mouth is still agape.
If you love urban fantasy, snark, and nods to fandoms but you haven’t read or listened to the Dresden Files, do yourself a solid and begin them. Honestly, there is so much to love from the humor to the nail-biting moments. Oh, don’t read the synopsis or this review. Spoilers darling!
Harry is back and surprise, surprise, even in death he cannot escape promises made to the Queen of the Winter Sidhe. Oh, and that island with the weird leylines…. bad shit is happening. Yikes! And that my friends is why I devour an eighteen hour audio in three days.
We spend some creepy time in Fairy whilst Harry heals before
The tale that unfolds has battles, confrontations with friends and family, hostages and surprises. Molly has some impressive stuff going on and before it is all said and done, we will ride with the hunt! It isn’t hard to see why Cold Days was a Goodreads Choice Winner. Hells bells it rocked.
James Marsters is the voice of Harry and these characters. He adds an extra level of enjoyment to an already brilliant story.
The ending left me wanting to dive into the next book and so I did. I finished the series in May during the Finish A Series in A Month Challenge
