Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Philip Marlowe.” Entertainment Weekly
“Poor Harry just can’t seem to catch a break as Queen Mab decides to use him as a chess piece in a debt repayment scheme. Much of what makes the Dresden Files so phenomenal and addictive is Butcher’s ability to bring a level of complexity to his stories and characters that always challenges his readers and leaves them guessing. Figuring out the motives and schemes of various individuals keeps this reading experience exhilarating and intense, and Harry’s wise-ass attitude adds a tremendous fun factor.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars Top Pick)
“Butcher brings back wizard Harry Dresden for his fifteenth adventure fighting a rogue’s gallery of supernatural villains…This is urban fantasy par excellence, with magical action, moral dilemmas, and a wonderful cast.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Harry Dresden, having finally succumbed to Mab and become the Winter Knight, is hiding out. The spirit of the island can help keep his debilitating headaches at bay, and keep Mab off his back. She shows up with a job for him—help Nicodemus Archleone steal the Holy Grail from Hades…This should be just what fans of the Dresden Files series would hope for.” Booklist
