it was a bit of a slog this one. I have going to give these books a rest as i think I have overdosed and stopped appreciating them. ( )
  Felicity-Smith | May 29, 2016 |
Loved it. Harry is so likeable. Flawed and susceptible but still hanging in, even with the burden of the mantle of Winter Knight.

There were a few surprises, some things were resolved, but of course many more questions arose.

Jim Butcher is very readable, I find his imagery wonderful and the flow of his writing is awesome.

I have ordered the next book in the series and look forward to reading it. ( )

Fourteenth of the fifteen book series; I'm going to miss Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden and his cohorts - a lot!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ( )

Liked this one much better than the last one! Harry is back and of course instantly in trouble. New person in his life, Sarissa, that helped with his physical therapy. He reconnects with Thomas, Molly, Butters, Mac, and of course Kerrin. He also has to learn how to use the Winter Knight's mantle and save Chicago from going up 'like Mt St. Helen's'. We got to see Mouse, but where's Monster? ( )

Book description
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 ab out 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, no matter who she wants him to kill.

Guess which 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 take out the entire midwest if not stopped.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, dodge the Great Hunt, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, kill an immortal or 20, 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.
Haiku summary
Hottie wizard dies,
Comes back stronger than before;
