Harry, Harry, Harry, he is faced with death by the Red Court, Chased by some really evil demons, the love of his life back, the shroud and losing a friend. This story was so incredibly good i was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole tale. ( )

Challenged to a duel to the death by a vampire of the Red Court, Harry is also trying to deal with some of the most dangerous opponents of his career and trying to save the world (again) while facing the impossibility of his love for Susan Rodriguez. ( )

I continue to really like this series and look forward to where it will lead in the future. ( )

Harry Dresden is back in this novel full of non-stop action. Not only is Harry dealing with the war with the Red Court Vampires, but some bodies have shown up that have been killed by a force stronger than anything he has ever faced. Throw in Susan showing up again and a missing religious artifact and you have a book that barely gives Harry or the reader time to catch their breath. The multiple story lines and non-stop action left me a little dizzy and confused at times. However, I was impressed with how Butcher was able develop more depth to some of the peripheral characters amidst all of the action. That is what keeps me coming back to the series and looking forward to the next book. ( )
