This one is my favorite so far. It kept me on the edge of my sit the whole time.
The world building was excellent, and it was interesting to finally meet the white council and the various other characters that hadn't made an appearance so far.

Upon reread, I must say, it holds up so well! It's still an awesome, fun ride and knowing the answer to the mystery doesn't detract from it at all. ( )

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. ( )

It's been a while since I'd last read one of the Dresden Files books, and it's good to return to them. So much fun, and James Marsters' reading is awesome. ( )

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.
