THE New York Times Bestseller Harry Dresden’s life finally seems to be calming down until a shadow from the past returns. Mab, monarch of the Sidhe Winter Court, calls in an old favor from Harry, one small favor that will trap him between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and that will strain his skills, and loyalties to their very limits.
Holy crap! This book was frikkin’ insane!
Harry’s got himself in a pickle this time! We’ve got Summer and Winter, some old foes, and a heck of cast taking up the pages of this installment. Again, my reviews of Butcher’s books will be short and sweet as I can’t say much without giving away spoilers.
I’ve found that Butcher’s books range from fast paced to warp speed. This book was one of the warp speed ones. Something was always happening. It was tense and even threw a punch to the gut toward the end. I couldn’t find a spot to put it down because the amount of fighting in this book is just insane. I. Loved. It! Books like this make everything else seem soooooooo slow, though. And it’s why I sometimes say one of Butcher’s books is slower compared to his others. That also means that the book I’m currently reading is suffering because of Butcher. What probably isn’t that slow of a book just feels slow.
There were some great creatures in this book straight from the Fae. I’ll just say Tiny was awesome! And the fight scenes were incredible with loads of tension. I love it when I can put myself in an action scene, and Butcher made it so. There’s a lot going on in this book, a lot of side roads. I wasn’t trying to figure out what was happening because there were so many players. I just read and was never disappointed.
So overall, yet another great Butcher book.
