This is the tenth book in the Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher.
No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.
An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness-and she's calling in her marker. It's a small favor he can't refuse...one that will trap Harry Dresden between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and one that will strain his skills-and loyalties-to their very limits.
It figures. Everything was going too well to last...
It always amazes me the trouble that Harry gets himself mixed up with - seemingly by accident. He just hangs out, doing his own thing and wham - things start trying to kill him.
What is even more amazing is how Harry gets himself out of that trouble alive (well, more alive than dead - but it was close a time or two).
I love this series. I watched the short lived sci/fi series and thought it was pretty good as well - now when I read the books, I picture Harry as that actor from the show. Nice visual. :)
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
