HARRY DRESDEN LIVES
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 about 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, and 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 land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.
Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, 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.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-11-09)

Harry Dresden is alive! But despite being returned from death, things aren't looking up for Dresden. He is now the Winter Knight at the beck-and-call of Mab, faerie Queen of Air and Darkness, and she wants him to do the impossible: kill an immortal. Secondly, Demonreach, Harry's getaway island, is under siege from some powerful outside forces and is keeping a dark secret Harry must protect. Fighting enemies new and old, with problems building and time running out, our hero must also battle within himself to keep the Winter mantel from consuming his soul and turning him into a merciless and evil killer.

Verdict: Butcher's latest installment (after Ghost Story) in the "Dresden Files" series will keep readers invested from start to finish with lots of action and an ending that will have them craving the next title. With a colorful cast and laughs throughout, this series will appeal to readers interested in urban fantasy or Kim Harrison's work. Though Butcher's loyal fans will be craving this one, it is relatively easy for anyone to pick up and start the series with this book.

Book description

HARRY DRESDEN LIVES!!!

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 about 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, and 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 land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 6reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent book in the Harry Dresden series If you are a "Harry" fan you will just love this continuing story of the wizard from Chicago and beyond. I also highly recommend buying from walmart.com as they ship exceeding fast and package the product very well. Will be doing more business with them in the future. 11/30/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Read! Cold Days was by far a great read typical of earlier work. Funny, smart, full of action and suspense. Better read in order but could work as a stand-alone read. 12/10/2012
