WoW [37] Cold Days - Jim Butcher

Title: Cold Days
Author: Jim Butcher
Series: The Dresden Files #14

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.


Why I am waiting:
I've read the first 5 or so books in this series and absolutely love it! I have most of the others but haven't been able to read them yet. 

What book are you eagerly waiting on?

  1. I felt the Dresden Files had turned a corner in the last one. IF you pardon the pun, breathe new life into the series.

    I am looking forward to this one as, well, Book 1 of the "New Dresden Files".

    Of course my ardent wish is for a Dresden Files/Hallows crossover because lets be honest. It's better to put Rachel and Harry together rather than screw up two other relationships!

    1. Timothy, I think you're a man after my heart. I agree, it would be awesome to have Rachel and Harry interact. That would save a lot of people heartbreak/death/etc if they were an item.

      I really need to catch up on the series, I think I have all the books (maybe one missing) just need the time to read them. Loved what I've read so far though!!

    2. I have read them all and I enjoyed them all. There was some feeling of redundancy and "haven't we done this plot before?" But that all changed with the last two books. (3 if you count Side Jobs, or 4 if count this one).

      I think I think this about Harry and Rachel since I usually read a Dresden Files book and a Hallows book about the same time and I was going back and forth between them both for a long time.
      Still. It would be fun.

    3. That's great to hear that the plot is changed up on the most recent books. I was slightly worried about it being similar throughout the series since I noticed it while reading 1-5 back to back.
