Publisher Description

Wizard for hire Harry Dresden has to track down the things that go bump in the night in this novel in Jim Butcher's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

There’s no love lost between Harry Dresden, the only wizard in the Chicago phone book, and the White Council of Wizards, who find him brash and undisciplined. But war with the vampires has thinned their ranks, so the Council has drafted Harry as a Warden and assigned him to look into rumors of black magic in the Windy City.

As Harry adjusts to his new role, another problem arrives in the form of the tattooed and pierced daughter of an old friend—all grown up and already in trouble. Her boyfriend is the only suspect in what looks like a supernatural assault straight out of a horror film. Malevolent entities that feed on fear are loose in Chicago, but it’s all in a day’s work for a wizard, his faithful dog, and a talking skull named Bob...

Wondrously entertaining!

Fabulously entertaining. Much tongue-in-cheek humor and an exceptionally well thought out plot.

The Magic is Still There

Butcher's Dresden Files novels are always a treat. Loaded with all the action of a summer blockbuster, Jim also manages to fill his works with LOL humor, and that's something I can't say about too many authors. This book is definitely on my favorites list. Hard times for Harry always ends in good reads for me.
Oh, and while the storyline is largely standalone, there's continuing plot lines and recurring characters from previous novels in here that might spoil past events for new readers. If you're new to Dresden, you're looking for Storm Front, Jim's(and Harry's) explosive, hilarious debut.
