From Jim Butcher comes the newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files...

Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day. Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful.

Mab has traded Harry’s skills to pay off a debt. And now he must help a group of villains led by Harry’s most despised enemy, Nicodemus Archleone, to break into a high-security vault so that they can then access a vault in the Nevernever.

Problem is, the vault belongs to Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld. And Dresden is dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Dresden’s always been tricky, but he’s going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess.…

    I am a huge fan of the Dresden files, and this book was on point, classic Harry. It's one of the best ones he's written, and I was enthralled (no pun intended) from start to finish - fast paced, brilliant twists, magical thrill ride with a bit of criminal mystery thrown in. The stakes were high and the explosions enormous, but one of the reasons I like this installment of the series in particular was the fact that while it was a classic Dresden feat of saving the world from destruction, it felt lighter than some of the recent books, and that made the ride exceptionally thrilling and fun. A must for any fantasy/thriller enthusiast. Parkour!

    This series has always been my favorite for at least 3 reasons. 1) GREAT WRITING! 2) amazingly interesting characters. And 3) the references! A wonderfully cleaver addition to prime urban fantasy. PARKOUR!

    I can never get enough Harry Dresden. Each book gets better and better. This book just shows that he has a lot of stories still to tell. I can't wait to see what else Mab has in store for Harry! There is so much going on right now that Jim butcher will have to write 50 more books. At least.

    Let's face it, if you've made it this far in the series, you're going to read this. This is one of the better books in my opinion and Butcher does a lot to keep the action moving and the reader guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed the change of direction from detective novel to heist novel.
  • There is no try...

    By BearInStPete
    Full of the kind of groaning references and crazy plot twists that Dresden fans live for. A pleasure to read, with some uplifting moments. I laughed. I cried. A great read! I had trouble putting it down.

    I've been along for the ride from the beginning. This particular tale left me both elated and saddened. Elated for obvious reasons but saddened because I must wait another year for the next installment of Harry's trek through the labyrinth of magical skulduggery. Write faster, master Butcher. Your audience awaits impatiently. BJS
  • Jim Butcher Does it Again With Skin Game

    By Ozzman420x
    Brilliant, hilarious, intense, heartwarming, and amazing just like all the books before Skin Game and all the books that will follow. Harry Dresden is Spider-Man, Indian jones, Rudy, Sherlock Holmes, and Gandalf combined. What other books have Santa Claus (aka Odin), Hades, and a skin walker? If you love fantasy, mythology, and comedies look no further. Thank you Jim Butcher for giving me a break from the weight of the world and for all the life lessons I have learned from your books. I will preorder your next book as soon as it is available. Please keep writing more Dresden Files!!!
  • Harry is back!
