Review of Jim Butcher's Cold Days

The Dresden Files: Book 14
By Jim Butcher

Star Rating: 

Genre: Adult Fantasy
Number of Pages: 640

Synopsis:(From Amazon)
After being murdered and then brought back to life, Harry Dresden soon realizes that maybe death wasn't all that bad.  Because he is no longer Chicago's only professional wizard.

He is now Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness.  Her word is his command.  And her first command is the seemingly impossible: kill an immortal.  Worse still, there is a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could mean the deaths of millions.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent an apocalypse, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his new found infinite powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own...

His soul.

All in all, this is just another day in the life of Harry Dresden!  Harry has to try to follow his commands all while figuring out a case of his own, involving Demonreach, and trying to find more information about whether or not he should follow threw with Mab's request.  While he may technically serve Mab, Dresden works hard to keep his own morals intact.

Book 14 gives you a taste of exactly what Harry's life may be like, now that he is the Winter Knight.  Read book 15 for more amazing adventures!
