Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day. 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.
This time, it's worse than that. Mab's involved Harry in a smash-and-grab heist run by one of his most despised enemies, to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure horde in the world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the Underworld.
Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess - assuming his own allies don't end up killing him before his enemies get the chance....

A Dresden file that delivers!
Yes I would, James Marsters performance has never been better, especially with the production values on this book, he transition from steady narration to screams and shouts that are alternatively dramatic and intentional comedic gold.
As with most Dresden stories, there's a hook, a reveal and several moments of true white knuckle peril for the characters, Marsters delivers on all of them. I'm not going into specifics because I feel fellow fans don't want spoilers
Dresden and Goodman Gray are particular well played
The Devil you know can be just as bad...
A long running series like this runs a high high risk of becoming stale and repetitive and while there are without doubt formulaic frameworks to the stories, book 15 continues to entertain and impress, characters are not static or two dimensional and have developed over the entire series. Butcher is a master of torturing his characters and bringing them through the hardship stronger, better people in a solid believable fashion. He continues to go from strength to strength with the Dresden Files.

I will I find I miss some bits and enjoy finding the nooks and crannies of a good story. I will also buy the hardback copy of this book too.
Faith Hunters, Jane Yellowrock series. Kim Harrison The Hollows series. The Iron Druid series but I prefer to read, rather than listen to that series.
He sounds right to my ears his voice is right I noticed that Bob for example now sounds mores like Butters than Dresden which seems appropriate.
