By: Jim Butcher
Publication Date: April 5, 2011 :( Ugh so long to wait!
When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn’t doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn’t stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own.
To save his friends—and his own soul—Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic...
This is the 13th book in the series.
Yes Yes YES!!!! Oh man, Jim Butcher never fails to bring on a good story. NEVER. Don't you just love the cover? I know I do. You probably can't see it, but if you click the picture you'll notice that the tombstone has Harry Dresden's name on it. Creepy? Hell yes!
Harry Dresden is definitely one of my most favorite book characters. He's witty, sarcastic, smart, loyal, and well, as far as I'm concerned, Hot as Hell!
Just a few things I'd like to mention...My first gripe...is to the artist of the cover art. What's with the hat? Seriously, Dresden does not wear a hat! Stop it with the hat thing on every cover!!
Also, this newest cover is a slight improvement, but can't Dresden do something else besides carrying his stick and wearing that dumb hat?
My second gripe goes out to ROC Fantasy publishing.
Who's stupid ass idea was it to make the newest paperbacks half and inch taller? WTF Do you know how stupid this looks next to all my normal sized books? Not to mention they feel flimsy as hell.
Alas, I shall be a fangirl till the end <3
What are you waiting for?? :D
