No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment

Ever since his girlfriend left town to deal with her newly acquired taste for blood, Harry Dresden has been down and out in Chicago. He can't pay his rent. He's alienating his friends. He can't even recall the last time he took a shower.

The only professional wizard in the phone book has become a desperate man.

And just when it seems things can't get any worse, in saunters the Winter Queen of Faerie. She has an offer Harry can't refuse if he wants to free himself of the supernatural hold his faerie godmother has over him--and hopefully end his run of bad luck. All he has to do is find out who murdered the Summer Queen's right-hand man, the Summer Knight, and clear the Winter Queen's name.

It seems simple enough, but Harry knows better than to get caught in the middle of faerie politics. Until he finds out that the fate of the entire world rests on his solving this case. No pressure or anything...

Harry Dresden is having a really bad go of it. His girlfriend has left him to deal with her new life, the white council want his hide, he is so down that he hasn’t cared to much about his up keep and he is about to loose his business.  What else can happen?

Well, Queen of Winter Court, Mab, is requesting Harry Dresden’s help, but he turns her down. Then when he has to go up in front of the White Council and finds out how much trouble he is in, maybe helping the fairie isn’t all that bad, especially when now he really has no choice.

Someone has killed the Summer Knight and Mab is being blamed for it but she swears that she didn’t do it. So it’s up to Harry Dresden and the few friends that he actually has to solve the case. He really doesn’t want to get involved in fairy politics and he knows this case is not going go well but what choice does he really have.

He old flame that he thought was dead turns up alive and Elaine helps him get into fairie court to talk mother Summer and mother Winter to try and find out who killed the Summer Knight. He also needs to know who stole his mantel and Harry knows that if he doesn’t get it back it can cause a war between the fairie courts.

While he is in the never never things are getting bad in Chicago as the fairies don’t care if humans get hurt when they are at war. Harry has to put a stop to the war  that is brewing and finally gets a tiny bit of help from someone in the white council.

I think of the four books I have listened to so far in this series that this one has been my favorite. Harry has really got himself into some trouble but it was really fun listening to him get out of trouble and the pixies, I loved the pizza obsessed pixies!! I can’t wait to see what sort of trouble Harry get’s into next! Grab these books if you haven’t already read this series!!!

Narrator: James Marster

James Marster just gets better and better with each book. He is starting to branch out a bit more with his voices and he had me laughing so hard with his pixie voices!! That was by far the best part out of the book..lol.  I am so enjoying listening to him and it is nice having his voice in my ears.

    I love Harry Dresden! And you’ve convinced me I need the audiobooks now, too 🙂 Maybe I’ll start with the 4th one, though, since there are so many – especially if you feel the narrator was not as good in the prior books as he was in this one.
    Thanks for the great review, Stormi 🙂 Happy reading!
