Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR
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... but he doesn't know the half of it. Skin Game (Roc) is the 15th installment in Jim Butcher's acclaimed and bestselling Dresden Files series.
Woo hoo! Jim does it again. This Butcher only serves up prime cuts.
Synopses & Reviews
The eagerly awaited new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series.
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...
"Butcher's 13th supernatural crime novel featuring Chicago-based wizard Harry Dresden (after 2010's Changes) is less accessible to newcomers than many of its predecessors, though longtime fans will be gratified. The current volume opens with Dresden in a limbo-like state, after 'a long, long day, battling the forces of evil, destroying the Red Court utterly, rescuing my daughter and murdering her mother — oh, and getting shot to death.' Police captain Collin J. Murphy, the late father of Dresden's longtime ally Karrin, explains that an 'irregularity' with Dresden's death requires him to go back to Chicago to solve his own murder. Dresden obligingly returns to the world he'd just left, experiencing a steep learning curve as he adjusts to his incorporeal state. The usual plot twists and high-stakes combat with an assortment of supernatural beings ought to hold Butcher's fans for another year. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
