Product description

From the Inside Flap

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.

He doesn't know the half of it...

Mab has just traded Harry's skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry's most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

It's a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure horde in the supernatural world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he's dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.

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 . . .

From the Back Cover

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P. I.

Turns out the 'everyday' world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans.

That's where Harry comes in.

Queen Mab has traded on Harry's skills to pay off a debt. And now he must help a group of villains led by his most despised enemy, Nicodemus Archleone, break into a vault in the Nevernever.

Problem is, the vault belongs to Hades, Lord of the Underworld. And Dresden is dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this particular heist . . .

MAGIC - IT CAN GET A GUY KILLED.

'Everything I'd hoped for'

Patrick Rothfuss on Skin Game

'Butcher's storytelling is satisfying on a level that's bone deep'

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jim Butcher read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old--

the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight,

he'd added the rest of the Narnia books, the Prydain Chronicles, every

book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels and

the Lord of the Rings to his count.

So he was pretty much doomed from the start.

Love of fantasy, his personal gateway drug, drew him toward a fairly

eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding (including trick riding,

stunt riding, drill riding, and competitive stunt racing), archery,

martial arts, costuming, music and theater. He played a lot of role-

playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and

eventually got into live-action roleplay where players beat each other

up with boffer weapons.

So, really, he can fly his nerd flag with pretty much anyone, and

frequently does.

He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and

horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until,

just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every

piece of her advice; fill out outlines and worksheets, and design

stories and characters just the way she'd been telling him to do for

about three years. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it

produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways.

The result was the Dresden Files, which sure showed *her*.

She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on

writing.

Jim has performed in dramas, musicals, and vocal groups in front of

live audiences of thousands and on TV. He has performed exhibition

riding in multiple arenas, and fallen from running horses a truly

ridiculous number of times. He was once cursed by an Amazon witch

doctor in rural Brazil, has apparently begun writing about himself in

the third person, and is hardly ever sick at sea.

He also writes books occasionally.

Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera.

He's plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one. He lives in

Missouri with his wife, romantic suspense and paranormal romance writer

Shannon K. Butcher (who is really pretty and way out of his league),

his son, and a ferocious guard dog.
