Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The fast-paced and compelling 12th book in Butcher's bestselling series (after 2009's Turn Coat) is aptly titled. Beginning with the revelation that wizard detective Harry Dresden has a daughter, Butcher throws one high-stakes curveball after another at his hero. Harry's ex-girlfriend, Susan Rodriguez, discloses young Maggie's existence after vampire Red Court duchess Arianna Ortega kidnaps the child. Ortega holds Harry responsible for the death of her husband and is planning to offer Maggie as a human sacrifice. With a fragile peace in place between the Red Court and the White Council of wizards, Harry is unable to count on them for support in his rescue mission, and he must compromise almost everything he believes in to save his daughter. Butcher is deft at relieving some of the tension and grimness with bursts of gallows humor that keep readers coming back for more. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

This excellent 12th entry in Butcher's (www.jim-butcher.com) No. 1 New York Times best-selling "Dresden Files" series-following Turn Coat (2009), also available from Recorded Books/Penguin Audio-shows the author's continuing ability to keep readers and listeners up way past midnight. Here, Dresden goes up against the Red Court of Vampires to save a child whom he has never met: his own. Actor/series narrator James Marsters (www.jamesmarsterslive.com) delivers his usual pitch-perfect performance, personifying Dresden and mastering all sorts of creatures with the enthusiasm his listeners have come to expect. Catch up on the latest from Chicago's only consulting wizard; highly recommended.-Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ. Lib., Russellville (c) Copyright 2010.
