Another excellent addition to the series
on 29 January 2013
Butcher writes an amazingly complex and intriguing series and Cold Days was no disappointment.
Following on from Ghost Story, the book delves into the Winter court and Mab's plans for the main character, Harry Dresden. The previous book saw many questions raised, and though some are answered, there were a few that were not. Our hero is taken from death and brought into the world of being the Winter Knight, fraught with danger and misery.
In the course of the book, we meet with old friends, old enemies and get a tantalising glimpse of the enemies Dresden will have to face eventually. We learn more about the Winter court, Bob the skull and Mab's animosity, Demonreach, the Gatekeeper, Molly and even some secrets about Dresden himself; with the hint of something special on its way.
Although it's understandable why Dresden would not go and see her, face to face, it was still disappointing that the reunion was delayed for another book; those of you who know Ghost Story will probably understand who I mean.
High on action, wit and sarcasm, the latest Dresden Files will leave you begging for more... looks like you'll have to wait with the rest of us.
