A direct follow-up to Grave Peril of the series, where Harry is needing to deal with the ramifications of his actions and the war between the vampire's Red Court and the wizards. I was a bit disappointed that this storyline is fairly quickly derailed into politics between the Summer and Winter Courts of the Faeries, but in the end it was a great story so I don't mind so much. These are such quick reads, anyway, since they're pretty difficult to put down, and just so engaging from the very first page.

I really loved the set-up of the Faerie Courts in here. There was a lot of variety in the different characters between the two, and just the structure itself was intriguing. In general Faerie politics are one of my least favorite aspects of the urban fantasy genre, since it seems so many series lack a structure when they go about putting the Fae into play, but Butcher put a whole lot more effort into it than some of the other series I've read, so I wound up enjoying it a whole lot more than expected.

I especially loved Murphy early on in here, where she actually gets to save Harry for once. Unfortunately, there wasn't nearly enough of her, but I do so love their interactions and banter.
