The last Dresden novel before this one, Changes, changed everything in the series. Though I am sure that there are spoilers galore here, I'm not going to do that. Let me just say that this is a vey good book that is well worth reading -- after the other books in the series.

So instead I'll let Jim Butcher and Harry Dresden do the talking...

“One of the things a lot of people don’t understand about magic is that the rules of how it works aren’t hard- and- fast; they’re fluid, changing with time, with the seasons, with location, and with the intent of the practitioner. Magic isn’t alive in the sense of a corporeal, sentient being, but it does have a kind of anima all its own. It grows, swells, wanes, and changes.” (p.125)

Maybe I should make it my new slogan: Harry Dresden – I take responsibility for more impossible situations in the first twenty- four hours of being dead than most people do all day.” (p.144)
