The title says it all, really. After eleven books of establishing Harry Dresden's life and world, in this one novel Butcher rips it all away, ready to start again. It's excellent timing. While I've enjoyed the series, familiarity necessarily breeds contempt. Opening with the discovery that Dresden has a child he never knew about, who's in horrible danger, the novel delivers blow upon blow to the main character, driving him to desperate lengths in the race to save his daughter. In doing so, he makes choices he would once have abhorred, but it's clear that he's prepared to sacrifice anything and everything to save his girl. And he does. The final pages show just what he's given up, and present the reader with the first cliffhanger in the history of the series.
