Waiting on...COLD DAYS by Jim Butcher

Oh, Harry, Harry, Harry. How did you get yourself in such a fix? Enslaved to the Queen of Air and Darkness, forced to do her bidding forever? I was really hoping when you got murdered and came back that you'd have weaseled your way out of that terrible deal you made. But things can't be that easy, can they? *sigh* And your cover's not really doing much for me, though it looks like all the others. But you know I'm going to buy this book no matter what so I guess it doesn't really matter if it appeals. Of course, actually putting it on Amazon and IndieBound so I can pre-order it would really help.

Urban Fantasy Awesomeness
?? pages, hardcover
Expected publication: November 27, 2012
Publisher: Penguin Group

After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad. Because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard.

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill.

Guess which Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own…

His soul.

(Nooooo! Not his soul!)

    1. Try him...you might like him. But you can't have him because he's mine and Felicia the Geeky Blogger's (well, until our girl fight that'll decide his fate).
