“Butcher is the dean of contemporary urban fantasy.”—Booklist Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. . He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains—led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone—to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever. It's a smash and grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world—which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he's dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry. Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess—assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance…

Harry spent the time learning more about his new jo...

5.0 Skin Game by Jim Butcher
Note: I feel that Death Masks, Book 5, is where reading this series out of order starts to do you an injustice. This book does work as a stand alone to some extent, but you will get major spoilers for the previous books in the series and it also pulls in characters we have met before. So I recommend...

Butcher writes the character of Harry Dresden so well he could have him on a shopping trip to the local grocery store and it would be entertaining reading. What makes volume after volume of The Dresden Files so impressive is he places Harry in a fantastic world of reality meets supernatural, with en...

4.5 Skin Game (Dresden Files #15) (Audiobook)
4.5 stars What do you mean I have to wait for the next one? Harry's still working for the bad guys, but at least he's being himself again. He's got another assignment from Mab, and just like all her other jobs, it's not how it seems at first glance, or even second or third glance (Harry was alwa...

5.0 Skin Game: A Novel of the Dresden Files
Harry starts to remind me of Star Trek Voyager. You know, the star ship that got shot to pieces in just about every episode and then magically repaired for the next episode. Quite frankly I am getting a bit tired of this. In this instalment he keeps coming, whacking bad guys left right and center, g...
