There's plenty to like in this most recent volume in the Dresden Files. Harry continues to be a complex character who marches to his own drummer -- sometimes successfully, sometimes not. The secondary characters continue to be wonderful, especially Molly, Murphy and Sanya. And fans of Mouse will be delighted with his role in this volume. Some readers may find the climax somewhat problematic -- this reviewer did -- but with luck, the issue will be addressed in future volumes.
Changes are afoot for Harry Dresden. After a visit from his old flame Susan Rodriguez, Harry is caught up in a sequence of events that will likely change him for good -- because Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court vampires, has taken something from Harry that he didn't even know he had: his child. In order to save his child, Harry will do whatever it takes -- even if it costs him everything. (ROC, Apr., 448 pp., $25.95)
