RT Rating

The 11th book in Butcher's bestselling Dresden Files is a solid entry. Harry is, as usual, a likable protagonist prone to digging himself deeper into trouble by way of his smart mouth. Luckily, he backs it up with a canny intelligence and more than sufficient magical chops.

Harry Dresden has made it one of his life goals to keep out of sight of the White Council, so when Morgan -- his chief persecutor among the wardens
-- shows up on his doorstep accused of treason, Harry has one heck of a task ahead of him: clear Morgan's name, hide him from the wardens and figure out who did commit treason. And do all this while avoiding accusations of treachery on his own, of course. Harry does his best to save Morgan and find the true villain, but even if he succeeds it may be too little, too late for them both. (ROC, Apr., 432 pp., $25.95)

Veteran Warden Morgan has been accused of the murder of the Senior White Council member. He's on the run and has turned to his arch enemy, Harry Dresden, to clear his name. Harry believes Morgan has been framed, so he hides him while trying to uncover a traitor within the Council and make sure he doesn't come under scrutiny himself.

This was another enjoyable addition to the Dresden Files. With the help of Butters, Molly, Thomas, Murphy, and Mouse, Harry has 72 hours to discover the link between the White Council and the White Court of Vampires, stop a small time necromancer from calling up an army of supernatural zombies, and fight against a skinwalker who just won't leave him alone. Great action with a good mystery. My rating: 5 Stars.
