Cold Days Review
Author: Jim Butcher
Series: Dresden Files #14
Genre: Detective, Private Investigator, Urban Fantasy, Wizards, Faeries, Demons, Vampires
Before I get into my review, I was very happy that James Marster is back narrating for Jim Butcher and for the rest of the upcoming Dresden Files books (barring any scheduling conflicts..again).
Cold Days is the much awaited continuation to this great series and it started when we left off the final moments of Ghost Story. As we all know Harry has officially become the Winter Knight and Mab didn't waste time "training" his new tool to the best of her abilities. When all said and done with his training, Harry received his first official order from Mab: To kill an immortal named (Oops!, sorry spoiler alert).
The Cold Days by impression is like Summer Knight and Small Favor combined with all the conspiracies, drama and of course the overload of sarcasms and dark humor (which we can expect from a Harry Dresden book).
Overall Cold Days has surpassed Small Favor as my 2nd best Dresden Files book (behind only to Changes) however this might be a short-lived ranking as book 15 would be coming up and as with the trend we expect the return of Nicodemus and the rest of the Blackened Denarians (who will probably ally themselves with the new antagonists (Oops!, sorry spoiler alert again).
