Dresden Files 04 Summer Knight     Summer Knight  by Jim Butcher

‘The Dresden Files’ series Book #4

Mass Market Paperback: 371 pages Publisher: Roc (September 3, 2002) Language: English ISBN-10: 0451458923 ISBN-13: 978-0451458926

Ever since his girlfriend left town to deal with her newly acquired taste for blood, Harry Dresden has been down and out in Chicago. He can’t pay his rent. He’s alienating his friends. He can’t even recall the last time he took a shower.

The only professional wizard in the phone book has become a desperate man.

And just when it seems things can’t get any worse, in saunters the Winter Queen of Faerie. She has an offer Harry can’t refuse if he wants to free himself of the supernatural hold his faerie godmother has over him — and hopefully end his run of bad luck. All he has to do is find out who murdered the Summer Queen’s right-hand man, the Summer Knight, and clear the Winter Queen’s name.

It seems simple enough, but Harry knows better than to get caught in the middle of faerie politics. Until he finds out that the fate of the entire world rests on his solving this case.

No pressure or anything…

Review: Another awesome book in the series!

No matter what, you’ll never read another character like Harry Dresden. The poor man always seems to find himself up the proverbial creek without meaning to be. He tries to help and gets crapped on.

There were twists in this one that I liked, something I never saw coming, just as Harry didn’t. Some of the same characters, ones you can roll your eyes at. Some new that are both likable and unlikable and some that surprise you. I wonder if Morgan will ever give Harry a break.

Lots of action, mystery. I adore the originality of The Dresden Files, and hope they will be around for a long, long time.
