Just finished the book. REALLY liked it, even though I'm worried about Molly. I could see her not handling this and going bad down the road.

Also liked the reveal about Demonreach and I hope we get to get to find out more about the Gatekeeper, who apparently is SO badass, his fake eye has a disguise!

Thinking that the Black Council and Nemesis are two different things. Wonder if He Who Walks Behind is involved in one or both of them?


Sharkface, a.k.a. "He Who Walks Ahead" seems to have some tie to "He Who Walks Behind" from Harry's past. I wonder how many more are out there and if they'll tie into the final trilogy.

Finally, I LOVED the visual of the Hunt, especially with Harry beating (or appearing to beat)Kringle and the Erlking. Kinda Ghost Rider-esque, IMO

I'm surprised Nieto never offered an opinion on this book.

And just when it seems Molly had it together they put up another hurdle.

He Who Walks Behind is an Outsider and it seemed to me Nemesis was part of them as well. Remember when Harry meets up with the Gatekeeper, he was checking the Winter fae that were fighting the Outsiders for Nemesis trying to sneak inside the gate. I think they’re all connected. :smt102

And speaking of the Gatekeeper, I like that they’ve shown how badass the top White Council wizards are. Gatekeeper here, Injun Joe fighting off the shape shifter by himself, and McCoy the one man black ops team.

I found 1st edition hardcovers of Storm Front and Backup today for pennies, and almost just put them on the shelves in the shop for 1/2 cover price. :lol: :lol:

"Hmm, I better check those just in...HOLY FUCK!!"

Here's the synopsis:

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
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 horde 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….


Sounds amazing! I’m worried for Harry, bad things happen whenever Nicodemus shows up. :o :-(

So, it's basically a supernatural heist story?

Exxxxxxcellent...
