Small Favor by Jim Butcher

Beware of small favors. Harry Dresden discover how true that homily really turns out to be when Mab (Winter Queen) calls in a small favor. Harry must rescue someone he despises while facing not one but two sets of implacable foes.
Once again Harry surrounds himself with his stalwart co-horts. Michaels with his blessed sword, Murphy with her tiny but feisty will, Thomas his secret vampire brother and Luccio his superior in the Wardens all spend a great deal of effort, time and blood to pull Harry’s butt out of the line of fire.

I always enjoy the morality plays that Butcher weaves throughout his astoundingly entertaining stories. You have just despicable villains that Harry successfully shows in a gray not black light. Butcher also shows how character trumps muscle in so many ways. One of the many things you have to commend Butcher on it his sense of irony, you are never really sure who is really on Harry Dresden’s side.

I highly recommend the entire series. You will be seeing more as I have finally purchased all the ones that have currently been printed.
