REVIEW:
For me, its been a while since I have been lucky enough to return to the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Dresden with the smart ass sense of humour of Butcher brings chaos, combat and of course combustion as everything is thrown into the mix.

OK, so this isn't a brand new full Harry Dresden full novel, but a collection of short stories, but as a reader, I love these departures as idea's are explored, adventures are had and the whole thing up into manageable chunks for journeys or lunch breaks. 

Here within this title readers are treated to 11 short stories that have been published in various anthologies before  and one brand new novella.)  Its a great addition for any fan and with it being a hardback means that it'll survive multiple rereads.  All round i had a ton of fun with this book and its a great stop gap while I wait for Harry's next big adventure.  Cracking.
