Cold Days is another Dresden Files book. If you don’t know what that is you’ve either had your head buried in a hole somewhere or just have zero tolerance for urban fantasy. In either case you should probably do something about that since the Dresden Files is one of the most consistently entertaining series in fantasy today. Truth be told my most major complaint about a book starring Harry Dresden is that it ends and that Jim Butcher should write faster. This sort of complain isn’t really fair to Jim Butcher who has put out one book every six months for many many years.
