The new novel in the New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series.

No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness-and she's calling in her marker. It's a small favor he can't refuse...one that will trap Harry Dresden between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and one that will strain his skills- and loyalties-to their very limits.

It figures. Everything was going too well to last...

Baker & Taylor

Dresden Files Book 10

Jim Butcher has reached full stride with his Dresden series and Small Favor displays all the elements that make the series hugely entertaining; an understated title, good mystery, balanced blend of the occult and real world, truly evil bad guys/gals, strong friendships and human weaknesses among the good guys/gals, and Dresden’s decency and wise-cracking ways. It even foreshadows the action in Turn Coat. The humour is ever present as not only does Dresden have to fight truly evil demons but he also has to battle the Billy Goats Gruff. Small Favor is a top notch entry in a fun series.

Dresden books are witty, engaging, and never fail to give you a good page-turner. Reading these books if you're familiar with mythology is especially interesting, seeing a new take on something so classic.

Another one of Butcher's fast-paced, hilarious, and action-packed masterpiece. Highly recommended for any reader that's looking for an automatic page-turner.

I enjoy all of the Dresden novels - dripping with sarcasm and usually a book that I find time to read.

This latest Dresden Files novel is one of the best in the series. Harry finds himself reluctantly involved in a return engagement with the deadliest antagonists he's ever faced, while fighting off the Summer Court's hit-gruffs and experiencing new and unplained powers.
