Harry Dresden forgot his own golden rule: magic - it can get a guy killed. Which didn’t help when he clashed with unknown assailants intent on his murder. And though Harry’s continued existence is now in some doubt, this doesn’t mean Chicago’s resident professional wizard can rest in peace. Trapped in a realm that is not quite here, yet not quite anywhere else, Harry learns that three of his loved ones are in mortal danger. Only by discovering his assailant’s identity can he save his friends, bring criminal elements to justice, and move on before he becomes trapped in his own unending nightmare. It would just be easier if he knew which friends were at risk. And had a (working) crystal ball. And had access to his magic. Instead, he is unable to interact with the physical world - invisible and inaudible to all but the most specialized of magical talents. He’s also far from the only silent presence roaming Chicago’s alleys. Heck, he put some of them there himself. Only now, they’re looking for payback.

Sounds fucking epic! Now I don’t have to sit on that cliffhanger that Butcher threw in Changes ;D.

--------------->!!!!!!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!<----------- Do NOT read if you intend on finding out the ending of the book by youself!!

A widely asked question from those who have read Changes but not Ghost Story is “Does Harry Dresden come back to life?" or “Did Harry Dresden really die?" Well here it is folks, Harry Dresden returns! He reenters Chicago as a ghost on a mission to discover who killed him that fateful day on which he killed the entire Red court but was shot on the Water Beetle afterwards. Harry later discovers in his adventure that he is actually not a ghost but his own soul walking the Earth. After emerging triumphant from this books conflict he once again encounters Uriel the archangel who shows him how Harry was manipulated by a Fallen Angel to order Kincaid to kill Harry, as he was made to believe that it was the only way to free himself from Mabs grasp so she would not change him and cause him to hurt his loved ones. Uriel then tells him that he must choose to spend life in a version of purgatory or to take the second path where Harry’s destination would be unknown, but at the last moment Uriel confirms that Harry is not truly dead as every soul needs a body. Harry then awakens in his original, human body to find himself on deamonreach where Mab and the genus loci have saved him. He then takes control of himself and tells Mab that though he may be her knight that he will choose his actions for himself and that Mab cannot change him.

Thank you. I am 100 pages into this book and furious. I couldn’t see where the story was going or how to bring Harry back to life after 6 months of being dead. I had no idea how much of myself I had invested in these books.
