The plot is actually incredibly simple- Harry's old flame/now vampire(ish) Susan Rodriguez shows up at his door and tells him that not only do they have a daughter, but she has been stolen by the Red Court to be sacrificed in a ritual that will kill Harry's entire bloodline. Woah.
The rest of the book is basically Harry being really angry and trying to recruit anyone and everyone to help him rescue her. The middle of the book did kind of feel like a giant (and somewhat forced) reunion of characters. Some of the cameos worked, some not so much. Harry also makes some decisions that you (and he) knows will come back to bite him, but he has to make because saving his daughter is more important than anything else. It's Harry at his most heroic, and most morally grey.
It all leads up to easily the most explosive and epic ending in Dresden history. I was riveted the entire time. And after all of that is through, and you think Butcher will at least give you a satisfying, if bittersweet, ending, he pulls the rug out from under you with the biggest cliffhanger ending yet.
Ugh. I'm exhausted from this book.
Now where's Book 13?!?!
A former lover suddenly reappears into Harry Dresden's life with a problem only he can help solve. Susan Rodriguez and Dresden were involved many years ago. Their relationship ended abruptly when Susan was attacked by the Red Court vampires. She has since lived in a half-vampire state, fighting between her humanity and her bloodlust. Should she take a life and feed on the blood, she will become a full fledged Red Court vampire. She has been fighting the good fight against the vampires with other half breeds, but now her daughter has been kidnapped. It seems Arianna Ortega, Duchess if the Red Court, has discovered Susan's secret and is exploiting it to take her revenge on those who have wronged her in the past. Susan needs Dresden to help her find the missing child and remove her from the clutches of the Red Court. Dresden will be pushed to the limit and will make choices he normally would avoid in other situations because this time he's not just fighting for himself or to save the world, he's fighting to save an innocent little girl, Susan's daughter...and his own.
I really enjoyed this book. I love Dresden's wit and quips and the sources that Butcher draws on for thise. this book references Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and The Wizard of Oz...what's not to enjoy? :) Instead of continuing on where the last book left off, it sort of side stepped into a whole other story that wasn't expected. We get to learn more about Dresden's history and get a look into what really drives him...the choices he will make for those he loves. I'm definitely looking forward to where his next journey will take him...ghosts and interactions with the Winter Court.
Some good quotes:
"The headquarters of the White Council of wizards is a dull, dim, drafty sort of place - not unlike the insides of the heads of a great many people that work there."
"The White Council never does anything quickly, and I had a bad feeling that tempus was fugiting quickly."
""You're a goog man, Harry." ... "Not always rational, ... But you're the best kind of crazy.""
"There is, I think, humor here which does not translate well from English into sanity."
""He's Black Council"... "Or maybe stupid." ... "Not sure which is scarier." ... "Stupid, Hoss. Every time. Only so many blackhearted villains in the world, and they only get uppity on occasion. Stupid's everywhere, every day."
