Cold Days by Jim Butcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My favorite wizard is back from the dead and ready to save the world with his usual irreverent sense of humor.
Demonreach is under attack and THE WARDEN (Harry Dresden, who else) has to prevent the prisoners from escaping. The attacker known as Nemesis isn't of this World and Nemesis has managed to infect Maeve, hence Mab's order to her Winter Knight (Harry Dresden) to kill her. Unfortunately Maeve had managed to convince Lily (The Summer Lady) that Mab is the one that is infected and that Harry can't be trusted. Lily is working with her to destroy Demonreach but Maeve as usual is willing to turn on allies just as quickly as friends. Thinking that Sarissa (Maeve's sister) is the only vessel on the island capable of assuming the mantel of one of the ladies Maeve kills Lily and Sarissa becomes the Summer Lady, but to late to prevent it Harry realizes there is one other vessel on the island, just as Karrin kills Maeve.
