Join our new mailing list and follow @jimbutchernews on twitter to ensure you don’t miss a moment in our 20th Anniversary celebration! Check the announcement post to catch up on prior Drops.

This week’s Dresden Drop: The official series reread has begun with Storm Front! Join us on Goodreads for an epic undertaking as we reread and discuss all 15 published novels, then take on the 16th! The schedule:

  • #1, Storm Front: 1/13 – 26
  • #2, Fool Moon: 1/27 – 2/9 (now on sale for $1.99! See below)
  • #3, Grave Peril: 2/10 – 23
  • #4, Summer Knight: 2/24 – 3/8
  • #5, Death Masks: 3/9 – 22
  • #6, Blood Rites: 3/23 – 4/5

  • #8, Proven Guilty: 4/20 – 5/3
  • #9, White Night: 5/4 – 17
  • #10, Small Favor: 5/18 – 31
  • #11, Turn Coat: 6/1 – 14
  • #12, Changes: 6/15 – 28
  • #13, Ghost Story: 6/29 – 7/12
  • #14, Cold Days: 7/13 – 26 (Peace Talks out 7/14th!)
  • #15, Skin Game: 7/27 – 8/9
  • #16, Peace Talks: 8/10 – 31

(Note: This schedule may seem counter-intuitive, as Peace Talks comes out just as we’re diving into Cold Days. The advantage is that it gives all fans the opportunity to read and digest Peace Talks before diving into group discussion four weeks later–we know not everyone is going to be able to devour the book the week it’s out! You’ll definitely want to read ahead on your own and make sure you’re caught up before reading the new release.)

EDIT: The schedule has been changed in response to reader feedback!

The eagerly awaited new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series.


After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad. Because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard.

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill.

Guess which Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own…

His soul.

To be released in hardcover from Roc publishing, November 27, 2012.
