Dusty Pages Review: Skin Game

Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day. As Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it's something awful.
This time, it's worse than that. Mab's involved Harry in a smash-and-grab heist run by one of his most despised enemies, to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure horde in the world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the Underworld.
Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess - assuming his own allies don't end up killing him before his enemies get the chance....

I got this book on audio because I love listening to James Marsters reading them. I enjoyed the story very much. I did get a little lost as some of the side characters I had trouble remembering them because they last appeared some time ago.

I absolutely loved the inclusion of some Greek Mythology. I was hoping though that the whole Harry/Karen relationship would get a little more off the ground - he teased me, just when you think its getting good, it turns out to be a fever dream. A bit of a cop out for us dedicated readers. What Harry will do next is completely up in the air and I have no idea when the next volume is due out.

It lacked a little of the punch I usually expect and I'm disappointed about Nicodemus - yet again.

I give it
