Das zauberhafte Elbflorenz - Stätte von Kunst und Kultur Barocke Kirchen, Palais und Schlösser so weit das Auge reicht - wer durch Dresdens Zentrum spaziert, weiß gar nicht, was er sich zuerst anschauen soll, so originalgetreu sind die einst zerstörten Bauten wie die Frauenkirche, der Zwinger und die Semperoper rekonstruiert. Die Szene ist dagegen in der Neustadt zuhause. Hier locken die belebten Straßen mit alternativen Kneipen, Bars und Clubs Nachtschwärmer an. Im Sommer laden lauschige Biergärten zum Verweilen an den Elbufern ein, auf den Wiesen wird gepicknickt, man trifft sich zu Festen und Konzerten. Erholung finden die Dresdner und ihre Gäste im Großen Garten, in der Heide und in den Weinbergen, die mit der Standseil- oder Schwebebahn zu erreichen sind und von denen man einen hervorragenden Blick auf das Elbtal hat.
The new novel in the #1 New York Times best-selling Dresden Files series. Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden´s lover - until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it. Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it - against Harry. To prevail this time, he may have no choice but to embrace the raging fury of his own untapped dark power. Because Harry´s not fighting to save the world...He´s fighting to save his child. 1.

An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness - and she´s calling in her marker.

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago´s first (and only) Wizard PI. Turns out the ´´everyday´´ world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don´t play well with humans. That´s where Harry comes in. A bargain made with the Queen of Air and Darkness has forced Dresden into a new job: professional killer. His first task is to bring death to an immortal. As if that wasn´t hard enough, Dresden learns of a danger to Demonreach, the living island hidden upon Lake Michigan. A danger that could destroy billions and land Dresden in the deepest trouble he has ever known. Dresden has only 24 hours to gather the allies he has left and prevent a cataclysm - all while the power he bargained to get, but never meant to keep, lays siege to his very soul. Magic - it can get a guy killed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Marsters. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/twuk/000707/bk_twuk_000707_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Harry Dresden lives! 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 one 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. 1.
