Cover & Summary: Skin Game by Jim Butcher


butcher-skingameSkin Game by Jim Butcher is the forthcoming new Dresden Files novel!

There is no release date set for the book. I know Jim has been working hard on it, making it the best damn book he possibly can. He’s kinda cool that way. Needless to say, the wait will be worth our time. Harry Dresden is one of the most celebrated characters in all of fantasy and his story is continuing in a way that might surprise you.

Want to learn more about it? Want to be semi-spoiled with the dust jacket copy? Here is more about Skin Game:

Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day….

Because 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.

He doesn’t know the half of it….

Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains—led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone—to break into the highest-security vault in town so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

It’s a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure horde in the supernatural world—which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he’s dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.

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 love me a Holy Grail story, so much I used that myth in my own debut urban fantasy novel. Something tells me though that Harry is going to have a very bad day concerning that ancient relic. And only the incomparable Jim Butcher can bring us that tale!

Skin Game by Jim Butcher has no release date yet. But one is coming soon!

Just like Nicodemus for Harry!
