Teaser Tuesday: Summer Knight by Jim Butcher

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher.

Summer Knight - Roc

“We have to find *** and stop her. Save the girl.”
“Or what happens?” Billy asked.
“Kaboom badness?”
I shook my head. “Mostly longer term than that.”
“Like what?”
“How do you feel about ice ages?”
-- Chapter 29

Summer Knight is book four in the Dresden Files, a series about Harry Dresden - the only wizard listed in Chicago's telephone book. He's tall, wears black and works as a private investigator for supernatural stuff in the mortal world: vampires, faeries, demons - you name it. Dresden works with a spirit named Bob, has a cynical voice and tells his sories in the first person.
In Summer Knight, he has to find the murderer of the Summer Queen's knight, try not to get too entangled in faerie debts and maybe surviving the clash of the summer and the winter faerie courts would be good as well. Full of suspense, mystery and wisecracks - I'm enjoying this book very much.

Which book are you reading today? Tease us in the comments.

I'm guessing the stars are there to hide any spoilers. I need to check out the Dresden Files.
