Now Dresden finds himself faced with a nightmarish dilemma: Morgan, formerly his chief persecutor among the Wardens, has been wrongly accused of treason against the White Council - and has come to Harry for help.

In another complicated case, there are a lot of very powerful players, and with the war between the White... [Lire la suite]

{The Dresden files, book 6 : Blood rites} de Jim Butcher

Quatrième de couverture : For Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, there have been worse assignments than going undercover on the set of an adult film. Dodging flaming monkey-poo for instance. Or going toe-to-leaf with a walking plant monster. Still, there's something more troubling than usual about his newest case. The film's producer believes he's the target of a sinister entropy curse - but it's the women around him who are dying, in increasingly spectacular ways.Harry's even more frustrated because he only got...
