Wow. Just finished "Cold Days" this morning....
...and just Wow.

My daughter is working her way through the series and she asked me tell her about it. I just blinked and said, "I don't think I can until you read more of the earlier ones." Almost any discussion on specifics would be nothing but spoilers.

Depends. Unfortunately I know why the title Ghost Story is appropiate - before getting there in the series in my reading. But I don't know who or why. I also see a huge spoiler when merely reading the book description of Cold Days. It might not spoil the book itself, but there is a lot of books before.
Spoiler:
The mere mentioning of Mab is a spoiler - having only met her once so far in Summer Knight.

That all won't spoil my fun - YMMW.

For those of you in the middle of a Dresden Files book/eBook, it's the last one you'll ever read. Go to the above mentioned post and you'll know why.
What nonsense. "It's been decided..." And yes, I read the other thread that's linked. If the library BS didn't get me to leave Harry Dresden, this won't either.

Oh, the irony. All you do is complain about the Dresden covers anyway!

If you expect me to not read any penguin books no more, then you are nuts.

I'm only on chapter 12 and after what just happened, I'm dying to know...

Spoiler:
Does Harry get his family (meaning everyone he loves) back? Or is it all watching them at arms length as they inevitably try to help him? Does he get any time with Mouse and/or his daughter? I'm laughing at myself at how the little bit if time with Bob in the car has made me incredibly happy, but I want more!!!

I'm reading Summer Knight now and I have to say WOW! This is defenitely my favourite so far. I'm so glad I still have ten more books to discover after this and more to come. Have I already thanked everyone for making me discover this series?

Poor Molly. I wonder how she's going to cope.
Ditto to the spoiler.

Spoiler:
I was so happy to see that she seemed to have gotten her feet under her again after Ghost Story, and Rashid willing to help clear things with the White Council. And then that blow at the end there.

Also: Stop teasing us about Mac!

So, you've read the other 13 books as well?
