Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry, Hardback Book

Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: War Cry Hardback



"To say I loved this book would besuch an understatement.

It's a great, intensely fun, quick read that satisfiedmy Dresden Files itch in a year during which I'm not sure we'll get a new novelin the series." - KirkusAwar is raging between the vampire forces of the Red Court and the White Council- a war that the wizards are losing.

So desperate are the Council that they'vedragooned the experienced and the outcast to reinforce their thinning ranks ofWardens.

One of these draftees is one Harry Dresden, Chicago's onlywizard-for-hire and a guy who's long been looked upon with suspicion by thesupernatural authorities.

Now, he's one of them, and his first big mission as aWarden is a doozy: take a small team of greenhorns to a frigid town in themiddle of nowhere to rescue a handful of mortals who've been targeted by the RedCourt.

The question is, why exactly are these particular mortals so crucial tothe outcome of the war?

The answer will come only if Harry can keep them, andhis team, alive for one very long night.

This graphic novel collects the criticallyacclaimed, five-issue series in one volume, and features a bonus section withJim Butcher's original story outline, sketchbook artwork from Carlos Gomez,cover gallery with roughs from Stjepan Sejic, andmore!Creator Commentary from JimButcher: "The greatest frustration about writing the Dresden Files isall the stories I come up with that are too small or too straightforward towrite into a novel.

One of the great pleasures I've had as a writer is gettingthe opportunity to tell some of those stories in a short-story format, and ingraphic novels like this one!

War Cry is one of the stories I alwayswanted to tell but never got the chance to in the context of the novels, and I'mextremely pleased with how well it's coming out."
