Small Favor by Jim Butcher
In Small Favor, Harry finds himself beholden to Mab, Queen of the Winter Court. She calls in a "small favor" which puts Harry and everyone he holds dear in extreme danger. Spells fly, monsters and demons straight from hell are called forth and Harry swashbuckles his way from one nearly fatal encounter to the next. It is all exciting, suspenseful and, for me, unfortunately, a little too over the top to suspend belief.
A while back I wrote about a Dresden graphic novel, Welcome to the Jungle. I do think that format was better suited to the subject than the novel, however, the novel is an exciting and enjoyable read.
