Anyone else want to remind us what was in this book?
Then the Summer Knight is murdered and all fingers are pointing to Queen Mab of the Winter Court. She then tells Harry that she has taken over his debt from his godmother and that his first favor will be to find out who really killed Summer's Knight. Time is against Harry as both the Winter and Summer Courts are gearing for the largest power struggle seen in millennia which could result in the end of world as humans know now it.
"Other than some assistance from a troop of pizza eating pixies, a den of young-adult werewolves, and a few faerie may-not-wannabees, Harry is on his own in this one. Unless you want to count the people (and not quite people) who are trying to kill him as company. Whatever the reason for the murder was, no one wants Harry to find it. Out of the six queens who rule Faerie, one has hired him and the other five just might kill him on sight. Yet he must talk to them all, as well as their supporters. Sometimes it seems that the vampires would have been a better choice." (from a reviewer on Amazon).
Summer Knight also marks the return of someone that Harry thought he would never see again.
This is one of my favourites. Harry doesn't actually have to battle any of the superpowerful beings too much. The plot is clever, alies and betrayals all around. The pixie pizza crew is just fantastic.
We learn more about his past, although I don't think Eileen will feature much more? she does seem to get a small part for someone who is so close to Harry? cf Thomas?
We'll meet Elaine again, reading_fox - is it Elaine, or Eileen?
