Waiting on Wednesday # : Skin Game (Dresden Files#15) by Jim Butcher

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this we write about books we are desperately waiting to get our hands on.
My pick is:
Book Title: Skin Game  (The Dresden Files #15)
Author: Jim Butcher
Type: Series
Genre: Urban  Fantasy, Paranormal, Mystery.
Expected Publication: May 27 2014
Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day….
Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful.
He doesn’t know the half of it….
Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains—led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone—to break into the highest-security vault in town so that they can then access the highest security vault in the Nevernever.
It’s a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world—which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he’s dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.
Dresden’s always been tricky, but he’s going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess—assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance….

I have been waiting for this one right after I finished the one before it. Dresden files is my favourite series and I desperately need to read this!

    With spring break over with, the new term has started up and there's some changes in store for the gang and for chanel replica Manaka.

Unfortunately for Manaka, the increasingly replica handbags clingy and obnoxious Kitaoji is in his class and she's all over him as she watches how Tojo is definitely into him and he into he. The new year starts off hermes outlet slowly for most, but Manaka has it worse when he meets a new member to the club, the young woman he saw at the movies during spring break. And just like then fendi outlet, she's pretty argumentative and critical from the start about just about everything.
