** This deserves emphasis. Harry Dresden, quite literally, ''punched an EldritchAbomination in the face.'' That in and of itself should equal the dinosaur.



** Likewise, Harry and Murphy riding with TheWildHunt on Murphy's magically tranformed Harley... across Lake Michigan. And they take on a small fleet full of Outsiders and their mortal minions, and still find time to fit in a BigDamnKiss or two.

*** As a note -- magic in the series is ''much'' harder to do over water and Molly is particularly noted as not having a lot of power to throw around. Earlier in the book, she had trouble hexing a jetski while Harry managed the same feat almost by accident. Hiding the boat ''and'' its noise ''and'' its wake while ''also'' blaring a stadium-volume rock concert is an ''enormous'' feat, far beyond what's been seen of her up to now. Harry describes her concentration as trying to conduct two separate orchestras in two completely different speed metal concerts.

And then she has enough concentration to pull off a pretty darn good veil for the rest of the fight.

* Some mention has to be made of Demonreach. It is the guardian of a supernatural prison where six Naagloshii (horrifically sadistic, vicious and powerful Native American spirits, one of which nearly killed Harry in a previous book) are considered ''the least'' of what's imprisoned there. Maeve herself outright states that she can't beat him without Lily, and even a Lady, weakest of the Faerie Queens, is an order of magnitude more powerful than any mortal wizard. And ''Mab'', who is even more powerful than that, seemed legitimately afraid that it could easily imprison her at Harry's behest.

Hell, it was just standing there when Lily and her 9 supporters were helping attack him. A Faerie Lady is hugely powerful, more so than almost any mortal wizard, and even with both working together, Demonreach just STOOD THERE, waiting calmly, while they and 18 other powerful faeries did everything in their collective power to kill it. Plus, as mentioned above, Mab seemed legitimately afraid that it could imprison her underground by itself.

*During Harry's rescue of his friends whom The Redcap kidnapped, the building they were in was blown into Lake Michigan. It's in the middle of Winter and is dark, so he won't be able to swim his friends to the surface. What does he do? Create an iceberg big enough to lift the building out of the water. This is why he is considered the most powerful Wizard of his generation, people.
