** Add to this the fact that Harry took down ''He Who Walks Behind'', as well as imprisoned the Erkling, the god of ''all frickin' nature'', it's safe to say that you ''don't'' want to fight Harry without at least some proper health insurance.
** Another thing. To date, Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is the ''only'' known mortal to resist the temptation of a Denarius. Toss in the matter that this ''particular'' Denarius was ''Lasciel'', the one known best for [[YourHeartsDesire tempting]] people, you get a seriously badass wizard.

** The Victim under BreakTheCutie. [[spoiler:Shagnasty kidnapped him, then proceeded to tear off strips of skin over and over, straining his vampire HealingFactor to its limit. Then he fed him someone and started the whole thing over again. The point was to get him to give up on his attempts at being a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ConcussionFrags: Pointedly averted in the climactic fight. Harry himself notes the difference between them, and realizes that Binder uses the less common concussion grenades in lieu of frags. Binder anticipated a wizard's means of protection against kinetic projectiles (such as shrapnel), but an explosive blastwave is much harder to protect against since pressure and heat are harder to shield against and the explosion could reach an unprotected area of the body with relative ease. Harry's respect for Binder's capacity for mayhem went up a few notches at that.

** Vince Graver is something Harry didn't expect: A man of principal. So while he will stop working for a client who is doing something illegal or dangerous, he won't betray them either, because he isn't an informer. When this situation is told to Morgan, the old man nods with a measure of approval and says that this is a "[p]retty rare problem."

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Madeline makes the mistake of describing her intention to eat Justine in front of Thomas, who beats her up and then offers her a "taste", inviting Justine to run her hair along his cousin's body. As Madeline's Hunger can't help but try to feed upon contact, Justine's love-protection burns the hell out of her.
* BenevolentConspiracy: [[spoiler: Merlin's refusal to acknowledge the existence of the Black Council means that Ebenezar has to form the Grey Council in secret to investigate and combat them.]]

* DissonantSerenity: After the BrownNote of seeing the Skinwalker with a wizard's Sight, Harry's narration gives a calm, if slightly incognizant blow-by-blow of the result. It takes him a few paragraphs to realize he's undergoing a FreakOut.



* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: The White Court wants people to think they are this but subvert it. They pretend to be this because they dislike physical fighting and, as Lara said in ''White Night'', she is more than willing to defeat the Council through peace and pleasantries. The darker aspects of them are shown with Club Zero, a White Court run club that has no limits on whatever fetishes or drugs its patrons do so long as one is pleasured, and Lara and her sisters [[spoiler:killing three loyal men who risked their lives to protect House Raith and were gravely injured but could survive with modern medical care to heal themselves]]. They are like a rose whose thorns are laced with arsenic or Ricin: Truly beautiful and alluring but deadly if mishandled.
