Recap / The Dresden Files Grave Peril
Hey, do you remember Bianca? That side-character vampire who attacked Harry and later killed her own thrall? No? Well she sure remembers, and she blames Harry for her thrall's death. She's out for revenge, and she's going to set up basically the entire rest of the series
while doing it.

- Cannot Spit It Out: Harry's problem with this regarding Susan is noted throughout the book.
- Foreshadowing: Oh, so much! Most of the people, organizations, and events encountered in this novel come up in BIG ways in later books.

- Monster of the Week: The Nightmare, a jumped-up ghost of a sorcerer, a bunch of Red Court vampires, and Lea, Harry's incredibly creepy fairy godmother
