He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness.

She wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own: his soul.
