The Dresden Files: Cast A Deadly Spell
"The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold." - Harry Dresden, Storm Front
Through his unwilling and stubbornly given influence, Harry Dresden has begun to change the direction of the White Council. Of course, it helps that his outlook has been proven to be correct- the world is spinning out of control, and only the most willingly blind can ignore this obvious fact.
Because of this, the White Council has begun to recruit a younger generation more aggressively than before, to join the depleted ranks of their Wardens. They have had to grow up faster than ever before, being put on the front lines with a bare minimum of training.
