Rodriguez arrives with a forged invitation; due to this breach of hospitality, the vampires are free to kill her. To make matters worse, the Leanansidhe is present and her proximity further weakens Dresden due to his broken promise to her. Rodriguez bargains with her to cure Dresden in return for a year of Rodriguez's memory, but not specifying what form that would take. The faerie seals the bargain and leaves Rodriguez with no memory at all of Dresden - the year taken was not contiguous, but rather consisted of every moment Rodriguez had spent in Dresden's presence.
Dresden senses that she is the sorcerer manipulating the Nightmare. The Leanansidhe reappears to gift Amoracchius to Madame Bianca. As part of the evening's entertainment, Mavra intends to unmake the sword with the blood of an innocent person, Lydia. It's an obvious trap; Dresden and Michael Carpenter will have to violate the rules of hospitality and the Unseelie Accords —potentially triggering war between wizards and vampires—in order to save Lydia and the sword.
As the Red Court vampires surround them, Thomas explains that he and Justine are also marked for death and offers to help Dresden in return for protection. Bianca captures Justine and holds her ransom with the price of Thomas betraying Dresden. Thomas agrees and pushes Rodriguez into the mob of vampires. Bianca double-crosses him and keeps Justine, ordering Thomas' death. He flees while Rodriguez is dragged away screaming. Burning with rage, Dresden incinerates everything in the immediate vicinity and collapses, exhausted.
Michael Carpenter carries Lydia and Dresden out of the inferno. Dresden regains consciousness a day later. He's slightly burned but Lydia is safe and asleep. Michael Carpenter has been guarding them in spite of his own wounds and the poor health of his wife and newborn child. Thomas arrives to propose that they work together to rescue Rodriguez and Justine.
As an offer of good faith, Thomas returns Amoracchius. Lydia awakens, possessed by the Nightmare, and attacks them. Thomas subdues her using his vampiric powers and Dresden exorcises the spirit. His attempts to control it using the demon's name fail and he realizes the culprit is not the demon at all; it's actually the ghost of Leonid Kravos himself, using the demon's shape to distract Dresden.
Mavra used the torment spell to stir up the spirits, which in turn weakened the barrier between the real world and the Nevernever , thus allowing Kravos to become a more powerful ghost when he committed ritual suicide in his jail cell. Mavra had also been teaching Bianca sorcery, making her a more powerful adversary.
The group decide to journey through the Nevernever to sneak into Bianca's house, but en route, the Leanansidhe attacks and captures Dresden. He strikes yet another bargain with her, extracting a promise that she will not bother him for a year and a day.
Bound by it, she releases him. However, as Michael Carpenter and Thomas made no such bargain, she attacks them instead. They urge Dresden to go ahead without them and rescue Rodriguez and Justine while they hold off the faerie and her Hellhounds. Dresden returns to the real world inside Bianca's house, which turns out to be a trap. Dresden is captured by Bianca and locked in a room with Justine and Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has been partially turned into a vampire, a process that will be completed if she kills a human through vampiric feeding. Dresden manages to restore her memory with magic, and he reinforces Rodriguez's self-control and defuses her thirst by finally admitting his love for her. Together, they seduce Kravos to kill Dresden. But due to the weakened barrier, Dresden's ghost forms even after Rodriguez revives him and together the two Dresdens defeat Kravos. Dresden consumes the Nightmare's essence, taking back the lost portion of his power and Kravos' power as well, getting supercharged with black magic.
They try to escape, but are stopped by Bianca, who offers a compromise: Dresden gets Justine, his magical items, and safe passage; in exchange, Bianca gets Rodriguez. If Dresden refuses and tries to rescue Rodriguez, there will be war between the vampires of the Red Court and the White Council. Dresden fights back with a powerful spell that exploits the thinned barrier with the Nevernever to rouse the spirits of all the vampires' victims against them.
