Q:  Have we ever seen Harry boost Infriga or other Winter-magic with Soulfire?

Yes in cold days, that harpoon he makes of ice and soulfire in the barfight with the outsider, he who walks before

So both amazon, a danish bookstore and some other place has set the release date to 16th of April. Is that just because one of them guessed and the others are copying?

I dont think we will get any further in regards to Maggie.
But in regards to Diedre/Susan symmetry. As I remember it Harry also lied by indicating she would be protected from the knife by her fairy armor, even though he she would not be. That does sound a bit like Nic saying the enemy cannot get you here.

Yeah but why should Harry feel bad about it?  He might not like using magic for that purpose but I'm pretty sure it's something he can live with considering the alternative.
How many times does he ponder about the purity of magic and how important it is to use it for the right reasons and how X and Y villain is corrupting it? A LOT of times! It is to the degree that it gets a bit repetitive af the fifth read/listen (bit I guess I can't blame Jim for not writing in a way that lends itself to being reread that many times).
It just seems odd that he is so into it and then with the crashed car and the wolfhound he never thinks about it afterwards. At least not on stage.

I think I can go so far as to say that if you are not ready to have kids, you should make sure you don't have any. So the parents are responsible for harm that comes to the kid and harm that comes from the kid. For example if Maggie had turned warlock. Also following your great power great responsibility argument.
But at any point in Harry's life from now and untill he is dead he will have dangerous enemies. Does that mean he should never have kids? Should Ebenezer (or any other combat active wizard) never have had any?

I really do not understand the argument about the act of them having a baby meaning that they are responsible. So two people love each other. They get a baby. A horrible monster kidnaps the baby and wants to use it for a bloodline curse.

How does that become the parents fault? Yes there was some details in between with Harry not knowing he was a father and the kid not living with either of them. But how does it make them more responsible for the whole situation at C.I. than if they had been living together (Susan, Harry and Maggy in Chicago)? If it does not thenn by your arguments every parent who has their child kidnapped and used for a blood curse is somehow responsible?

Also I get that the ideal scenario would be to post quotes and page numbers to support theories and ideas. But I listen to the books. So if I had to do that I would just have to stop posting on the boards (or buy the books only for the purpose of posting here and that is not going to happen)

DF Spoilers / How many humans has Harry killed with magic? 4+?

So there is
1  - Justin
?? - Drugged young people at the party in Biancas house when it burns in Grave Peril
2? - Raiths bodyguards when they drive into Harry's lance of force in Blood Rites
1? - The wolfhound that is part of the hunt which Harry hits with force magic so it/he hits the ground at breakneck speed in Cold Days

It seems odd that he never considers the bodyguards and the teenager disguised as a wolfhound as violations of the law. I know we do not see them die for certain, but it seems very likely.

Can you think of more he has killed? Why do you think those last three do not bother him?
