Dresden Files

Fae hounds are similar to the Black Dogs[Footnote 1] of folklore. They first appear in Cold Days.


Though labeled the little cousins of Black Dogs, they are described as vicious ambush hunters, and don't like to be spotted while hunting. Harry Dresden reminisces having fought a Black Dog, and not fancying a repeat.[1]

In the series[]

Cold Days[]

In Cold Days, Harry Dresden spots three of them ambushing him and his party during their climb to the top; he clips one, and sets on fire the hideout of the second; the third joins them in their flight.[1]
