For Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry's seeing dollar signs. But where there's black magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name.
Brilliant, full of roguish charm.
I was loathe to come anywhere near this series due to it's television syndication. I am delighted to say that I was completely taken aback by the clever characters and completely sucked in by the rough knight in tarnished armor Harry Dresden is. His self-depreciation and stubborn sense of honor makes him a wayward hero I will enjoy reading about for many books to come. If you like this, look up Glen Cook's P.I. Novels. You won't be disappointed in those either.
If you are thinking about reading the Dresden Files STOP!!!
That thinking would be better spent reading this series which has become my favorite book series. You have to give Butcher a but of slack for the first few books in this series as they were the first books he had ever written. That is not to say however that even the first few books aren't wonderful pieces of literature. Jim Butcher is truly a master author and both of his series (which I read all of at least twice a year) have given much pleasure in my life.
In short stop thinking about reading these books and just do it!!!
IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER!!!!
Good start to a series. Wish It would have had more of the major storyline that spans the entire series, but it has more than enough for me to gladly continue!
