Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work--magical or mundane.
But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.
A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses--and the first two don't count...
Due to so many people enjoying the Dresden Files, I decided I’d read a few more. With each one I read, I can see why people are attracted to Harry’s dry wit and his adventures. Plus, people usually are intrigued by things that go bump in the night. Well, here’s the wizard that can tell you that yes, sometimes things you don’t want to know about are hiding under your bed. Don’t look.
In this case, people are getting mutilated by what appears to be a werewolf, or are they? Using his contacts, Harry dives into the world of werewolves to help his contact in the SI unit of the Chicago Police, Detective Murphy.
These books are great fun. Harry Dresden has a unique sense of humor, while dark, it’s amusing. His trials while trying to figure out what’s causing the mayhem before it gets too out of control is fascinating. It takes a lot of research into otherworld creatures to write books like these. It’s easy to see why the Dresden Files has such a huge fan base.
I’m not sure I’ll ever be one of his biggest fans. While his books are fun to read, they also make me slightly uncomfortable. It’s probably my own personal religious leanings there. But the amount of detail he goes into for sorcery purposes is a little much for me. However, that’s only my personal opinion. The fact he has so many fans goes to show that it’s not a hindrance for a lot of people. And I’ll always be one of the first to say, “That’s the way it should be.”
