Harry Dresden is Chicago’s only openly practicing wizard. He’s even in the phone book. However, business has been slow lately and he’s not sure how he’s going to pay for his next meal, much less rent. Lucky for him, a new murder happened that was right up his alley.
People were getting mutilated. Weird paw prints were being left behind. There was a full moon out. You can guess what’s going to happen next, or can you?
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.”
