Harry Dresden — Wizard

Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.

Other Entertainment.

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things — and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a — well, whatever.

There’s just one problem. 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. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.

A good friend of mine has been telling me to read these books for a long time. I always meant to just put them on the long line of books that I needed to get to. I am sure you all know that kind of pile. Well I finally got around to the audio book since that is my latest thing to try and boy am I glad I did. Putting aside that James Marsters reads them (love) the book was great.

Harry is my kind of guy, he can laugh at himself, he takes life seriously and even when he is down he finds a way to pick himself up and fight back. He can wield magic but always tries to do so with a good purpose. Yes Harry Dresden is my kind of guy and my kind of wizard. I love the crime solving aspects as well and I can just picture Murphy in my head. I am still working on coming to terms with some of the terms used in the Dresden world but overall thumbs up from me. I loved it and I am eager to start with the next in the series.
