Harry Dresden -- Wizard
Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or
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. @ goodreads
This is the first time I have read a Harry Dresden book and I love it!
I'm so glad for my friends at goodreads for bringing me into his world.
had no idea Harry was so freaking funny! And the cast of characters in
this book were great. The bad guys sucked of course. I loved Mac, the
bartender. He made me think of a quiet-ish Andre the Giant :) I loved
Toot-Toot, the funny little faerie. I wish he was in the book more but
hopefully I will get to see him in more books. I could just order a
pizza and he might show up :) Mister is a no brainer because I love
animals and he's a cool cat! Then there is Bob, who could not resist Bob
the talking skull :) I'm not sure what kind of creature lived inside, I
may have missed that part but once in awhile Harry would let him out,
but not so much because he seemed to like to hang out at the sorority's
and cause trouble!
So, someone is going around killing people
with black magic and Harry must find out who is doing this because so
many people are blaming him for it.
The story is really good and
didn't drag for me at any point. There is too much craziness and action
going on for that. I look forward to reading the other books in the
series up to date.
