Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, takes on a case as a favor to his friend Thomas-a vampire of dubious integrity-only to become the prime suspect in a series of ghastly murders.
Love this book!
By I don't carrrrreeeeee
The first sentence is the best intro I've ever seen in a book ever👌🏻
Great book. Slow build to the store, but over all great book.
Better every book
I came to the Dresden Files books via the TV series. I did like the show very much and now view the books and the series as two different dogs from the same mother. Butcher has the rare ability to interweave different subplots without neglecting any or artificially manufacturing closure. Everything written seems to have purpose either for the plot, book or series. Harry is flawed but genuinely likable and the supporting characters are well formed and integral to the success of the story. I look forward to reading more.
Jim Butcher has the most amazing imagination! The action never stops, and it is never repeats, always something different and really well dressed, fully realized situations with 'got you standing there' at Harry's left shoulder involvement in the story.
Butcher can build a scene like no one else with his characters. You will love or hate them and tremble, chuckle and smirk with them.
Reading his stories is as good as it can get without being there yourself.
