I’ve been reading the Dresden Files series for a while, ever since the TV series based on the books got me interested. So far, I’ve only gotten to the first four books in the series, and last I heard there were 14 in the series. So I can look forward to enjoying these for a while. Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, the son of a magician,
is a hard boiled private eye in Chicago. The twist is that he is Chicago’s first and only wizard P.I. You see magic is real, as are werewolves, vampires, and fairies, but most of us don’t realize that. Harry gets hired to find things and solve murders and very often those investigations lead to him using his magic or encountering supernatural villains. The tone is sarcastic and the stories are action packed. If you want to give The Dresden Files a try, start with the first book, Storm Front and then try Fool Moon .
