The Dresden Files.
Posted: Thursday, September 26, 2013 4:27 PM

This is the only series where I started with the first book. Didn't continue in sequential order, but still, simply reading a book three steps ahead of the previous ones simply made me want to read them all the more.


Harry Copperfield Blackstone Dresden is the only wizard to be found in the Chigago, IL phone book:



Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations.

Consultating. Advice. Reasonable Rates.

No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties,

or Other Entertainment.


His snarky, sassy, take no BS attitude makes you wonder what new trouble he'll get himself into, and his internal monolouges will have you snickering into the pages time and time again, or at least grinning.


This series is not for everyone. It's like Harry Potter for big kids... but less British, more americanized cursing, guns, explosions (evocation), and concepts from places such as the Brother Grimm, Shakespear, Norse Mythology, Christian/Baptist/Catholic Ideas, Native American lore, and many more. All given a special twist by the writer, Jim Butcher.


As the series goes on you follow how Harry comes into his own as a wizard and mold his strengths to protect his weaknesses... such as his mouth when it's set on auto-pilot.
