Synopsis

For Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, 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.

First in an excellent series. I have read and reread the Dresden Files series numerous times and have never grown tired of it. Jim Butcher is truly a master of his craft.

Exciting & fun. Butcher is an excellent wŕiter. His stories are coherent & all sub plots & mysteries are neatly resolved by the end of the book.

The beginning of an awesome series!

I bought this book just to try a little something different. And became instantly hooked. Promptly had to buy every book in the series to date. If you enjoy contemporary mysteries and humor but want to throw something new into the mix, this is a great series to start with!

This was an awesome book and the start of what I am sure will be a great series! It's like a "real life" account of a wizard. So not Harry Potter, it is more realistic in a way and I enjoyed every minute with it.

I really enjoyed this book. I typically like the swords and horse fantasy as well, but found this book to be more entertaining than Furies of Calderón (though it was a very good book too). I really liked Dresden's character).

Dresden's a true hero
February 3rd, 2013
The first Dresden files book turned out to be quite the page-turner! I wasn't sure what to expect when this book was recommended to me, but it definitely wasn't something this fun, funny, and intriguing. It may now be great literature, but Butcher sure knows how to create a character that is likable, a plot that whirls you along at a blistering pace, and a different type of detective novel. He says his first love is true horses and swords fantasy, but I can't see any character in that type of book being more alluring than Harry Dresden. I'm in it for more!
