Harry Dresden--WizardLost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.
Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work--magical or mundane.
But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.
A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses--and the first two don't count...
So this is going to be a super quick review.
I love this series so far. There are times when it’s a little slow, but the world and character building is great.
Dresden seems to always find himself in pretty crazy situations. He gets dragged into the middle of problems he wishes he could ignore. But I do like that he isn’t scared to fight for what’s right.
I also admire that he bends the rules a bit, regardless of the consequence, in order to do the right thing.
He makes some pretty unlikely friends, and has many enemies.
I can’t wait to see what happens in the next Dresden book.
