Publisher Description

In the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series, Harry Dresden’s investigation of a grisly double murder pulls him into the darkest depths of magical Chicago…

As a professional wizard, Harry Dresden knows firsthand that the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things—and most of them don’t play well with humans. And those that do enjoy playing with humans far too much. He also knows he’s the best at what he does. Technically, he’s the only at what he does. But even though Harry is the only game in town, business—to put it mildly—stinks.

So when the Chicago P.D. bring him in to consult on a double homicide 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...

“A great series—fast-paced, vividly realized and with a hero/narrator who’s excellent company.”—Cinescape

Customer Reviews

Jon-NC ,

Very nice introduction.

A nice introduction to the world of Dresden. While I was hesitant at first, after the story got going I enjoyed this one a lot, and was ready for more.

TheDangerMouse ,

Brilliant, full of roguish charm.

I was loathe to come anywhere near this series due to it's television syndication. I am delighted to say that I was completely taken aback by the clever characters and completely sucked in by the rough knight in tarnished armor Harry Dresden is. His self-depreciation and stubborn sense of honor makes him a wayward hero I will enjoy reading about for many books to come. If you like this, look up Glen Cook's P.I. Novels. You won't be disappointed in those either.

Enjoyable

This is nice combination of 2 of my favorite genre’s, sarcastic detective (Spenser for Hire) and Fantasy (JRR). With that in mind, I found this an enjoyable escape into a good read.
Looking forward to reading some of the follow on chapters of this likable character.
If you enjoy either genre, you’ll enjoy this.
