Last week I started reading Storm Front by Jim Butcher. It's the first book in a series called The Dresden Files.
There’s just one problem. 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. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.
Magic. It can get a guy killed."
So far I am REALLY enjoying this book! It is action packed... just when you think Harry Dresden might catch a break, he finds himself in bad situations again. Like being threatened by a mob boss, hit on the head with a baseball bat, or attacked by a demon. He's just trying to earn a paycheck to pay his rent by helping the police solve a double homicide, but of course this puts him in all kinds of danger. The best part of the book is Harry's narrative. Despite being a powerful wizard, he is pretty down-to-earth, and reacts to his changing situations in a realistic and human way... his character is very believable and you can't help but relate to him and root for him.
How is it that I didn't even know this book series existed until now? There are 13 books in the series, so I know I will have plenty to read! Thanks to my friend Amanda who suggested this book for me!
What are YOU reading? I want to know!!
