I’ve only gotten to read the first book which is called Storm Front, but it was freakin’ awesome. I bought a three pack set at Barnes and Nobel and absolutely cannot wait to start on the second book. There are 13 books in the series thus far with the 13th one due out in March.
The first book pretty much introduces Harry and the type of magic he can and cannot due. It starts out kind of slow and I had hard time getting through some of the first chapters, but when it takes off, it takes off with a bang. It’s a complete page turner.
Harry is also investigating a series of murders that he believes can only be done by another wizard. But since Harry is the only known wizard in the area, he is a taking a lot of heat.
Harry must find the killer to not only prevent anymore murders, but to also save his own hide. But when the supernatural creatures of his world get wind that Harry is on the case, they will do anything to stop him. But Harry also has friends in low places and incredible motivation to keep on keeping-on.
I really like this series because Harry has a lot of flaws and isn’t completely perfect and good at everything like one Mr. Cullen. He is bad at relationships, but good with magic. Even though he is a wizard though, his magic is limited.
Harry has an awesome sense of humor and is a smart ass most of the time. He is chivalrous and old fashioned. I absolutely adore his character.
There is also a series on TV appropriately called The Dresden Files, but I have heard bad things about it. I refuse to watch it until I’ve finished the series.
