Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece
Harry Dresden- the wizard with many tricks up his sleeve and weapons at his disposal-some magical & some not. He wears sweatpants, cowboy boots, old ratty t-shirts & tops it off with his infamous duster. He works with the police on occasion solving cases of a supernatural nature. He may not sound like much but he's a pretty cool character. In this first book, Storm Front, we learned a little bit about his background and got a taste of his magical abilities while he was on the hunt for someone using dark magic for nefarious purposes...
While I'm definitely not a fan of the sweatpants & cowboy boots, I am a fan of Harry Dresden now. I really enjoyed the mix of magic & mystery together and I thought his magical abilities were pretty neat & creative. The series reminded me of a more adult version of The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney so if you liked that one, you'll probably like this one too. I listened to the audio book (speeded up to 1.3 as always) and I really liked the narrator a lot so I'm definitely going to continue the series -in audio. I'm looking forward to seeing what else Harry can do.
