This was a very good set of books. It includes Storm Front, Fool Moon, and Grave Peril. If you like the TV series then you will love the books.

Jim Butcher doesn't fail to keep you entertained. In the first 3 books of the Dresden Files, Harry comes up against multiple evil things that are all different enough that you don't become bored. Throw in the sarcasm and wit and the complex characters and it makes for a fabulous read.

This was my first introduction to Harry Dresden. I've never seen the TV series; I heard or read somewhere that it was as if Harry Potter had grown up, moved to Chicago, and started a business helping the police. No one mentioned how funny Harry is!

Harry Dresden, professional, but starving, wizard is a smart aleck with a heart of gold. The first book "Storm Front" was hard to put down. The dialogue between Harry and Bob, the spirit that inhabits a human skull and helps Harry whip up potions, is rapid fire, and funny--one wisecrack after another. Harry tackles a group of not-so-friendly vampires, helping the cops solve a murder.

"Fool Moon" was slow for me; Bob was gone, and the action was very bloody and gory. I really had to force myself to finish it.

"Grave Peril" starts with a ghost haunting a hospital nursery. This plot was much better, and kept me more interested. But I had a feeling as though there should have been a book in between; references were made to a previous case, and I felt I had missed something. Having said that, the action really moved along, and was tense enough that I had to finish it!

Oh...and Bob was back. I heart Bob.
