This is a book I’ve been uncertain about reading, ever since I’ve heard of the series.
We get to follow an unique private investigator around in this book. Harry Dresden, a cocky wizard, with a good old-fashioned sense of chivalry–one that I like–, has a rather full weekend. A woman needs him to find her husband, the police has asked for his help, and he is about a month and a half behind in his rent. What possibly could go wrong.
The book was fast paced, more of a suspense novel with a dash of contemporary fantasy rather than a mystery. The series is one that I think that parents of teenagers might want to vet first as it does involve some elements that could bother certain beliefs. But it is a good read, if you are comfortable in your beliefs.
