.Harry Dresden Files [A Book Series] Review.

Just as the title says, this is a book review on my newest series, called the Harry Dresden Files, by Jim Butcher.
Currently there are 14 books in this series, but I have only read the first 2 {or actually, the first 3 if you count the Illustrated novel, because, yes people, I did read a comic novel}. To keep you up to speed, I've been trying to nab all the novels in order from the library, but it seems that I'm not the only one reading these. And I now know why. 
This series is freaking good.
Not the hardest of reads, but certainly fun, exciting, and a bit playful {the main character, Harry Dresden's, cheeky humor is very refreshing} this will be a series that I will be finishing from start to end. 
So, I guess since this is a book review, I should be letting you in on what it's all about.

Main Character: Harry Dresden. Occupation: Wizard & Private Investigator.
Yep, that's it. Each novel is based on Harry Dresden's different adventures as being a Wizard P.I. in the city of Chicago. He fights forces against bad vampires, daemons, witches, black arts wizards, etc. He works closely with the Chicago police when plain ol' humans just can't seem to catch the bad guys.
Harry's character as I mentioned, is quite hilarious. He is bad tempered, witty, and grungy. He doesn't try to please anyone, although he has a kind heart and is a true gentlemen. I found that Jim Butcher {the author} wrote Harry's character perfectly for this role. I find myself rooting for him, and hating when he gets misinterpreted {which happens quite often}. I also find myself drawn to wanting to help Harry find happiness, which I'm hoping blossoms as I get further into the novels.There seems to be an underlying love story coming soon. I just feel it.
I also love the supernatural stories in these books. They are different from what you read today, which is a nice change. The author doesn't really romance the bad guys, and keeps things exciting and dangerous. Keep in mind these where first written in the 80's, so these are the true 'vampire, deamon, and witch' stories before Twilight and True Blood came out. 
Well, I'm going to get back to my reading, so I hope you enjoy and find these books entertaining and an escape from reality. Book order and Video Below.
