Jim Butcher The Dresden Files/Summer Knight

Once upon a time I was at the library and got a book, looked at the cover and saw that it was written by a NYT Bestselling Author , so I thought , what the hey, take it out and what can you lose, right. I took the
novel home with the rest and tried to read it one day, knowing this was out of
my comfort zone. I was probably in a bad mood because I couldn’t get a groove
on it and put it down and took it back on my next trip back to the library, not
having even given it another try. Really, my loss. Fast forward to three weeks
ago and I find a graphic novel by the same guy, same series , and I totally
love it. The g.n. really opened my eyes to what I had missed before and now I
am hooked. The post today is on one of the early novels in the series Summer

The main character in all this fun is Harry Dresden , the only wizard in the Chicago phonebook. He really gets himself into a tight jam this time as he is mixed up with just about every sort of being from the Nevernever,
Undertown, The White Council, The Red Council, werewolves, faeries ,trolls, ghouls,
assassins, and more; I think you get the drift. Jim Butcher has made a major
fan of me with his amazing writing style and humor. Harry Dresden wears many hats,
and he wears them all very well. I would say it is hard to peg the type of
novel this is: is it a detective novel, supernatural, suspense, urban fantasy? I am going to say all of them. The action is
spellbinding (haha) and constant throughout the novel, basically it is hard to
put down.

I know I am not going to be satisfied unless I read the entire series; I want to go on the ride with Harry Dresden. I am reformed and will not stop till I read them all; they will not be handed back this time
unread. The fact that these novels have not yet become a movie series is
amazing to me. They are so rich with dialogue and description of other worlds,
characters that are engaging and delightful, and a storyline that is inventive
and original. Jim Butcher and the novels of the Dresden Files just flat out
rock; I just wish I had caught on sooner.
