"The building was on fire, and it wasn't my fault". How can you not laugh at that first setence knowing how drama follows our poor Harry around?!

Harry is running from poop flinging monkey demons holding a box of puppies and the it does not let up from there. There is so much action in this book and Harry is at his best throwing his wise cracks around and dragging Murphy into the thick of things once again. In this book we have a lot of our questions answered.......

I was having trouble hanging on to the series, the 4th & 5th books just seemed to really go slow and drag, this book has given me faith in this series again!! If you are reading 4 or 5 and are having a hard time like I was stick with it the 6th one ROCKS!!

Not my favorite, but still a great series. This one added a lot to the lore of the universe, though.

Book six, in which we learn more about the Black Court and White Court of vampires, a bit about the porno industry, and fill in some gaps in Harry's family history. Plus Murphy takes off her pants!

I loved this book. It was one of my favorites in the series so far. The story was fast paced and we got more insight into Harry's life. I could not wait to finish this book, it was a great summer read and has made me anxious to start the next book in the series. Definitely recommended to all Dresden fans!

In the 6th book of the Dresden Files series, Harry Dresden finds himself going undercover on the set of an adult film. The film's producer believes he's the target of an entropy curse that is killing the women around him and needs Harry to find out who is behind the curse. Harry got involved in this case as a favor to his vampire acquaintance, Thomas Raith. Thomas has a personal stake in the case that Harry can't quite figure out, until he meets Thomas's vampire family.

This was my favorite book in the far. There are several returning characters and a bunch of new ones. Thomas is a great character and his family is very interesting. I hope we'll be seeing more of them in the future. There is a big revelation in this book that I didn't see coming. Can't wait to see how this series goes forward in the future. My rating: 5 Stars.

I enjoyed this book, but I'd like to see some different things that go bump in the night so to speak. Although I understand with a "war" going on that's what your going to be dealing with.
I feel like Harry has been through so much, and I was so glad to see him finally catch a break in the way of who he gets to have around him. Now if he could just get the girl!
This series is very well written in my opinion, and I have already recommended it to several friends. Now having read only six books in the series I'm even more upset about the fact that the TV show only lasted one season. There's so much that could have been done with it. That's TV for you these days. The shows with great story and great promise get canceled, and we're left with crap reality shows. Unrelated on this site I guess, but still annoying.

All the Wizard Harry Dresden books are a great read. One of my favorite urban fantasy writers.

I really do adore Jim Butcher. After reading LKH's book and going on the elusive search for a plot it was nice to find a book that had one up front. One that not only had a plot but kept it going throughout the book. With multiple plotlines even. Hooray!

Jim Butcher also has another thing that I miss from the LKH books, a kick-ass female lead. No, Harry Dresden isn't female but he has a female associate that kicks ass. She's the woman I want to be, forceful, forthright, has an icy stare suitable for bad guys and wise cracking wizards alike, and she apparently has a damn fine ass. She knows how to handle weapons, rides a Harley (though Janet Evanovich's series has got me drooling over Ducati's), and knows a handful or more of martial arts. This is my kind of woman. I can't decide if I want to be her or do her.

Throw in some family drama, a few more women who can kick ass, some truly hilarious scenes involving a frozen turkey, flaming monkey excrement, great one liners and this is why I read Jim Butcher. And why I go back and read books when I've already learned major plot points. Because honestly, it doesn't get better than vampires quoting I Corinthians.
