The Dresden Files - not Harry Potter

I recently finished books 1 and 2 of the Dresden files and I loved it. The Dresden files is a fantasy novel set in the rich back-drop of modern day Chicago. Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a modern day wizard schooled by the White Council in the arcane arts. Imagine a wizard/private investigator fighting vampires, trolls, and werewolves in the bustling city of Chicago. Add to that the complication of working as a wizard with the mob breathing down your back.

I'm not gonna spoil anything here, but all in all, the Dresden files is a fun read. Much like reading a Buffy: the vampire slayer novelization just with more testosterone and boobietude. This is not your nephew's Harry Potter book. 'Nuff said.
