BOOKS: The Dresden Files

Anyone else a fan of this series? I started reading them a year ago and the series just keeps getting better and better! Jim Butcher is a great author, and his characters really develop as the story progresses. The best part is that it’s one of the most positive portrayals of the Catholic Church in current media that I’ve seen. One of Harry Dresden’s staunchest allies is Michael Carpenter (haha you just KNOW from his name that this guy’s cool), a devout Catholic, happily married with many kids, and fights evil with a holy sword with one of the nails of the Crucifixion worked into its hilt. I highly recommend this series, its a fun read with just the right combination of humor, action and emotional scenes.

Currently finished book 4, so don’t spoil it, please!

I have all of them and have read them several times. Great series!
