First Sentence: Many things are not what they seem: The worst things in life never are.
Chicago wizard Harry Dresden is asked for help by his friend Sergeant Murphy. From appearance, a woman has committed suicide but Harry confirms she was murdered and, on the wall, finds the Bible verse notation Exodus 22:18, “Suffer not a witch to live.” But this is not the only woman to die. Other practitioners have been killed and Harry agrees to protect one group of woman from a tall Warden in a grey cloak; his brother Thomas.
The series is so much better than the television series. Butcher makes the unbelievable, believable. His characters are great and the action non-stop, but there is also humor and humanity in the story. Butcher also provides a bit of information as to the paganism and Wicca. This is not series for the weak of stomach and, if you’re new to the series I’d recommend starting at the beginning. However, I loved it and think it be the best in the series so far.
