Reading List: Small Favor

There are good things and bad things about getting into a book series. Continuation of favorite characters, being able to immerse yourself into a world on multiple occasions. There is also the wait between novels, sometimes up to a year at a time. Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series is one of my favorite series. When the next one comes out, it is one of my favorite days. Small Favor is the 10th book in the series and there is no sign of it stopping anytime soon. Small Favor returns Harry Dresden, Chicago's only Wizard to be found in the phonebook against old enemies. He is dropped into the middle of a situation involving both of the courts of the Sidhe and trying to find an abducted crime boss that leads to major concerns for the White Council and humanity as we know it. Jim Butcher has a tremendous hold on his world and he writes supernatural better than most of today's authors. Harry is one of today's best characters in fiction, being able to juggle life threatening occurrences without losing what makes him human. If you like detective novels with a side of magic and supernatural monsters, then Dresden Files was made just for you. Hopefully it will not be such a long time until the next book in the series is released.
