Chicago’s only wizard, Harry Dresden needs some jobs or he’s going to be even skinnier than he already is. When he steps in as a special consultant on one of Murphy’s cases, he thinks he’s dealing with a werewolf. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more going on than Harry knows, but he’s about to find out.

Book 2 still has the kids loving Harry and his world. A in particular likes the descriptions on how to make potions and the explanations of the various types of werewolves. They like the new characters of Tera, MacFinn and the Alphas.  They did not like the FBI agents and thought Agent Benn was particularly creepy.

They really liked the whole scene in the jail when the loup garou (MacFinn) goes nuts and escapes while Harry tries to fight him. Again the humor throughout the book is a big hit and Harry’s use of magic is considered extremely cool.

Favorite quote: “Don’t mess with a wizard when he’s wizarding!”

Book 3, Grave Peril, here we come!

  5. So, I've never read the books, but I did watch the short lived TV series and liked it a lot. I should grab the first book sometime.
