Paranormal | Suspense
Filled with "kick-ass adventure and supernatural fireworks"
(SF Site), Jim Butcher's Dresden Files novels have been
compared to Harry Potter with "an adult tone and attitude"
[The News-Star]. Now, Harry Dresden must save Chicago from
black magic and necromancy--all in a day's work for the
city's only professional wizard.
There's an entire world that exists alongside the everyday
life of mankind. There are powers, nations, monsters, wars,
feuds, alliances--everything. Wizards are a part of it. So
are a lot of other things you've heard about in stories, and
even more you've never heard of...Vampires. Werewolves.
Faeries. Demons. Monsters. It's all real.
Harry Dresden knows full well that such creatures exist.
Paranormal investigations are his stock in trade and Chicago
is his beat as he tries to bring law and order to a world
that exists on the edges of imagination. Luckily Harry's not
alone in this struggle. And though most inhabitants of the
Windy City don't believe in magic, there's a department
that's been set up within the Chicago PD to deal with the
"strange" cases: the Special Investigations department.
Karrin Murphy is the head of SI and a good friend of
Harry's. So when a deadly vampire threatens to destroy
Murphy's reputation unless Harry helps her, he has no
choice. The vampire wants the Word of Kemmler and all the
power that comes with it-- but first Harry has to determine
what the Word of Kemmler is. Now Harry is in a race against
time--and six necromancers--to find the Word before Chicago
experiences a Halloween night to wake the dead...
