The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

Harry Dresden: When you look this badass, giving a werewolf a flea collar becomes funny.I bought the 14 books of the Dresden Files from Audible.com and listened to them using the Audible iPhone app and my iPhone.

I ran out of books in my waiting list and decided it was time to re-listen to all of the Dresden Files books, one after the other as quickly as time would allow.

What a ride. Taking the series in like this was great, it was like having one extremely large book to listen to with no interruptions. Butcher has created a universe and characters that I will never forget.

The 14 books are not of equal quality, but all of them are very good with a few of them rising to real greatness.

The audiobooks are narrated by James Marsters, with one glaring exception, and now when I read a printed book I hear all of the characters, as they are portrayed by Marsters. James Marsters IS Harry Dresden!

"Ghost Story: Book 13" is narrated by John Glover, he does an admirable job, but he sounds to much like the guy who used to narrate the Disney movies trying to be something that he isn’t. I hope one day Marsters is able to re-record the book as it should have been done in the first place.

I look forward to reading another 14 books in the Dresden Files and hope that they come quick!

From Wikipedia:

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a fictional detective and wizard. He was created by Jim Butcher and is the protagonist of the contemporary fantasy series The Dresden Files. The series blends magic and hardboiled detective fiction. In addition to the fourteen The Dresden Files novels, he has appeared in five published short stories and several unpublished short stories, as well as a limited series comic and an unlimited series comic. He was also adapted into a character by the same name for the TV series version of the novel series, also called The Dresden Files.

I rate the first 14 books in the series as a 9 and recommend them to ANYONE!
Storm Front, the first in the series, is a masterpiece.
