The Dresden Files are a series of urban fantasy novels by the author Jim Butcher and star the Chicago private detective and modern day wizard Harry Dresden.

A balance of fantasy and hard-boiled detective fiction told from the first person, the series has been a considerable success and even became a (short lived and pretty terrible) TV series in 2007.

The book series is one of the easiest-reading you will find anywhere and gets better and better the further you delve into the world of Harry Dresden.
