The Dresden Files Series

17 primary works • 54 total works
The Dresden Files are Jim Butcher’s first published series, telling the story of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, Chicago’s first (and only) Wizard P.I.

Note: Each book is its own story with a start and an ending. However, they should be read in order, as each one references previous books heavily.
