............because your next Dresden book comes out AFTER my birthday.  I'm out of ideas now for what my family can get me.  In other news, people should read the series.  It's the adult version of Harry Potter...but with more guns and a better main character.  -runs before she's killed-

READ THE QUOTES DAMMIT

"Holy shit," I breathed. "Hellhounds."
"Harry," Michael said sternly. "You know I hate it when you swear."
"You're right. Sorry. Holy shit," I breathed, "heckhounds."

"So we get a plan," I said. "Any suggestions?"
"Blow up the building," Kincaid said without looking up. "That works good for vampires. Then soak what's left in gasoline. Set it on fire. Then blow it all up again."
"For future reference, I was sort of hoping for a suggestion that didn't sound like it came from that Bolshevik Muppet with all the dynamite."

    * "I want to be stepped on by an elephant, while having sex with identical triplet cheerleaders."
    -Harry Dresden- While discussing death with Injun Joe.

"The building was one fire. And for once it wasn't my fault."

“Ha-ha! Ah-hahahaha! I am wizard; hear me roar!”

"I love being a wizard. Every day is like Disneyland."

"I still can't believe," Michael said, sotto voce, "that you came to the Vampires' Masquerade Ball dressed as a vampire."
"Not just a vampire," I said, "a cheesy vampire. Do you think they got the point?"

"Do all wizards," he said, "get the kiddie crowns and wear them
around? Or is that only for special occasions?"

“Leaping tall buildings in a single bound. I should probably put on some underwear.”

"Is that a puppy in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?"

"Who the hell are you?"
"I the hell am harry"

"Hey!" I protested. "Are you selllng me on eBay?"

"I watched as she put the phone down and casually let the nightgown fall to the floor.  I watched a little more.  I wasn't being a peeping Tom.  This was professional.  I noted that she had some intriguing curves.  See?  Professionalism in action."

“I’ve narrowed it down.” Bob said.
“How narrow?”
“Uh.” the skull said. “It isn’t in any of the strip clubs.”
“Bob!” I demanded. “You were running around strip joints all day?”

"Monday afternoon I got the Blue Beetle back from my mechanic, Mike, who is the automative repair equivalent of Jesus Christ himself. Either that or Dr. Frankenstein."

"It turns out that Molly wasn't her mother's daughter in that respect.  Charity was like the MacGyver of the kitchen.  She could whip up a five course meal for twelve from an egg, two spaghetti noodles, some household chemicals, and a stick of chewing gum.  Molly. . .
              Molly once burned my egg.  My boiled egg.  I don't know how. "

"I stretched out my hand, adrenaline and pain giving me plenty of fuel for the magic, and called "Ventas servitas!" Wind leapt out in a sudden spurt, seizing the Unraveling and tearing it from Aurora's fingers, sending it spinning through the air towards me. I caught it, stuck my tongue out at Aurora, yelled, "Meep meep!" and ran like hell."

And the best opening book quote:
"I answered it and Morgan, half his face covered in blood, gasped 'The Wardens are coming. Hide me. Please.' His eyes rolled back into his skull and he collapsed.
Oh.
Super."

XD Yep, it's called "Ghost Story". I would die if that's how Butcher decided to end the series. I happen to stalk his personal website/have a friend who's fanatical about his books as I am so we keep eachother updated. Here: [link]

You could help a sistah out and tell her which book to start with? I'm tired of sitting on my ass at the computer all day and I need to read books again. I have a magazine on my desk and I think I forgot how to turn pages.

WAAAAAAARDENS! IN THE DUNGEON! WARDENS IN THE DUNGEON! :XD:

Though, from what those quotes tell me, the tv show naturally doesn't do it justice.
