What can I say, The Dresden files has it all. Easily one of the best series I know with great characters, outstanding action, twisted and amusing plots, and more good and bad humor than you can shake a stick at. This version has enough of the books to really get you started!

If I could give a 1/2 a star I would have rated this a 4 1/2. Not for the stories but for the fact that the bundle costs more than the individual books do. Still a nice way to have all the books in one place. The Dresden Files are a fun read with surprises at every turn. The stories get better with each new book. A compelling and unique world blending supernatural with the everyday.

I'm a big fan of the series, but prices like these are insulting. Interestingly, if you're in the kindle store, you can't find the paper back used price, but each paper back is about $4.50 used including delivery from the store. Alternately, you can usually find these at the goodwill store for about $0.50 each. Plus, they're at the library. You know who has intelligent pricing for ebooks? Baen Books. Check out their Webscriptions website and you can find the backissues of entire series (like the Honor Harrington or Miles Vorkosigan series) for free or at very low prices. I hope the Baen model buries thieves like Penguin/ROC.
Proven Guilty (The Dresden Files, Book 8) :: Shadowed Souls :: A Fragment of Life (The Dresden Files Box-Set) - The Dresden Files Collection 7-12 :: Moon Tortured (Sky Brooks Series Book 1) :: Books 1-4 (Bill The Vampire - The Mourning Woods

The story and universe created in the Dresden Files is excellent and well thought out. When new characters and creatures enter the story, they do not contradict previous principles of the fictitious universe which is often frustrating in books of this genre. Additionally, when the protagonist inevitably makes mistakes, they are believable and were not foreseeable by the reader well in advance. These things coupled with very compelling plot lines make the Dresden Files an excellent read.

I love the Dresden series. When I got my Kindle I bought the Dresden files, book by book (or should I say, Kindle by Kindle). Except - I couldn't get book 3 - Grave Peril. For some reason, the Kindle version is unavailable to Canadians. So now I am faced with buying 5 books again to get one book. Not fair. I thought I would return my previous purchases but I don't qualify as they have to be returned within 7 days. Why me?

Love the books and thought the anthology would be a cheap buy for my new Kindle since these are old books. Wrong! What an absolute rip off.

Good to see that the price seems to have gone up even more since I last looked. I guess Jim Butcher is just sitting back counting his millions while writing increasingly bad new books.

Love the series, love the hardbacks, wanted to reread the series for vacation but didn't want to haul all the books. Looked at putting them in my Kindle....but the cost ! Talked myself out of the ebooks. Is this really the response the publisher wants ? djg

Currently each of the Dresden files books are $7.99 each or $48 for all. As we know Kindle does a terrible job with compilations, so getting each book individually is a much better solution. Why buy this "deal"? Makes no sense.

Butcher has so much fun with these characters. I enjoy the silliness if it all and how he plays with language. It's also refreshing how the good guys (especially Harry [Barry, Larry...?] Dresden) don't take themselves too seriously. Another fun read!

I've read all the Dresden files so far and enjoyed them. I can't wait for Ghost Story, the next one coming out in a few weeks. Now that I have a kindle I really wanted to get the set but there's no way I can afford the current $60 price!

I looked and I can actually buy the paperbacks and have them shipped to my house via the store Prime for around 1$ LESS per book than buying this e-book combo.
I can buy them almost 2$ each cheaper at the book store in town- new in paperback.
Is this e-book a secret intelligence test ? Hint: If you buy the e-book, you failed.

Are the publishers trying to kill ebooks? When the book is available in paperback the ebook price should change to reflect that. Even if you bought all six books separately, the price is 59.94 so this is insane and someone should be flogged.

I have the paperbacks and was looking to get digital versions. Saw this and was honestly surprised that one could pay more for a bulk item then individual items bought separately. The publisher should change this. Since it's all about the "collection" presentation, that's what I'm rating, not the content.

I've read both popular series' by Jim Butcher and although the codex alera series was a good series, this series totally engrosses me. I LOVE the main character, he's so noble! Definitely worth buying and reading!
