It could be really nice, but I found it extremely juvenile... And I have read Meg Cabot before and really enjoyed her stories, regardless of the preferred demographic.

I am going to be bias, as I am a huge fan of Jim Butcher.
James Marsters really brings the character to life and makes the book and story alive.

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.
