Not exactly what I expected but not in a bad way. I've seen the tv series before I read the book, so that probably tainted my perception. Especially for Murphy, I really had a hard time imagining her as a blond. But the story is interesting and kept me reading. I like the internal war inside Harry between doing what's right and what's wrong and walking the thin line in between. I liked the magic background except for Bob because again of the tv series, I mean Terence Mann is Bob. Not a non corporal spirit in a skull. But I'll read the next one in the series for sure.
