Review: Storm Front (The Dresden Files #1) by Jim Butcher




Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things—and most don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a—well, whatever. There’s just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks.

So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name. And that’s when things start to get interesting.

Magic – it can get a guy killed.

I have heard so many good things and been told to start this series so many time and I FINALLY did. The only thing I can say about that is, “why have I not read it earlier”.

I loved everything about this book and world. I loved Harry, I loved his PI business. I loved the world and the magic system, the writing them humor just everything about it.

The world a little bit reminded me of Kim Harrison’s Hollows series, just a little in a good way, but it still was very different, and fresh.

I liked we get a bit if mystery, mixed with magic, and humor and a bit of smut inn a different kind of way.

As mentioned I liked the magic system in this book and Im looking very much forward to see how much more there is.

Harry, I don’t know what else to say about him but that I loved him, his character and humor but loyalties to people. But also that he has flaws and is a bit complicated. I can’t wait to learn more about him and see what he can do.

One of my favorite parts was Bob the skull, not sure why but I thought it was brilliant funny and a bit unique.

While this book was defiantly an introduction into this world and the characters, it was super fun and enjoyable.

I for one am hooked and can’t wait to dive into the second book.

I listened to the audio book that was narrated by James Marsters who did an outstanding job. I loved every minute of it.

I rate this book 5★  I could have rated it lower but it was a five star for me at the time and it pulled me out of a slump which is always great.
