Review: Storm Front

Storm Front
Storm Front by Jim Butcher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I will admit now that the Dresden Files is my secret shameful joy. I love good light action adventure reading. I’ve read a bunch of them before and only partly read #1. So when I saw this on my kindle reading list I bought it …. and devoured it.
This story introduces you to Harry Dresden, professional wizard. It’s a fun book that reminds you of where Harry came from if you’ve read later ones. I love re-examining older entries in series I enjoy.
I also was reading for purely professional reasons as I like Jim’s first person style and wanted to immerse myself in it before embarking on a first person horror narrative of my own. I don’t want to emulate his style but the feel of it puts my brain close to where I want the voice in my novel to be.
Anyway, its a fun tale of mystery, danger, murder and magic – read it if you already haven’t.
