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 of them don't play too 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 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.
Storm Front (2000)
The Dresden Files - Book One
Roc fantasy paperback
my rating : 6.5/10
In my opinion, Storm Front shows potential and has its moments. But the writing and storytelling is somewhat clumsy. I believe this is Jim Butcher's first novel. I can almost, but not quite, recommend this book. I've been told that Dresden Files series, which is lengthy, improves greatly in the subsequent books.
