Storm Front Audio Book Written By Jim Butcher Narrated By James Marsters (Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel) My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. I'm a wizard. I work out of an office in midtown Chicago. As far as I know, I'm the only openly practicing professional wizard in the country. You can find me in the yellow pages, under Wizards. Believe it or not, I'm the only one there. My ad looks like this: HARRY DRESDEN--WIZARD Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties or Other Entertainment With rent past due and a decent meal becoming an issue of some importance, Harry needs work, and soon. A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters to vampires, while he himself is under suspicion of the crimes. One thing is certain, if he can't stop whoever is on this killing spree, Harry will be the next victim.

When the murderer was revealed, I just shrugged as there was no investment for me. There was not enough ex...
I really enjoyed this book. The lead is really likable. He has cool powers, but he isn't all full of himself because of it. He knows he isn't the toughest thing around. I understood the world easily. The details were woven into the storyline well. I didn't feel lost or bored by too much backgr...
Philip Marlowe pastiche mixed with what the author himself says is a hodge-podge of genuine magical practices mixed together. This is unfortunate because hard-boiled detectives are not terribly interesting these days unless they bring something new to the game. It was obvious that the new thing was ...
Okay, I know myself well enough that I'm pretty incapable of critical thought when it comes to The Dresden Files -- which is not to say I think the books (especially this one) are perfect, but I can overlook all the flaws -- and those I can't I can shrug off. It's been years -- almost a decad...
