Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out that 'everyday' world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in.

Harry is the best at what he does - and not just because he's the only one who does it. So whenever the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal capabilities, they look to him for answers. But business isn't just slow, it 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.

I first read this book back in 2018 and although I posted my review on Goodreads and Amazon, I hadn’t shared it on my blog.

💚🐰💚🐥💚 Happy Easter Weekend! 💚🐰💚🐥💚

I hope you’re staying safe and healthy and enjoying the long weekend, despite not being able to do the usual holiday activities.

This year, as you may know, I set myself the long-overdue challenge of actually finishing some series! 😉 I’m linking up to the 2020 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge. Check out my progress here.

So, what did I think about Storm Front?

A Gripping Start To A Series – I Can’t Wait To Read More!

Jim Butcher is a new-to-me author that I have heard lots about, with many friends recommending the series. I’m glad that I finally got around to downloading this book. I also upgraded to the narration version too and alternated between reading my Kindle and listening to James Marsters’ narration.

I really enjoyed this story. It was a good balance of mystery, thriller, crime, detective, horror and raw emotion. However but with a dry humour running throughout that kept it from being too heavy. I loved James Marsters performance and felt it did the book justice.

I will definitely be adding the rest of the books in this series to my wish list.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my thoughts. I hope I’ve sparked your interest and that you add this one to your towering TBR piles. 😉

Bye for now,

About Me

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -
