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

book cover for The Dresden Files 1 - Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Hello Avid Readers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Storm Front by Jim Butcher. The first book that kicks off his bestselling urban fantasy series, The Dresden Files. 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.

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

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago’s first (and only) Wizard P.I.

Turns out the ‘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’s business as a private investigator has been quiet lately – so when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, he’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.
Magic – it can get a guy killed.

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.

Buy STORM FRONT (or read the whole series) in print, audio and eBook formats through the usual sources including:

Amazon UK ¦ Amazon US ¦ Audible ¦ Book Depository ¦ Waterstones ¦ Foyles
