Read for the RIP V Reading Challenge.
Harry Dresden is a wizard, a fully practicing mage, the only one he knows of that actually advertises what he is. He takes the occasional odd job finding missing things, and also occasionally helps out the Chicago police. Storm Front starts out as a number of seemingly unrelated jobs that suddenly come together when Harry finds that someone has been committing some rather inventive magical murders, and he just might be next on the hit list.
I’m feeling weirdly ambivalent about this book, and I can’t put my finger on why. I don’t think I came into the book with many expectations, other than the fact that it had been made into a tv show, and I know people that have enjoyed this series. I can see where it would make a great tv show (and continuing series of books) – Harry’s world has great episodic potential. I just didn’t find myself overly captivated by it. My loss, I suppose. I won’t say I’ll never read another book in the series, just that I won’t necessarily be in a hurry to do so.
