Storm Front is book one in The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
I had my first taste of Harry and The Dresden Files series, when I read a novella in an anthology. My interest got piqued and I’m finally picking up the books.
I enjoyed learning about Harry and having the story in his POV. Having a wizard and male protagonists was unique. It’s not common in Urban Fantasy and this was my first taste of this. The murder mystery was fascinating and became a catch twenty-two for Harry. The magic and world building shows promise, but I felt a little lost at times and some areas needed more explaining and development.
We get some secondary characters like Murphy the detective and Susan the reporter. I liked Murphy, but didn’t like Susan.
This story is fresh and unique even with it being an older series. That’s saying something about the series and world. I’m glad I’m finally trying this one out and I’m look forward to the next adventure with Harry.
