Storm Front is the first book of the Dresden Files. Storm Front follows wizard Harry Dresden when he gets involved in a murder mystery in Chicago that the police is looking in to and asked to investigate the disappearance of a woman’s husband. Someone is using magic to kill which leads Harry in to Chicago’s underworld to catch the killer other wise Harry will be next.
I read Storm Front as an audio book which I rarely do. I’ve just never been a huge fan of audio books and find that narrators can put me off a book I would have otherwise loved. However, James Marsters’ narration of the book is amazing and is what really pulled me in and caused me to finish the book.
The Dresden Files is a series that I’ve heard of for years but never really considered reading until I heard that James Marsters did the audio books. Storm Front is pretty much a murder mystery novel with some magic and supernatural elements thrown in. Thought well written by Jim Butcher I never felt very invested in the story or the characters. It wasn’t until very close to the end of the book that I actually even wanted to finish it. So, I’m not sure if I will continue on with this series as the story was okay but I don’t really feel a need to know what happens in the rest of the books. 3/5 stars.
