Review: Storm Front

fungrimfungrim

Storm Front
Storm Front by Jim Butcher

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wanted something quick and easy to finish the summer vacation with. Lacking a new Pratchett I remembered the Dresden files. And I’m glad I did.

We’re presented with nothing new in this book. Being published in 2000 you could for example, expect a more modern interpretation of magic; the old life-force/strength-of-faith thing feels a bit, well, old. But then again, that’s perhaps not the right focus for this series.

The book moves a long at a good speed, and the pacing feels just right. No dull moments, but not rushed either. And a perfect length for this kind of book. I confess that I read the whole of it in one day.

All in all I’m happy and will without question read the entire series. Wise-cracking wizard PI in Chicago battling all kinds of demons, vampires and werewolves? Sure, I’m in! 7 out of 10.
