I borrowed this book from the Boyfriend.
The Boyfriend had been trying to convince me to start the Dresden Files for almost as long as we’ve known each other. I kept putting it off to read other books because I was afraid I might not like it, and it happens to be the Boyfriend’s all-time favorite series. Then I watched the Boyfriend devour the latest book, Skin Game, in a day, which I had never seen him do with any other book. So, I decided that I needed to know what was so great about it that the Boyfriend would spend more time reading than playing video games.
As I opened the cover, I happened to glance at one of the quotes in the praise section, which mentioned that lover’s of the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton would love this series too. That piqued my interest more since I do love Hamilton’s books. While I didn’t finish Storm Front in a day, that’s not for lack of trying. Life got in the way. Don’t you hate it when that happens?! I finished it in three days, and I now know that the Dresden Files will be one of my go-tos when I hit a reading slump. I’ve already got a bookmark in the second book, Fool Moon, but I’ve been forcing myself to wait until I could find the time to write this review as well as try to finish up some of the other books I was already in the middle of reading; otherwise, I might not ever finish them, and this blog would turn into a Dresden Files fan page. Don’t worry, I won’t let that happen, no matter how much love I have for the books.
Now that the Boyfriend and I have something else to geek out about together, it’s a priority of mine to get everyone else to do the same. Please, PLEASE, give Storm Front a chance. I’m sure you can find it at your local public library, and if you love Urban Fantasy or the Anita Blake series, you’ll enjoy reading about Harry Dresden’s adventures.
