A modern-day mage and consultant to the police finds his stale life suddenly enlivened by the presence of a rival in the black arts.
  1. 191
    Fool Moon de Jim Butcher (Siesser)
  2. 140
    Something from the Nightside de Simon R. Green (amberwitch, plutoempress, lookitisheef, DovSherman)
    amberwitch: A tough P.I. with a number of convenient talents making a living and trying to uncover the secrets of his own origin in the magical Nightside of London.
    plutoempress: similar style, though i (and this is my opinion) find john taylor funnier than harry dresden.
    lookitisheef: Jim Butcher and Simon R. Green both have created great supernatural male-lead detective series. I think they provide a nice balance to the girls-kick-butt series out there...don't get me wrong, I love the work of Kim Harrison and Laurell K. Hamilton (to name a couple), but it's nice to see that authors can create plausible male leads in the supernatural fiction world, too.… (més)
  3. 150
    Rivers of London de Ben Aaronovitch (majkia)
    majkia: both involve paranormal mystery and smart-ass dialog.
  4. 110
    Hounded de Kevin Hearne (clif_hiker, al.vick)
  5. 113
    Dead Witch Walking de Kim Harrison (cjacklen)
    cjacklen: A crime-fighting witch quits her job to become a PI. Faster pace and more addictive than than "Storm Front".
  6. 125
    Neverwhere de Neil Gaiman (Polenth)
  7. 71
    The Man With The Golden Torc de Simon R. Green (dmacmillan, Scottneumann)
    dmacmillan: Similar in tone to Butcher's Dresden Files but bigger in scope and with perhaps an even wilder storyline.
  8. 71
    Night Watch de Sergei Lukyanenko (FFortuna)
  9. 30
    Nightlife de Rob Thurman (gluestick)
    gluestick: Brothers Cal & Niko Leandros battle monsters while on the run from Auphe.Doesn't help that Cal is half Auphe.
  10. 30
    Libriomancer de Jim C. Hines (kqueue)
    kqueue: I found many similarities between Isaac Vainio and Harry Dresden. Both are cynical, powerful, heroes with a dark sense of humor, who are on the fringes of their official organization but are called in to save the day. Both books feature many mythical creatures, and have a good versus evil theme in a fast-paced adventure.… (més)
  11. 30
    Thicker Than Water (Felix Castor) de Mike Carey (BeckyJG)
  12. 30
    Fables, Vol. 01: Legends in Exile de Bill Willingham (FFortuna)
  13. 31
    The Devil You Know de Mike Carey (amberwitch, TheLibraryhag)
    amberwitch: Same noir feel, more interesting first person narrator. Lovely London descriptions.
  14. 31
    A Madness of Angels de Kate Griffin (amberwitch, questionablepotato, mysterymax)
    mysterymax: Anyone who enjoys the Dresden File series would, I think enjoy the Matthew Swift books.
  15. 20
    John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits de Garth Ennis (Cynara)
    Cynara: I think Harry Dresden may be a distant, nicer relation of Hellblazer's John Constantine.
  16. 20
    The Tomb de F. Paul Wilson (Scottneumann)
  17. 20
    Monster de A. Lee Martinez (smammers)
    smammers: If you enjoy urban fantasy with a healthy dose of sarcastic humor thrown in, you'll love these books!
  18. 20
    Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman de Jim Bernheimer (enrique_molinero, gluestick)
    gluestick: Lone wolf hero.After coming back from Iraq and getting a donor eye he starts seeing ghosts. Next best thing while waiting for the newest Dresden files book.
  19. 20
    Unshapely Things de Mark Del Franco (MyriadBooks)
  20. 20
    Sweet Silver Blues de Glen Cook (MyriadBooks)

I really enjoyed this book, despite its occasional overdramaticism. It had some really memorable quotes, and I will definetly be reading the rest. I confess that I watched the TV show first, but the book is obviously and entirely better. ( )

It's my second time listening to this audiobook.
It's a great introduction to Dresden's world. We get shown the basics as the story progresses and yet, it leaves enough out to make you want to learn more about the White Council, wizards and other creatures to come back for another book.
The particular mystery concerning this book was great too. Upon rereading I can see all the little clues and foreshadowing and it still holds up great.
Last, but not least, I love Marsters narration. I could listen to him read books all day long and I wouldn't get bored or tired. He really brings Harry to life. ( )

It's an interesting story with some charismatic characters.
Was it mindblowing? No, but it kept me company while I was doing stuff, so that's that.
Can't say I enjoyed many of the characters, some are written to be disliked and that is quite obvious, others are written to be liked or sympathetic and I found myself disliking them all the same.

So, if you want a fun ride on the urban fantasy bus, this one satisfies. ( )

this book is ok, not like super duper, just ok.

this is another book that reminds me of Discworld's Watch series, because again, its a sort of cop on a fantasy setting, well a private investigator... so yeah, its fun, its ok, its a good entry point to a serie

:) lets hope the other books are ok too :D ( )

I watched the tv adaptation of this series years ago and enjoyed it, so when I heard this book recommended for its audiobook narration I figured it was time for me to check it out. Unfortunately it did not stand up to my expectations, making this one of those rare exceptions where the movie (or in this case tv show) actually is better than the book.

The story was interesting enough and I liked the magic system and mythology in place within the book, and I dont have any complaints about the audio narration, but the way the author describes and talks about women is pretty gross. Its not outright sexism in the "men are superior" sense, but the way women are continuously described in relation to their bodies and sexuality is objectifying and dehumanizing. Add to that the graphic deaths of multiple queer women and derogatory references to sex workers and Im outta there. I finished the book but will not be continuing the series.

Storm Front's premise is pretty slim.. But Butcher makes it work, through a combination of interesting characters, tight plotting, and fresh, breezy writing. This is definitely not deep reading, but it is a whole lot of fun.

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.
"An actual wizard?" he asked, grinning, as though I should let him in on the joke. "Spells and potions? Demons and incantations? Subtle and quick to anger?"
"Not so subtle."
I realized he'd been giving me CPR. Eww.
