  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 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.

For some reason I thought The Dresden Files series was YA, and had skimmed past it whenever I saw one of the books on my GR feed. I finally added Storm Front to my want-to-read shelf, then when I saw it available at my local library I thought, "what the heck!" and borrowed it.

I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly entertained! Harry Dresden was just what I needed as relief from some very sad books I've read recently. [a:Jim Butcher|10746|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1400640324p2/10746.jpg]'s writing is excellent, and I loved the humorous asides and cultural references scattered throughout. I've made a paper list of the books in the series so I can check them off when I read them, and I've already borrowed book #2, [b:Fool Moon|91477|Fool Moon (The Dresden Files, #2)|Jim Butcher|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1507307616l/91477._SY75_.jpg|855288].

I hear this series gets good around book 3 or 4 but this story was fairly predictable. ( )
  bangerlm | Jan 18, 2023 |
Very fun and intriguing read. Typical mystery plot, but spiced up with a large dose of wizardry and cynicism. ( )

Happy I read it! I really wasn't sure what to expect when I started listening to Storm Front. I'd heard of the TV show The Dresden Files but never watched an episode or even knew what it was about. I didn't know until recently that the show was based on a series of books. 
 
It wasn't until I saw the newest book by Jim Butcher - a steampunk adventure - that I actually took the time to look him up. I spoke to a few folks about the Dresden series and decided to give the first one a shot. And I'm happy I did.
 
I truly enjoyed the magical aspects of the story and the mystery was pretty good, too. The secondary characters were interesting, although not very fleshed out, and while I didn't like everything about Harry, I found him a believable protagonist with an interesting backstory. 
 
I'm already on the waiting list with my local library for the second audio book. ( )

Reread 2020: Reading the two new Dresden Files books this year inspired a series reread! And who better to read them to me than Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

I’m undecided if I’m totally going for it with this series reread, but I’m on board for a few more books to decide. That’s how long it took me to commit to the series years ago. For the most part, going by my hazy memory of the first time I read it, I liked book 1 more the second time around. I didn’t like how some of the ladies and Harry’s interactions/reactions to them were written. My husband thinks some of the sex pot stuff is in keeping with a noir mystery vibe Butcher was maybe going for. I don’t know. What I do know is I love Harry, I love Butcher, and I love his books (including other series), but there are still moments I intensely dislike, and they usually have something to do with how a female character is being described—especially lately, if it’s Molly or Lara. It’s interesting, and probably worthy of more thought and discussion, that the woman he ends up with is not described (not ever, to my recollection) in a lustful, slobbering kind of way.

Anywayyyy, James Marsters has a great voice for Harry—maybe less so for some of the other characters—but I think he’s a good reader, and I’ll likely continue the reread on audio. ( )

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.
