Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Storm Front by Jim Butcher: Urban fantasy is so chock full of paranormal detectives it’s practically a cliche. But just because the premise has been done before doesn’t mean the story has to be predictable. I admit that I wasn’t too impressed with Harry Dresden at first; he too closely resembled the ideal geeky males strive for – mysterious, chivalrous, attractive, powerful, dangerous, even wearing a black duster! – that I worried I was dealing with a Gary Stu. Luckily, it didn’t take long for Harry to show his true colors and to win my affection. I loved the nonstop action, bizarre (and yet thoroughly consistent) magic system, and Harry’s sarcastic commentary. I almost wish I hadn’t read this because there are more than a dozen books in the series so far and my to-be-read pile is already threatening avalanche. Definitely recommended if you’re looking for a fun ride.
