Butcher, Jim. Storm Front. ROC, 2000.
Harry Dresden is a wizard for hire. He's called in to consult on a case of a double murder, where both victims had their hearts ripped from their chests. He soon realizes that this is the work of a dark wizard, and what's worse, the dark wizard is after Dresden himself. Dresden has to race to find this wizard before it's too late.
I liked this story. I read some less-than-stellar reviews on Amazon where people said this book was too cliched. I don't agree. I enjoyed this story, including the small details like the fact that Dresden's presence causes electrical items to malfunction. I also liked Bob, Dresden's talking skull. I am excited about reading the next book in this series.
