Storm Front

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.
