Excellent!! I enjoyed this one even more than the first one in the series. Harry Dresden and werewolves, what more could you ask for.
Non stop action and lots of excitement. We learn a little more about Harry and see more interaction between him and Murphy. Looking forward to reading more!
As a fantasy fan for over 50 years, I have to recommend ALL the books in this series. But, be sure to read them in order or you will not understand all that is going on. Truly the VERY BEST fantasy series I have ever read!
I really liked this book, even better than the first one. I think Harry's character is endearing to both men and women alike so I just recently started my husband on this series with Storm Front since I believe he prefers a male lead. That said, many male leads are often indifferent or unemotional like so many men are, but Harry allows you to see his softer side at times too, beneath his tough outside exterior. Because every good guy has a good heart. :)
This book centers around werewolves and their various forms, and as Harry enters into a battle with the supernatural creatures, all the aspects of his personna are stretched and put to the test, including again, his friendship with Murphy, which still hadn't fully recovered from the last episode. Susan is back and Harry looks deeper at his feelings for her, especially when their lives are threatened and they're clinging to each other on what might be their last night alive.
Fun, fun series - Sam Spade meets Harry Potter vs. the FBI. This book shapes up better than the first in terms of character development and is long on action as well with a variety of types of werewolves, lycanthropes, etc. ripping through the landscape.
I am addicted to this series! A good combination of supernatural and "Film Noir." A kind of Raymond Chandler meets Cliver Barker. Harry Dresden is a Philip Marlowe of the Nevernever.
