Storm Front by Jim Butcher

      No Comments on Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Since today is Halloween The first of the Dresden Files, Storm Front is a great introduction to the lead character (Harry) and several of the major players through the series.

Well, after the rush of Monster Hunter International, I jumped right in to Monster Hunter Vendetta. Wow. Okay, as before, the Good/Bad/Ugly. Good As before, the book in non-stop action.
