  1. 181
    Luna Llena / Fool Moon (The Dresden Files) (Spanish Edition) por Jim Butcher (Siesser)
  2. 130
    Nocturnia por Simon R. Green (amberwitch, plutoempress, lookitisheef, DovSherman)
    amberwitch: A tough P.I. with a number of convenient talents making a living and trying to uncover the secrets of his own origin in the magical Nightside of London.
    plutoempress: similar style, though i (and this is my opinion) find john taylor funnier than harry dresden.
    lookitisheef: Jim Butcher and Simon R. Green both have created great supernatural male-lead detective series. I think they provide a nice balance to the girls-kick-butt series out there...don't get me wrong, I love the work of Kim Harrison and Laurell K. Hamilton (to name a couple), but it's nice to see that authors can create plausible male leads in the supernatural fiction world, too.… (más)
  3. 130
    Rivers of London por Ben Aaronovitch (majkia)
    majkia: both involve paranormal mystery and smart-ass dialog.
  4. 110
    Acosado por Kevin Hearne (clif_hiker, al.vick)
  5. 113
    Bruja mala nunca muere por Kim Harrison (cjacklen)
    cjacklen: A crime-fighting witch quits her job to become a PI. Faster pace and more addictive than than "Storm Front".
  6. 125
    Neverwhere por Neil Gaiman (Polenth)
  7. 71
    The Man With The Golden Torc por Simon R. Green (dmacmillan, Scottneumann)
    dmacmillan: Similar in tone to Butcher's Dresden Files but bigger in scope and with perhaps an even wilder storyline.
  8. 71
    Guardianes De La Noche por Sergei Lukyanenko (FFortuna)
  9. 30
    Nightlife por Rob Thurman (gluestick)
    gluestick: Brothers Cal & Niko Leandros battle monsters while on the run from Auphe.Doesn't help that Cal is half Auphe.
  10. 30
    Libriomancer por Jim C. Hines (kqueue)
    kqueue: I found many similarities between Isaac Vainio and Harry Dresden. Both are cynical, powerful, heroes with a dark sense of humor, who are on the fringes of their official organization but are called in to save the day. Both books feature many mythical creatures, and have a good versus evil theme in a fast-paced adventure.… (más)
  11. 30
    Thicker Than Water (Felix Castor) por Mike Carey (BeckyJG)
  12. 30
    Fábulas leyendas en el exilio por Bill Willingham (FFortuna)
  13. 31
    El Diablo que ya conoces por Mike Carey (amberwitch, TheLibraryhag)
    amberwitch: Same noir feel, more interesting first person narrator. Lovely London descriptions.
  14. 31
    A Madness of Angels por Kate Griffin (amberwitch, questionablepotato, mysterymax)
    mysterymax: Anyone who enjoys the Dresden File series would, I think enjoy the Matthew Swift books.
  15. 20
    John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits por Garth Ennis (Cynara)
    Cynara: I think Harry Dresden may be a distant, nicer relation of Hellblazer's John Constantine.
  16. 20
    The Tomb por F. Paul Wilson (Scottneumann)
  17. 20
    Monster por A. Lee Martinez (smammers)
    smammers: If you enjoy urban fantasy with a healthy dose of sarcastic humor thrown in, you'll love these books!
  18. 20
    Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman por Jim Bernheimer (enrique_molinero, gluestick)
    gluestick: Lone wolf hero.After coming back from Iraq and getting a donor eye he starts seeing ghosts. Next best thing while waiting for the newest Dresden files book.

Meet Harry Dresden-Wizard extraordinaire, Paranormal PI and all around nice guy. I liked Harry, but I did not fall in love with him. *Sigh* I wanted to.

This is a first book in a series, taking place in Chicago. Harry works as a "For Hire Gumshoe" and a consultant for the Chicago PD. In this first case of the series, there is Black Magic stewing in the city and Harry means to find the source and stop it.

Urban Fantasy is not my favorite genre, but this one called to me. It was fun, but in places Butcher got way too wordy for me. When that happens The stars I give start getting knocked down. I plan to continue the series, I just won't be jumping on it right away. It was good for me Harry, just not great. ( )

I read this over the weekend expecting a quick, pulp fiction read; surprisingly it was not. I found it to be a very good mystery book with a gritty protagonist who just happens to be a very powerful (if somewhat rebellious) wizard. Of course, there were a few sardonic situations that were darkly humorous, but that really did add to the developing tension in the story. In addition, the system of magic used was very well developed and would be at home in any occult thriller ... In fact, I frequently found myself nodding at some descriptive line of text thinking that it made perfect sense. On the down-side ... I pretty much figured out the who-done-it early on (there were too few characters to choose from really), but there were enough surprises after that to keep it interesting. I am looking forward to the next book in the series ... ( )

I'm so happy to have finally started this series! There were several books on the TBR list when I got the first nine Dresden Files books, but everything else can wait - I've been wanting to read these since 2007.

One book into the series, I'm not disappointed. I love Harry Dresden and his world. Jim Butcher gave life to a great character. When I finished this last night, I went straight into the next book in the series, but I forced myself to go to bed after a few pages.

I thought the actor/narrator did a great job. I felt he really added extra depth to the character with the sighing and hesitations etc. in the narration. (I see people don't agree with me in some reviews)

The 2nd in the series is not available to me on audiobook. I saw in some reviews that the 2nd & 3rd book aren't the best in the series. For those 2 reasons I won't be reading/listening to the next in the series.
-------------

I had taken a call while listening to this book and when I was done with the call I guess we didn't hang up and they got to listen to the "large scorpion in the elevator" scene. They told me later that they heard it as they looked at me funny. They acted as though I was quite odd. Like they caught me doing something questionable. haha nope just listening to a book. *shrugs* ( )

Storm Front's premise is pretty slim.. But Butcher makes it work, through a combination of interesting characters, tight plotting, and fresh, breezy writing. This is definitely not deep reading, but it is a whole lot of fun.

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.
"An actual wizard?" he asked, grinning, as though I should let him in on the joke. "Spells and potions? Demons and incantations? Subtle and quick to anger?"
"Not so subtle."
I realized he'd been giving me CPR. Eww.
