The Dresden Files
by Jim Butcher

I can definitely see why Jim Butcher is considered a staple in the Urban Fantasy genre – he has an excellent main character (who is a tad whiny at times, but that’s kind of why I like him), loads of paranormal that will continually ding your creep-o-meter (even though I admit it doesn’t take much to set mine off), and plenty of action, humor, and intrigue. 762 more words

Fool Moon--Jim Butcher

My brother implored me to keep reading this series, but I really don’t think it’s for me. It’s slow going and even though Harry Dresden is a decent character who is real during supernatural situations, something is missing from it and I can’t place my finger on it. 64 more words
