Finished the first Dresden Files book, Storm Front, by Jim Butcher. I enjoyed that - not as revolutionary as I expected from a series with such a good rep among genre fans, but a good mix of the sort of blend of genres I expected, and yet somehow being a little offbeat and original. I like the humour in it, and the magic system is pretty good. I also thought it did a great job of introducing everything in such a way that the reader feels they're revisiting something they're already into- there's just the right balance to the background that it doesn't feel like infodumping new concepts. Very well done in that regard. The plot wasn't that challenging, but just right to draw the reader in and get them hooked - which it has done, cos I now definitely intend to continue with the series!
