Great Book Review

I was just about to shut down my computer and stumble off to bed when a Google Alert landed in my inbox. It included this link to blogger Kirk L. Shaw's review of the book Storm Front by Jim Butcher.

Jim Butcher is the incredible mind (and pen) behind The Dresden Files series. I've been wanting to read this series ever since the TV show first aired.

And let the record show that I'm still royally cheesed about The Dresden Files vanishing from the airwaves without a trace (like every other brilliant Sci-Fi TV show in the past decade). It will no doubt end up being labeled a one-season wonder, but that one season was enough to sear a wizard's mark on my heart.

Sutragirl enthusiastically endorsed the novels and I have greatly enjoyed every book she or snolan (her husband) have recommended. I need to read it. Mother's Day is coming up soon. I think Storm Front would make a terrific gift. (Hint, hint)

I'm too busy chasing after my almost-14-month-old to delve into inspired debate, but I'd love to hear from folks who read the book(s) and want to share why they liked or disliked it (them).

And while I'm dreaming impossible dreams, wouldn't it be awesome if Jim Butcher left a comment about writing the books? *sigh* That would be incredible.

Jim, if you're out there, I invite you to share your thoughts on the TV show and/or the books!
