Once you finish this series you realize the gulf in class between the first book and every book after the 3rd book in this series

This is my 3rd read and dare I say I am starting to notice the many subtle foreshadowing Butcher did , and I appreciate it more now , having finished the series I still can't believe how good book 4 and thereafter are in this series . Anyways , written below are my exact words from my first time reviewing this book and I think the review was apt then and it is apt now
if you grew up reading a bunch of Batman, Detective Comics , Sherlock Holmes, Hardy Boys & Nancy drew and have a thing for the paranormal and Fantasy than you need to find the time to read this and thank Jim Butcher .
Storm Front is the first of the mightly praised Dresden Files book written by Jim Butcher and it merges two of my favourite Genres Together Fantasy and Mystery and the book does the job very well . The book is fast paced and makes you feel as if you are watching a sort of movie . The book succeeds in keeping you on your toes and guessing what will happen next and makes you really excited all the time as well
However the book has a few shortcomings in itself one of my major gripes with the book was the ending which felt awfully premature . `[ how easily Dresden gets away from the law both human and magical without much of any explanation really turned me off . While the book succeeds with the key ingredient of any mystery novel i.e keeping you excited for the next page , it fails in another key of such mystery novel i.e keep you predicting the mystery end. Same thing goes with Fantasy to me a good fantasy is the fantasy which explains its world properly , Dresdne's world is very poorly explained & the Character development of Susan, Bob, Marcus was seriously lacking . There's another kinda thing that some could find critical is the fact that much of the book feels like Cliche. Personally that has never stopped me from enjoying the book and it didn't stop me this time either but to each his own i guess
So i must say this is a good read and for me inner nerd This Character is brilliant and i can't wait to read furthur
