Today's Tuesday Teaser is another book recommended by a work colleague, and unlike anything I've read before.
Author: Jim Butcher
Have you ever been approached by a grim-looking man, carrying a naked sword with a blade about ten miles long in his hand, in the middle of the night, beneath the stars on the shores of Lake Michigan? If you have, seek professional help.
Storm Front is the first in a series of books featuring Chicago's first and only Wizard P.I. I don't normally read crime novels, but a series of crime novels featuring wizards and magic intrigued me. If I like the first book there are 12 more to follow, and a thirteenth coming later in the year. I'm six chapters in and finding it an enjoyable read. I'm not at the 'wow-what-an-amazing-book' stage yet, though it has made me laugh out loud in a few places. I'll reserve final judgement for when I finish it.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
