Storm Front  - Jim Butcher Couldn't help it, finished this book ahead of the book club schedule as well. It's certainly a page turner, and though it's pretty standard from what I expected of books like this, I have to say I like it better than most other urban fantasies I've read.

For one thing, I love the action scenes, the kind of situations you'd see in a special-effects-heavy movie. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually find it sort of refreshing. Over-the-top as they may be, it beats your usual gunfight sequences or all that will-they-won't-they drama.

This is a great choice for a casual read if you're looking for a fun and fast-paced urban fantasy. Great start, I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of the series.
