TGE Ep 41 – Reads: Jim Butcher’s “Storm Front”

Welcome to the first episode in our new series, The Geek Embassy Reads! This series is the official book club for the site. We will read a book and then come together to share our thoughts about it.

Storm Front

For the first installment, we read Storm Front by Jim Butcher. This is the first installment of The Dresden Files series.

From the Amazon description:

For Harry Dresden—Chicago’s only professional wizard—business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name.


Evan and Dante are both big fans of the series. The excitement they bring to the discussion is pretty endearing. (Even when Dante says that Harry Dresden is the “best” wizard named Harry. Not quite fighting words but close!)

My favorite one-liner from the show, “Nothing ends well that starts with tequila.” You have to check out the episode for the reference.

Until next time, get your geek on!

Listen and Watch

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
