Amber's Actual Library Feline Fiction on Friday's with Amber @BionicBasil™

This week I'm sharing

Storm Front: The Dresden Files 

Book One


Jim Butcher

(sorry there's no book cover to share as it's the audio version)

      Here's A Small Snippet of the Book Blurb:      

My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. I'm a wizard. I work out of an office in midtown Chicago. As far as I know, I'm the only openly practicing professional wizard in the country. You can find me in the yellow pages, under Wizards. Believe it or not, I'm the only one there.


A modern-day wizard in an urban fantasy novel; not my usual kind of book to review here but I thought I'd mix it up a little today and yes there is a cat, he's called Mister and happens to be a rather large, grey feline. Although Mister is there just for a bit of fluff and is not really part of the plot.

I remember watching the TV show adaption of this series years ago and really enjoyed it, howeffur this is the furst time I actually got around to getting my mittens on a copy of the audiobook. 

Harry Dresden is a private investigator, who happens to be a little inept but he has a good heart.  After a rather nasty double murder, some gallivanting around town, near-death experiences and a whole host of magical phenomenon happening things really get weird but I'm not going to spoilerize it as mew know I don't do that.

Not quite as fun as the TV series but most enjoyable all the same. If mew like a good urban fantasy novel this is a total must for your audio library.  A nice unabridged adaption, purrfect for a lazy afternoon during lockdown.

I do hope mew enjoy this series if mew decide to give it a try, and if mew've read it already, what did mew think?

*    *    *

Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just fur mew. And don't furget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page.

Until next time

Keep calm and read on


Amber xox

And don't furget while we're all on lockdown, we The B Team have got your six and can entertain mew fur weeks; there are oodles of colouring pages to download and not furgetting the colouring books too.  There's a page full of crafting projects to keep your mittens making stuff! 

There are some epically exciting adventure stories too, so read our thrilling tales episode by epic episode.

We've got some new Brain Training posts, just to keep your little grey cells in tip-top condition. And we’ll be adding extra jigsaw puzzles to the puzzle page.

  1. OH OH OH! I've been re-listening to the audiobooks in the entire Harry Dresden Wizard currently on book #13 Ghost Story! A new book comes out in July, and rumour is that another one is due in September! Weee!!!
    My sister, who used to work in a library, calls this type of book 'horror', but I don't think of it like that at ALL! It's like the old TV show "The X-Files"; monsters and good guys. Takes place in modern-day Chicago.
    There is another series that is very similar, but based in London, by author Ben Aaronovitch, The Rivers of London series. Great stuff there too!

  2. I love your fill-ins and especially #4. That's the best way to approach this issue.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  4. Those were great fill-in answers and a wonderful review too sweet Amber!

  5. Sounds like a very cool book! Great fill-ins too!

  6. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. You deserve a book and movie deal. Nice review Amber. And I love the photo of you waving- that would make a nice puzzle ( hint, hint). XO

  7. I just LOVE Harry Dresden and have listed to every one of the audio books available through my library. Glad you gave it a try. You're looking sweet as ever Amber.

  8. Hi Amber! *waves back*
    That sounds like a good book.

  9. My momma is SO glad we have a pool.

  10. On some really hot days a pool would be lovely...but the maintenance seems daunting to us...

    up, walk away and do not let the disagreement turn into something nasty...

    Not sure I would enjoy a book with wizards...somehow I don't care for that kind of thing...but I know some peeps enjoy that kind of fantasy....sorry I am disagreeing with you,MOL, MOL!!! Nothing personal! Bye!!

  11. High-five back to you, Amber! That books sounds good -- we'll check it out!

  12. Whats not to like about a book with magic and cats :)
    Sounds loads of fun and well worth investigating the audio version or movies too!

  13. I always enjoy visiting your library, Amber! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I quite like how you originally answered #1. A book deal with a major publisher and a movie sounds wonderful. Dream big! Purrs!
