I more or less enjoyed the first couple books in this series as well, and while the reading was incredibly light, I tore through the books fast.

I found the first several books in the series to be enjoyable for light reading.

As someone very familiar with modern-day Chicago, my biggest problem with Storm Front was how unfamiliar Butcher clearly was with the city.
