Whatever character it is has to be okay to basically sell there soul because they are technically not only working with the vampires but Harry's godmother as well.

This thread finally prompted me to pick this up. I'm about halfway through Storm Front. It's fun, well written, keeps my attention and makes me want to read more. A good read. Very similar to the Rachel Morgan series (Dead Witch Walking, etc.), or the early Anita Blake books.

He's right. It was the weakest. Every subsequent novel is better than the previous one.

I figured as much. Most series work that way. Get established, build an audience, then really get into the interesting stuff, the history, dark shadow, etc. Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series pulls the same trick, using mostly the same fantasy/horror elements Butcher is using. Of all the genre-crossing series around, I can see Dresden and Morgan interacting more than any other pair and not messing up their respective series' style and tone.

I just read the short story in The Mean Streets. It's really good and picks up a little after Small Favor. It deals with what happened to Michael.

Only the first two issues. The third is like 2 or 3 months late.
