I recently finished the Dresden Files and admittedly I have become a fan. It seems most of urban fantasy nowadays is dominated by female authors using these settings for thinly veiled romances so I found Butchers rather practical approach to the supernatural world rather refreshing.
Also, while the first couple of novels where rather mediocre and cliched it is amazing how you can literally read how the author improves with each book. (Took me a week to read the first novel, two nights to read the last one..... ).
Unfortunatly I once again couldn't wait till the series is complete (I hate waiting a year for the continuation) so now I am currently out of stuff to read, so my question is....something similar out there? Anyone read the second novel-series from Butcher? Any good?
