Review: Storm Front

By Dan Spiers

Storm Front is part action novel, part suspense mystery. It’s about a wizard named Harry Dresden in modern-day Chicago that struggles to work as a private investigator and as a consultant for the Chicago police department. Storm Front jumps right into the action with Dresden receiving a phone call from a woman who wants to hire Harry to locate her husband. Immediately after the call, the Chicago Police hire Dresden to investigate an unnaturally gruesome murder. After seeing the crime scene, on his way home, Harry is harassed by Gentleman Johnny Marcone, local crime lord. If that’s not enough, Dresden also has to contend with drug running, black magic, dark rituals, talking skulls, seductive vampires, and a council of wizards watching Harry’s every move.

Review: Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment

By Karina G.

This is about a group of six flying-human kids that are trying to save their youngest flock member. Max is the leader and is fourteen; Fang is the second in command and is also fourteen; then comes Iggy who also is fourteen and is blind but has a sensitive hearing and sense of touch; Nudge comes next. She is from an African descent and is a nonstop 12-year old chatter mouth; she can also decode passwords to computers and things that have passwords. After Nudge is The Gasman. He is eight and is known for his name since he was born with a strange digestive problem. He and Iggy are best friends; they can make bombs out of almost anything! After The Gasman finally comes Angel. Angel is six and she and The Gasman are the only true-blooded siblings out of the whole flock. She can read minds, control minds, and breath underwater.
