    Summary: It started with, guess what, a woman. Well, two women actually. One in my office hiring me to find a lost knife and one in the morgue bled dry.


    Probably the best pure Dresden Files fanfic I have seen.

    Excellent. I don't think I enjoyed it quite so much as LittleChicago's stories, but it's actually really good.

    4/5

    Basically what Iztiak said, and adding that the dialogue feels a bit wooden in areas and the author should leave references to anime out of it >_>. Last I checked Dresden's geekiness extended into the Alpha's tabletop gaming night and not much farther.

    He's also Marvel Comics fan (and Nicodemus is probably DC Comics fan ;) ).

    Meh. The plot's interesting, but I think the author tries too hard to match the humourous perspective in the Dresden Files, and fails.

    Plus the writing's not that good, with quite a few missing words and mistakes.

    3.5, rounded up to 4 because it's readable Dresden.


    Nowhere near LittleChicago, though.
