I really like both Jim Butcher series and am looking for similar books. Any ideas?
I also like his books and just read Spiral Hunt by Margaret Ronald - very similar in that they are in the same genre, action packed, have an underdog going against the seemingly favored enemy (but not overwhelmingly favored, as some books seem to do -- Dark Rain is one recent one, where the author has been compared to Butcher, but I didn't like nearly as well), and a good read that doesn't bog down.DeDe said:I really like both Jim Butcher series and am looking for similar books.

You should definitely check out the 'Word and the Void' series and Genesis of Shannara followup I mentioned. Very similar to Dresden and set in modern times. Genesis is post apocalypse with same character lineage. Both have nothing to do with shannara (except the last book of genesis which is a loose tie-in).MonaSW said:It's hard to find something as enjoyable as Jim Butcher's books. I read a lot of Terry Brooks and did not enjoy the first couple Shannara books. Are the new ones better?
You might like Glen Cook's Garrett, PI series.
Nope - nothing there. You probably meant Old Man's War (first in the series). Excellent series. Of course, now you're into Sci-Fi which is a bit different than Butcher. The Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell is fantastic as well.Suggested by a friend is John Scalzi. I haven't read any of his books, I think this is the first book of the series, but don't hold me to it:
