Butcher's not bad, but he isn't great by any means. He still used a lot of really amateur stuff in his first few Dresden books at least. On the other hand, he has better ideas than his writing skill would indicate so he can be a lot of fun.

At his best he reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At his worst, he reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (That series is pretty jumpy in quality).
