“One of the most enjoyable marriages of the fantasy and mystery genres on the shelves,”(Cinescape) the Dresden Files have become synonymous with action-packed urban fantasy and nonstop fun. Fool Moon continues the adventures of Jim Butcher’s most famous—and infamous—reluctant hero…
 
You’d think there’d be a little more action for the only professional wizard listed in the Chicago phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn’t been able to dredge up any kind of work: magical, mundane, or menial.
 
Just when it looks like he can’t afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise. There’s a brutally mutilated corpse, and monstrous animal markings at the scene. Not to mention that the killing took place on the night of a full moon. Harry knows exactly where this case is headed. Take three guesses—and the first two don’t count...

Baker & Taylor
When the corpse of a brutally mutilated murder victim turns up at the time of the full moon, accompanied by some most unusual paw prints, professional wizard and supernatural investigator Harry Dresden finds himself searching Chicago for the werewolf stalking the city. Original.

For me personally, this book took me a bit longer to finish just because I happened across the short-lived (but awesome) television series and I knew the answer to the riddle already just not all the details.

Nonetheless, I did read this book and I loved every blood-soaked minute of it! I was never a big fan of how most werewolves are portrayed in the media, but I gotta say that Butcher really had some fun here!

The book itself was very action packed, with death facing Harry nearly every chapter. The character of Tera West has to be my favorite character that he has introduced so far, and I have never really had a big thing for wolves. I do not hate them; they are okay. But Tera. I just loved her.

I am growing to dislike the character of Murphy and I am hoping to see some change in that character as the series goes on. Stubbornness is great and all, but it's getting old. That girl needs to know when to just go with it. Static characters can get dull. I have, however, resigned to the idea that Murphy is very unlikely to change as the series goes on because the story is about Harry, not Karrin. Regardless though, I am excited for the third book. :)

Newness wore off a little for me, but I still enjoyed it. The narration is wonderful!

It was entertaining enough for a common sequel in a not-so-common series such as the Dresden Files. I felt the book kicked off with a slow start that last pretty much through to the end, and I felt like I was sledging through the pages. Not a bad sequel....but it did not hold my attention throughout which is a joy that I look for in reading a story. Perhaps the next book will be different.

With a murderous shapeshifters on the loose in Chicago, it's up to Harry Dresden to find the monster and stop it before becoming its lunch.
