Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work, magical or mundane.
But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.
A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses, and the first two don't count...
I found out about this series from my dad, who had enjoyed them. I got to say that I am glad that he told me about it. A novel about werewolves, magic, murder and quite bit of suspense, how can you not enjoy a book like this? I know that I did, actually I couldn’t seem to get enough of the story. Every page had me wondering what sort of trouble will Harry manage to find himself in next? What I learned through reading The Dresden Files is that wherever he goes, some sort of trouble follows him, I am surprised that he didn’t manage to get himself killed yet, though he did come close. This is the second time that I read this book and I loved it as much as the first time around I read it. Reading Fool Moon made me remember what I love about the series. Especially occasional sarcastic remarks from Harry, you can’t help but love the character. There are some choices he makes that I don’t agree with or has me thinking what he was thinking at that moment, but in general he’s one tough guy, considering what he has to go through so much.
I had always loved books that deal with werewolves, and through the years I read multiple ones, with different portrayer of them. I believe that Fool Moon portrayed werewolf’s right, because how the werewolves are if there were such things. I knew that there were 2 different types of werewolves but I didn’t realize that there were even more, that’s what was so interesting about it. Of course the mystery behind, who was doing all of the killing was the real mystery. What I love about Butcher writing is that the murder is always the last suspected person and that was the case in Storm Front. I did not see that coming, I think my jaw actually dropped when I reached to that part. Second, I love how Butcher has you on edge of the seat pretty much most of the book, it filled with so much suspense, mystery. Even if this was 2nd time reading the book, I did not want to put the book down, I need see if Harry, Murphy will figure out what’s going on, who was responsible, if they could actually get out of this mess.
Susan and Murphy like Harry you can’t help but love those two. To be honest I always seemed to prefer Susan over Murphy maybe because of affect that she has on Harry. Murphy and Harry’s friendship was put to test in this book, she struggling with thought if to trust him or not. I could see that was hard of Harry even if he tried his hardest not to show his feelings about how much it hurt him. Despite that, when she was in danger, he still did everything that he could, to make sure that she was safe. If that’s not true friendship then I don’t know what is. I hope she sees how much he trying to earn her trust back and their friendship go to way it was before. Susan, I could tell how much she cared about Harry in this book, with everything she did for him, how worried she got when he was about to face these werewolves. She loves him even if she didn’t say it yet, I know that she does. I am eager to see where their relationship leads to next, if it will get more serious. One thing I do love about both women: They are determined about their jobs.
You love mystery? Paranormal? Werewolves? Fool Moon has everything and it will keep you on edge of your seat. Be ready for a thrilling ride.
