Fool Moon
Fool Moon | Jim Butcher
Business has been slow for professional wizard Harry Dresden, who 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.

Finished this over my lunch break today. #LunchtimeReading It‘s another good installment in the Dresden Files #Series. This is a #reread for me. I started this series years ago and am just now picking it back up so I am rereading from the beginning.

SolaRaynor I've read “Storm Front“ and would like to read more :) 10mo

Today‘s #LittensDressedinBlood prompt:

“Killing Moon”

Two paranormal suspense favorites that fill the prompt well I think!

🎧 Title, good play on words. Book 2!

Time‘s passed since book 1. Murphy is avoiding him since the giant scorpions because internal affairs!

One of Marcone‘s men is killed horribly so Murphy gives in & calls Harry for help, story takes off from there.

FBI agents show up. People can change into werewolves at will. Including Harry.

FUN! I enjoyed the variety of werewolves & Marcone is a good character to oppose yet help Harry.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good story but needlessly complicated plot and way too violent for the likes of me. I will recommend it though to the fantasy lovers for whom it will be a better fit.

I don‘t understand how this guy is a best selling author. The writing is basic, cliche, cheesy, and grossly sexist. After reading the second book I am completely turned off from the series.

This is book 2 in the series and I liked it better than book one. There was more character development and world building for one. Also, the pace of this one was better and I liked the story. 4⭐

KimHM These get better—more nuanced, better characters—as you move through the series. 1y

I think I'm falling in like with the hot mess that is Harry Dresden!

James Marsters is great in this role and for me is the main reason that I'm looking at the rest of the series because he just works for me as this character. I cannot imagine another actor in this role so definitely looking for book 3 if nothing more than I get to listen to Marsters yet again.

EclecticBookLover He's awesome! 2y
Traci1 I've finished the series, or what there is so far, and I definitely prefer the audiobooks to the books. The last one I read in print, and it was just not the same (though I did hear Marsters in my head). 2y
mariaku21 @Traci1 haha I've had that issue with other narrators and series where if I read a digital or printed copy, I just hear the voice actor in my head 😂 2y

Absolutely loved the second installment of the Dresden Files. It took me a long time to get into this book. It starts slower than the first but after coming back to it multiple times it clicked and I couldn‘t put it down! I absolutely love the characters Jim Butcher created and can‘t get enough of them! Already bought the next one!

My recommendation would be to skip Storm Front and go directly into this one. It recaps things well and it doesn‘t feel like you‘d be missing out on anything big. Fools Moon was a great installment but only a ⭐️⭐️⭐️. In the last half there were some f bombs and a brief sensual scene that‘s easily skipped. Wouldn‘t recc for a teenager to read this series tho.

It must be me! This series has a great reputation but I am just not feeling it. Have done the first two books by audiobook so might give it one more chance and do a physical read, perhaps just not working for me on audiobook format, some books don‘t. That aside what am I missing and what do others like about this series.? As I say, one more chance. 🤞

Susanita You‘re more generous than me. I read one and that was enough! 3y
Andrew65 @Susanita Sometimes too patient with books and series! You‘re approach is most probably better. 3y
Eggbeater I read the first one and I thought it was a so-so too. Fantasy is normally a favorite genre. I didn't click with the MC. 3y

TheAromaofBooks I really love Butcher's Codex Alera, but haven't picked up the Dresden Files yet. I've heard mixed reviews. 3y
Jovy I got hooked probably in book 4. Even so, I like Harry in small doses (I read one book a year) because it can sometimes feel repetitive. It does get better as you progress (deeper character, deeper plots). But not everybody feels the connection with Harry. That‘s ok! Too many books out there yes? 🙂 3y

Better than its predecessor, Fool Moon begins to develop the gritty, magical world Butcher has created. Another solid urban fantasy, but still building up to the larger story arcs that really impress.

I liked the book but I didn‘t love it. Werewolves. Alright cool. Been there, done that. What I liked was the tiny snippet we get into much bigger things being afoot. Something wicked this way comes is quite apt as Harry keeps having a pretty rough go of things and almost dying. It‘s for that I want to keep reading the series to see what‘s up. It‘s a good book and I adore Harry, but this one wasn‘t as good as the first to me.

This book is a BLAST. Audiobook is amazing too.
I adore Harry Dresden. Bus he does have flaws. I‘ll leave Murphy description of him, which I completely agree, right here:

“Dramatic death scene. Noble sacrifice, right? Tragically misunderstood? Hah! I understand you, buddy. You‘re such a pompous, arrogant, pretentious, chauvinistic, hopelessly old-fashioned, stupidly pigheaded . . .” 🤣

KathyWheeler I loved when she said that to Harry! It was so perfect. 😄 My husband and I just finished listening to this book and are on the next one now. James Marsters has become Harry Dresden to me; if they ever do another Dresden Files show, I want him to play Harry even though he‘s too old for him. 3y
pppooraikul @KathyWheeler Couldn‘t agree more! I‘d love to see that too. His narration is so Dresden. 🤣🤣 3y

Second in his Harry Dresden series, which mashes up hardboiled crime with fantasy in a most enjoyable way. Harry is a wise-cracking PI in the Chandler/Hammett tradition who also just happens to be Chicago's only wizard for hire. As the title indicates, this one is mainly concerned with werewolves. The first one in the series necessarily had to do a bit of scene-setting whereas this one gets right into things with a minimum of fuss. Tremendous fun.

I found him in a Dumpster one day when he was a kitten and he promptly adopted me. Despite my struggles, Mister had been an understanding soul, and I eventually came to realize that I was a part of his little family, and by his gracious consent was allowed to remain in his apartment. Cats. Go figure.

Not my favorite. I was thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed the 1st book in this series but this one just kind of fell flat. I will still probably continue on with the series since I have heard it gets better as it goes but as of right now I will take a short break from Harry Dresden.

Second Dresden Files book was better than the first, I think. I loved the different types of werewolves and how they pretty much all made an appearance. The absolute brutality of the main monster was terrifying.

I do hope it doesn't become a pattern in the books where the potions he makes earlier in the story always become useful later. That's about the only nitpick I have on this one. Overall I enjoyed it

I love Jim Butcher‘s world, writing, characters, pace...everything. He is a fantastic author and Harry Dresden is a wonderfully lovable character. The book is fast paced and gripping and won‘t allow you to put the book down until you‘ve finished the last page. If you haven‘t checked out the Dresden Files, you need to.
