On the whole, again I have to say I loved the book. I don't think it is clear enough in this review – and the ongoing erasure is vexing – but these are good books. They have a strong world, a strong character and an involved, deep without being convoluted storyline – and yes, I would recommend them.

Synopsis

Could a werewolf be loose in Chicago? Common sense says no. The grisly evidence says yes. So does Harry Dresden. And with his weird connections, he should know.

Jim Butcher's Fool Moon is a quick paced and action filled follow up to Storm Front. There's enough of a separate plot to hold it's own and just enough details to tie it into the events of the previous story.

Definitely one for those who like their downtrodden detectives with magic thrown in. Despite my minor reservations, still worth reading, and I will continue to read the rest in the series.

Fool Moon delivers on the promise made in Storm Front, of a different kind of fantasy story, a potent blend of action and magic, snarkiness and vulnerability.

That is exactly what The Dresden Files is; a good detective story, with a supernatural wrapper, that includes some nice art and interesting characters. If you are looking for something different to pick up, The Dresden Files is worth a read...

The detective stylings of Foolmoon enriches a plot full of red herrings and clues that only come together in the book's climax; Fool Moon reads like a good detective novel, with magic.

Fool Moon is a bit darker than its predecessor. Harry really takes a beating in this novel (both physically and emotionally), and Butcher ups the gore and violence quotient. But for all of that, it is still loads of fun and a rich and satisfying read.

Fool Moon in the end is a mildly entertaining diversion for those days when you don’t feel like thinking too hard. Where characters don’t have hidden depths (or if they do they are very well hidden indeed). In almost every respect Fool Moon exceeds its predecessor...

This novel pits Harry Dresden up against all manner of werewolves, and explores the transformation process in great depth and detail. I enjoyed the quantity of action scenes, but did find myself becoming a little frustrated with Harry as the sole narrator.

It’s nowhere near the quality of the original book, but it’s a far cry from something that was knocked together in the space of ten minutes.

Fool Moon, like all the Dresden novels, maintains a consistent tone and always manages to strike the right balance between humor, action, pathos, and throat-ripping violence. I'm happy to see that Butcher has no problem living up to his name.

Okay, this series was more addictive than I anticipated, and I fully admit the only reason I'm reading these books is for Harry, he rocks my socks. The plots aren't anything amazing and neither is the writing but I love the characters...
