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...


Would I recommend? Yes, and the series gets better!

Again, this is a ‘re-read’ as I listened to the audiobook for the first time. Marsters continues to be the best voice for Harry Dresden and I can only picture him now as the lanky, cantankerous wizard.

Onto the book itself!

Fool Moon is a good read, but an interesting decision to have as follow-up to Storm Front. Why do I say that? Well, Storm Front introduces you to the world of wizards and magic, but Fool Moon just throws the door down to werewolves. Storm Front is much more of a mystery novel, Dresden has his own thing going and then works with Karrin and well, plot happens. Fool Moon, there really isn’t a mystery other than figuring out motives. Harry never has his own thing, though is on his own for the entire novel. It simply seems like an extreme escalation to have happen between books one and two.

All that said, Fool Moon is enjoyable. It’s nice to get background information and to see Murphy sticking to her guns. The part I LOVED was actually View Spoiler »

I really don’t remember what the next book in the series is, but I’m kinda excited to see where it goes from here. I wonder what fantastical creature will be next to be introduced. Vampires or fairies?
