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… (Goodreads)
As soon as I finished Storm Front, my friend convinced me to continue onto Fool Moon (Okay, I really didn’t need that much convincing). I was rewarded with an awesome story. This was another home run for me, I completely enjoyed reading this book. As you can guess from the description, and quite possibly the title, the story centers upon an investigation involving werewolves! How can a wizard help with werewolves you ask? You will just have to read the book to find out because I promise you, you WILL NOT regret it. Although I loved the first book, I loved this book even more. These books are just really fun to read and in this one we actually get to see Dresden get a little dirtier, a little more human but also just a little more badass than in the first one. I’m still completely charmed by him and there were many times throughout reading this where I burst out laughing from some sarcastic remark of Dresden’s. I definitely love the humor the author has given to this character and I just think he’s an all around greatly written character. I must make mention of the covers to these books…I love them. They really depict what I form in my mind when I picture Harry Dresden!
One thing that I am really enjoying about these books is that they keep me guessing throughout the whole investigation. I love when outcomes in books aren’t predictable. I’ve read books where the outcome is predictable but it’s still a great book but, it’s just a million times better when I have that “AHA” moment where I gasp out loud “Oh my God” and my husband looks at me like I’m crazy.
I’m hoping to start on the third book soon after I read through the book tours and ARC’s I have scheduled to read through February and March, so stay tuned and get into this series!!!
