Title: Fool Moon
Author: Jim Butcher
Publication Date: January 1, 2001
Summary: (From Amazon) 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.
Review: This was the second book I read of his, and the second in the series. These books are great, a typical thriller with a fantasy twist on it. My only complaint is I wish he would give us a better background on each character, for example what had happened in the end of the previous book. I would like to follow all the characters through this series but since most people will just pick up on or two of these somewhere in the middle of the series I guess it’s not really necessary. I felt like there were a few more plot lines in this one than the previous book, which was good, but if he keeps adding more every book it will definitely be too much for me. I also get really frustrated with Dresden at time, he makes stupid decisions and I feel like yelling at him, but I guess that’s probably a sign of good writing from the author.
I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of thrillers and/or sci-fi fantasy. The nice thing about these is they are quick, not an epic, and they still have just enough of a fantasy element to keep things interesting. I don’t know of many other series or even books that fall into this category so I like mixing in his books to my reading pile every now and then. They are also fantastic airplane/traveling reads!
