Summary: HARRY DRESDEN — WIZARD
Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.
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—magicalor 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…
My Thoughts: I liked this slightly better than Storm Front. The narrative style – Harry Dresden’s voice – is extremely enjoyable. He’s very human, and very likable. Plus, his wit always at least makes me smile – sometimes even making me laugh.
The plot has some interesting twists and turns to it, with surprising alliances. Although, I must confess, the back-and-forth of Dresden and Murphy (as in, one minute they’re allies, and the next she’s arresting him) is getting old fast. I sure hope this doesn’t happen in every book of the series, because that alone might make me quit reading it! Still, the more I read Fool Moon, the more I enjoyed it. While I do feel I’ve read better (including Butcher’s Codex Alera series), I find this interesting and fun enough to keep going with the series – at least for now. (I restate, though, that if Murphy arrests Dresden in every book, I’m outta here!)
