Description

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

Soon he finds himself pinned between trigger-happy FBI agents, shape-shifiting motorcycle gang members, a threatened mobster boss, and an heir to an ancient curse along with his primal fiance. Throw in environmental activists and a pair of young werewolves in love and you have something of Fool Moon.

One of the best books I've read in a long time!

I first discovered The Dresden Files series on NetFlix and was instantly hooked. I was nervous about reading Jim Butcher's books after seeing the series, worrying that my preconceptions and possible knowledge of plotlines might take away from the experience, but there's so much more to the characters and stories that I didn't even think of the TV series as I listened. Wonderful characters, wonderful stories, wonderful prose. I liked Marster's narration better in the second book. In fact, as much as I loved the first book, I found the second far more enjoyable, suspenseful, and thought provoking.

I'm liking Harry more and more

I was looking for another engaging series to try after reading all of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books and found Jim Butcher's books.

Harry Dresden, a wizard/detective in Chicago, is a very quirky, compelling main character who gets himself in one unbelievable predicament after another. I found the writing style of this second Dresden book to be decidedly improved from the first (Storm Front). Although there is still some hackneyed detective-genre prose to make me cringe at times, I am won over by Jim Butcher's talent for painting these characters, creating an intriguing paranormal universe, and some twisty-turny storylines that keep you guessing.

Fool Moon (nice pun, BTW) is about Harry's search to discover the source of a recent spate of killings, presumably by a werewolf. You will learn more about the different flavors of werewolf than you ever thought you wanted to know, and how they kill their prey (warning: not for the squeamish!)

I'm going to download the rest of the Dresden series because I just have to know what happens next to Harry and how he'll get out of it!

Werewolves, lycantropes, hexenwolves & loup-garou!

I enjoyed this installment more than book 1; the narration was much improved, it had chapters (I need order in my reads), and the story showcased countless different types of werewolves. The cast of secondary characters were wonderful as was Dresden's POV. The author's dark humour is catchy, and the action sequences were heart-stopping, especially the one in the police station. Whoa Nelly!

Another great novel of the Dresden Files

This novel is a turning point in the series. It is the second book in the Dresden Files and paves a strong foundation for turning a fairly light fantasy series into a substantial series with characters that live and breath. Murphy and Dresden begin to define the kind of friendship that will blossom into something very special.

Harry becomes something a bit more than just a brooding wizard as he begins to realize his responsibilities not just to trying to make a living but to his friends and his community of wizards.

James Marsten continues his excellent talent of reading these books and I disagree with a previous review that his delivery was shaky. His performance was stronger than the first book, Storm Front, and it continues to get better through the rest of the series.

I hope Audible gets all of the series. You should, too!

Howling entertainment

With all the undead books out there it was surprising to find a werewolf story that is actually original. Lots of suspense and lots of laughs mixed together - very enjoyable detective story fun. Some adult content, tastefully written, but not for pre-teens.

Loogarooooooo!

Dresden books are so great!  He's such a fantastic, master-mess, kind of sexy, (In a weird way), wizard. 

Returning superb cast members make this another outstanding read.  I was looking forward to seeing all the regular suspects that make up Harry's motley crew of friends, enemies and co-workers; it was like seeing old friends.  

According to my favorite, "flippant-English, talking skull, ancient-spirit guy," "Bob".  There are three different types of werewolves and they get pretty ruthless in this second installment of Dresden's adventures.  A great detective story that can carry a serious side while throwing in just enough humor to keep the story entertaining without becoming silly.  

Butcher keeps the suspense flowing throughout his writing without forcing the storyline and Harry would not be Harry without being narrated by  Marsters.  I'm hooked on Harry and this series.

Pretty good story line but poor reader

Would you listen to Fool Moon again? Why?

Well I liked the story enough to put up with the reader's constant deep breaths and swallowing sounds..As soon as I would get engaged in the story, he would do something to remind me yet again that he was the reader and not the character...you can even hear him swallow every few minutes!

How could the performance have been better?

new reader please

Done with Mr. Dresden

Any additional comments?

I have to admit I came into The Dresden Files expecting something really great but in the end it really just isn't for me. Dresden is a bit of an ass and spends most of the book in an emo mess of self loathing about how everything wouldn't be so screwed up if he was just able to figure out the convoluted mystery sooner.

Then there is Karrin Murphy. Ms. Murphy is far to quick to just assume Dresden is an evil, murdering, bastard when in truth he is just a crappy friend who can't just tell her what is actually going on which is what she is paying him to do.

Oh and lets not forget Mr. Masters. The breathing, oh the breathing. Why in the world did the editor allow all of the damn breathing and swallowing to stay in the book? Don't get me wrong, it isn't half as bad as the first book but it really pulled me out of the story. At least the production value for this book was a bit better than the first because it didn't sound like a bootleg of a 1950s radio program.

Alas, I have to say that I really don't think I am going to continue the Dresden Files. I had high hopes but it really just seems like a chore to continue with the series. It isn't the worst thing in the world and I fully understand that a lot of people really love the series but it's just not for me.

This engaged me more than I thought it would

The second book in The Dresden Files takes place a bit after the events in Storm Front. After business slows down resulting in Harry taking some odd magical jobs here and there, Karrin Murphy contacts Harry for his help on a murder case. She takes him to a crime scene where one of Marcone's men has been brutally murdered and strange paw prints are left at the scene. Add the fact similar murders have been taking place during and around the full moon for a few months, and you have a formula.

I've read the first book twice now, and even though I liked it, I hadn't ventured any further in the series until now. I just get so bogged down with other books I want to read. I had to work out of town for two days, and I figured this would be the perfect read for my trip since I wouldn't be able to do much book reading. I try not to listen to anything too heavy and this was the perfect audio book with it's fast, easy pace. I found myself quickly caught up in the story.

I thought Butcher's take on werewolves was refreshing, especially how he used "lycanthropes," who aren't really werewolves, but people born with the ability to tap into the spirit of rage. When they are under the power of the spirit, they are more aggressive, stronger, and they heal quickly. His four definitions of werewolves in the story gives them real weaknesses and strengths (other than the silver bullet bit, but it comes into play as well) with the werewolves we typically think of, called loup-garou, not being as common in Harry's world as the other three types.

And Harry, good ol' self-deprecating Harry. He had me arguing with him so much in this book. His sense of heroic honor seems to make him do the dumbest things and aptly illustrates the point in one of my favorite quotes about just how much dumb luck the good guys have. I'm sure I would've been much more annoyed with him if I'd been reading this instead of listening to it because I would've spent a ridiculous amount of time rereading and trying to make sense out of the Harry's madness.

Regardless, I can't help but like the guy, even when I wish I could reach my hands into the book and throttle him while screaming, "Why would you do that?" That means I care about the character. It's only the characters I don't want to suffer so much that I argue with. But I do have to give him credit for the really ingenious things he did do during the course of this story. Also, he half quoted Spider-Man when he went on his "Knowledge is Power. And Power comes with responsibility!" rant. How can I hate a man like that?

Also, I'm glad that Harry was able to understand that he shouldn't withhold information about the supernatural from people like Murphy. They need that information to have a fighting chance. It's not enough to say, "It's dangerous," and leave it at that, especially when Murphy's job is to deal with the unknown. They may not use this information as intended, but he would be giving them the knowledge they need to try to stay alive. I'm not saying that he should spill everything he knows. He knows what's pertinent and what's not. How can he expect anyone, such as Murphy, to truly understand the gravity of the supernatural when he is only giving them half-information?

James Marsters is a wonderful narrator. True, I did balk a little at first, and I'm sorry for that. I was one of those people who got into the series because of the old Syfy show, and it's pretty much branded into my mind that Harry is Paul Blackthorne. Marsters really brought the characters to life for me after we crossed that Blackthorne hurdle. He did his best to give each character a distinct personality and a distinct sound, even the women. I loved the voice, the clipped, immaculate pronunciation, he used for Tera. It was like someone who learned English as a second language and still doesn't understand all the nuances of the English, which I guess that would describe Tera to a "T." I love his Murphy as well.

I heard one glaring mistake, though. When the lycanthropes captured Harry, during that moment when he was goading Parker, he called Parker by Marcone's name. It wasn't dialogue, just Harry's narrating/thinking part. He said, "Instead Marcone spun in his heel, picked up a tire iron, and turned back to me..." He meant Parker spun on his heel. Marcone hadn't even showed up yet at this point. But overall, Marsters' narrating pretty much made this story for me. I've already decided that I'll listen to the rest of the series, except for the book he didn't narrate.

SOMETIMES I HATE HAVING A CONSCIENCE

I WOKE IN A DARK PLACE
This is a popular series about a likeable character. HELL'S BELLS there is a lot of action. Some have said they like this better then the first book. NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO THERE YOU ARE. I liked the first book better. I don't feel it is important what order you read these in. You will not be lost or anything. It is obvious that Butcher is an intelligent writer and it shows. This story started pretty good, but as it went on, I felt it dragged. I usually don't like lectures in my stories and in this you kind of get werewolves 101, I actually enjoyed learning about the three different types of werewolves. If you have listened to any of the other books in this series and you liked them, then I believe you will like this.

I REPLIED KEEPING MY VOICE BLAND.
This narrator might be ok in small doses, but if you listen for several hours in a row, his bland voice can get on your nerves.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY, SO MY MOUTH JUST STARTED ACTING ON IT'S OWN.

Fantasy + gazing at women's bodies

Harry Dresden, wizard detective, has the mind of a teenager in puberty. The introduction of every female character starts with an analysis of their body proportions and lovely breasts. He says about himself repeatedly that he's the old fashioned gentleman, who likes to help a damsel in distress, so it seems like all "good" women in the series are sexy damsels (at one point or the other), all "evil" women are terrible sexy femmes fatale. They do all have variety, motives and character, but their amazing bodily attributes overshadow that.

Don't get me wrong: I think fantasy and sex is a great combination! Would have prefered less of the horny gaze and more spell variety though.

Not as good as the first part

Harry Dresden's 2nd story is about werewolves. As with the first part it starts rather slowly and every now and again Harry has an ace up the sleeve. One thing that really annoyed me was how stupidly his "friend" Karen Murphy reacts.
To sum up: a nice read but no Pulitzer prize. Don't expect too much.
I'll try the third part. If this doesn't get any better, I will quit reading about Harry Dresden.
One good thing at the end though: The reader James Marsters is quite good and can be recommended.

Harry Dresden und die Werwölfe

Haben Sie die Zeit genossen, in der Sie dieses Hörbuch gehört haben? Warum oder warum nicht?

Ja, hab ich. Harry Dresden ist so witzig, cool, enthusiastisch, sympathisch, dass du einfach gern Zeit mit ihm verbringst. Ich lieb auch die Vernetzung von Magie und der heutigen Welt. Die letzten zwei Stunden hab ich aber eher weniger genossen. Harry war den Umständen viel zu lange ausgeliefert und hat aktiv nicht so viel gemacht.Harrys Sicht über Frauen ist auch ganz furchtbar. Er hält sie konstant klein und will sie beschützen. Damit bringt er sich und alle anderen noch weiter in Gefahr. Immerhin erkennt er dies im Nachhinein immer.

Wie haben Sie auf das Ende des Hörbuchs reagiert? (ohne dabei natürlich zu viel zu verraten!)

Wie gesagt, ewig lange Kampfszenen, vor allem ohne Magie, mag ich nicht so.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit James Marsters gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

Ich habe Storm Front gelesen. James Marsters ist ein toller Sprecher. Es klingt eher, als ob er die Geschichte erzählt und nicht nur abliest.

Hat Fool Moon Sie zu etwas Bestimmtem inspiriert?

Ich werde wohl Bücher und Filme mit Werwölfen meiden.Und weitere Fresden Files Bücher lesen.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Ich finde die Reihe weiterhin Klasse.Harry war nur sehr inaktiv. Ich würde mich in der weiteren Büchern über einen Fall freuen, den er aktiv aufklärt.

En Heuler

Harry Dresden, laut Visitenkarte Magier, ist eigentlich ein klassischer Privatschnüffler der in Sachen Gerechtigkeit und Wahrheit mit, neben und gegen Polizei-Freund/Feind (hier: -in) handeln muss. Sehr spektakulär bisweilen - sozusagen Mike Hammer auf magisch.

In diesem Fall geht es um Werwölfe (daher auch der Titel der deutschen Übersetzung "Wolfsjagd"), aber bis ihm das klar wird steckt er schon tief in Schwierigkeiten ...

Den ersten Teil der Dresden-Saga hatte ich in Print gelesen und es hat mich nicht eben vom Hocker gebaut, aber dieser Band ist von James Marsters derart genial vorgetragen, dass ich vor Begeisterung heule und mir den nächsten Teil ordere!
