Fool Moon – Jim Butcher Review

Current Review:

The Dresden Files #2: Harry Dresden and the War of the Werewolves.

There’s something similar about a lot of books in the Dresden Files series. They have this… key murder case, just like a detective novel, that has some sort of supernatural explanation. Then Dresden irritates everyone and chaos. That’s pretty much the formula. And it works. I think for me the thing about the series is that after a while it gets boring. I like detective things, but there’s only so much you can do.

With this, with the supernatural element, there’s a little more to play with. But still, reoccurring characters aside the premise of the Dresden Files is a bit like the premise of a detective show. In fact, it would probably make an excellent one.

I feel like in Fool Moon Jim Butcher hasn’t quite fallen into his stride yet. There’s something… missing. But it’s still a nice, quick read for someone that wants a little magic, crime and adventure thrown into their days.
