Book Review — Fool Moon (The Dresden Files #2) by Jim Butcher

Fool Moon (The Dresden Files, #2)Fool Moon by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Werewolves!

Another solid installment from Jim Butcher. I’d say Fool Moon was an improvement over the first novel, if only because his writing and plotting became tighter and more concise. Also, the ideas in this book interested me much more. I’m starting to see how the Dresden Files give the author a clever backdrop to explore myth. Harry’s role as a wizard P.I. is all set, and the story can continue since the struggles aren’t world-ending. It isn’t like an epic fantasy where at the end there isn’t much left to do.

Jim, you smart smart man. If there was ever any doubt I’d catch up with this series, it has firmly disappeared.

One small note: the action scenes were a bit much. I did enjoy them, but they were too heavy a proportion of the book. Though they were written well so I can’t complain too much.
