Hello Avid Readers,
Welcome to another book review!
This year, as you may know, I set myself the long overdue challenge of actually finishing some series! 😉 Today, I want to share my thoughts about a book I first read back in December 2018 and although I left a review on Amazon and Goodreads I didn’t post one on my blog. I’m rectifying that oversight now!
Fool Moon (The Dresden Files #2) by Jim Butcher
Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago’s first (and only) Wizard P.I. Turns out the ‘everyday’ world is full of strange and magical things – and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in.
Business has been slow lately for Harry Dresden. Okay, business has been dead. Not undead – just dead. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry hasn’t been able to dredge up any kind of work – magical or 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 . . .
Magic – it can get a guy killed.
Another Gripping Story In This Urban Fantasy Series.
This story had everything that I look for in an engaging book; it has a good balance between the various aspects of this story – mystery, crime, thriller, horror, detective and paranormal – and blends them with well written humour that was dry and helped to keep it from being too heavy. This story surprised me a few times and I enjoyed trying to second guess where Mr Butcher would take us next!
I’ve read the previous book in this series and really enjoyed it however, I don’t think that you have to have read Storm Front to enjoy this one.
I added the narration too and I alternated between reading and listening to the tale. I feel that the narration by James Marsters helped to bring our hero, Harry Dresden to life.
Grave Peril (book 3) is already added to my Amazon wish list.
