Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great, surprising story"

    I think this is a much better story than the first one.
    Narrative is fluid, performance is superb, and the plot is really good

    Story
    "Didn't like this at all."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I couldn't even get through 8 hours of the first book in the series, Storm Front. I returned both books after spending 3 months trying to finish Storm Front.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I loved the show; I thought the books would be just as good if not better but I was very disappointed.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    He conveys emotion well.


    Do you think Fool Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know there a lot of books in the Dresden series, but they're not for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Storm Front received over 13,000 great reviews and I was excited to listen, but I never got invested in the characters or the story line. For me, these stories are better adapted for TV.

    Story
    "I Love James Marsters and, Now, Harry Dresden Too!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fool Moon the most enjoyable?

    The story is complex, and incredibly enjoyable. I'm beginning to enjoy the series very much, and would like for the series to continue indefinitely. I wasn't a particularly big fan of the fantasy genre as a rule. But after listening to the first couple of books, I readily changed my mind. And, of course, having James Marsters as a narrator is the best of all! It's like he's sitting next to me on my couch reading the story to me. And of course, it's only natural to imagine that James is shirtless.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry, of course. Harry is a wise-cracking badass who blends a great investigative instinct with awesome magic.


    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    Again, Harry.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really felt for Harry when Murphy suspected Harry of the murders. He has few friends as it is, and to know that one of them didn't trust him enough to believe that he was innocent must have hurt him deeply.

    Great, can't wait to listen to the rest of them. Good performance as expected. Harry is a bit of a goof, but a very likable character.

    "Good, but the series gets stronger later"

    Fool Moon is generally considered the weakest of the Dresden Files, and does show some flaws of an early work. The laws of magic aren't as codified, and Harry pulls some tricks that are never seen again. The book does introduce important characters, like Billy and the Alphas, and builds some over arching themes.

    James Marster's narration improves over Storm Front. the characters develop more distinct voices, and I defy anyone to read the big fight at the end between Harry and <redacted> without chills as they circle and strike.

    all in all, strongly recommended.

    "Terrific story and telling"

    I listened to the first book of the Dresden files on the recommendation of a friend and found it a little dull. This book and narration on the other hand, makes me want to read/listen to the remainder of the series.
