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.

    "Another Great Story!"

    Greatly enjoyed the story. James Msrsters does a wonderful job, using the words of Jim Butcher, to pull you in and keep you listening until the end. Staying on the next in the series right now, which should tell you how much I'm enjoying this series.

    "Excellent!"

    I have enjoyed otherwise books in the series and this one was equally as entertaining. The characters are finely drawn and interesting. Harry Dresden is a charming character. He is at once humble and arrogant, humorous and on occasion profound. I especially enjoy James Marsters reading.

    The style of narration is unique and entertaining. The story itself is an excellent one with no slow spots. I can't wait to listen to other books in this series.

    Any additional comments?

    The story is well paced and entertaining. I like the Wizzard, who is the story teller. As the series progresses, the characters begin to flesh out. It appears that there is going to be a love triangle (the Wizzard, the female newspaper reporter and the female Detective) and I don't know how I want it to resolve itself.

    "great story, great narration"

    Tremendous stuff - though if you are contemplating buying this as your first "Harry Dresden" book, it is important to read the series in order - get "Storm Front" first!

    So what's the series about? Science Fantasy meets detective noir, with lots of action, terrific narrative drive, great characters, quirky dialogue, humour - what more can I say?

    Perfectly suited for an audiobook as the story is told by the main character, and James Marsters (Spike in TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer)brings Harry Dresden splendidly to life and captures Jim Butcher'style to perfection.

    Strongly recommended.

    Story
    "Something went wrong here."

    I've listened to several of Jim Butcher's audio books and really love this series but if I'm being totally honest, you could probably skip this one if you wanted. There is no character progression here, only an idiot claiming to be a detective would miss really important clues or walk into dangerous situations completely unprepared, the way Dresden does in this one. After how well the first story was written, I was left really disappointed.

    There are three reasons why you may want to stick with it. While Harry doesn't exactly experience much in the way of personal growth in this story, there are several important developments with his relationships. James Masters is brilliant as always, drawing you in without you even realizing it. His acting ability really brings the characters to life and gives a performance where many narrators provide only a recital. Lastly, the first novel is a really enjoyable listen, I would rate the next novel as five star, so if your expectations aren't too high, you should still enjoy this book as part of the series.

    "Easy listening"

    I think I preferred this to book one in the series. Harry's character is definitely gaining some depth, and the story seemed to just gel better than in book one. I understand from other reviewers that the series improves as it goes on.

    James Marsters' narration is excellent. Although he doesn't really do different voices for different characters, his presentation is such that you have no doubt as to who is speaking. His voice is very easy to listen to, and his tone, emphasis and ability to impart the character's state of being really adds to the overall enjoyment of this book.

    Enjoyed it enough to give the next book in the series a chance....off to download that one now.

    "A great purchase"

    Excellent reading as always - I could listen to this reader read the phone book out, as he has a lovely voice. He makes an average set of books well worth listening to, and I stick entirely to audio nowadays for this series. Definitely among my favourite purchases.

    "A great listen"
    If you could sum up Fool Moon in three words, what would they be?

    A very hard thing to do... Werewolves, Wizards and Mystery.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obviously, It's Harry... but then it's all about Harry :) But my favourite character is Karrin Murphy, but that's based on the story arc [I'm up to Book 14 Cold Days]. In this she still doesn't 'get' Harry entirely and she's learning about what really lurks in the shadows and how to be taken seriously.


    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I am biased and I have listened to all 12 of the Harry Dresden audiobooks available on audible and so think James Marsters reading is pretty darn good. I watched him on Buffy, Superman and a few other places he has appeared over the years as well. He gets the tone of the book right, Film Noir twisted with Urban Fantasy. He also makes a good attempt at voicing the characters well, Bob and Harry being particular high notes.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh quite a bit at Harry, he has a way of getting into scrapes and trying to be the hero and chivalrous all in one.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the Harry Dresden books and love having them in audio, being able to listen when it suits me is brilliant. I'm on my third round of listening to these books and it's amazing the things I just didn't pick up on before, paths that Harry will be led down in the distant future. Jim does an excellent job writing these books with such detail and care. I just can't wait now for audible to get Ghost Story and Cold Days in audio format now.

    "Excellent series of books"

    How to explain? Imagine private eye Philip Marlowe in the Big Sleep and then substitute wizard Harry Dreseden, For the bad guys you have supernatural beasts like Werewolves and Daemons. The narrative of James Masters brings the rough around the edges character of Dresden to life. and the fast paced writing of Jim Butcher keeps your interest in the story. Excellent books, difficult to stop listening - trouble is they're using up all my Audible credits!

    The reading mp by Marsters is good n this book, noticed a few quirks in the book that I didn't when I read it a few years back, albeit I've read the complete series & maybe look at it slightly differently now. If you like science fiction or fantasy books this is a must read...after Storm Front of course. It's a good book & a great series

    "An Excellent Urban Fantasy Book"

    The second book in the Dresden Files. It's still not quite perfect but the series really starts to find it's feet here and as I've said before James Marsters is perfect as Harry.



    This book introduces a few new characters who become very important throughout the series and it's spin offs (one of them is the author of the roleplaying game) and helps to strengthen relationships between characters we already know.



    Although not one of my favourite in the series there are a few particular scenes that really define the series and certain characters for the future - the police station scene for one as well as the scene in the pit with Marcone both spring to mind.

    "An interesting look at werewolves..."

    While I really like the Dresden books, and am working my way through the entire series, this one is definitely a stand-out for the sheer amount of research that Jim Butcher must have done on the various legends of werewolves



    Not only does he mention the various types of were-creations, but he lists the differences, how they could get their power, and their advantages and dis-advantages - for a listener who knows something about were-wolves, this was a REALLY interesting read, although it does get very complicated at times



    I'm a fan of Butcher's writing, and this is definitely a stand-out for anyone who loves the magic back-drop and the fantasy parts with the were-creatures - it's a pity that he doesn't include other weres in the detail of the story, as that would leave doors open to later were-related side-stories later on



    A great listen for Dresden fans, and a good bit of information thrown in to make you think!
