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.

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is the biggest wimpiest wizard ever!!

Why does Dresden have to be poor, wimpy and injured all the time. Also could not stand the constant breathing and swallowing of the narrator and the monotone tone of his voice the whole time.

eh, listenable

it was okay that the reader did a great job but the story overall is typical Dresden Files story I just wish that Dresden would be at full streng.th when he fought his enemy sometimes gets a little tedious with him being always fighting at partial strength

Solid, but with issues

A good book, but the reading needed better editing. Quite a few mispronounced words and at least one glaring use of the wrong name.

I had to stop listening one quarter of the way through

The book is passable and sure Butcher is a good author. The problem with this audiobook is the narrator. I couldn't stand to listen to sigh, suck on candy or swallow his spit any longer. It was so bad I couldn't pay attention to what he was saying. I've heard he's a great narrator but not so in this reading.

Great book!

Another great book from Jim Butcher. The book is read fairly well by James Marsters, he does get better throughout the series. But you can tell he sits way too close to the microphone and doesn't have a pop shield, (or whatever they are called). the story is well written and intriguing. I hope that you enjoy it as my as I did.

Dry mouth

I like the book but it really bothers me when a narrator has a dry mouth and it sounds like their mouth is full of slime as they're talking. Just to warn anyone with a similar pet peeve

Wont be signing up for the Dresden fan club

Don't know why I got book two, habit I guess, but I won't be continuing further in the series. The second book was a template of the first, take out one monster, and substitute another, shoot Dresden several times,annoy female cop buddy, hurt her several times, run from bad guys. And Bam Dresden remembers he is a wizard and TA DA saves the day. The narrator which I very rarely complain about has a compulsion to sigh quite often to the point where it becomes predictable when he is going to do it, was extremely annoying . Sooo maybe he got bored too.

James Marsters puts on awesome performance

the book is great and James does a great job of preforming it his calm and consistent voice has a almost hypnotic power to it which allows your mind to focus on building the world which is mystical and dangerous I will continue to follow this series as long as James is reading it
