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 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.

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.
