Fool Moon

Fool Moon by Jim ButcherSo this is my 
second Jim Butcher novel. If there is one thing I can say about the 
man’s writing is that he has some of the best one liners. Like “I wanted
 to hold her. I wanted to clean the stains inside of my head.” There’s 
another one about the barrel of a gun that will come back to me tomorrow
 after I’ve posted this blog. But it was good. The first book Storm Front focused on a rouge wizard who was using Chicago based storms to wreck havoc on the city. Fool Moon 
 was about rouge ware-wolfs (of which there are seven verities) killing 
various citizens. The common denominator with both novels is the big bad
 who’s supporting or training the various other baddies has yet to be be
 explored. Both books are written as a sort of a sifi cop drama. 
There is no point in which Harry, our main character, takes a breath. It
 is literally go go, go. There is no point in which you want to stop and
 take a breath. There is no point in which you can. I just had to and 
every time it was hard. So was book two 
better then book one? I didn’t think so. I enjoyed the character 
development. I think there is something between the main investigator 
and Harry and I’d love to see that develop a bit more. I’m sure it won’t
 be for a long time.  I have this theory about books, movies, etc that 
the second of something is never as good as the first, but by the third 
the creator has figured out how to make it good again. Now, I’m in no 
way saying book two was bad, just that I preferred the first. Now, that 
being said, I can’t wait to read book three. If my theory serves it will
 be freaking epic!
