I really wanted to like The Dresden Files, I really did. If for no other reason than to access the various crossover fics there are. But the series just isn't clicking for me so far. The first book wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I would say just below average. It also did quite a bad job of explaining things, it felt like I'd started in the middle of the series than the beginning of it (I checked, I hadn't). I have barely any idea who the White Council is, what they do and if normal people even know about magic. Murphy does but Fool Moon shows that some don't and Dresden has so far not explained it properly. I'm on Fool Moon now and it isn't looking any better. I was told Dresden is a fairly strong (Both literally and figuratively) protagonist but near the end of Chapter 4 (Approximately 11.4% into the book), he physically cowers at the mere thought of a werewolf. I mean, I don't mind if my protagonists aren't all fearless but the above reaction is taking it a bit far. This is a werewolf that has no interestin him at all, has no idea he exists and is probably dozens of miles away. I just want to know: Does it get beeter? If so, when?
