    THE most intense scene!

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by sweetchaos, Mar 4, 2009.

    I just finished reading a scene in The Dresden Files: Fool Moon and I am blown away. So far the series has been decent, nothing masterful, but pretty entertaining and on my list of favourite series. This just pushed it even further up.


    Around Chapter 17-20, Harry Dresden has to get to an imprisoned werewolf before he transforms under the full moon and use his magic to keep him restrained until he can become human again. Unfortunately, are hero is too late, and the werewolf attacks the entire police station.

    Right off the bat, I was on the edge of my seat. I was literally yelling at the book! "Why aren't you saying anything?!?!" I've never felt panic like that before just reading a book. It was so instense!! I can't even sleep now because of the adrenaline rush.

    I'm very impressed with the writing and can't wait to read the rest of the series. Hopefully it's as good as that!

    Have you ever read this scene? What as your take on it? Were you as blown away as I was? What about other books/scenes? Have you ever felt so instensely just reading?

    Oh yeaaaahhhh, I remember that scene. It has been awhile (I have read the entire series thus far). I wouldn’t classify the Dresden Files as great writing but you are right, they are fun. It is a good solid series with decent character development and I will continue to read it. Butcher does have a knack for the action scenes and they don’t always play out the way you expect. Don’t worry, he continues to write good action scenes throughout rest of the series as well. It is also good for some laughs.

    In the book Teach Me by R.A.

She cant control herself, and drives down a flooded street in the storm, her car sinks, and her friend is rescued by her former love but pronounced by the paramedics dead on the scene, later revived at a hospital.

    Thats a great book.
