About the Book
The Dresden Files are set in an alternate “magical” Chicago. Our hero, a wizard and wisecracking private investigator, Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, takes on the magical establishment and the Chicago police in fast-paced adventures that are both compelling and funny.

In Changes, the twelfth installment of what the author says could be up to twenty or more books in the series, Harry is reunited with ex-girlfriend, Susan Rodriguez, a half-vampire (until she feeds on a human), who, after nearly ten years, returns with a powerful bloodlust and a life-changing revelation for Harry that kicks off his latest adventure…

  1. No spoilers in this review, but Wow! Just wow!

    On the first page of this book we learn exactly what Harry Dresden’s mission and

    prime focus is going be. Throughout Changes the characters we know and love appear,

    but the conversations they could/should and probably will have with Harry one day

    often don’t eventuate, because there simply isn’t time. Harry has his mission and

    one sole focus and his friends are either with him or not. There is no time for deep

    discussions or reflections.

    The changes, questions and possibilities accumulate in this book, not just for Harry

    but for all the characters. I can’t wait to see which avenues Jim Butcher will

    explore now that so many more have opened up. But fans may also be surprised at some

    of the Dresden familiarities that come to an end.

    The final 20 – 25% of this book especially impressed me. It was building up to a

    huge climax and it certainly didn’t disappoint, but we are provided with many

    surprise twists rather than just one big fight at the end.

    There is one particularly enormous WHOA! moment that I guarantee nobody will be

    expecting. http://amzn.to/aYzndE

    A wonderful book, a crucial pivot point in the Dresdenverse and after I’ve taken

    stock and recharged the kindle I’m off to read it again to see what I missed.

    Is it April 2011 yet?
