      I honestly didn t think Butcher could write a better Harry Dresden book than Dead Beat Boy, was I wrong Big Fat Spoiler Alert Don t read any until you ve read the book If I may speak of this from a personal perspective, I have done the same thing with the Kate Shugak series that Jim Butcher has now done in Changes I took her job away, albeit off stage, I killed her lover, I burned down her house But in Changes Butcher does it all in one book, in 438 pages he strips Harry to the bone, divesting [...]

      Okay, full disclosure I love the Dresden books If you have read my reviews of them you know this This one is no exception and is possibly the best so far I can t say much about the book s storyline without spoilers, but there are parts of the storyreads if you will, that have been running through the other volumes or less underneath other Main story lines These books can really make you rethink the concept of a fairy godmother for instance A lot of these come to culmination here Other thingsn t [...]

      Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden s lover until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.Susan is back and she has a big surprise for Harry in this one If you ve read the synopsis then you probably already know what it is, but if you haven t I would recommend not reading it so you don t spoil i [...]

      Holy F balls, this book just made my all time favorites list.My heart Through the ringer My nerves Shot My mind Blown.This was me through the entire beautiful, horrible, intense, emotional, perfectly narrated audiobook Twists and turns like never before Get ready for the ride of your life And that cliffhanger ending just gut me now Perfection.

    5. Luffy on said:

      I m feeling quite happy, fresh from reading Changes Had I read it faster, I would have given it less than 4 stars So who knows, if I d read it slower, maybe I d have rated it a perfect five But I feel that though I can t ignore the flaws of Dresden s episodic epics, I realize that for a book that provides so much fun, it s okay for part of it to be mindless.

    6. Dan Schwent on said:

      In the space of a phone call, Harry Dresden learns he has a daughter with Susan Rodriguez and that she s been kidnapped by the Red Court of vampires The vampires are setting up a bloodline curse that will kill the child and everyone related to her Meanwhile, the White Council of wizards seems to be buddying up with the Red Court to put an end to the war between the wizards and the vampires Can Harry save his daughter and stop the bloodline curse I have mixed feelings about this one.Pros As usual [...]

      Harry returns in his 12th novel discovering through his old flame that he has a daughter Along the way he avoids assassination attempts and hostile supernatural creatures in order to save the child For those who have enjoyed the most recent two books it s of the same old same old though I find the style diverting from the original first six or so novels Harry gets into jam after jam and even though they get bigger and bigger it s gotten to the point where it s getting stale True, the older nove [...]

    8. Becky on said:

      Yup That about sums it up Holy craptoid this book was intense I know that I said that I found Turn Coat to be predictable, but Changes was anything but It started off with a Whopper and then added jalapenos and Sriracha and some pickled habaneros and holy shit is this going to be regrettable later I never knew where this was going to go next, and each time another explosive ingredient was added, my intestines clenched.And on top of that, this book was surprisingly emotional as well EVERYTHING ch [...]

    9. Kevin on said:

      Wow I ll say it again, WOW Book 12 of the Dresden Files is the best one yet I don t even know what I can say without giving it away READ THIS BOOK 4 29 30Okay, time to try to write an actual review Warning May contain spoilers.Harry gets a call from his old girlfriend Susan Rodriguez They ve taken our little girl Harry pauses for 5 seconds and then, Um, what For those who ve read about Harry in the past you know this hit him like a nuclear explosion He s an orphan He has definite ideas about bei [...]

      7 10Ch ch changes Just gonna have to be a different man Time may change me But I can t trace timeDavid BowieI merely put this in my review as I couldn t pick this book up without singing this classic song in my head and some of the lyrics are mildly relevant I suppose.This isn t a review and ramblings as I can t work out my feelings on this one.I found this one difficult to rate to be honest, so much happens in this one but I just didn t get totally invested in the story I think I like the seri [...]

    11. Emma on said:

      That was amazing, the best yet Changes was absolutely the right name for this book Non stop action from beginning to end Everything, I mean absolutely EVERYTHING got changed up in this book.I can t imagine how the next book is going to lookThis volume also makes me realise how far Harry Dresden has come as a wizard since we first met him If I had the time I d even be tempted to go back and re read the whole series up to now.This is one of the best urban fantasy series out there.

    12. David Sven on said:

      Forget about book cover blurbs including spoilers this story has the spoiler tied up in it s one word title Changes From the very first sentence we get hit with a jaw dropping revelation that will see Harry propelled into a quest to save the single most important thing in his life And the lengths he is prepared to go to preserve that which he loves most will see him undergo a metamorphosis that left me in shock You know how Harry is always fighting the temptation to access powers that will see h [...]

      Laugh whenever you can Keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad That and vodka I need vodka for this review I mean, I wanted some shake up in this world but What The F ck Jim Butcher It s like he decided to just burn the whole house down just for the hell of itere may be casualties, but I m willing to let others pay that priceI mean, sure, it was fun When isn t it fun to watch things burn Who doesn t like to throw things from a tall building just to see them smash into little pieces l [...]

      Another fantastic Dresden file The ending though So glad I can pick up the next immediately

    15. Tim The Enchanter on said:

      Possibly the Best in the Series 5 StarsWow What a ride Once again I am amazed at how Jim Butcher manages to make Harry Dresden interesting as the series progresses The name of the book foreshadows the events in the novel and presumably foreshadows changes in future book This is the most epic of Harry s adventures Without giving anything away, what Harry manages to do is historic, even by Wizard standards It will be interesting to see where Butcher takes the series from here Honestly, this book [...]

    16. Angela on said:

      I am a diehard Dresden Files fan, and with each successive book, I ve gone in expecting to be thoroughly entertained This time around I was not.I was absolutely mindblown.Jim Butcher knew what he was doing when he titled this book From the very first sentence, everything you think you know about Harry Dresden, all the people he knows and loves, and the world in which he operates is turned completely on its ear The biggest of these changes was revealed on Jim s own site, so I will go so far as to [...]

    17. Sumant on said:

      Change is neither good nor bad, it is what it is Don Draper I really like this line from the Mad Men series, it just summarizes to us that Change is an integral part of our life whether it is good or bad But some changes do affect us emotionally,physically and psychologically and same happens with our wizard from Chicago where in his past comes to bite him back literally, and changes all the things which we have come to recognize as Harry Dresden I think Butcher has started his end game from thi [...]

    18. Rob on said:

      Executive Summary If you ve been enjoying yourself to this point in the series, you should really love this book as much as I do It s definitely the best book of the series so far.Audio book James Marsters seems to approach each book like a 1 man show now He has distinct voices for all the major parts, and even most of the minor ones It seems like he enjoys reading them as much as I do, and that comes through.Full ReviewI had originally reviewed this book on Living Social s Virtual Bookshelf for [...]

    19. Lightreads on said:

      I have realized that reading this series is a live fire demonstration of that definition of insanity about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.By which I mean that this book is hilariously inept but enragingly compelling, with a gratuitous magical brawl every fifteen pages and towering manpain and the stakes on the battle against ultimate evil, take 12, this time with ultimater evil cranked up yet higher So business as usual.Seriously, I could not put this b [...]

      Frustrating, disturbing, elegant, overwhelming, heartbreaking, and brilliant.And that s about it.Wait Some things bear repeating Heartbreaking Brilliant.Now that s really it.

    21. Shandra on said:

      Initial thoughts see below for review WHAT THE FUCK I couldn t put this down So much happened Wow Best book in the series so far Review to come Review Actual rating A five plus star book No story spoilers This is going to be a tough one to write I ve been reading this series since 2006 I ve obviously slowly picked my way through these books Sometimes it was because while I was into the series, I wouldn t have the push or desire to pick up the next book Sometimes it was because I had way too many [...]

    22. Deborah Markus on said:

      Public Service Announcement This book ends on a cliffhanger Like, a lot You ll want to have the next book on hand well before you finish, in case the bookstore or library is closed when you turn that last page, forcing you to scream and throw things and maybe lose your security deposit.Second Public Service Announcement By the next book, I mean Ghost Story, not Side Jobs Ghost Story picks up where Changes leaves off Side Jobs is a collection of Dresden Files related short stories and may be very [...]

    23. Darren on said:

      Put simply started very strong and ended even stronger And I really do mean that.I ve been riding the Dresden wave for the better part of a few months now, having only started the reading the series in chronological order for the first time this year, and aside from Dead Beat, I d definitely put Changes up as my second favourite in the series thus far.I was very impressed with the pacing and tension how it climbed to a peak, hitting just before I thought it would keeping me on my toes , dropped [...]

    24. Carol. on said:

      Enjoyable Reads like an action film meets PI meets urban fantasy Still getting beat up, only this time, his bouncing back means making some questionable choices Still a sucker for the women in his life thankfully the people around him are able to point out his misconceptions It s less annoying than in the first books, when it was obvious to everyone, including Dresden, that he was being manipulated, but he was unable to help it and would lead him into disasterous situations This time his overdon [...]

    25. Alex Ristea on said:

      Everything converges in this book, and I mean everything.We ve always known that Dresden was a powerful wizard, but he usually restricts himself and refuses to go down certain paths However, with the kidnapping of his daughter, we get to see Harry on a rampage It is beautiful, in a terrifying sort of way.Almost all of the characters we ve seen in the previous books make an appearance in this one The plots, secrets, and pacts are perfectly woven together, and this culmination and convergence was [...]

    26. Regina on said:

      10 11 Re read If I could give this book than 5 stars I would Absolutely fantastic the second time around OMGGGGGGG Those of you who read it what do you think happened and by who So heart breaking how Harry was able to save you know who I felt so bad for him and her Review to come

    27. Valerie on said:

      Harry does it for me Smart, nerdy, wiseass, with a self destructive desire to do the right thing.

    28. Rumana Nasrin on said:

      What should I say about this particular book I m kind of short of words Seriously Mr Butcher You v earned my hatred and unconditional love at a time Oh Harry Poor soul
