Just when you thought Harry Dresden had every problem a wizard could have, a new one appears.

And his problems pile up like so many skulls in the twelfth book of the Dresden Files series, which is appropriately titled "Changes." Jim Butcher's quirky sense of humor is still in place ("Ick! My lips touched dog lips!"), but this is definitely a darker twist in the series -- and Butcher seems intent on diving down into a place that's far darker, bloodier and scarier than most urban fantasy authors can even dream of.

Harry is understandably shocked when his ex-girlfriend Susan tells him that their daughter has been abducted by Duchess Arianna Ortega, a vampire of the Red Court who has a personal grudge against him. After all, he didn't even know he HAD a daughter. To make matters even worse, the supernatural world is on the verge of imploding because of the Red Court's war with the White Council, which means that Harry can't depend on his own kind for any actual help.

And what's more, Harry's being bombarded by assassins, giant Mayan demons, and hordes of Red Court vampires out to destroy/vampirize him. He has to gather as many allies as possible before Arianna puts her lethal plan into effect, and he might have to sacrifice his morals to do so. But even then, an all-out assault on the Red Court in their own territory will tax Harry and his little fellowship to the limits -- and will tear away even more of what he loves.

"Changes" is a painfully appropriate name for this book. Just about everything you know in the Dresden Files series changes here -- the enemies, the allies, the politics, the devastating losses and even the war against the Red Court.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me count the ways I love thee... Aug. 20 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Book 12 of the Dresden Files.

I have to say that Changes is the best book in the Dresden Files Series to date. So much happens in this instalment of Dresden's life. This books challenges Harry and some of those closest to him to battle the vicious Red Court. While calling in some favours Harry has to make some deals that he rather not have to and lead to future changes that all converge and take the reader on a hell of a global trip battling all sorts of nasties. You really find out who you can trust to have your back in this book.

Jim Butcher doesn't disappoint in pulling at those heart strings and making this book an epic battle ride between the love of a parent for their child and the extent one can take revenge against someone else.

There are lots of shocks in this twisted tale that will leave you gasping and cheering right to the last page. Dresden really finds out the kind of man he is and how deep his love can go for those dearest to him.

Jim Butcher hit it right out of the park with this latest Dresden File book.

5.0 out of 5 stars changes is right March 28 2010
This may in fact be the best one of the series. it marks the tipping point as the series moves closer to the finish and does so in all the awesomeness readers have come to expect from Butcher and Dresden. Secrets revealed, major twists and swerves. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the way to Thirteen May 10 2010
I'm not sure how to review this book without giving away too much. First of all, we find out that Harry has a daughter on page 1. And then things get interesting!

There are so many revelations, so many twists and turns, I was holding my breath most of the time. I plowed my way through every chapter, finding more information, previous story line sort-of coming together. I say sort-of because every revelation almost always led to many more questions. Which made the ending that much more surprising.

The thing about the Dresden Files is that as the serie goes, you are introduced to many incredible characters. They are not incredible because they are perfect. It's actullay the opposite. They are imperfect and there is rarely a situation, decision or event that is just Black & White. Heroes and villains come in all shapes and forms and they tend to have a mix of both wrapped into one. Harry is the main guy but you start caring about all the perephery players. A lot.

This is book 12 of the Desden Files and unlike many other serie, this one is still fresh and interesting. Makes me very mad I have to wait a year for the next book. Lucky number 13?

As all the other Dresden files books, the last one is an excellent read, fast paced, full of twists and turns, with a great ending. I absolutely love all the characters and impatiently await the next release.

I haven't read a bad Jim Butcher book yet. My husband who is not an avid reader is completely hooked and asking me when the next one comes in. Changes in particular was very good all the way to the unexpected cliffhanger and ending. LOVED IT!
