Product Description


'Dresden is the epitome of the detective/fantasy crossover, a hardboiled magical PI with a line in snappy backchat ... As always Butcher has delivered a page turner, gripping from start to finish. Great stuff' DeathRay --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremenously enjoyable the second time around Nov. 24 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have waited a number of years before reading my paperback collection of the Dresden novels for the second time. As a prolific reader of fantasy fiction, there has not been a series as good, and every time I read contemporary novels in the same genre, I am struck by the "borrowing" that goes on, a great compliment to Jim Butcher.
Quite simply the best of its kind, bar none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old grudges don't get in the way with Harry July 30 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the spin in this book. Up until this point Warden Morgan has consistently loomed over Harry ready to strike out and kill him. This time he needed Harry's help and after some quick thoughts on taking on this case when Morgan shows up half dead on his doorstep.

It was nice to see the character grow by helping someone that has been so scary and a real threat to his personal safety in his life. He definitely learns some troubling things while investigating the death of a Senior Council member and this crusty old Warden.

While I had a bit of a tough time getting through parts of the book before this one, I found this book back to steady, gripping story writing at it's best.

Looking forward to Changes, the next book in the Dresden Files. I rate Turn Coat as 5/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn coat, turning point April 9 2009
Morgan has always been a major thorn in Harry Dresden's side. So of course, he appears on Harry's doorstep, half dead and convicted of murder.

But that's only one of the problems facing Jim Butchers wizard PI in the eleventh Dresden Files Book,. The aptly named "Turn Coat is half whodunnit and half magical thriller, with plenty of explosive magic, hard-nosed wizards, deadly conspiracy and plenty of grotesque monsters and vampires. What's more, Butcher pulls some brilliant plot twists out of his hat, including some that are sure to wrench the heart.

An injured Morgan turns up at Harry's door, hunted by Wardens and convicted of murdering Aleron LaFortier for the Red Court. Even worse, it's an airtight case against him.

But Harry can't bring himself to believe that Morgan could ever do something treacherous (even if Morgan is a big bottom-pain). His investigations take him on an unpleasant tightrope to vampire hangouts and the Council HQ, where he learns that LaFortier's death could -- if left unpunished -- lead to a very messy civil war between the weakened wizard factions. In other words, the Black Council is making a move.

And Harry has problems close to him as well -- a price on Morgan's head, the Binder's ectoplasmic hordes, and a chilling immortal monster of Native American legend called a naagloshii (skinwalker). When the naagloshii kidnaps Thomas and trashes the Raith mansion, Harry must find a way not only of saving his brother and Morgan from certain death -- but unveiling the traitor within the Council as well. Hard to do when everyone is very, very mad at you...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! April 13 2009
This was an amazing installment of the Harry Dresden series, and as usual I hated for my reading to come to an end. Jim Butcher again pulls us into Chicago, and into Harry's world where we experience what he does and feel as he does. I liked that the members of the White Council were more rounded, and that that we were able to see more of Molly and of Mouse. I loved it when Mai and the rest of them completely trust the "testimony" of the Foo dog and all the scenes earlier of Mouse restraining the guests in Harry's home. I like how Butcher deals with Harry's romantic life, somethings just never change, but some do! I am not looking for him and Murphy to get together, she had her chance. I liked seeing how the White court worked with the wardens, and thought Lara intriguing despite her treatment of her cousin (so deserved!) Can't wait for the next book!
