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...Read more ›
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.
All in all I rate this Harry Dreden Book 11 a 4.5. A good read and I will continue with the series.
Quite simply the best of its kind, bar none.

This book I didn't really enjoy that much. Not sure what it was but it lacked something that I found with the dresden books and just didn't have the same flarePublished 3 months ago by Sean Talbot
