Changes: by Jim Butcher



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.

Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry. To prevail this time, he may have no choice but to embrace the raging fury of his own untapped dark power. Because Harry's not fighting to save the world...

He's fighting to save his child.


Over the past decade Jim Butcher has pushed the limits to our imagination through his Dresdan Files series. He has become the leader in urban fantasy and fantasy genres. And he has done it with books that have transcended past the normal fan base of science fiction and fantasy readers into other interests, earning his books spots on numerous awards lists, including numerous appearances on the New York Times Bestseller list.

And through all of this Butcher has created a web of fascinating plot lines that entice and captivate readers worldwide. Yet it is in this book, and this book alone that leaves me speechless in wake of the conclusion. I wont say more about the way this book ends for fear of giving anything away, but I implore that you read it yourself.

Changes is the heart pounding 12th book in the Dresdan Files. It contains all the aspects that can be expected in a Jim Butcher book; action, plot twists, and most importantly good writing. Jim Butcher is my favorite fantasy writer, and he has earned this position by writing sensational books that even the most skeptical of the fantasy genre would enjoy.

But what makes Changes different from all Butchers other books is that it is in this book that some important answers are answered about Harry’s past and some decisions are made that will change the course of this series and Harry’s life forever.

Because of this and because this book is one of the best books in the series I would recommend this book to anyone. I implore readers to read the entire series as the plot builds upon each book, but when those who do follow my advice finish this book they will thank me for introducing them to one of the best fantasy series out today.

Of course those of you that want something more for their experience, Jim Butcher himself will be in Houston at MURDER BY THE BOOK on April 6th to begin his tour for Changes. Here is the link for Butcher’s tour schedule for Changes, and I encourage those of you interested in good fantasy to stop by and meet the king of fantasy.
