Book Description

16 April 2009 Dresden Files 11
Harry Dresden, professional wizard, has done his best to keep his nose clean where the White Council of Wizards is concerned. Even so, his past misdeeds have cast a constant shadow of suspicion over him in the eyes of the Wardens, those wizards responsible for enforcing the Laws of Magic. Now Dresden finds himself faced with a nightmarish dilemma: Morgan, formerly his chief persecutor among the Wardens, has been wrongly accused of treason against the White Council - and has come to Harry for help. Dresden faces a daunting task: clear Morgan's name while simultaneously hiding him from the Wardens and the supernatural bounty hunters sent to find him, discover the identity of the true turncoat and, of course, avoid accusations of treachery of his own. A single mistake may mean that heads - quite literally - will roll. And one of them could be his own ...

Review

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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn coat, turning point 10 April 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
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 Yet another great read from Jim 20 April 2009
By B.L.
Format:Hardcover
The adventures of Harry Dresden continue in this book, and if you've been following the books I will spare you from the recap, and avoid including a paragraph that would effectively be a blurb.

With the events of the last book the White Council has run into hard times, and things turn from bad to worse as they are beset by enemies from all sides and they start to fracture from within.

There is some great character development amongst members of the White Council, Harry's relationship with the werewolves, and Thomas's fight against himself is explored further... and it seems to have turned for the worse.

There is once again, to be expected from Jim great action and mayhem in this book. It's definitely a landmark in the series as things become more sinister for Harry and the White Council than ever before, and the storm clouds haven't even started rolling in yet.

If you're already reading the series, I doubt this review will make much of a impact as you'll probably get to this book eventually. So all I can say is. Pre-order the next one. It's worth it, and in between the wait for new Dresden Files books - read Codex Alera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changes 10 April 2009
Format:Hardcover
Let it be known I am an avid reader. After lending Proven Guilty a few years ago and reading it cover to cover in one afternoon I bought the rest and emerged a week later craving another Dresden novel.

Those who read the series will have their own opinions of course, but I really liked this book, though the ending was sad for Harry I think. Don't worry, no spoilers here.

If you are just browsing and wondering about taking the plunge, don't worry. Grab!

A bit about the series, Harry is a Wizard in Chicago who runs a P.I service and helps the local police with supernatural crimes. A good guy living under a shadow for past deeds trying to do the good thing.

The books have a bit of almost everything, they cover vampires and werewolves, daemons and fairies, wizards and gangsters. I really like them I think mainly because they are not too out there...seems strange to say that about a book with fairies in it but there it was. They have a very gritty feel to them, Jim draws you in and makes you interested with the characters. The books have all kinds of side stories (relationships, funny events etc) and they all come together nicely in a book or as part of story arcs. If you like a bit of magic and mystery/action this is the book series for you.

Highly Recommended 'Dude!' (when you read the book you will get the joke :))

3.0 out of 5 stars Magic Formula 6 Jan 2011
By Rotgut VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
As easy and welcoming as a favourite old pair of slippers, the latest Harry Dresden novel is deep in Jim Butcher's comfort zone, with well established supporting cast and set of locations. Although masquerading as a gritty, sexy , violent Chicago-set cross-genre PI/Fantasy novel, at heart this series is very soft centred. At times, with a super intelligent dog taking centre stage, it almost resembles an episode of "Lassie"

Butcher is obviously very fond of his fictional creations, especially his protagonist, the wizard Harry Dresden who is also the narrator of this successful long running series of enjoyable books. A minor irritant in these tales is how most of the other characters can't wait to fall over themselves to help our hero. So, in this book, we meet Vince Graver, a PI hired to work against Dresden; in less than 5 pages, won over by nothing more than Harry's charisma and charm, Graver is working ably for the good guys. Reprehensible demon summoning baddie Binder and even uber-nasty Skinwalker monster can't help but express admiration for the wizard.

Perhaps the closing scene of "Turn Coat", implying a tabletop RolePlaying game inspiration for this series, gives a clue as to why Butcher is so attached to his hero...maybe Harry Dresden started life as Butcher's game set alter-ego?

The story of "Turn Coat" centre on a search for a traitor in the "White Council" of good(ish) mages. An interesting plot development would have been possible here, if one of the more established allies of Dresden was revealed as being traitorous.Certainly a surfeit of potential allies was available. Instead a dull and predictable enemy is, I'm afraid, uncovered.

Not been disappointed by this series yet - I love the fact that Dresden is such a flawed hero, who has to live with his mistakes - makes him much more 'real'.
