    1. I often have a difficult time reviewing books in a series, so I ll just say this one thing I m continually thrilled by the fact that every event in the Dresden Files series is relevant to the struggle in Turn Coat So many authors miss the why why start a series at a certain point in time Why is the main character the focal point, how are they special Why does anything happen Jim Butcher has an answer for each question and I want to hug him for it Once again, he serves up sacrifices and tough blo [...]


    2. I KNEW IT Well part of it at least.I never guess the bad guy and I guessed it here pats self on back Though the simple solution is never the entire answer, thanks to the brilliant mind of Jim Butcher What can I say that I haven t said before This was another expertly narrated audiobook by one of my all time faves, James Marsters, who was in fine form Brilliant, moving, twisty and turny just another excellent addition to the Dresden Files series, which has become one of my all time favorites I ho [...]


    3. In absolute fairness my reading of this novel suffered from two things.First and foremost this is the only Harry Dresden novel I have ever read While enjoyable I am certain that I would have benefitted greatly in knowing about Dresden s world from the earlier novels in the series Secondly, I started this right on the heels of having read On South Mountain The Dark Secrets Of The Goler Clan a vile true account of what life was like for the children of the Goler Clan of Nova Scotia It has seeped [...]


    4. Another question for my non southern friends is it really a problem for you if a man opens a door for you Because Harry keeps saying that he s a chauvinist for doing things like opening doors for women, and that Murphy gets mad when he does it for her, but that s just crazy talk to me Crazy talk Because, here in Texas, where I live, a man is expected to open a door for a woman It doesn t matter what age either the male or female is, or the health of either If you have a penis, you are the design [...]


    5. God, it was great reading about Harry Dresden again This one was spectacular Lots of magic and Harry s humor It also kept me in the dark for quite a while.The hunt for the Black Council continues so it seems, and I will certainly be reading all about it I closed the door behind me, while life went on.


    6. I was planning on quitting this series if this one didn t measure up Looks like I m sticking around.Morgan shows up at Harry s house with the Wardens on his trail, framed for murder Harry goes about trying to clear Morgan s name, all the while dealing with a summoner named Binder and a demon called the Skinwalker Meanwhile, the Wardens are coming to Chicago and it looks like the White Court of the vampires is linked to the mysterious Black Circle of wizards Harry is sure exists.Why am I sticking [...]


    7. This time Harry Dresden, Wizard detective, is trying to find the traitor in the White Council, after Morgan shows up on his doorstep on the lam for a crime he didn t commit and Harry realized that hes got to either turn Morgan in or help him out and get blamed for helping a criminal.The good things We get to see of the White Council, find out about Morgan, Luccio and Listen to Wind We also see a bit of why the Council thinks about Harry the way they do, and some awesome magic I once read a max [...]


    8. 8 10I ll just look through my previous Dresden reviews and copy and paste it here I m running out of things to say on this series now that would provide anything new or insightful not that I previously did provide those things anyway This was as good as the previous few novels keeping up what the series is good at mysterious plot needing Harry to do some detective work whilst maintaining an ability to throw some quips around and using the assistance of those characters he s previously been able [...]


    9. 3.5 StarsThis book was a little predictable, in my opinion Maybe not the supernatural threat in this book, because that was new, but quite a few different things were extremely predictable, and I figured out the whodunnit way, way early I almost never put all the pieces together before Harry does, but in this one, I did over and over That s not to say that I didn t enjoy the book I really did Harry is his usual snarkrageous self, and I loved him Things got dicey here, and the tension was pretty [...]


    10. Finally We dig into the wizarding White Council and find out about how it operates and the many interesting characters involved Delightful politicking ensued left and right, and it was really fun to see how Dresden fit in or stuck out, depending on how you look at it My favorite elements of Turn Coat were the settings and the mystery surrounding the Council I had lots of theories on whodunit, and even though none of them turned out to be correct, I love it when books get me so involved.Via The [...]


    11. Man, I love Mouse I even love Butters.This one kept me guessing I kept thinking I knew who it was but I was inevitably surprised.Thomas broke my heart, but he always does.I m going to have such book drop when I get all caught up with these books and have to wait for the next.


    12. 8 10 o 4 estrellas de las completas.Durante un tiempo cre que no volver a a leer a Harry en castellano, as que decir que estoy encantado es quiz s quedarme corto.Me ha gustado volver a leer al personaje de Dresden, uno de los mejores protagonistas que he le do y con el que es imposible no empatizar.Tambi n me ha gustado la trama y el desenlace En ambos casos me han sorprendido para bien La trama por el enorme n mero de posibilidades que abre para las futuras lecturas y el desenlace por temerme q [...]


    13. First read 5 14 August, 2010 Re read 8 28 May, 2012.The carnage level was rather high, and the damage inflicted by the skinwalker and White Court was quite grisly At least it wasn t all for shock value there was some emotional punch to it On the second reading, I found my eyes getting misty a few times This installment of Harry s adventures hit the ground running and covered a lot of ground It s dark but surprisingly good Lots of bad things happening everywhere, but lots of heroism and it s put [...]


    14. okayi give upi have been giving this series 4 stars the whole way thoughbut lets face it is a five star series i guess i just didn t want to give an urban fantasy series four stars because there would be something unfair about it being that goodbut the fact is they really are that good this series is on its eleventh book and is going just as strong if not so now that it was when it was first started by butcher this one turns the view around to the white counsel and some of the infighting that i [...]


    15. I have loved reading listening to this series I not only love Harry, but the other characters too I don t think Jim Butcher has created a single one that I haven t appreciated.even the evil ones I liked this book than the last one in the series It was true Harry Dresden vanquishing the evil and carrying on He has great friends that shined in this one I like that they are all given moments in the spotlight and aren t just tools used to move the story forward They feel like they all belong to the [...]


    16. Re read Review, February 2018 As with almost every book in this series, I liked it better this time I ve said this before, but there are advantages to reading the hard copies of the books, as much as I love the audio versions with James Marsters And one of those advantages is it just takes so much less time to read a physical book, and stuff that you re not enjoying either goes faster or you can skip it outright I remember when I read this book the first time it just felt a little too long, a li [...]


    17. Executive Summary While this one is a bit slow in parts it sets the stage nicely for what currently stands as the best book in the series Changes.Audio book James Marsters is terrible in this one Just Kidding Still great Highlights for this are his voice for the big baddie and I think he changed gave TootToot a distinct voice that is both hilarious and AWESOME.Full Review I love being a wizard Every day is like Disneyland Murder Conspiracy Evil You know, politics Just think about how bad the US [...]


    18. A very enjoyable entry in the Dresden series The story starts off with a bang me idiot was pounding on my apartment door.I answered it and Morgan, half his face covered in blood, gasped, The Wardens are coming Hide me Please Wha Morgan, the most hard assed stickler for letter of the law Warden is in trouble with the White Council, accused of treason, and he goes to see his nemesis, Harry, for help And not just any sort of help but the kind that under different circumstances Morgan would execute [...]


    19. Turn Coat is number 11 in the Harry Dresden series and I thought that maybe things would be getting a little stale by now, but, no Jim Butcher has secured his crown as King of Urban Fantasy in my mind Harry gets better and better with each story It amazes me when an author can create a world as rich and three dimensional in my mind as the real world with nothing than words.Harry is surrounded by treachery in this one and the depth of it is even than he has perceived He could take the easy out [...]


    20. Read this review and at Book Geeks Uncompromised So taking a break from this series definitely did it some good After nearly binge reading them, one at least every other week, I was getting really burnt out on them.Harry is back in this eleventh installment of The Dresden Files This book kind of showed a different side to the White Council, the police force of wizardkind, as Warden Morgan shows up on Harry s doorstep begging for asylum as the Council hunts him down for the murder of a senior co [...]


    21. One of the Best of the Series 4.5 StarsSince I can only give half stars in spirit, I will give it 5 but call it 4.5 It is the second best book in the series to this point trailing behind Dead Beat Butcher continues to prove that he is a master storyteller by continually expanding the Dresden Universe while avoid staleness or repeating storylines While there were a few issues that caused it to lose half a star, it is excellent and highly recommended series.Plot summary The story opens with Morgan [...]


    22. Jim Butcher doesn t waste any time getting to the action I like that Things start off with a bang for Harry and it doesn t stop Harry is approached by his White Counsel nemesis, Donald Morgan, who asks for help He is being accused of a murder that he didn t commit He asks Harry to risk his own life to help find out who is framing him Of course, Harry agrees Harry s werewolf friend, Will and Georgia, are back to help Thomas and Molly as well Detective Murphy makes a couple of appearances as well, [...]


    23. This was a great one The moment Morgan showed up all wounded and asking for help, I knew it was going to be awesome.Morgan hasn t exactly been a friend to Harry in the past, but I can t help but like him I d envisioned a long partnership between the two of them after the events of Turn Coat, made interesting by the unique dynamics between the two men Needless to say, I was a little disappointed at how the book ended.Several other chapters in the ongoing drama of Harry s life also came to a clos [...]



    24. Second review, read from June 10 11, 2010.As with my review of Small Favor, I will refer you to my first review for this book I m not even going to add many notes, because I like my original review that much, and I doubt I could improve upon it significantly.The only thing I have to say is that re reading the series in quick succession has given me a better context in which to appreciate Turn Coat Even though I only gave it four stars, it s still better than some five star books I ve read, and i [...]


    25. Turn Coat by Jim Butcher started out rather slow At first, I wasn t into the whole Morgan being framed for murder thing The book became a straight police procedural for awhile and there were scenes that didn t grip me Then around the 60% point, once Harry gets to the island, and talks to the spirit, it became amazing The scenes on the island and fighting the shapeshifter were fantastic The ending scene at the White Council hearing was so good and intense It s weird how this series really can sti [...]


    26. I loved this I ve been wanting information about the whole Black Council problem, and this book finally delivered although I still want to know I especially like with this series how the characters have not remained static I m SO glad Harry has progressed matured enough to realize that every bad thing that happens is not his fault, and I really like seeing his determination to do the right thing In this book, he helps an old enemy and said enemy is still really a jerk and yet validly needs hel [...]


    27. Book Info Genre Urban FantasyReading Level Adult Recommended for Fans of Urban FantasyShort Stories Reviews First, before reading Turn Coat, I read two of the short stories from the anthologies, Curses and AAAA Wizardry, since I had PDF copies of them Curses is basically about someone hiring Dresden on behalf of a corporation to try to remove a curse Can t say than that without ruining it, but it s a fun story I absolutely love the Welsh folklore that is used in the story, and recommend you rea [...]


    28. The first week of April is no longer just the time of year to look forward to silly pranks Now it s the time of year to look forward to our annual check in with Jim Butcher s Harry Dresden.I ve said before that I believe Butcher s series about Chicago based wizard Harry Dresden to be the best on going fantasy series on the market today I ve even gone out on a limb and said that I think the series is better than a certain other best selling series about a wizard named Harry.And with the latest en [...]
