Publisher's Summary

The new novel in the #1 New York Times best-selling Dresden Files series. 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.

Absolutely Amazing Emotional Rollercoaster

The peak, and end of what could be considered the first half of the Dresden Files. Jim Butcher's writing at it's finest, with multiple scenes of emotional turmoil that you can't help but resonating with, and enhanced a thousand-fold by James Marsters emotive narration. Absolutely the best book in the series (so far).

Gobsmackingly good

Jim takes Harry in new directions and messes with his darlings in a wickedly fast paced story of secrets and vengeance. James Masters voices for each character are beautiful interpretations.

complex but a good step along the storyline

I do enjoy the Dresden series but sometimes the high energy activity seems to go on a bit too long . with a book of skip ahead! love the narration though and looking forward to the next book 😁

It's all change

It's all changing.....a good plot twist lobbed in at the start of the book sets the scene for a new direction for Harry and his team/friends.

Another 5 star instalment to this series. I am not even remotely getting bored with this saga - indeed have just nervously checked to see how many books there are left in this series as I'm already worried about what I'm going to resort to when its done.

James Marsters is superb, as ever.

If you haven't yet started this series - treat yourself! Start at the beginning though, cos it's a fun, fun ride.

Oh my God, I had to stay up all night to finish this book. It has to be the best of the Dresden files so much happens! The title is very apt.
There are so many changes , it is an amazing book, ypu have to read the others 1st to understand but I guarantee you won't be able to put this down or turn it off.

James Marsters narration is sublime. He intones every character and brings them to life.

Harry Dresden is getting me through this pandemic!

In the past I've come and gone with this series, listened to a couple, become exasperated with Jim Butcher's weird ideas about women and left again. But the gripping, absorbing stories have become a mainstay now, when I need escapism. I also think he's got better on women - just needs to own his sexuality and everything will be hunky dory. This book was one of the most gripping in the series. Butcher managed, just about, to veer away from outright mawkishness when writing about Maggie, and James Marsters, always great, excelled himself, especially at the end, bring just enough emotion to the reading without going over the top. I was genuinely moved.

I'm on Book 13 now and just hope we're out the other end of Covid 19 before the series runs out. Jim Butcher better keep writing, and fast.

Changes

Would you listen to Changes: The Dresden Files, Book 12 again? Why?

Oh yes, I have read the Hardback when it first released and couldn't wait for it to be released in Audio format. It did take a while for it to be available on Audible. The story is fast paced, witty and connects a few dots whilst creating a lot more. I found that by listening to this, after reading Ghost Story, there was lots of little things that I had missed and help unravel more of the overall story arc.

What did you like best about this story?

The development of characters previously briefly glimpsed.

What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

He makes a great Harry, a great voice. Also love his Bob voice too.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Oh cripes... No, I can't do this without dropping plot clangers, sorry.

Any additional comments?

This is the twelfth book in the series and doesn't make a great stand-alone listen. However fans of Harry Dresden books won't be disappointed by these audiobooks.

I didn't cry! You cried!

Ok, without saying too much, I was bawling at the end. I finished listening to this audio book in 2 days. A number of backstories answered! I have to say...one of my favourite characters done by James Marsters is Toot Toot! At least in the 12 books I have listened to, this is the only consistent voice he does.

The best Dresden story so far

The life of Harry Dresden is never simple, and this volume in particular is pretty good. A lot of changes, a lot of things stay the same. What a wonderful book, definitely one of the best if not the best until now.

over the top dramatic indulgence

all the little things building up in previous books pile in to produce an over the top, fantastical and dramatic show down. its satisfying and very enjoyable.
