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.

I took off my headphones and screamed, “Holy Shit!” or a slightly more colored variation, but people, Changes by Jim Butcher, the twelfth novel in the Harry Dresden Files was intense, mind-blowing, hilarious, heartbreaking and full of twisted fuckery. Yeah OK, I liked it.

As is my drug of choice, I listened to the narrations of James Marsters. He has become the voice of these characters and I could not imagine Harry without him.

Oh, where to begin. Let me just get this off my chest before I burst…we hear Mouse speak. It was brilliant! Perfection. I laughed so hard I had tears and we were in the middle of some intense shite when it happened.

You might remember I am not a big Susan fan. Well, in Changes I decided I hate her. Strong words I know, but she reveals a secret to Harry that floored me and might just get Harry killed. Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court will use that secret against Harry. You’ll need to buckle up and bring supplies before beginning Changes because once you begin you won’t be able to put it down.

I laughed, screamed, got angry, cheered and was left in a fetal position by the time all was said and done. If I haven’t convinced you to pick up this series by now, all hope is lost. Changes is a pivotal novel and I am anxious to see what Side Jobs, (#12.5) brings.

    I have to admit, I have long given up on this series — though this sounds like a strong installment. I’d forgotten that JM does these narrations

    I hate Susan I was never her fan and wish she would go away. Awesome to see you go strong with this series.

    It doesn’t get much better than “twisted fuckery”, lol. I just love that you’re 12 books into this and it can still get a reaction like this from you. That’s the sign of a pretty incredible series for sure.

    Yep, this one sounds like a heavy hitter with all the reactions it brought out in you. This series is screaming my name. 🙂

    Well, it seems this elicited quite the array in emotions from you. I am still on the waitlist for book one. Should be getting it soon!
