"Screw this Zen crap. Maybe she'll be early."

What follows this line of dialogue from Harry Dresden, Wizard and Warden Of The White Council - amongst other dubiously accrued titles - is typical Dresden Files pathos and Jim C. Butcher setting up the next level in Harry's Hero Journey.

Harry has nothing left at the end of this one. Butcher has taken his hero and stripped him of everything. Not just his worldly possessions but his moral integrity and self respect too.

Ballsy, Butcher. Very ballsy. And Butcher uses the only lever that would propel Harry to such desperate straits.

Family.

The price Harry pays to protect them, cost him and his friends around them dearly. Harry also carries the additional burden of the price paid by his closest friends and his apprentice.

Changes is no doubt an inference to the David Bowie song but by the end of his one, Butcher could have invoked The Doors - Break On Through To The Other Side just as easily.

Changes is a real capper. What is left of a person soul when you take everything away? Can't wait to find out the answer in the next book!

Highest recommendation possible.

Wow. Wow. I can hardly wait to read the next one. Man I love the Dresden series, and this one is the best yet. And the short story that comes after it makes so much sense now -- and is really, really good, and neat because it's from Murphys pov. Loved them both.

Like many other people I feel that this book didn't end prematurely enough. I highly suggest that you borrow 'Ghost Story' at the same time and read both back to back. The end of this book really *should* operate as the beginning of the next book in the series.

what can I say? I will read every scrap of napkin Jim Butcher has composed words upon until I die. I love, love, love this author's works.

Wow! I love this series. What a horrible choice Susan had to make, and Dresden as well. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

Definitely the first cliffhanger in the Dresden Files, but nonetheless, another satifying great read as expected from Butcher.

Great addition to the Harry Dresden series! Jim Butcher has a way with words and I finished this book way too fast!! Can't wait for the next installment.
