I just finished… CHANGES (The Dresden Files, Book 12) By Jim Butcher
I read the end of this book last Thursday and started to write my review of it, but I proceeded to stare at the blank screen for a good ten minutes. I realized I needed to let it sink in because this book lived up to its name–it changed things. Everything really. And I wasn’t entirely sure what the next book would bring.
From the beginning, this book was emotional. The very first line had me hooked. I didn’t want to put it down. I had to find out what happened. Which is a mark of a good book by anyone’s definition. If I hadn’t read the previous eleven books, and been so invested in the characters, the beginning wouldn’t have had such a strong hook. But I had, so it did.
Harry Dresden and Susan Rodriguez have a child. A daughter that Susan never told him about. And of course, the Red Court of vampires took her.
The rest of the book is about getting the child–Maggie–back. Like all of Butcher’s Dresden books, it’s never that simple. There are a lot of parts moving behind the scenes, and we learn some other surprises, some of them little and some huge.
I had one big part in the plot that bothered me, to save anyone from spoilers, it’s hidden at the very bottom unless you want to read it.
I have to read the next one, because I HAVE TO KNOW how in the HELL Butcher’s going to continue this, though I have to think Demonsreach is involved. Somehow…
Loved the book ♥♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥
Loved the audiobook ♥♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ (Seriously, anyone would doesn’t find Marsters amazing as the narrator of these books needs their head examined.)
