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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There’s plenty to like in this most recent volume in the Dresden Files. Harry continues to be a complex character who marches to his own drummer...[and] the secondary characters continue to be wonderful, especially Molly, Murphy, and Sanya.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Fast-paced and compelling...Butcher is deft at relieving some of the tension and grimness with bursts of gallows humor that keep readers coming back for more.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Narrator James Marsters...uses just the right amount of snarkiness and wit to make his characters sound real. His female characters are effective, and his pace adds to the excitement.”

    AudioFile

  • “The taut and sometimes twisty plot is full of surprises and changes for Harry and his friends and family. Changes is a compelling installment in what continues to be an outstanding series...After the cliff-hanger ending, readers will be clamoring for the next book. A can’t-miss entry in one of the best urban fantasy series currently being published.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “This excellent twelfth entry in Butcher’s...Dresden Files series...shows the author’s continuing ability to keep readers and listeners up way past midnight...Actor/series narrator James Marsters delivers his usual pitch-perfect performance, personifying Dresden and mastering all sorts of creatures with the enthusiasm his listeners have come to expect...Highly recommended.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny | 2/1/2014

    " The title says it all. Begins with a shock and ends with a shock, awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaras | 1/31/2014

    " Quite good. I read it as a combination of an ebook and an audiobook, depending on the situation, and as usual James Marsters did an excellent job narrating. Starker ending than expected, but fitting, as it's not a happy story, although still inspiring and humorous in places. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mookeypoop Vo | 1/25/2014

    " Sees the end of what could have been the death of the wizard council there are only few minor complication that i hated but overall fanstatic book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Serge | 1/18/2014

    " This is the first title that breaks from the two word pun in the series and I thought it was a cheap trick to over emphasize this particular story line. I was wrong. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed this series. However, this book is hands down my favorite. The ending of this novel should make this book a classic American literary masterpiece. I've been processing the book for the last three days. Still taking it in. Picking up the series is worth it, if only to get to this culmination of events. What a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evgeni Latuhin | 1/14/2014

    " Amazing stuff of work. Just wow. Mouse talk and such ^^. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Phule | 1/11/2014

    " There is little room to review this book AND not leave spoilers. The title is Changes and that into it's self is a spoiler. But the book titles have always been a spoiler. If you like the other books and you have read this far, read it. You will not like all of the outcome but it is a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Ryan | 1/4/2014

    " Gloriously tragic climax. "

    " Hell's bells. Best Dresden yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brent Knorr | 4/11/2013

    " Reread this one in December 2011, it may be the best Dresden book so far. It certainly lives up to it's title of "Changes". There are multiple points in the book where I was left thinking "I can't believe he just did that!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 9/2/2012

    " The crappy sopranos ending ruined what had been an enjoyable series of books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Cooley | 7/21/2012

    " Quite possibly the most exciting of the Dresden series in a long time. The book ends in such a way that I immediately wanted to get the next in the series, but I wasn't willing to fork out $14.99 to the publisher for a freakin' ebook. Highly recommended though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Adkins | 6/24/2012

    " Holy freaking crap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ambre | 1/17/2012

    " By far my favorite of the series. The books had started to feel sort of repetitive and a bit disconnected to me in the last few, but this one really shook things up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D Edmiston | 11/26/2011

    " this & ghost story were the best 2 of the whole series. the first few were pretty hohum so wasn't a fan but am now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke Barnhard | 8/29/2011

    " I rated all the other Dresden files as 4 stars just so I could rate changes as a five. This is the best book Jim butcher has ever written. This is my favorite books series by far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily M | 7/13/2011

    " My first fluff-book after grad school! I love this series -- not overly complicated, just plain good fun. Mostly runs on its excellent character-development, which is just fine by me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael David Cobb | 5/20/2011

    " The most scaled up conflict ever, with the most incredible ending possible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 5/18/2011

    " This is an apt title for a book that breaks down a lot of the series previously established boundaries. I think the novel itself highlights the importance of establishing and reinforcing strict limitations in longer running series, because it is that much cooler when they get broken down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 5/12/2011

    " I picked this up via digital download from the library. I don't usually choose the vampire genre; however, did enjoy the read. Butcher's style was humorous, easy to identify with the main character. The plot was complex enough; although, I had to adjust to the various magic elements.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 5/9/2011

    " No one else could make the death of a main character so casual, ironic, and, somehow, funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/9/2011

    " Damn! I was pissed they put off the publication of the next book from April 2011 to July 2011. I want the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/6/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Macaela | 4/28/2011

    " What would you do if your child was in danger? That is something that Dresden must figure out. It doesn't start well and as with everything with him, it doesn't always go according to the way he thinks it should. "

About the Author
Author Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. He read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old—The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight, he’d added the rest of the Narnia books, the Chronicles of Prydain, every book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels, and The Lord of the Rings to his count. He was pretty much doomed from the start. Love of fantasy drew him toward a fairly eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding, archery, martial arts, costuming, music, and theater. He played a lot of role-playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and eventually got into live-action role-play. He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until, just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every piece of her advice. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways. The result was the Dresden Files. She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on writing. Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera. He has plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one.
