I have high standards for quality of writing; these books are maybe a 6 or 7 out of 10 in that respect. Butcher does not have a delicate touch. But the quality of the plotting, of the story, the appeal of the characters and the performance of the narrator are really, really excellent. I have bought them all, listened to them all, and missed every single one when it ended. Harry Dresden is the kind of character you wish was real, and wish was your best friend. I enjoy all the time I spend in his company.
I have read and loved every one of Jim Butcher's books. I needed to take a long road trip so decided to try Turn Coat as an audio book. James Marsters is a wonderful narrator, brings the characters to life without using a bunch of hokey voices. I loved listening to it and was able to track the story well while I drove. I will definitely get another Butcher book and will be looking for anything else Marsters narrates.
Excellent listen! James Marsters once again nails Harry's personality dead on. The whodunit is ... wonderful. Jim Butcher delivers with this one! I highly recommend beginning at the beginning, reading or listening to the series in order, however this one could stand alone. Get snax and a beverage of choice, kick your feet up, and delve head-first into this one!
Dark changes for Michael and new twists and turns for Harry. Finding his way out this problem will be harder than ever.
Narration as always is great! The storyline is excellent and keeps you wanting more. Filled with humor and some sad twists. Keep them coming Jim!
Jim Butcher just gets better and better with each book. And, James Marster gets better and better with each one of these books that he narrates for audiobook. James Marster's use of voices (especially for tiny little fairies!) is fabulous! Very/VERY good job! This was a really fun book. Lots of intrigue and plot twists. And, the plotting was NOT cliche or easy to guess. Also, I really like the character development in this series. I look forward to listening to the next book!
This was by far my favorite book of the series to date. This book had almost a little bit of everything. White Court, Senior White Council, Morgan on the run, a new twist (the Skinwalker), and a partridge in a pear tree. Watching Butcher bring all these elements together and have Harry juggle everything was impressive. No spoilers here, but the White Council traitor plays a huge role in this book. Did Harry uncover him or not? It's worth the listen to find out.
I really enjoyed this book, it was one of the better ones in the series. I will miss Morgan as an antagonist. I can't say enough great things about James Marsters!
