Publisher's Summary

The new novel in the hit New York Times best-selling Dresden Files series.

The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council - and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden....

Now, Harry must uncover a traitor within the Council, keep a less-than-agreeable Morgan under wraps, and avoid coming under scrutiny himself. And a single mistake may cost someone his head - someone like Harry

Worthy Addition To The Series

Fast paced. Excellent narration. And Harry Dresden is, as always, an appealing protagonist.

It's possible to appreciate the book as a paranormal mystery stand-alone without a great deal of knowledge of what has gone on before. However, I think it helps to be familiar with the series as a whole since almost all of the characters in the novel were introduced in previous installments of the series.

Another great book in the series

This series just keeps getting better and better. Harry has now developed a much fuller personal and professional life which is translated very well in the story. The plot line is fast moving, an easy listen and you are easily capable of keeping track of what is going on. I cannot even think of anyone except James Marsters of being the voice(s) of this series. His Toot-Toot impression is hilarious and actually makes me laugh out loud while driving in the car. I have missed turn offs on the freeway just being so engrossed in the story and the narration. Please start at the first book and work your way up to really appreciate the progression of the characters and the story lines. I have turned several friends on to this book series and they also are hooked now. Well worth it. Please write/release book 12 soon. Can't wait.

Hell's Bells...the best in the series!

Harry has come into his own with a network of close friends and family....at least for now. Highly recommend you read the books in order. Harry's warden responsibilities, mentoring, friend and lover roles take him in varying paths that are threatened by different entities and problems. Molly has grown and her role is expanded. The brother relationship of Thomas and Harry is challenged with a numbing and heartfelt result. The organization of the Wizard council is also explored and made very real from the headquarters in Scotland to the wizards themselves. The storyline is engaging with twists and turns, laughter and tears.

The narrator is excellent! From now on, I will only hear Harry through his voice. He is 5 stars all the way...the best male voice for the job! Bravo and kudos for the selection because it made the story all the more better!

Turn coat does not dissapoint.

One thing I really like about JB's Dresden books, besides the perfect voice JM lends to the Dresden series, is that JB's characters are continually evolving, unlike other lead charters in popular series. For instance, in Turn Coat you see how dramatically Dresden has changed from the reckless, but smart/lucky knight in dented armor found in the early books, to someone who has learned his lesson and thinks before he jumps. That Turn Coat gave readers a whole book of Morgan and Dresden verbally sparring with each other didn't hurt either...

The reason to get audio books

I've been a Jim Butcher fan for a long time, and have read the previous Harry Dresden books at least twice each. Listening to James Marster put his immersive spin on these familiar characters adds a completely new and compelling aspect to these books and for me the reason to get these on audio. If Audible can get all the previous Dresden books read by Marster, I would buy them all, and see it as another yet new opportunity to get into the Dresden stories.

Worth the time and money

Butcher has said he plans for the series to go for 20 books or so, and it can be tough to create stories that stand on their own while still moving the subplots forward. I thought "Small Favor" did that well. This is one that relies heavily on the past books to understand the motivations of the characters, and it lays the groundwork for new stories. It is a very enjoyable mystery with good characters, a villain that you don't suspect until near the end, and some insights into the Dresden universe. It was well worth the money and time.

Marsters *is* Harry Dresden as far as I'm concerned. In just two audio books, he has jumped into the top 5 of my list of favorite readers. Hopefully, he can be contracted to do other books because he has a true talent for this work.

Another great Dresden File.

A good addition to the series. However, if you haven't read any of the series before, I would not start with this one.

And Marsters does a very nice job on the narration. I think he does a good job of capturing Harry's voice without the narration being distracting from the story itself. Always a plus in an audiobook.

Excellent story and narration

I give this four stars, since it is not Jane Austin (Yes, red blooded American males read Jane Austin), but it is very good. I am also surprised and pleased with the narration. I liked Mr. Marsters as an actor, and I hope he continues with the Dresden books in the future.

What did you love best about Turn Coat?

When the Skinwalker gets his booty kicked!

What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

His voices are just epic!

Any additional comments?

Donald Morgan gets a bad rap but all in all he's a pretty cool dude

More of the same!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book, but only if you've read/listened to the previous books.<br/><br/>This is definitely more of the same - it has geered up since the original few books, meaning that it's lost personal, low power intrigue but has gained in exchange a certain epic-ness and depth.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Turn Coat?

James Masters voice, though out the whole thing! Unfortunatly details are impossible without spoilers!

Turn Coat

One of my favourite books of the series so far. Harry Dresden is in cracking form and Toot Toot proves to be a hero! Incidentally the narration of Toot Toot by James Marsden is really good! Really enjoyable book and completely recommended.

Turncoat

An excellent story, I have read all of these book but James Marsters voice is brilliant he reads from the heart. I only know him as Spike from Buffey, but I could sit and listen to him all day long.
