Jim Butcher's Breakthrough #1 New York Times bestseller

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, he wants his name cleared, and he needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. 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 could cost Harry his head...


Turn Coat is book eleven in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher.

Hot Dame what a start. Warden Morgan is in trouble; suspected of treason against the Wizarding Council and he turns to Harry for help. 

If you’ve been reading this series you know Harry and Morgan don’t get along and also that Morgan is dedicated to the White Council, his job as a Warden, and a stickler for the rules. Harry would love to turn him in, but he knows that Morgan would never break the Laws of Magic.

Things just got more harry… He’s got two days to find the traitor in the White Council. After that Morgan and anyone that helped him goes down for the crime. Things get complicated fast. Friends and family get hurt and no one will be the same after it’s all done. 

I enjoyed seeing Waldo Butters the medical examiner again. I adore and love Harry’s dog Mouse. Then we have Molly, Murphy, and Thomas. Each character grows on you and to see something happen to them that will change things; is good and also sad. Things with Thomas after this installment won’t be the same and we don’t know where Harry and him stand. I cried a little and was proud that Harry still says he’s his brother no mater what.

Turn Coat has no shortage of suspense, surprises, lose, and more. The Dresden Files is an extraordinary Urban Fantasy series. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Harry and the gang. 

Rated: 5 Stars

  1. Great review. Every time I read a review of any of the books, I want to go back and register. I swear if we EVER get PEACE TALKS, we’ll all need to do a massive relisten. It is truly such an amazing series. Thanks!!

    • ^_^ He’ll get it out. I’m still a few books behind, but getting caught up. Thank’s for visiting!

  2. I LOVE this series SO much. I read them all from the library on audio (last year?), then I bought every single one. I can’t wait for a new one and I’m not alone. I hear Peace Talks is in beta edits now. It’s one of my favorites.

    • That’s wonderful you love this series. I’m glad I finally picked it up. Ya, I’m borrow the books from the library too, but I’m going to be getting them in audio. I loved the one audio book I listened too. So I’ve got plans to buy as well. That’s the one of the things I love about my library I try out a new author and/or series and if I fall in love I’ll buy them while I read it again, but I know I will with Dresden. Thank’s Anne for visiting! Happy Reading.

    • ^_^ I know the feeling. His work is fabulous, but I’m still behind. Oh well, I’m slowly getting their. Trying to read one book a month in the series and it’s been working. Thank’s Sherry for visiting! Have a great day.

  4. This is one of the few series I will reread. I love Waldo also. Wish we could see Mouse on a cover though.

    • I’m slowly but surely catching up. I’m very much enjoying this series and the next time I read them I’m going to go with audio. I hear the series is good that way and I tried one book in audio and loved. Thank’s Tammy for visiting and so glad you like this series!

  5. I keep seeing everyone rave about this series. I’m going to have to dive to see what the buzz is all about! Great review!

    • This series has been raved about and recommended to me so many times. When I started blogging back in 2014 it’s one lots of bloggers recommend and still do. I finally made a point in 2018 to pick up the series and have been slowly plugging away at the books. Book 1 was great and I was hooked. I did try one book in audio and recommend the audio if you prefer that formate, but my main thing has been reading the books. I know that I’ll reread this series, but the next time I’m doing audio. I hope you give it a chance and enjoy. Thank’s Angela for visiting ^_^!

  6. I’m so late I need to read book 2

    • LOL No worries. So many have recommended this series to me and I started it last year in 2018. I deiced to try and read a book a month in 2019, so I get caught up. I’ve been doing good, but still not their yet. I like the pace and progress I’ve made. I hope you enjoy book 2. I know I did and the audios are nice too, if you prefer to listen.
