Do you read the Dresden File novels by Jim Butcher? I blogged last year when he was here to sign Small Favor. I made sure I got up to Mysterious Galaxy again this year when he and his wife Shannon Butcher came for talking and signing.
I read Turn Coat over the weekend. You can tell Butcher is in the middle of the arc of his overall storyline. The action is non-stop in this book. Harry Dresden keeps biting off more than he can chew and still manages to swallow and digest it. This time he is protecting his enemy, Warden Morgan, from the White Council of Wizards. Harry is sure Morgan was framed. But proving that and unmasking a trator isn't going to be easy.
Jim Butcher has excited me once again with this book. I started off slow, then couldn't put it down (even though I had to so I could sleep and go to work). My biggest problem was it finished too soon (and not soon enough if you understand what I mean - I kept wanting to know what was next?) and the next book isn't going to be out until next year. He gave us a teaser about the next Dresden book - "(---) was on my doorstep with a small girl. 'This is our daughter.' she said."
