This week we’ll be taking a look at the book Changes by bestselling author Jim Butcher, who is one of our favorite authors here at M.P. His fast-paced, witty and charming first person narrative accounts of Harry Dresden’s actions as Wizard, Private Eye, Warden (Magic Police Officer, Judge, Jury, and Soldier all rolled into one) keep readers coming back for more.
