Accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council, Warden Morgan goes in search of Harry Dresden in a desperate attempt to clear his name and stop the deadly punishment from taking place in this latest thrilling addition to the Dresden Files series.

I am really enjoying the Dresden file series and pretty much jumped right into Turncoat after I finished Small Favor and it was sooo good!

It’s #11 and and early on in the series we find out how much Morgan hates Dresden so it was unusual for him to come to Dresden when he was in hot water. Seems Morgan is being accused of murder and in wizard world it’s pretty much a death sentence and nobody is looking into it since he was found over the body.

Harry can’t help but be a nice guy and help Morgan out especially when he doesn’t think he done it, but harboring him from the White Council is just as bad of a offense as murder so he better be right! It seems someone is trying to stir up trouble and it could be someone is the White Council.

I can not say it enough how much I love this series and LOVE Harry Dresden, he is just the ultimate good guy! He is complex and flawed but always does the best he can in hard situations.

If you haven’t tried this series and are Urban Fantasy fans then what are you doing! TRY IT! 🙂

A killer is on the loose, and only one girl has the power to find him. But in this genre-bending YA thriller, she must first manage to avoid becoming a target herself.
For Adele, the dead aren’t really dead. She can see them and even talk to them. But she’s spent years denying her gift. When she encounters her ex best friend Tori in a shallow grave in the woods and realizes that Tori is actually dead -- that gift turns into a curse. Without an alibi, Adele becomes the prime suspect in Tori’s murder. She must work with Tori’s ghost to find the real killer. But what if the killer finds Adele first?
Master mystery-write April Henry adds a chilling paranormal twist to this incredibly suspenseful young adult novel.

This book wasn’t very complex or twisty but it was entertaining enough.

In The Lonely Dead we have Adele who can see ghost and was always told she was mental and had problems because her  grandfather didn’t want to deal with it. She is supposed to be taking medication but she stopped and now she is seeing the ghost of her dead ex-friend.

She tries to help Tori figure out what happened to her but also is finding out she didn’t know Tori as well a she thought and it could be because they hadn’t been friends for a while, but she is finding out some things about herself that happened that night as well.

I though Adele was a decent character and felt bad for her that her grandfather treated her so badly because he didn’t want to acknowledge her gift. He would rather treat it as a disease and make her take pills. Some of the other characters were to bad either but not real complex just kind of average.

I didn’t find it very hard to figure out who the killer was but it could be because I read a lot of mysteries.

    I had wanted to read The Lonely Dead as well and now I’m not so sure. However, I’ve read the first 2-3 Dresden Files books and know that’s a series I want to read. Glad you are enjoying them so much!

    I really need to try the Butcher books. They all sound so good and the series seems to be holding strong. I think I’ll skip The Lonely Dead. I like the cover and the blurb but it sounds a little too meh to go out of my way for it.
