FLF a bestseller, plus the skinny on Changes!

First Lord’s Fury is #7 on the New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list! Congratulations, Jim!
If you haven’t bought your copy yet, you can order one through the Jim-Butcher.com Store.
Jim is currently working on Changes, book 12 in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dresden Files series, which promises to be a game changer:

Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden’s lover-until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.
Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry. To prevail this time, he may have no choice but to embrace the raging fury of his own untapped dark power. Because Harry’s not fighting to save the world…
He’s fighting to save his child.

Changes is due out April 6th, 2010. You can preorder it in hardback and audio formats (read by James Marsters) at the Jim-Butcher.com store.

  1. Could Molly be related to Harry? Didn’t Molly say that she was named after an Aunt Margaret, and Harry’s mother was Margaret. Could Charity Carpenter (who has her own dark and rebellious past) be the kid sister of Harry’s mother?

  2. I had the same thought. Charity’s parents came down hard on her when she showed magical talent. If they had lost 1 daughter to it already, they would be extra tough on the next one. In what story did Molly tell Harry that?
    I still think that if Harry’s daughter comes to the Chicago area, the Carpenter’s will be foster parents to her. She can have the family Harry always envied.

  3. OMG i am so ready for the previews to start nest week. I have re-read both series trying to keep my sanity. never mind you lucky souls who owe your souls to someone. hehe

  4. Holy Toledo!! I totally forgot about Molly saying that! (I too forgot what book that was in) Now wouldn’t that be something! And to think that both girls (if Harry’s daugther is)named after Harry’s mother..is something in itself.
    Another interesting twist that could very fun and very interesting to see how it would play out!
    Boy…I just can’t wait to get my hands on this book! But of course we might not know this yet for a couple books???

  5. Another thought – about Charity’s mother: she was helping Charity with the kids, in one book, and providing a safe haven (because the Carpenter home was too dangerous) in another book.
    Could she be Harry’s grandmother?
    Does Harry have an aunt (Charity), nieces and nephews (Charity and Michael’s kids) and a grandmother (Charity’s mom)?
    If true, I believe Jim (Butcher) will have Harry keep the facts to himself to protect his family.
    And kheas, never make a deal with a sidhe, no matter what!!!!

  6. Molly and the other children would be his cousins. At least his daughter could enjoy a family.

  7. You are right. Molly and her siblings would be Harry’s cousins. I woke up realizing my blunder and was about to set the record straight, but Bev already caught it…
    I read the first chapter and can’t wait for more.
    For a guy who was an orphan, Harry Dresden seems to be accumulating a lot of family, huh?

  8. Elise
    Good catch on Charity’s Mom. Hadn’t thought of that possibility. What would Harry and Thomas do if they found out they had a gradma? What’s old granny going to think that 2 grandchildren are wizards and one a vampire?
    I think Harry is doing to find out that other people already knew about his daughter and never told him. Ebenezer is in touch with the Order of St. Giles

  9. Oh My Goodness!!!!
    Just read chapter 2 and I am angrier at Susan than when I first learned that she had hidden her pregnancy, and susequent baby, from Harry.
    The baby’s name is Maggie: Margaret Angelica, after Harry’s mother!!!!
    Oh my – where had she sent the baby to be “safe”?

  10. Michael would tell him that is one of the consequences of sex outside marriage. The possibility of not knowing if or where your children are. Hard choice, but I agree with Susan. She couldn’t share in the child’s life either. I’d guess that before the book is over, Harry has to make the same decision for her safety and maybe get some insight into Susan’s decision.

  11. just read the molly/harry family possibilty & i no its stupid but i didnt realise they would also thomas’ family till just now wen i was readn the latest ccomments. i totally agree that theyre related. & BTW mr. butcher for future reference id be more than willing to accept an advance copy of any of your books. lol. although there is a Q id like answered: coz theres only less than 2 weeks left b4 the book is released does that mean there arent going 2 be any more excerpts?!!

  12. was just talking about the series with my sister & i think the dresden series will finish after about five more books max after changes because it seems like everything the entire series has been reachung for is going to happen within the next couple of books. everything in the series that hasnt been finished yet looks like it will be right? i mean the earlier bookss tie in with the black council which is all but a known state secret in the deresdenverse & after the red court been dealt with in this book presumably harrys going 2 deal with the black council right? & harrys birth rhing that lash was goin on about in white night that stuff will hopefully be revealed in changes so how much more stuff is there?! feel free to comment on this. id really like to no ur opinion on this or if you think its all crap.

  13. Oh & i 4got about the whole arctiss tor thing & mabs anger @ harry. thatll take @ least 1 book to sort throught. so i really being optimistic wen i said 5 more books. i actually meant like 3.

  14. I think Murphy gets a sword – she got and invitation and the dept. will eventually fire her. And we already know that a sword will remove a demon – like the current holder of the third sword. So Thomas gets the second and is free from the white court. There is also the dark power of the island-sanctuary. And soul fire. + whatever gifts the coin left. it should be surprisingly even. But the kid dies, or is permanently removed from Harry’s life because by the time he get to her, he is worse than his uncle.

  15. Let’s not forget that Mab still has 1 request of Harry. Also Harry still has to solve the mysterious deaths of his Father and Mother (eluded to in Storm Front when Harry exchanges one of his names for info from a demon). Also Titania still wants to get back at Harry for killing Aurora. Things are also still unresolved between Captain Luccio and Harry. And, should Harry ever decide to take a trip to the grey area (in between the laws of magic) like his mother. He has a invite from Laura Wraith to cozy up with her. Kremlin’s book (Dead Beat) is also in the hands of the Black Court Vamp check who I am sure that still has a bone to pick with Harry. I am sure that another twist will turn up in CHANGES so let’s not expect Harry to be going any where anytime soon.

  16. While the Aunt Margaret thing for Molly is an interesting thought it isn’t really likley to be Harry’s mom. She was a full blown wizard of considerable power to have been traveling in the circles she did. It isn’t likley that she was Harry’s father’s age or young enough to have had a younger siser Charity’s age.
    Speaking of which Thomas is Harry’s older brother, right? Any idea how old he is? It isn’t like he’s aging normally.
    The Swords do not remove demons. The Russian knight (Sasha?) gave up the coin Before he recieved the sword. It was after seeing his Denarian handler/girlfriend bad mouthing him or something like that.
