Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments @ini: starting Turn Coat.

Harry became a White Council member ie a Wizard, before the series started. He became a Warden in book 7, Dead Beat.

The weird-ass island vibes were introduced in book 10, but Turn Coat is the first appearance of Demonreach as an entity I think.

I'll join for the post-Changes books. I'm not sure I read any of them in detail.


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments thanks Sha!

it's a reread for me. stopped at 10 last year thinking of resuming near the release of Peace Talks but since there is no news about the PT, thought of completing my rereads. :D

reread for you too?

It was mentioned towards the end of 10th book I guess...!

Thanks Sha for giving a recap :-D

I will start this tonight..

My favorite book, by far, is Changes... I've read it 3-4x... I owned the book pre-Kindle...


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments I love 7-15 except ghost story.

My favorite thing about Ghost Story was the Uriel scene, which had more to do with Changes, really...

Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments Chapter 22

"Mission accomplished, my Lord of Pizza."

"Shall I slay him for you my Lord."

"I don't know if things have escalated to that level just yet."



Toot toot.😍


message 12: by Em Lost In Books (new)

Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments Even on my first read I had simply stopped looking for the traitor in White Council. I was never right and things got more and more muddled up with every book.

One thing am glad is, quality of the books remained top class and they were entertaining through and through.

The description reminds me of one of the Transformers movies where Optimus Prime and the leader of the Decepticons were fighting and kept shifting between humanoid form, and fighter jets and vehicles, etc etc...

Yeah. :) I remember most of what happens in books 03-12, but the books after that are a little hazy...especially Ghost Story.
