I really enjoyed this. While it felt like Dresden files, it did not feel like a cheap rip off of Harry himself. I especially your use of the magic system such as potions.

I was almost totally sold with the alterations you made to Butcher's strain of magic in this, except for a couple of times where "you'd think Harry would have mentioned some of these things" before I remembered that this is both a spin off and a different variety of magic. For instance, George using Tibetan as his casting language when he presumably is fluent or conversant in it, though I came to a conclusion that perhaps it's tied up in the recent theocracy business. The left-handed thing is also kind of jarring when it comes up, but it adds rather than subtracts.
Speaking of the Tibet choice, your background on the invasion of Tibet was interesting... personally I'm anti-feudalism, but there are certain things wrong about the effects of the invasion - like the cultural imperialism involved. But I won't get too into the politics. George's background in particular was nice and coherent, though there's a big loose end in plot there. The Circle was clever, and I rather liked the climactic dream sequence. The second-last dream in particular was just spot-on.
Good to see an Asian Dresden Files tale not involving the Jade Court business, by the way.
I also wonder (this is all mostly to myself) how much of an alt-timeline this is, what with the broadsword in Ch21 - at least the events of Dead Beat (re: Luccio's magic) had to have been different, assuming this is set before Changes, with corresponding butterflies.
Combined with the family plot line, I also wonder if the rune plot line is a lead-in for a potential sequel... or just a case of not all plots being resolved like in real life.

This was awesome. No other words for it. I am so glad you took the time to write and post it here, because it truly does read like a book in the Dresden series. It can be tough to make a hero just as intriguing as Dresden, but you pulled it off. George definitely has some interesting qualities to him, and I get the feeling that we only discovered a few of them. Is there a another sequel in the works? :) And Jeeves, well. That little guy is just so endearing. Who wouldn't want a Jeeves?
Fantastic story. Again, thanks so much for sharing it. Totally enjoyed it.

This is pretty brilliant stuff. The best DF fox on the site, and probably one of the better stories I've read here overall. I'd be interested to read any of your other work!

This is an amazing piece of work man. The amount of detail in it.. You could certainly have gone pro. Loved how you kept to the spirit of the Dresden Files while not even basing the story in Chicago or writing about Dresden himself as a protagonist. Any possibility of a sequel?

Holy Crap. This fic is Amazing. I would not be surprised if you were actually Jim Butcher. Everything is just so... authentic. This definitely needs more publicity, you should post this on some forums. Oh and a sequel would be awesome and much appreciated. Hope to see more of your work soon!

I can see you're a pro writer man, because this was truly great. Too bad Dresden Files community here isn't bigger and this story has so few reviews. I can only hope that that won't demotivate you too much and you'll write a sequel.

I am really enjoying your story. Even with original characters and a setting as far away from Chicago but still on the continental USA, you have managed to capture the flavor and spirit of the Dresden Files setting. I am only five chapters in and I wish this was canon. I also had a professor who did some of his doctorate work near and in Tibet... he would probably tell me that any other Tibetan (not needing to infiltrate the place) accused of being "Red Chinese" would have been really ticked. Or not. I admit to not knowing Tibetan culture that well... though some Tibetan Buddhist sects can be pretty nasty from what I've heard.

I actually read the pdf version and came to look for it over here because, basically... moar plz? I've loved Dorje from his very first line, and the way you integrated Eastern and Western magic was fantastic.
There was just one thing that kind of stuck out an irked me: Marcone didn't offer Dorje obscene amounts of money. He offered him a job, but he didn't go into how much better the kid's life would be for taking it. I feel like he's underselling himself, if he doesn't write down a number and slide it across the table and sit back and look smug.
And like someone else on TVTropes, the line about taking out ALL the vampires being an impossible task pretty much made me choke. I hope there's a sequel in the works, Changes made it a whole new world out there!

Great, you put it on ! More readers ahoy!
| KiBird chapter 22 . 8/22/2011
Love it. I see why people are saying he's just like Dresden, but is that really a bad thing? At the very least, I think his magic makes him unique enough to not matter.
Really hope to see more from you. Don't let the low reviews get you down. This is better than a LOT of stuff I've read on this site.

"Look, all it is, is there's a couple of selkies trapped here in Miami, and I was hoping that you could escort them back to Edinburgh. After that, they can do the rest."
"Selkies?" Dresden asked. "What's selkies doing in Miami?"
This still has to be one of the best endings that I've read on this site. Just saying :-)

This is fantastic stuff. I love the amount of detail you put into this.
Can't wait for more of anything you write.
