Harry Dresden Question

Harry Dresden
Just re-listened to "Changes" this week.

I love that book - my favourite of the series (so far) ... but the last chapter made me realise .....

Does Ebenezar McCoy not know that Thomas is also his grandson? He talks about "that Raith bastard" and earlier he had told Harry off for helping Thomas.

Has he not worked it out?

Or is he just floating down that Egyptian river?

Put behind a cut for those who haven't read that far ... but it's a great book.

Same mum - different Dads do it doesn't apply :)

No I realised as I read your answer I had a typo - I know that Thomas is Raith's son .... just wondered if Ebenezer had realised he was Maggie's son, as well.

Thomas isn't Ebenezar's son. That why Thomas is a vampire. His father is Lord Raith of the White Court. Ebenezar McCoy is Harry's grandfather. McCoy is Harry's mother Margaret LaFey's father.

Harry and Thomas seem to be keeping it quiet that they are brothers. I think some of the Raiths know they are half brothers, but the council is kept in the dark as far as I know.

As others have said, the truth will come out when Butcher decides its time for the big reveal.

Yes, Lara knows, doesn't she ... but I think that's all.

*g* - I wonder how that "explosion" will come out!

Did you mean Ebenezar's grandson? I don't know if he knows or not whether Maggie had a son when she was with the Raith court. But I think he's going to find out at some point in the future (I've just had a little read through some threads on the Jim Butcher forum to see if there was a clear answer on this one, and now I want more Dresden!!). The next book's coming along nicely though, apparently.

I suppose, as you hint, this is one of the great things about this series of books. There are questions that are answered each book ... but some we are left waiting for!

I will admit I didn't like Ghost Story as much as I had hoped to (maybe that was the problem). I loved the explnation for Harry's murder ... but think one or two characters were under-used.

I also think that Mollie heading "for the dark side" is something that is going to be a future story line. larabeckinsale has written som short Harry-Karrin fics, but she sais that on many of the fan sites it's Harry-Molly that is shipped.

Oh, yes the Molly/Harry ship, I wish I could attack that one and sink it. I don't know about other places really, but the Official Butcher's site is full of people loving that possibility. As time has passed though and other people have started to catch up on this book, I've seen some more comments against it. But it's still pretty strong on account of Murphy not being a candidate because she would not live as long as Dresden and her being too independent, and Molly being so in love with Dresden already and her being a wizard. Which is all c**p to me *shrugs*

I don't think Eb really know about Thomas, which is weird considering that he did know about Maggie Sr. being with Raith. I think there's a chance that he does know but he thinks that because Thomas is a vampire, he will end up being evil, so Eb considers him scum.

Yes, but with Karrin poss having a sword at some point in the future! Anyway, I could see them together, Harry losing her and then he gets to be the brooding wizard in his older age! (Beats Molly, anyway!)

Yes, it was Ebenezer's comment that his Maggie had just got together with "that Raith" ... suprised he hasn't realised why Harry continues to support and see, Thomas. It will come out - can't wait!
