Elevated "into the front rank of urban fantasy heroes" (SF Site), professional wizard Harry Dresden is pledged to fight crime, banish evil, and outwit the masters of dark arts in the shadowy corners of Chicago. Harry, the only wizard in the Chicago phone book, is drafted to look into rumors of black magic in the Windy City. And if that wasn't enough, he must help the daughter of an old friend, whose boyfriend was the only one in a room where an old man was attacked. He insists he didn't do it. And what looks like a supernatural assault straight out of a horror film turns out to be-well, something quite close to that, as Harry discovers that malevolent entities that feed on fear are loose in Chicago.… (més)

This had some important information for the future of the series, but I didn't find it as good a read. ( )

This is the book where Molly's talent is introduced. I never seem to remember the rest of the horrendous story. It is a pivotal book in the series. ( )

Proven Guilty is the eighth book in The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. In this week's episode... Horrors from the big screen start coming to life at a local horror movie convention. Harry needs to investigate this one fast as it appears that black magic may be involved and a family friend has been caught up in the chaos.

I am impressed with how far Harry has come in eight books. Sure, there are horrors to fight and possible black magic to be stopped. The real focus of the book is Harry's relationships with some important women. Without saying too much, Harry and Charity are FINALLY forced to review their animosity and come to terms with each other's differing world views, even giving each other mutual (if grudging) respect and tentative friendship. Murphy continues to be the ultra bad ass. I really enjoyed getting to know more of Michael's family during this installment, primarily through Molly though others make an appearance too, though missed the big guy himself. Considering just how archaic Harry's views of women were at the start of the series, this is amazing progress.

As if that isn't enough, Harry is learning to adjust to his new role in the Council. Given the cause and resolution of the events at the convention, I think this is going to Give Harry some serious challenges in the future.

Proven Guilty is an engaging read. Given the main set up, there is plenty of horror and gory action to go around. It would make for a great Halloween read. Overall the book feels like a transition for Harry and the series. I'm not sure I see Harry as a teacher/mentor. This is an interesting set up for future books. ( )

Series gets better with each book. ( )

Slightly spoilery.

This one is kind of all over the place. And it gets a little creepy. Not due to the demons and what not, but because of the frequent sexual undertones between Dresden and a teenager. It's unfortunate.

As for the plot, it starts out more interesting than it becomes. A horror convention is drawing attacks from real life versions of movie monsters. But then it turns into a long slog into fairy land. However, some third act political stuff is pretty interesting and well done.

James Marsters does a great job narrating the story.

Overall, a good story that feels like a setup for future books. Just kinda creepy. ( )
