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.

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.

Proven Guilty is book eight in The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.

It never rains, but it pours. This one was full of black magic, faeries, ghost and more. Harry is adjusting to his new role as Warden, doing the right thing and enforcing the laws of magic don’t always go together and a bit of tough love proceeds. So much happens and the surprises keep coming.

Harry gets help from an unlikely source, Charity. Also Thomas and Murphy come along on this adventure. The war is still going on, but things aren’t going well between the Red Court and White Council. Merlin also wants to remove Harry permanently from the Council. And, Harry is collecting a interesting set of allies to help him now and in the future.

Proven Guilty is full of action, mystery, magic, compassion and intrigue. Overall, I’m enjoying The Dresden Files. The mystery, action, and seeing Harry grow and deal with life’s changes is wonderful. Their is something new to experience in each new installment.

Rated: 4 Stars

In my opinion, this is where the series really starts getting interesting. ( )

Continuing my slow but steady progress on the Dresden Files books, which are always a good time and always marvelously narrated by James Marsters (except for the one temporarily released with another narrator until the fan outcry). This one introduces Molly Carpenter, Dresden’s apprentice, as a major character. I felt like Butcher engaged in a bit of unnecessary leering in Molly’s first character descriptions, but you could argue that they set up a plot development at the end of the book that defines clear boundaries and a line that Dresden will not cross with his new apprentice. That said, I wonder if he’d make the same creative choice today. ( )

I enjoyed this book the first time I read it and I think that it was even better during this re-read. This is the eighth book in the Harry Dresden series which really should be read in order since each book builds on events from previous installments. It is a great series to revisit anytime I want to read something that I know I am going to enjoy.

Once again, Harry finds himself in the middle of a mess. He receives a call from Molly Carpenter, the daughter of his good friend, looking for help and he just can't say no. Someone in town is doing black magic and there are also some grisly murders at a local horror festival that he needs to contend with. All while trying to keep the White Council happy. Things get very complicated very quickly and Harry feels like it is his responsibility to set things right. There were some pretty big developments that were revealed in this installment. I found this story to be really exciting with plenty of action. I was hooked by the mystery and couldn't wait to see if Harry would be able to make everything work while protecting those in his care.

James Marsters continues to do a phenomenal job with this series. It really is amazing how completely he is able to bring Harry and the other characters to life. I thought that he added a lot of emotion and excitement into the reading and I found it easy to listen to this book for hours at a time. I do feel that his performance added to my enjoyment of the story.

I would recommend this series to others. Harry's world is an interesting one to visit and I always feel completely entertained when I dive into any of the novels in the series. I cannot wait to continue with my re-read of the series. ( )

Pretty damn good. The myth arc stuff is getting really interesting, good new characters are being introduced, and the characterization is on point. Definately one of the better dress den files books. ( )
