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.… (mais)

My favorite of the series, so far. In this story, Harry encounters the love and acceptance he craves when his friends rally to aid him. They also reach out to bridge the emotional gaps undermining his strength.

We’re also treated to further developments in the White Council traitor storyline. Harry takes on an apprentice. Harry’s relationships with Murphy and Thomas are deepening into somethings interesting.

This story leaves me wanting to immediately pick up the next so I can find out what happens next. ( )

Another very solid entry.

Basically, there's black magic afoot. Fear monsters from the Nevernever are attacking a horror movie convention and it's up to Dresden to find out why. Add to that complications with Michael's now almost adult daughter Molly. The interactions between Molly and Dresden are weird and uncomfortable at times, but on the other hand they seem for the most part disturbingly realistic.

I like a lot of the characterization here. We get more on the Carpenters, in particular Molly and Charity. I really love that entire family. Charity shines in this book in particular. We learn a bit more about why she dislikes Dresden so much and how much of a badass she is when the need is right. Molly is in and out of the spotlight quite a bit, but it's obvious she'll be central to future books.

We also get a bit of a hint about how other wizards bend the rules. It's heavily implied that the Gatekeeper has a warning from the future that he passed on to Dresden. It's not time travel strictly speaking... but still.

Then, there's the ending. While there is still a monster-of-the-book thing going on, we're really seeing more of the larger implication of the Dresdenverse. There are a few questions raised here (who is the person behind the person behind the curtain) which we don't even get an answer to... Yet. It's annoying in the first book or two of a series, but this many along, it's something that can really make a series.

Amusing aside: Thus far there are baddies with the same name as my wife and my daughter in this series. It's a bit jarring each time I come across them.

Fun quote of the day: "It is far easier to avoid inappropriate amorous desires if one runs screaming from the room every time a pretty girl comes in."

Because of war-related attrition, Harry Dresden is now a Warden of the White Council, but still facing stiff political opposition there. Book #8 opens with Harry forced to witness a retribution against a warlock for violating a primary law. This is followed by Molly Carpenter calling Harry instead of her parents to pick her up from the police. While Harry and her father Michael are very close, her mother Chastity blames Harry from all kinds of transgressions. Molly and her mother are fighting and she has left home, and is working on Splattercon!!, a horror movie convention. Real horrors are happening there, taking the form of movie characters and feeding off real fear. Of course, Harry has to protect the innocent, calling in favors as they invade Nevernever land to rescue Molly. Harry is struggling to solve the mystery, which seems just out of his reach, when finally all of the pieces fall together and Harry makes a desperate gamble to save his friend's family. The love in the Carpenter family, especially among the siblings was great, as was Mouse, who saves Harry on several occasions. ( )

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
