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 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. ( )

Holy cow, there's a lot that happened in this book. Molly, Mouse, never-never battle, etc etc etc. Great stuff!

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. ( )

I don't care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching--they are your family.
Children are a precious gift, but they belong to no one but themselves. They are only lent us a little while.
