    Great mental illustrations!

    This is the first and only book I have ever read by Jim Butcher to date and I loved it. The story was funny, dark yet positive, and overall very intelligently put together. One of the most captivating things about this book/author is that scenes, people, and objects are laid it in such smart detail that it felt as if I was watching a movie of the book in HD with special effects and all. I could literally visualize ever magical event with no difficulty as I read. Excellent story to match too! I really think this book should be made into movies for an adult "Harry Potter" like series; it would be much better. Bucher made a fan out of me.

    Paperback/Urban Fantasy: After some slow books in this series, the past two have been great. Like usual, the plot delves into several areas of Harry's world. I really liked the mystery, but I wasn't too crazy about the Fairy Politics. It was a little long, but I really enjoyed it.

    Proven Guilty, the Dresden Files, Book 8

    Harry Dresden, Warden of the White Council of Wizards, is sent in search of black magic practitioners, and finds himself not only fighting horror movie monsters, but Charity too! He is aided by the Lady of Summer and her Knight, Murphy, and of course Bob, as he discovers that something or someone is using them. Everyone is being played, but to what end? Harry continues to fight in the ongoing war against the vampires of the Red Court, save the life of Molly, Michael's oldest from Winter and the White Council, and resist the temptations of Lasciel. Can he do all that when his power is all tapped out?

    Remember to go in order

    Proven Guilty was an excellent addition to the Dresden Files. As a stand alone book, though, it would seem that Butcher is pulling away from that particular aspect of the series. This I feel, is all for the good. Harry begins to open up more as a character as the series progresses, and in Proven Guilty you start to see his overall character downshift into presumably what Butcher envisions him to eventually be. The book is fluff, and extremely difficult to discuss with anyone not actively reading the series. It would also seem that Butcher's copy-writers are slacking off a bit. My grammer and grasp of punctuation is by no means proffessional, but on the other hand, i'm not being published. All in all a good book. I have read it multiple times since i purchased it, and will likely read it a few more as the series progresses.
