Description

The White Council of Wizards has drafted Harry Dresden as a Warden and assigned him to look into rumors of black magic in Chicago. Malevolent entities that feed on fear are loose in the Windy City, but it's all in a day's work for a wizard, his faithful dog, and a talking skull named Bob.

Butcher does it again. Great book. Marsters brings Dresden too life in a real dramatic and authentic way.

Great character development of Dresden

I really like the story, perhaps more specifically than the previous. while Dresden character has been slowely maturing I really felt like this was the book you can sort of pause at and realize how far he's come as a character from the place where he started at. he's becoming rougher and wiser and his role is maturing along with him. There is a very realistic, vivid feel to how he's changing. it's exactly how youth mature to adulthood, things which in youth are sharp and certain become worn away with time and experience. while simultaneously you realize what things In life are important, what things must be held onto and kept from being worn through. things like integrity can be traded for ego as an adult where a child is unwilling to act clearly.
anyways. while the book still holds its 'tropes' it's what makes it the 'dresden' series of know and love and I'm excited to continue following dresdens adventures, curious to see how much longer he can you the line and see how he falls, and if he falls how he redeems himself.

My favourite book in the series

Incredible story and impeccably narrated. Marsters ability to create a voice for each character is impressive and spot on. Each voice evokes a mental image of the character associated. The story is one that helps solidify the character of Dresden in the series and is a turning point in the plot. Love it.

Started slow but then... wow!

The book starts kind of slow for almost half of it... but the second half is really exciting!

Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher

I loved this book so much. It really fleshed out the character of Charity Carpenter and explained the back story of her disdain for Harry Dresden. Holly Carpenter becomes a more central character as well. Harry's "family" is expanding and it makes him feel even more conflicted & guilty. Poor Harry is all banged up again by those supernatural beings who are striving for world domination (starting with Chicago).

Harry the Warden finds himself with a dilemma and he deals with it in his own quirky way. Love it!!!

Badassery

Big mysterious plots, fairies, magic induced explosions, and its narrated by James Marsters. Enough said.

Plan of attack

The horror convention setting was great fun, and I enjoyed watching Harry adjust to his new role as Warden because doing the right thing, and enforcing the laws of magic aren't always synonymous, and a bit of tough love ensues. Charity opened up some as a character which brought on a few interesting new developments, although whether Molly Carpenter will add any value to this universe is still up in the air. I see potential, but another male Urban Fantasy author whom I'm a fan of attempted something similar, and the results were disappointing. It'll all come down to Butcher's plan of attack. Future story line speculation aside, PROVEN GUILTY did this series proud.

Great listening experience

First, let me say that I was turned on to the hard copy books initially and loved the series from the start. Then I started travelling more for work and was nervous about having them in audio format starting with this book, #8. No need to worry, it was even better than I could have hoped for. James Marsters does a GREAT job of bringing the story and people to life. His intonations, laughs and accents really help to make this an exciting listen. I have actually found myself driving around the block of my customers locations a few times just to get to the end of a chapter for a stopping point. Just like a book you can't put down. I strongly suggest you start with the books in order, now that they are available, to help understand the story development fully. It is good to watch Harry Dresden grow from the beginning and know where the other players come in at and get the background foundation. I am now up to book #11 and they just keep getting better. I rate these books as 5 stars due to the story line and the excellent narration. Well done!

Not the book to start the series with, but...

Dresden emerges as a great man in this (what I think is the best so far), the eight book of the series. Before Harry has chosen to do what was needed against the greatest odds, to protect the innocent and right the wrong. In this book, he puts his soul as well as his life on the line to bring about reconciliation, and to some extent redemption for those around him deserving or just plain needing it.

In this book Jim Butcher gives us deeper glimpses of the greater mystery and moves us to a better view of the higher meaning of Harry's struggles. He does so honestly, and convincingly.

This is not the Dresden story to jump into the series with (personally I recommend starting at the beginning). There are two many important character developments that take place in earlier books needed to grasp the scope of this book. If you are following the series though, you will find this story poignant and moving. A transition of young and fragmented Harry to Harry the man.

Hell's Bell's Harry!

Fabulous book with an intriguing cast of characters and a convoluted unpredictable story that kept me guessing. Molly Carpenter is the daughter of Harry's good friend and she has gotten herself in a bad situation that only magic can solve. Horror movie monsters are slaughtering the innocent and black magic is staining Chicago. Something must be done and Harry is the man for the job. Jim Marster's narration is perfect. I will never read a Dresden book because Marster's voice will always be Harry to me.

Excellent Venture into the World of Dresden

What made the experience of listening to Proven Guilty the most enjoyable?

The narrator did an excellent job and was very enjoyable.

Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

Harry

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nope, I wanted to space it out and make it last longer.

Any additional comments?

The book moves the series along and starts more plot threads for the future...a very enjoyable read if you are into this series.

Not recommended if you have not had previous experience with this series...start with Storm Front and work your way towards this great adventure.

Harry comes full circle with his youth

The publisher's summary leaves much to be desired. This particular installment of The Dresden Files should not be missed.

Harry gets a call from the oldest daughter of one his closest friends, Michael Carpenter. Molly is in more trouble than she knows, and Harry "An Innocent Bystander" at SplatterCon!!! gets in it up to his neck.
Jim Butcher as always is a master at developing these wonderful characters. You get more information about the Carpenters, and awesome Charity development. You kinda forgive her for treating Harry like trash until now.

In the end Harry comes face to face with some of the demons of his past, resurrected at the sight of watching an untrained wizard sentenced to a miserable end by the White Council. He'll have to pull a rabbit out of his hat to prevent the same fate befalling someone he's driven to protect they way he himself was protected at the same age.

As always, awesome writing by Butcher, and awesome performance by Marsters.

Kudos to all involved!

I've not read any of the Dresden Files books previously and was worried about starting at book 8 (the first 7 not available in audio). I needn't have worried. Butcher does a great job with catching up new readers without making it sound like exposition. The characters are marvelous and brought stunningly to life by James Marsters. I'll certainly be getting all the other Dresden Files available!

Good but cuts off

Any additional comments?

Good reading of an amazing book as usual but it cuts off about a page or two before the story ends. Very frustrating.

A little formulaic

The books so far have been good. The writing is good and the story is good. I just don't really see much development in the main character as a person or a hero. Same attack over and over again. No personality development.

Started to Drag A Little at The End But....

Still as great an epic story as always. I'm a loyal reader of the series. This one introduced some interesting new characters and reconnected relationships I was longing to see back together. Towards the end it seemed there could have been earlier stopping points, but it revealed some seeds for the future storyline.
