Dark mood and surprising twists

This book, for some reason, was not captivating for me as the others were. I took me about 20 days to finish it, which was never case before. The entire mood and the atmosphere of the book was darker than usual, and so many action in the plot got me thinking "Again, really?"
My favorite character is getting to be Mouse...
But there are some very surprising twists in the story that really make it worthwhile. Won't say what, but I surely didn't see it coming.

Different each book each time fab!!

Funny, dry humour and wonderful narration. Normally with book series, a similar plot is rolled out but each book is fresh, funny and slowly winding up the tension for the next instalment, without feeling cheated. Love it

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!
