Proven Guilty

by Jim Butcher

This eighth novel of The Dresden Files offers the first peek of Harry Dresden's new role as a Warden, an agent of the White Council of Wizards. He still doesn't see eye to eye with his new bosses and is now confronted with a challenge to protect the daughter of one of his friends amidst an invasion of fear-feeding creatures from the spirit realm. I had mixed feelings about the book. One one hand, it seems like the characters and stories are weighted down with too much angst and back story. As I struggled to remember all of the references I was tempted to just abandon the book and go reread one of the earlier tales. On the other hand, you gotta love Mr. Butcher's wit and his ability to write action sequences. So, yeah, I finished the book and will undoubtedly pick up novel #9...

Enjoyable waiting room material
