Better than the last couple I read but will give it a break for a while. I chose to read this series as my husband loved them. I can see some of the reasons. The characters are light and clear cut, the stories are hero tales and if you love superheroes then this would be a totally suitable series. For me there is a lack of development of the characters and relationships currently (the best parallel I can think of is either discworld novels which I enjoy but cannot read too often as its like a sitcom you dip into and know the "style" of).

Book #8 (of 15) in the Dresden Files series has been read/narrated (James Marsters, the narrator, continues to demonstrate hisf prowess as the series continues). No one is more amazed than I that my interest in this genre has continued - unabated!! Mouse was introduced in Book #6 (Blood Rites) and I've fallen more and more under his spell as the series unfolds! Adorable doesn't begin to describe Mouse and my heart (literally!) skipped a beat as Proven Guilty's plot unfolded and Mouse faced various and sundry beyond dangerous situations - as do all of the characters in this series! On to Book #9 - White Night - just put it on hold at my beloved library!! ( )

Some extra squick factor here due to Butcher's penchant for carefully describing each female character's sexual attractiveness and the fact that this book prominently features a teenage female character, but if you can get beyond that, this was one of my favorite plots in the series. ( )

Harry and Thomas, finally resolve some of the unspoken issues between them. Harry gets a call from a friends daughter that eventually leads him into the Horror-con world. This con has a nice twist, your worst movie nightmare can hurt you. Harry joins forces with Murphy, Thomas, and believe it or not Charity. They travel to dangerous places to save one they love risking everything. The outcome of this book shifts Harry's future majorly. I can't wait to get to the next Book ! ( )

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.
