Someone once said to me that the Dresden Files get better and better with every book. They were right. Proven Guilty was all about his most emotional memories coming back and history repeating itself - a young wizard, just like he once was, without proper guidance makes all hell break loose and Harry is there for the rescue.

I was slightly bored by the monsters in the theater parts - it would have been so much more fun if those horrow movie monsters could only be killed exactly like they did in the movies. But, thank God, those parts resolved themselves pretty quickly, leaving the second half of the book for my sheer enjoyment. ( )

Dresden is hunting down movie horror monsters, and the one behind bringing them to Chicago. This was a reread for me, so there is another review somewhere out there by me. Love, love, love James Marsters' narration. ( )

Every one of these Dresden books is the same. They all blur together. I have no way to tell them apart. I've read about 6 of these books, and they really are pretty good. But, they are all in the average category. None of them stand out as really that awesome.

After reading this particular book, I was like, goddamnit! I thought for sure they were gonna throw Dresden in jail for good this time. But noooooo. Fucking bullshit. Why can't someone kill this guy already? I mean, what's the fucking problem? Just shoot the cocksucker. ( )

Quotations
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.
