Proven Guilty: A Novel of the Dresden Files (The Dresden Files #08) by Jim Butcher
Proven Guilty: A Novel of the Dresden Files (The Dresden Files #08)

A friend's family doesn't know it, but they need Harry's help. Harry was surprised, too, at the duties required of a White Council Warden. It all came out OK at the end ... or did it? I love a page turner, and this is most definitely one! Can't wait to start reading the next story in this series.

One of the most depressing, sad and disjointed books I've ever attempted. I finally gave up and picked pages randomly, moving toward the back of the book to get a feel of the ending. Sorry I wasted so much time.

Another page turner ending, just couldn't put it down. I love Jim Butcher's style of writing, it fits his characters so well and the cliff hangers at every other chapter keep me reading well after I should be sleeping. Great story line.

Blood Rites: Dresden Files #06 by Jim Butcher
Blood Rites: Dresden Files #06

I'm so glad to be back in Dresden's wizardly world. I love the cliffhangers at the end of almost every chapter, keeps me reading "just one more chapter" before going to sleep. Toward the end of the book when all the solutions were coming together, I couldn't put the book down ... Jim Butcher continues to develop his star characters and each book of the series reveals just a little bit more.

Dragon Harper (Dragonriders of Pern) by Anne Mccaffrey
Dragon Harper (Dragonriders of Pern)

MartyV, September 17, 2014

This 3rd book by mother and son McCaffrey, continues their tradition of excellence. This fast moving story line continues to develop and define life on the world of Pern. Life, death, love, distrust and honor; all play a part in telling the story about dealing with a deadly plague - I couldn't put it down.
