~ Under the Covers
BRIEF CASES is another anthology by Jim Butcher that contains various short stories in the Harry Dresden world. If you’re familiar with the SIDE JOBS anthology, this is a bit of the same thing and considered a sequel to it. As this will release before PEACE TALKS, the stories all take place before then and kind of jump around in the series. So some of them will be before the series and some will take place between certain books. It would be nice to know those details beforehand so that you can full understand the timeline in which these stories occur.
You’ll also get various POVs, including Molly, which is a favorite of mine, so this compilation really does have a good mix for all you loyal Dresden followers. I think it’s a great way to refresh your memory on some details but probably won’t be the best first experience for readers who are looking to try this series. Since the timelines jump around so much, it can get confusing so it’s best to have read the other books in the series first before jumping into it. However, if you’re just wanting to get a taste of Butcher’s writing, I feel like this also captures his voice well.
A must-read for Harry Dresden fans, BRIEF CASES is not something you want to miss!

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
