Brief Cases (The Dresden Files #15.1) Reviews
Okay, a review... ah, screw it.
I gave this compilation 5-stars even though I've heard a number of them before and some were better than others. Do you know why? Because I DID NOT want this audiobook to end. I LOOOOOOOVE the narrator of this series, the super, super talented James Marsters, and it almost made me cry when Brief Cases was over. I MISSED this series. Write faster, Jim Butcher. WRITE FASTER.

I had a great time with this book. I knew that this was going to be a book that I would need to read as soon as I saw it. I have been a fan of The Dresden Files for quite some time so spending a bit of time with Harry Dresden and company was something that I was quite eager to do. I went into this book with pretty high expectations simply because I have come to expect great things from this series. I am happy to say that this book me ...more
Brief Cases is book 15.1 in the wonderful Dresden Series. The reason for the decimal is because this isn't a full novel but instead a compilation of short stories that the author has written and previously published in other areas plus an all new story of Harry Dresden.
While I enjoyed the stories there were only 3 stories that really kept me wanting more. The one about Molly was super as I always wanted to see just what she would do after Ghost Story. The one about Butters was strange and sho ...more
It's Molly Carpenter's first week as the Winter Lady. Mab has tasked her with collecting a tribute from the Miksani, a small group of Fae who live in Alaska. When Molly arrives at the town, she finds Warden Carlos Ramirez is also there. He has been sent to help the Miksani. Molly and Carlos soon discover that something strange is going on. Some local fishermen have been possessed by some scary creatures. Molly is hoping this doesn't ruin her first assignment as the Winter Lady.

I already read most of these in other collections.
First, I had no idea that James Marsters wasn't narrating all of the stories. While I was OK with the narrator for the Molly POV stories, the Lucio story was unlistenable for me and I had to skip it. That was also the only one of the previously-published stories I had not read, which is really irritating.
I liked the Harry and Mouse scenes in Zoo Day, but not Maggie. Honestly, I don't read the Dresden Files for its female characters - and that includes female children. Likewise ...more

This is one of those times that I wish GR had half stars. This collection deserves better than 3 stars (at least my 3-star rating), but I don’t know if it really deserves 4. I’ll break it down by story, do some Goodreads math, and see how it comes out.
"Fistful of Warlocks"—3.5 stars. Loved the idea, but it was a little underdeveloped. (view spoiler)[and I didn’t like it that Luccio needed to be saved by Wyatt Earp (hide spoiler)]
"B is for Bigfoot"— ...more
