The Law: A Dresden Files Novella (Dresden Files, Book 17.5) Audible Audiobook – Original recording
Not every danger comes in the form of a mega-threat like a Titan. Some predators are a lot cozier...more personal.
When one such creature threatens an independent tutor, Harry Dresden must shake off the blood and dirt of his most recent battles and rise to the occasion, even when it turns out that the new predator is far more dangerous and connected than first appearances would suggest.

*** What to Expect
Expect a shorter story, about a quarter of the usual novel length. More importantly, after the over-the-top events of the last two novels, expect a bit of return to basics. Harry is called up to help someone, whose needs seem only marginally related to the supernatural world (though, of course, they end up escalating).
*** What I liked
I much prefer this intimate tone, with smaller events and tighter plots, with cases of human concerns not pan-galactic comic-scale invaders.
*** What to be aware of
After 20 odd years and books, there's a lot already out there in the series continuum. This isn't the place to jump it - you've either read previous novels and liked them enough to read thus far, or need to go back to the beginning to see if you enjoy the series.
*** Felix's Review
Felix, like me, enjoys following Harry's adventures. And, like any sane person let alone a paranormal detective, enjoys helping nice people and would rather leave pan-dimensional horrors to someone like Harry.
A good interlude for the main series. As is often the case, such episodes are more charming then the big drama.
Enjoying the reviews, but wondering who the heck is that Felix fellow? Glad you asked! He's the protagonist of the Togas, Daggers, and Magic series, an historical-fantasy blend of a paranormal detective on the background of ancient Rome.
Assaph Mehr, author of Murder In Absentia: Togas, Daggers, and Magic - for lovers of Ancient Rome, Murder Mysteries, and Urban Fantasy.

Mab would never hurt him as if you recall dresden was born when the stars were right, and is pivertial to ending the outsiders, please please bring everthing to the end,.
I know the volumes you set your self tofinish, but you keep getting sidetracked by your other projects
I have read every book since day1, l don't know what else to say, this seems to me a thing to keep everyone involved, it didn't work for me, sorry
Put the other way: if you take a second or third rate Law and Order script and replace the various departments of law and police and crims with fancy named Fae characters and the like, then this is what this novella represents.
Thank the lords (and ladies) that this was a free read with Kindle.
It's not just you, Jim.
The Law has the usual mix of magic and mayhem, but with greater emphasis on rules and the Unseelie Accords. Some interesting new characters are introduced, from a ‘Nameless’ lawyer to a Lapland Witch, all deftly described in memorable imagery. The story ticks along briskly but on a single arc, enjoyable snack rather than a satisfying meal.
There is little jeopardy or real sense of risk, which you sense may be a challenge in future novels following the cataclysmic scale of the last few books in the series. I look forward to a full sized next episode, perhaps fleshing out some of the new characters and broadening the back stories of the wider cast.
