Side Jobs, by Jim Butcher
A collection of short stories featuring the main and supportive characters from Butcher's Dresden Files series. Reading these made me yearn for the next book in the Dresden Files series. As always, Butcher's humor tickles me and his plots/characters compel me to continue reading. This collection of short stories may be an excellent way to pull adolescent readers into the series or Butcher's other series, The Codex Alera. Although readers of the series will be able to bring a layered and complex understanding of the characters and plot to these short stories I also believe that readers new to this would find each story engaging and lucid.
