In Furies of Calderon, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher introduced readers to a world where the forces of nature take physical form. But now, it is human nature that threatens to throw the realm into chaos…
For centuries, the people of Alera have harnessed the furies—elementals of earth, air, fire, water, wood, and metal—to protect their land from aggressors. But no fury can save them from the dangers they face within. A mysterious attack from across the sea has weakened the First Lord. Should he fall, a bloody civil war is inevitable. The responsibility of fending off assassination attempts and treachery within the First Lord’s circle of spies falls on Tavi, the one man with no fury to call...
Keep them comming Jim! Way to Go!
I was rather reluctant to pick this series up as it didn't really seem like my type of book, however as I was in need of a quick fix and the next Dresden book is months away I gave it a try and have been rather pleasently suprised. Great series. Jim treats the reader as if they are intelegent, not spelling out each and every thing like some popular authors tend to do. A very enjoyable story with engaging characters. Worth every penny!
this 2nd book follows such a great starting book that i was really excited to get it, and i was not at all disappointed. it feels so great to find a good series (im in my car 8hrs /day and love a good series to listen to) with characters i like; and stories that at times may be a bit predictable, but are truly and thoroughly enjoyable. this book had many good action scenes that are written in a way that make me really see all the magic and fighting and love scenes as if i were there. GREAT BOOK!!!
Very good book, better than most.
Nice to find a new series worth listening to. Not the best (for me that would be The Way of Kings by BS), but really enjoyed the story. Wouldn't buy it for kids, this is not Harry Potter. Happy I made the purchase and felt the reader did a good job. Again, not the best series ever made, but worth every penny. Really liked the clever villians, yes the over-all story line is "perdictable", but it sometimes is nice when the good guys win. Really enjoyed the villians and how characters come to life.
