Tavi of Calderon, now recognized as Princeps Gaius Octavian and heir to the crown, has achieved a fragile alliance with Alera's oldest foes, the savage Canim. But when Tavi and his legions guide the Canim safely to their lands, his worst fears are realized.
The dreaded Vord—the enemy of Aleran and Cane alike—have spent the last three years laying waste to the Canim homeland. And when the Alerans are cut off from their ships, they find themselves with no choice but to fight shoulder to shoulder if they are to survive.
For a thousand years, Alera and her furies have withstood every enemy, and survived every foe.
The thousand years are over . . .
Thanks for posting this CF!
When I read these book there has been been very little shock value. Its not a mystery that I am reading...its a good fantasy-eske story with lots of action and fun filled lines.
also Tavi being the Princeps and Isana being his mom not aunt-decent plot twist
But can someone tell me what in the HELL a metal fury looks like because I'm thinking robomutt (like Brutus) and is Rill humanoid, beastesque, or just one big ass river?
Casp is also right in saying that furies don't have a set form. They appear however the bonded person makes them appear.
SO EXCITED!!! Can't wait for Nov. 25th.
I was like I'll just re-read Captain's, but I really liked Cursors; it was probably my favorite. But then Academ's is also good, and so is Furies of Calderon.
I have a bit more time to decide. I'll probably just end up re-reading them all but only my favorite parts, i.e. all the parts that directly involve Tavi.
I plan to locate a copy of the new one when it comes out though. I can't wait.
I agree with CF. The Tavi they used is NOT my idea of him. I expect someone a little younger...more boyish. and definately cuter!
Only 21 days until its officially out. Though I will be checking my local Borders periodically to see if it gets put out early. They did it with Captain's Fury...so I am hopeful.
I cant say I am sold on the cover either. I wonder if JB ha much say in it, because if he did then thats ok as clearly JB knows what Tavi should look like. If it was some publishers guess then bleah shoot the publisher.
I'm about 1/2 way through...been taking my time with it since it will be eons before the next installment is out.
I did think the events at the Imperia were kind of ... sudden in their ending, but that was absolutely my only non-stellar comment across the entire book. And the last scene, that last page, just left me grinning and wishing next winter would get here. But not too fast - new Dresden's just a bit away.
Like Siesser I think that the events in Imperia weren't given enough time. So much seemed to be glossed over. I would have liked to see Butcher add another 100 pages or so in order to have really fleshed things out and make it all not seem rushed.
This book really sets up a lot for the next (and final *cries*) book in the series. The Canim....wonder what will happen there? The Vord queen...there has got to be meaning in her appearance. Can't wait to see how it all ends up. Thankfully I'll have another Dresden book in the middle to help whet my appetite.
Butcher's website gives the name of the final book.
First Lords Fury
It also says that it's due out in Dec. 2009. I really do like that he has been consistent with his release dates for this series. So many authors you never know when the next one in a series will come out. Waiting is bad enough without adding an unknown publication date to the mix.
I agree that Isana and Amara did not annoy me as much as they had in the other books and I actually started to like Isana. Though both of their attitudes to The First Lord still bugged me. Just seemed so hypocritical.
I know time was of essence but I would have liked Isana to have asked the Icemen why they kept trying to fight or get over the wall. Did the Alerans put the wall up in the middle of their migration route? was the land sacred to the iceman that the Alerans now inhabit? Questions I would love to have had answered but that's just me.
I was a little sad for Rook and due to the revelation at the end wonder if her daughter was safe.
Too many questions not enough answers in this book. Hopefully the last book will wrap everything up nice and neat with a little bow.
