A civil war in Alera plus an invasion by the Canim? Oy.

Tavi having to fake being an officer as part of his duties as a cursor, only for everyone to die and him somehow to end up in charge of everything? Still without furycraft of his own? Oy oy.

Turning his smarts to his advantages with tactics that no city-raised fury-capable warrior would ever dream of and (of course) saving the day? OY!

Hints that as huge as the events of this book are, they're nothing to what is coming next? ... oy.

Quite a book.

Tavi is a wonderful character and deserves the trust he eventually gains from his men. At times, he seems impossibly good at what he does, but given the disadvantages he has to work around, perhaps it's deserved. It's enough to get around the 'chosen one' / 'too powerful main character' tropes at least in my mind. Good for that.

On top of that, the side mission with Bernard and Amara (still wonderful together) along with High Ladies Aria Placida and Aquitaine to rescue prisoners held by another High Lord? We haven't had much chance to see what the top tiers of fury crafters can do, other than vague hints at Gaius' powers and Lady Aquitaine saving the day in [b:Academ's Fury|133664|Academ's Fury (Codex Alera, #2)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1381026900s/133664.jpg|6614430]. Watching them let loose? Wow Tavi is outclassed. And still manages to hold his own.

And on top of that on top of that? Finally getting some more backstory from Isana and Fade along with a surprising-but-not-in-hindsight bit of growth for the both of them? Isana cares about those close to her far, far more than most people do, to an honestly insane extent. Oh, she's an interesting one.

And oh, that last scene! Tavi has finally come into his furycraft! Only to find out that somehow Kitai has furies as well?! AH! NEXT BOOK!

I had forgotten how good this series is.

ONWARDS! ( )

Another great book in the series, some parts were a bit too drawn out for me as compared to the previous two books, but kept my attention. Some great reveals at the end of the book, can't wait to continue on to the next in the series. ( )

The plot is developing amazingly. Now I cannot leave this series before I am done with the last book. ( )

Cursor’s Fury is the third book in the six-book Codex Alera series. I thought this book was nearly as good as the previous one. The enemy wasn’t as exciting to me, but the characters and the story and all the action still held my interest well.

I really don’t have much to say that I haven’t said already about the previous books, but I do have one other comment that belongs behind spoiler tags:

As much as I’m enjoying the series, one thing it really doesn’t have going for it is a lot of surprises. The various “revelations” are telegraphed well in advance so that the reader is probably already going to know or at least suspect them by the time they’re revealed. Until the end of this book, the only other real time I remember being surprised was at the beginning of the first book when Fidelias turned out to be a traitor.

So maybe it isn’t surprising that my second big surprise, near the end of this third book, was also related to Fidelias. I never even considered that Marcus might be somebody else in disguise, much less Fidelias, even though there were a few hints that something might be up with Marcus and there had been indications in the previous book that Fidelias was having second thoughts about his choices. There was even a fairly blatant hint shortly before the revelation when Amara was wondering where Fidelias had been, but I didn't make the connection. I did catch the moment when he recognized Tavi for who he was, but didn't read any more into it. I must be slipping!

The world and character building across this series is pretty darn spiffing. I particularly enjoyed some of the bizarre tactics from this one. ( )
