After two years of bitter conflict with the hordes of invading Canim, Tavi of Calderon, now Captain of the First Aleran Legion, realizes that a peril far greater than the Canim exists--the mysterious threat that drove the savage Canim to flee their homeland. Now, Tavi must find a way to overcome the centuries-old animosities between Aleran and Cane if an alliance is to be forged against their mutual enemy. And he must lead his legion in defiance of the law, against friend and foe--or no one will have a chance of survival.… (mais)

[b:Captain's Fury|346087|Captain's Fury (Codex Alera, #4)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1315083292s/346087.jpg|6614434] takes the 'Alera at war' feel of [b:Cursor's Fury|29394|Cursor's Fury (Codex Alera, #3)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388360145s/29394.jpg|6614461] and really turns it up a notch. Tavi has done the impossible and fought a war against the Canim for two years now, holding them in place and building the trust of his followers to impressive levels. But now a new foe is coming for him--a foe far more terrifying than the Canim, or even than the Vord (who are much less interesting when you don't see them on screen for a book or two)... politicians.

Characterwise, Tavi remains among the best part of these books:


"And you've got that look on your face again."

"I can't help it, "Ehren said. "You're about to walk to breakfast, arn't you, regardless of who is in the way?"

"Yes," Tavi said.

Ehren sighed. "Let's hear it."

Tavi told him the plan.

"That's insane," Ehren said.

"It could work."

"You aren't going to have anyone come along to bail you out this time," Ehren pointed out.

Tavi grinned. "Are you with me?"

"The plan is insane," Ehren said. "You are insane." He looked around inside the tent. "I'll need some pants.”


Although to be fair, the characters surrounding him are well done as well. Kitai is just different enough to be interesting and Max/Ehren/Crassus shine in both Legion and Cursor scenes. You want to root for Amara and Bernard, pushed through as much as they are, even when things go sidewise--although that hike across what feels like most of Alera could certainly have been shorter. The Senator earns the hate coming his way.

There aren't huge strides in world building in this book, mostly filling in the cracks. But one thing... do you remember how in [b:Cursor's Fury|29394|Cursor's Fury (Codex Alera, #3)|Jim Butcher|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388360145s/29394.jpg|6614461], I commented on how awe inspiring it was to see a High Lady let loose? Well. Now you get the First Lord himself. Oy. We'll leave it at that.

Overall, this is probably the weakest book of the series since the first, but only because there has to be a weakest book. It's still a wonderful read and I couldn't put down my headphones through long parts of it. The parts towards the end where Gaius sets off a volcano just as Tavi proclaims himself Gauis Octavian. That's writing.

It's a pity there are only two more to go... ( )

Captain’s Fury is the fourth out of six books in the Codex Alera series. This may be one of my shortest reviews ever because I don’t have anything new to say about it that I haven’t already said about the previous books, but I continue to really enjoy this series.

As I’ve said in other reviews, the progression of the main character and the story in general is somewhat predictable and not particularly twisty. However, I also really, really like the main character, as well as many of the secondary characters, I like the direction the story is going in, and I think it’s written well. It has a lot of the elements I tend to enjoy most in epic fantasy. ( )

The world and character building across this series is pretty darn spiffing. This one had a lot of David Weber flavor to some of the action sequences as well, which I rather enjoyed. ( )

This series gets better and better with each book. This one was a labyrinth of political intrigue and decisions and out-maneuvering ones opponents both literally and figuratively. I loved it and can't wait to read the next two.

The ongoing adventures of Tavi, Isana and Amara. Tavi continues to prove his skills as a commander, even when forced to work under a commander with no command skills and one that is a political opponent. The action is still good in these books and so are the characters. There is more exploration of what can be done in this magical system in this one, compared to the previous. ( )
