    " Good book. Not as exciting as the first two but definately filled with action. The whole series has been very formulaic which has made each read enjoyable so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/25/2014

    " 2 years later ... and still more questions that make you look forward to book 4 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 1/20/2014

    " I felt the first book of this series was okay, nothing particularly special though. The second book was MUCH better, and with this one, the series really hits its stride. Epic, high fantasy despite the lack of elves and dwarves. Excellent, excellent. Can you tell I liked this book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marjolein | 8/10/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 3/30/2013

    " Totally EPIC. Answers so many questions that are formed in the second book, and has non-stop action during the last 2/3 of the book. I defininitely recommend this series, the author is very gifted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 8/12/2012

    " A recipe fantasy book. The writing is sometimes simplistic but good enough to bring you along (if annoyed at times). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Helen | 8/2/2012

    " Probably my favorite of the series so far-- And the ending is such a great cliffhanger. I love this series! I am totally sucked in. "

    " Story finally began picking up "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 4/10/2012

    " Once again, a complete shock at the end. How does he do it? I want to say they're unbelievable or out of place, but they're not. It's not normal for me to be snowed so completely, but Butcher can do it! It would have a higher score but, like always, there's sex and swearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerjonji | 4/1/2012

    " I think this was my favorite of the six. Tavi grows into his adulthood, bringing his friends and family along with him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Piat | 5/24/2011

    " Another fast-paced, incredible installment in Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series. Tavi's now a cursor and all of our favorite characters are growing too. The development is great and just such a delicious read!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 4/25/2011

    " I am caught up in the characters and can't quit reading the series even though the author's ability to get me to suspend my disbelief is weak. It does keep me going and wanting to know how Tavi is going get out of it this time. It also seems to me that the titles are off. "

    " Wow, I read that fast. I'm already pretty far into the next one.

    This book started out slow and almost bored me, but when I hit about a quarter of the way into it I was hooked. Jim Butcher may not be Steinbeck, but he does know how to keep a reader engaged. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 3/12/2011

    " I'm very into this series. Book 2 left you wanting to hit book 3. Cursor's fury was fast and I even enjoyed the military battles. And it leaves you wanting to get to book 4 which is Princeps Fury.
    Love the characters, love the magic.... "

    " As odd as it sounds, I'm starting to get a little exhausted with the levels of never ending adventure and crisis in these books, will there ever be a moment when the bleep doesn't all hit the fan at once? But have to find out what happens next.... so..... on to book 4. "
