The power-hungry High Lord of Kalare has launched a rebellion against the aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus, who with the loyal forces of Alera must fight beside the unlikeliest of allies—the equally contentious High Lord of Aquitaine.

Meanwhile, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name even as the ruthless Kalare unites with the Canim, bestial enemies of the realm whose vast numbers spell certain doom for Alera. When treachery from within destroys the army’s command structure, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced, poorly equipped legion—the only force standing between the Canim horde and the war-torn realm.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 1/31/2014

    " 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 Sands | 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? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel | 1/13/2014

    " The story just gets better and better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Aley | 1/10/2014

    " These books are great! They seem to improve with each book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 1/4/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Shaw | 12/12/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 10/8/2013

    " My favorite so far of the Codex Alera books. Great action and I loved the storyline. "

  • 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 Sackleh | 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clint | 5/10/2012

    " Story finally began picking up "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie D'ghent | 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica Bailey | 2/8/2012

    " Damn. I need the next book now! "

    " Fantastic read. Butcher has created a very rich world with characters you can easily become attached to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josephine | 9/28/2011

    " This series is so different from his Dresden Files, but so good. Love the story line, the characters, the world and look forward to the next in the series "

  • 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 4/1/2011

    " See my comments for Book 2 of the Codex Alera series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allie | 3/26/2011

    " Great series, not one of those that is repetitive "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 3/22/2011

    " Still loving these, and I am also plowing through them quickly.... can't wait to finish the series, and then go back to re-read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy | 3/14/2011

    " 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.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 2/23/2011

    " The series is really starting to get good. I enjoy the cool new ideas and conflict introduced here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary-Helen | 2/22/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerjonji | 2/20/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloriavirtutisumbra | 1/29/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/15/2011

    " My absolute favourite of the series. I couldn't put this book down, and had to pick up the next one right away! "

About the Author
Author Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. He read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old—The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight, he’d added the rest of the Narnia books, the Chronicles of Prydain, every book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels, and The Lord of the Rings to his count. He was pretty much doomed from the start. Love of fantasy drew him toward a fairly eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding, archery, martial arts, costuming, music, and theater. He played a lot of role-playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and eventually got into live-action role-play. He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until, just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every piece of her advice. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways. The result was the Dresden Files. She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on writing. Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera. He has plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one.
