Publisher's Summary

Power-hungry Kalare has rebelled against Alera's aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus. Ill-equipped to face this attack, Gaius must seek support - even from the combative High Lord of Aquitaine. Kalare has also seized valuable hostages that could mean the difference between victory and failure. And Amara, the First Lord's Cursor, has been tasked with their rescue. She has earned this trust but are her allies as worthy - or does the Lady Aquitaine see the time as ripe for betrayal?

Treachery is rife elsewhere, as young Tavi of Calderon will find. Posted away from the war, Tavi joins a legion anyway, under an assumed name. Then Kalare does the unthinkable - uniting with the brutish Canim.

When treason wipes out the army's command structure, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced legion against the might of the Canim horde - the very last resort of a war-torn realm.

    "Last minute ending. Stupid annoying horns!"

    Overall I did enjoy this installment of the Furies of Calderón series. Tavi's character became more developed, and it was fun to see more of Max (one of my favourite characters). The flashback sequences were well-crafted. I felt Amara became a much more agreeable character in this book.

    The reason it's not getting 5 stars is two fold. Firstly, I feel like it could have done with being shorter in some places and then longer at the end. The final battle felt a bit of an anticlimax. My second reason is those stupid bloody horns which keep sounding at random places throughout the book! I have no idea if they are meant to denote a pause in the book, or if someone is about to do something very heroic, but they are beyond irritating. I often listen to audiobooks to fall asleep, and the sudden jarring sound of a bizarre fanfare is distinctly unwelcome. Whoever had that idea needs a kick up the backside.

    "another good story"

    The biggest issue I have had with the codex alera series is the random loud fanfares that happen mid-chapter.
    These just aren't needed and throw you out of the story.

    I could forgive them if they were between chapters but they happen in places that make no sense at all.

    Other than that the voice work is as expected from Kate and the story is as entertaining as others of Jim's work.

    "still charging along"

    .....the pace hasn't let up yet. Loving this series.

    The clues were coming thick and fast by the end of this book. Love the characters. Still that random trumpeting thing going on, but its not detracting from the overall enjoyment factor.

    Book 4 downloaded and half way through. I'm clearly on a bit of Fury binge at the moment and it's such fun when all the books in the series are ready and waiting for me! (Patrick Rothfuss.....please please finish #3!)

    "Butchery in Action"

    Sorry but wow! The action in this novel builds and builds with a particular emphasis on comararderie and doing the right thing and despite the consequences. Butcher plays the audience like Freddy Mercury plays a stadium. "Not sure my nervous system can take much more of this....oh I'll just listen to one more chapter....and one more...and... "

    "Great - all weaknesses of previous books gone"

    Really enjoyed this one of the series. less jumping between arcs so the pace is maintained. The narration has ironed out quirks imo. my only gripe is that im not convinced kate will be able to make Tavi sound less like a 12 year old boy as the series progresses.

    "Story continuez apace!"

    Very well read. Some questions answered. Some new questions raised. Only spoiled by the pace and excitement being shattered by musical breaks- Idiotic.

    "Why the bugle?"

    This would've been a 5 star if it weren't for the bugle that interrupts paragraphs at least 5 times in the book for absolutely no bloody reason! Very irritating!

    "Great take on a classic plot"

    I've listened to a lot of fantasy books with a similar story arc but this one has captured me like very few others. The story and the performance both top notch. Next in series is already downloaded and ready to go

    "Great story, marred by odd sound effects"

    I loved this book, it's a particularly strong addition to this excellent series. I can't stand the seemingly random fanfares that have been added to the story however. They break up dialogue and moments of tension for too often and serve no purpose.
