First Lord’s Fury…

First Lord’s Fury is the sixth (and final) book in the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The book follows on from where the Princep’s Fury ended. This book returns to the juggernaut pace of Captains Fury. I mentioned previously that some parts of the series were quite predictable, but that didn’t detract from the enjoyment and expectation. That [...]




Princep’s Fury…

Princep’s Fury is the fifth book in the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The book starts a few months on from where the Captain’s Fury ended. This book seems a little calmer in comparison, mostly because I was still recovering from the onslaught of the previous book I guess. Each book in the six part series only [...]




Captain’s Fury…

Captain’s Fury is the fourth book in the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The book starts two years on from where the Cursor’s Fury ended.

It’s like a juggernaut ramming into your [...]




Cursor’s Fury…

Cursor’s Fury is the third book in the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The book starts two years on from where the Academ’s Fury ended. I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting the last hundred pages of this book were. I was totally freaking out. I finished the last page at about 02:00 in the [...]




Academ’s Fury…

Academ’s Fury is the second book in the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The book starts two years on from where the Furies of Calderon ended. I’m now totally invested in the characters. They are real to me. I’m already thinking I will miss them (as I do Harry Dresden) when I finish the series [...]




Furies of Calderon…

I was getting a bit of Dresden Files withdrawal, so I decided to give Jim Butcher‘s other series (Codex Alera) a go, starting with Furies of Calderon. It’s very different to the Dresden Files style. For a start, it’s not in first-person, so you don’t feel like you are in the head of any specific [...]
