    I had to think of Sandersons Laws of magic while reading the novels because there areanddifferences between oldfashioned worlds that use the inner character personalization universe as a contrast point in mixture with the world and the fantasy and the new works that unite all elements.

    My least favorite, so far.I love to read about Tavi and his immediate circle of friends Kitai, Max, Ehren, Crassus, Marcus I love to read about what political hijinks Lord Lady Aquitaine are up to, and what Lady Aria Placida, Issana Araris are doing to try to help stop them And I love to read about Fidelias and his struggle to play both sides against each other But Bernard and Amara are just as dull as dishwater.I mean, I like them, but I tend to zone out a tad when reading about their My least favorite, so far.I love to read about Tavi and his immediate circle of friends Kitai, Max, Ehren, Crassus, Marcus I love to read about what political hijinks Lord Lady Aquitaine are up to, and what Lady Aria Placida, Issana Araris are doing to try to help stop them And I love to read about Fidelias and his struggle to play both sides against each other But Bernard and Amara are just as dull as dishwater.I mean, I like them, but I tend to zone out a tad when reading about their adventures And this time around they were evenboring than usual.Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Too big a chunk of the story was spent following Bernard, Amara, and Gaius on their loooooong journey to Lord Kalare s lands.They re heading into the woods Now it s raining Now they re in a swamp Will they make it in time to save the day And, yes It wasn t like things didn t happen to them on the journey, but none of those things needed to be described in any sort of detail Butcher could have told us where they were going and why, skipped over all the traveling through the woods crap, and then had them show up and do their thing at the end Boom Done I would have enjoyed the book a lotBut there were some really cool stories that unfolded in Captain s Fury, and those kept me coming back for .Gaius leaves Tavi and his legion with some high ranking political vipers, which leads him into several seemingly impossible situations with massive moral and legal ramifications Of course, I knew Tavi would fix it in some ingenious way.But that confidence was in no small part due to the spoilery, idiotic names of these books.Seriously Come on, Butcher Still For all its faults, I m totally into this series and I can t wait to read the next one

    This installment picks up right where the previous one left, so expect some minor spoilers that I will try to minimize The rebellion of a High Lord still goes on the invading force is still present in Alera Tavi and other regulars of the series are still where they were left in the end of book 3 The High Lord of Alera decided that enough is enough and it is time to abandon the diplomacy and show people his raw power What is the problem with this It left Tavi to deal with diplomacy and resu This installment picks up right where the previous one left, so expect some minor spoilers that I will try to minimize The rebellion of a High Lord still goes on the invading force is still present in Alera Tavi and other regulars of the series are still where they were left in the end of book 3 The High Lord of Alera decided that enough is enough and it is time to abandon the diplomacy and show people his raw power What is the problem with this It left Tavi to deal with diplomacy and resulting bureaucracy This part of the series clearly shows that bureaucracy can be deadlier than invasion of barbarians, alien forces, and sworn strong enemy living across the sea combined The image is by Sandara from Deviant Art I am not kidding by my estimate the losses of lives here were heavier than in the previous books To make Tavi s life even less boring he happened to stay exactly on the way of some high powered ambitious lords to their goals Can his life get evenexciting than this It surely can I am happy to say Tavi finally stopped being Gary Stu and becamefleshed out character So did one other character whose name I skip to avoid spoilers The end of the book was also quite good it opened up interesting possibilities for the heroes, especially yet another unnamed person While the parts related to the High Lord and his companions misadventures are quite boring, Tavi and the First Legionthan make up for this in the excitement department I look forward to reading the next book of the series and at this point it is probably safe to say that I like itthan the better known one of the author, The Dresden Files The rating is 4 stars It is recommended to people who like Dresden Files, but think that Harry Dresden overstayed his welcome, or became annoyed with him

    To me, this book has been the most fun in the series so far, which is great I read this as part of the Rainbowthon and I found myself managing to get through this is just 2 days, very exciting.This is set in a world where magic is the norm and everyone has at least one weak Fury kind of a magic spirit If you are very proficient with the Fury or Furies that you control and use then it slikely that you re a noble or someone who has a position of power, although some keep the true extent To me, this book has been the most fun in the series so far, which is great I read this as part of the Rainbowthon and I found myself managing to get through this is just 2 days, very exciting.This is set in a world where magic is the norm and everyone has at least one weak Fury kind of a magic spirit If you are very proficient with the Fury or Furies that you control and use then it slikely that you re a noble or someone who has a position of power, although some keep the true extent of their powers hidden.There are three major races in this book who we follow The Aleran s are the main race that most of our central character s are from We then have the Marat race which is largely based on tribes and customs, and have very different ways to the Aleran s Finally we have the Canim who are a super large wolf like race They re often seen as the bad guys and in this book they re against the Aleran s, but some of them arereasonable than others.So this story oncefollows Tavi as the lead character with others also taking leading roles Tavi is a young man by the time we meet him in this book and he s been masquerading as Scipio, the young Captain leading troops against the Canim The war against the Canim has been going on for a while and it s only now that Alera are at full strength and ready to really take them on and hopefully win Tavi is stuck leading troops and soldiers whilst all around him people are jealous of his position and envious of the men loyal to him He s in a fair few deadly situations and close calls across the book, but this doesn t stop him from showing us his determination and skilful planning, and resourcefulness when things inevitably go wrong.Isana is Tavi s aunt and has basically cared for him from his birth She s one of the closest people to him, but she s kept a secret about his heritage for a long long time, and she s reluctant to tell Tavi even though he s now old enough This secret has been the worry of her life, and she s tense and worried about his reaction to it She s also kind of a pawn in another s game Lady Aquitine who wants her to do her bidding in return for earlier help Overall Isana is also put into some tough predicaments, yet she actually relishes these once they re done with and the unburdening seems to help her expand herself and her powers.Amara is a Curser who is working for the First Lord, Gaius as she has done for much of her life She s a clever character who knows how to act quickly and do her job well She s very competent and one of the best wind Fury controllers out there when it comes to flight She s loyal to Gaius beyond a doubt, and she s happy to accompany him on a very mysterious mission without too much explanation.Despite all this she has a secret which is to do with the man she loves She s trying to fulfil her role to Gais at all times, but sometimes she wishes things were different and Curser s could get married and live a simple lifeMarcus is a member within the troops working with Tavi He s a man who has a very shady past, but due to some events of the previous books his earlier alliances with the Aquitine s may now be tested and he s not sure who he should root for He s manipulative and very good at guessing what may come to pass so he s a dangerous character to be on the wrong side of He also doesn t like to be controlled His story certainly interested me a lotas the book went on and we saw him as amajor viewpoint character.Kitai was, once , my favourite character as she s quick and sharp in all senses of the words She s funny and can make jokes, but she s also been raised in a way that s very different from the people of Alera because she s a Marat She s fun to read about and imagine and I feel like she s the sort of person you d like to be friends with because being her enemy would be deadly.Finally Gaius himself deserves a fair mention as he s one of the most powerful men in all of the land with many Furies under his command and a long time of ruling and experience He s a fairly old man by this point of the story but the events of the ongoing conflicts from two sides have forced him to act and take matters into his own hands At some points of this book his frailty was wonderfully shown and at others his power and immense strength of will and magic was also brilliantly shown Overall I think he s a bit of a bad ass On the whole this book was just the type of book I was looking for right now It was fun, fast paced and a return to character I already knew and enjoyed Slipping back into the world was very easy and it felt like I could remember everything that I needed to even though it had been a fair time since I last picked up the book before I thoroughly enjoyed the read through for this and would give it a 5 rating Recommended as a very fun and fast high fantasy series

    3.5 stars Another excellent installment in what has turned out to be an above average epic fantasy series The description of the book tells enough about the story that I won t re hash the plot and will simply point out a few things I like about the story The progression of Tavi from young, naive, fury less Country boy to a veteran, capable, fury full is that a word Captain of the Aleran forces has been thoughful, understandable and well done I also find myself really liking the characters 3.5 stars Another excellent installment in what has turned out to be an above average epic fantasy series The description of the book tells enough about the story that I won t re hash the plot and will simply point out a few things I like about the story The progression of Tavi from young, naive, fury less Country boy to a veteran, capable, fury full is that a word Captain of the Aleran forces has been thoughful, understandable and well done I also find myself really liking the characters Butcher has created and believe that he has done a better job in this series at fleshing out the characters and making them three dimensional than in hispopular Dresden books which I also like by the way As with the previous books, the political elements are always present and Butcher does a good job in creating tension among the various factions while continuing to introduce new players to the game I also have enjoyed how Butcher has continuously added new elements to the magical elements of the story in order to keep the story from growing stale, but not does SO MUCH that the story loses its dramatic appeal the introduction of the Great Furies in this book is a good example Overall, this is top notch epic fantasy and one I RECOMMEND fans of the genre Looking forward to the next installment
