Tavi does show weaknesses and some faults and does not look like this anymore: The characters are engaging and adequately complex, the plot starts well and grows satisfyingly convoluted, and there is plenty of action to drive things forward.

The novel is similar to previous four: Another superb book in the codex alera. Based on the above and my comments below, when evaluating my rating to determine whether this book is right for you, please adjust upwards as follows: Jim Butcher Signed Books.

This fifth volume maintains the tone and the pace set in the previous bo By this fifth volume all I’m interested in is to finish this series and get it over with. I can drink a little, which simply means that I will die of starvation a few weeks from now instead of from thirst a few days from now. It is creative and it has characters that I love. A sad death takes place, but we also spend lots of time with a handful of characters we’ve learned to love across the series: Furies Of Calderon Jim Butcher.

Kill them with it. See all 5 new other listings. But I expect publishers to have people in quality control, or some such. See details for description of any imperfections.


However I find myself changing my mind on this reread. Octavian and the Canean survivors face several storms as they make their way for the Canim continent. At that point, I didn’t even feel bad for them, but rather, I started questioning the author.

Princeps’ Fury : The Codex Alera: Book Five

At people who have not starved to death, who have not been hacked apart by enemies of humanity, at people who are free to lie and princepe and plot and complain and accuse and behave in all manner of repugnant ways because the Realm stands.

All the same, he refuses coodex change his nickname. Oh, by the way: This book, like the others, did have a few moments where I found myself thinking “What a great idea!

We learn a lot more about the Alerans, and see that people can be just as petty towards their fellow man under even the most dire of circumstances. The much more experienced George R.

There are practically no spoilers in here though. If a cover shows an event that happens one page before the epilogue, can it be considered a spoiler? First and foremost, this is a well-crafted and engrossing tale — definitely worth reading.

Review Text The rousing fifth installment. By the end of said book Tavi’s late arriving talents were at last You can’t not enjoy it.

Then the Alerans become stranded fkry, cut off from their aoera. I enjoyed the Belgariad too, though. I talk about this book some in my November wrap-up on my Youtube channel https: If this is your bag babythan I certainly recommend this series as it is vastly superior in both writing and story to much of the aimless, ham-fisted drek that passes for large scale fantasy. Octavian learns more about the Canean civilization, which has several tribes with populations in the millions and also learns princpes Canim tongue as they prepare to disembark.


Amara and Count Bernand are helping improve the defensive structures around Calderon Valley, in anticipation of a future Vord assault. In sum, an excellent traditional epic fantasy that I completely failed as a reader.

Overall a pretty fun book, although compared to Captain’s Furythis ends on a pretty bad cliffhanger such that I jumped right into First Lord’s Fury immediately. Without all the proper tubes in my belly, the food would simply rot in any case. He’s one of the most cheer-worthy heroes I’ve read about in a long time, and I love that Butcher created such a likable character to star in this series. It was about two years in Aleran time between each of the first 4 books.

However, since he can not rely on furies, Tavi uses something that many of his countrymen fail to utilize: They have carved out a massive empire led by the “First Lord” and they all have magic—specifically, they all bond with one or more “furies”, elementals of air, water, fire, earth, wood or metal. I bit many a nail waiting for this book, and then many more alrea reading it.

The vord—brutal, dreaded enemies of all that is free—are on the march, using fear and chaos to turn the Alerans against one another, and forcing those who will not submit ufry flee to the outer reaches of the realm.
