This is the second book in a great new series. It is every bit as good as the first (Furies of Calderon) and just as hard to put down! Tavi continues to grow into young manhood and to impress those around him. Some new characters join his circle of friends and are just as individual as Tavi and his family are. Tavi and his family/friends are believable and show their weaknesses as well as their strengths. Their enemies, for the most part, aren't all bad. They sometimes have their good sides, too. The settings and the battle scenes are well written. Butcher has adeptly avoided the trap of getting long-winded and too wordy in this area so the story moves quickly. I, for one, and quite happy that Jim Butcher has shared his conversations with his imaginary friends!

When a mysterious creature from Tavi's past resurfaces and hundreds of people throughout Alera disappear, no one realizes how far the danger has spread till it is almost too late. Academ's Fury introduces us to Tavi in the throes of the political upheaval, treachery, and diplomacy that permeate life in the capital. This fantastic read sucks you in from the beginning and leaves you looking for more pages when it ends. It deals with the complicated issues surrounding loyalty, greater good, sacrifice, and compromise. The reader should be aware that it contains some gruesome violence (arms getting ripped off, people pulverized, etc) as well as some sexuality. The sexuality ranges from suggestive comments, to lead up sequences and is my main angst with the book as it prevents me from recommending it to just anyone.

I thought this was a great second edition to the Codex of Alera book series. I wasn't a huge fan of the first book but I enjoy Jim Butcher's writing style. The first book came together very well at the end which made me purchase the second. After the first few chapters, I knew i would read the entire series. The characters were expanded upon and the plot thickened. They referred to the first book on occasions subtly which I enjoy in series like these. They were never too romantic but kept the story of Tavi and Kitai alive. They also kept the action nonstop. When it doesn't seem like it could get worse, it does. I do suggest only reading this book if you plan to continue the series. Jim loves to end each book with a new problem to face.

I found there to be too much political intrigue for my liking. All the twists and turns made it hard to follow. Good book if you lile that but not my cup of tea.

A very riveting series. I am on book 6, "First Lord's Fury" (the last book of this series). I have enjoyed the series almost as much as the "Dresden Files." My daughter-in-law likes this series better than the "Dresden Files." It is a taste thing.
