Overview

Cursor's Fury (Codex Alera Series #3) by Jim Butcher

In his acclaimed Codex Alera novels, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher has created a fascinating world in which the powerful forces of nature take physical form. But even magic cannot sway the corruption that threatens to destroy the realm of Alera once and for all...

About the Author

A martial arts enthusiast whose résumé includes a long list of skills rendered obsolete at least two hundred years ago, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher turned to writing as a career because anything else probably would have driven him insane. He lives mostly inside his own head so that he can write down the conversation of his imaginary friends, but his head can generally be found in Independence, Missouri. Jim is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera novels, and the Cinder Spires series, which began with The Aeronaut’s Windlass.

This is the third edition in the codex alera series, and it's no disappointment. As the title would lead one to believe, the protagonist has moved up in the world a bit, and he joins the Legions who, of course, go to war. There are lots of great battle scenes that are beautifully detailed without being too gory. I'm not too interested in war or fighting, but the literary style keeps things interesting. The pace is fast and gives one a sense of being there in the moment, with all of the adrenaline of the battlefield. And there is no shortage of character development and interesting story line. Definitely a worthwhile read!

The 3rd book in the Codex Alera series and I think it just gets better. I really enjoyed this book it was action packed and intense with a liberal dusting of humor. I saved this book for a weekend so I could just sit and read and I am glad I did. I only surfaced to do the bare necessities of house chores then returned to the novel and resumed being immersed in the world of Alera.

One of those series that just keep getting better. Tavi is quickly becoming an engaging character and looks to be well on his way to becoming the next First Lord. I can not wait to read the future installments to watch as his growth continues.

The Codex Alera series is very good with fantastic characters and a fast passed and complex story. Jim Butcher is a great author and really put a lot of humor and morals into his work (without being annoying or preachy) A really good book.

I'm impressed by Butcher, but I'm happier with his Chicago wizard. This series is quite good, well worth your time, not as original as the Chicago books.
