First Lord's Fury
Author: Jim Butcher
Date: Nov. 24, 2009
Product Description: For years he has endured the endless trials and triumphs of a man whose skill and power could not be restrained. Battling ancient enemies, forging new alliances, and confronting the corruption within his own land, Gaius Octavian became a legendary man of war-and the rightful First Lord of Alera.
But now, the savage Vord are on the march, and Gaius must lead his legions to the Calderon Valley to stand against them-using all of his intelligence, ingenuity, and furycraft to save their world from eternal darkness.
My Thoughts: This sixth book in the Codex Alera series feels like a finale. Almost all through the series which follows the growth of a young man from furyless childhood to adulthood as the First Lord of Alera, Tavi has been concerned with remaking his world. This book deals with stopping the Vord invasion of his homeland. He must forge an alliance with former enemies and defeat the Vord Queen before she destroys everything. This was a very good book of high fantasy filled with magic and adventure. I would recommend the series for those who like their fantasy epic in nature. The characters are realistic and grow and change during the course of the books and are all memorable.
