I just loved this book!
This is the END of the Codex Alera series, and if you're like me, it gets tedious reading these series with cliff hanger endings, then waiting 12, or 18 months before you can read another installation of the story. Jim Butcher created this intriguing planet, with well developed characters, good and bad guys, battles galore and a couple of love stories. I gave this book a rating of 5 stars, because when I got to the end and read that I wasn't going to be strung along towards another book, I was so happy and so was the ending!
This is a great series for boys, my son has enjoyed it, and says it's just like some video game he plays. I liked NOT being able to anticipate what was going to happen with the story, like so many other books.
I don't recommend First Lord's Fury if you haven't read the 5 other books in this Codex Alera series. Knowing the ending will just ruin so much, and happily I only found one type-OH on page 189-->>> Leaned, not learned into the blade.
That Jim Butcher... he has a wonderful imagination!

A very exciting finish to a well written series. I loved all of them and this finale did not disappoint. As with the genre, the end can be predicted but the method of arriving was fun and somewhat unique.

It was a wonderful end to a great series. Jim Butcher is my favorite fantasy author, though I like his other series, The Dresden Files, better. First Lord's Fury reflects the author's ability to bring fresh perspectives to fantasy, and he always manages to put his characters into situations that seem impossible to resolve, giving his books an edge-of-the-seat roller coaster ride.

I couldn't wait for the paperback, so I borrowed it from the library - and what a finish! Tavi, now technically First Lord of Alera, still has to find his way back home with his Canim allies to battle the Vord that is slowly decimating his land and people. His enemy Aquitainius Attis had been officially "adopted" by the late First Lord Gaius Sextus before he died, and so now commands until Tavi gets home. But treachery lurks among the Canim sorcerers, First Spear Valiar Marcus's true identity as the traitor Fidelias has been exposed to Tavi, and his mother Isana is captured by the Vord Queen. The Alerans are holding against the hoard but dying little by little as they struggle to overcome the sheer numbers of the mindless insect-creatures. Can Tavi find and destroy the Vord Queen before it's too late?


Butcher's rousing conclusion to this magnificent fantasy does not disappoint and the sheer devastation he leaves his world in quite takes your breath away. There were only two minor story points that did not sit well with me - that he took Attis away too conveniently instead of having a political showdown with Tavi, and that the Vord Queen at the end just fell too quickly and seemed to just give up. Otherwise he provides a thrilling end, and even leaves the possibility of future sequels open. I would love a return visit to this world!
