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...
When the power-hungry High Lord of Kalare launches a merciless rebellion against the First Lord, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name. And when the ruthless Kalare allies himself with a savage enemy of the realm, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced, poorly equipped legion—the only force standing between Alera and certain doom...
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 conversatio...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting Couldn't put this down. Jim Butcher has such expertise in describing strategy and battle that you'd swear he stepped out of his own pages.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Excellent read! Jim Butcher never fails to pull me right into his world. His stories wild and fantastic and his characters are wonderfully human. He writes with a cleverness that puts you right into the action or into the heads and hearts of characters. Quite often I feel as if I am part of the story. Im going to go read the next book now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cursor's Fury Well, book 3 and actually better than before. This is a well crafted story. I just can't put them down. I start reading and next thing I know I'm at the end of the story and reaching for the next one. Continue along in this world of Alera where Tavi (who is not who he thinks he is) learns a little more about himself and the world around him. It is not a safe place and the empire is in trouble still. Tavi must find a way to achieve victory at a cost that he is able to pay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Three's a Charm... Butcher's 'Codex Alera' series intrigued me from the start - a world vaguely like a Roman world that didn't fall, where everyone can call forth elemental spirits to do their bidding, inhabited by a variety of fascinating cultures and races and monstrous creatures. Our hero, Tavi, is someone who can't use those elemental gifts, and is considered somehow "less" than others, a person to be pitied and protected. But Tavi has had to come up with his own type of magic - ingenuity, training, and knowledge. Having fought off a monstrous invasion, and then a political coup, Tavi has already shown his mettle. But now he's more on his own, having been assigned under cover to a military unit more spit than polish. And with the biggest invasion coming, can Tavi do something he's never done before - rely on others, and lead a group to victory?

Editorial Reviews

“Butcher deftly mixes military fantasy and political intrigue in the rollicking third Codex Alera book...Readers will cheer Tavi every step of the way.”—Publishers Weekly   “The author of the Dresden Files modern fantasy series is equally familiar with old-style, ‘classic’ fantasy, demonstrating his skill in complex plotting and vivid world crafting to masterly effect.”—Library Journal   “Plenty of military action and some interesting revelations about Tavi’s past make this one of the best volumes yet in this entertaining series.”—Locus
