Butcher, Jim: First Lord’s Fury (The Codex Alera VI) (2009)

Map by Priscilla Spencer The last book of The Codex Alera is another brick. First Lord’s Fury is almost 700 pages long. I think the reason I like Tavi’s character is because he is a bit crazy. Just crazy enough to see possibilities where the rest of us aren’t able to. Me, I lack that … Continue reading Butcher, Jim: First Lord’s Fury (The Codex Alera VI) (2009)

Butcher, Jim: Princep’s Fury (The Codex Alera V) (2008)

Princep’s Fury is the fifth and penultimate book in The Codex Alera series. What can I say about this series now that it is almost over? One thing that is obvious is that Jim Butcher‘s writing is getting better and better. Hard work does pay. I’m hopeful that Jim benefits from this. As a reader, I … Continue reading Butcher, Jim: Princep’s Fury (The Codex Alera V) (2008)

Butcher, Jim: Cursor’s Fury (The Codex Alera III) (2007)

Great cover-art, huh. The artist is Steve Stone. I Guess it is about time that you saw who on Earth writes this Codex Alera series.

Academ’s Fury follows Calderon’s Fury as book number two in the Codex Alera by Jim Butcher. You know the saying, “you should be careful what you wish for”. Well, Tavi has gotten his wish, and it is proving a bit more of a handful than he would have liked. For one thing, going to an … Continue reading Butcher, Jim: Academ’s Fury (The Codex Alera II) (2006)

Butcher, Jim: The Codex Alera: The Furies of Calderon (2004)

Today was a first for me. I had to check my blog to see if I had written about Jim Butcher’s books. Maybe I should read less. Most people probably connect the name Jim Butcher with the urban fantasy series Dresden Files. This was my introduction to Jim Butcher. I’m not certain where I found … Continue reading Butcher, Jim: The Codex Alera: The Furies of Calderon (2004)
