Furies of Calderon – Codex Alera Book 1

Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera, #1)Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

 

$9.99 seemed like a lot for an e-book, but I love the series so I didn’t have a choice.

Having said that, going back to Tavi, Amara, Bernard, Isana, and Fade is like going back to visit old family. The first book feels a bit awkward in spots, but I know that the series was just getting warmed up.

I’ll update my review in a day or so when I finish it up. 🙂

Entry 2…I’m about 85% through at this point, but now that we are into the meat of the book I remembered why it’s such an awesome series. The love affair growing between Bernard and Amara, and the first blush of love (and other things) between Tavi and Kitai.

I’m about to get to the finale of the battle at the end, and the partial reveal of Fade’s true self. Its one of my favorite parts of this book, and actually this series.

A great book, but I still think 9.99 is too much for an ebook that isn’t a new release.  I’ve already bought the paperbacks once and lost them in a move, so it just irks me.  All that aside, its a great opening novel to the Codex Alera.
