5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of modern Fantasy Fiction., 4 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera) (Codex Alera (Paperback)) (Paperback)
This review is for books one, two and three of The Codex Alera.

We start the story with Tavi and his uncle looking for a lost herd of sheep, while looking they attacked by a Marat warrior.
Tavi is forced to flee while his uncle lies injured, his uncle finally manages to escape. This leaves only Tavi to hunt.
After several days of running Tavi manages to escape. While returning home he finds an injured woman, her name is Amara and she is a Cursor(warrior, spy, assassin) for the First High Lord.

And so Tavi's adventure begins through the invasion of the Marat and the treason of some of Alera's high lords. Through to his education at the Academy and to him joining the Cursors and stopping an assassination attempt by the dreaded Vord.
And then his adventure continues through civil war and to the invasion of the Cane, during this time he has command of his own Legion and eventually to the defeat of the Cane.

These are the first Jim Butcher novels I have read and they were brilliant, they were very well written, the magical elements of the story were great(they were almost as good as the magic in Erikson's books) and the battle scense's were AMAZING definatly in the top three of any fantasy I have ever read.

P.S, The forth book in this series is out now on hardback.

I hope this review was of some help to you.
