This book is not a stand alone work and for anyone picking it up without having read the previous books in the series it's not going to make much sense. Jim Butcher doesn't waste time rehashing previous plot points for the uninitiated, he just plunges straight into the action and this book is seriously full of action.
The story begins several months after the events in Captain's Fury.Read more ›

Princeps Fury is the fifth book in the Alera series, it is not a stand alone novel you will need to read the previous books. All five books are above average. Do yourself a favour go out and get this series you will not be disappointed. Great Christmas present to yourself.
The Codex Alera series continues this style of writing, but in the fantasy genre, which is one I love. I look forward to each new book, only disappointed when I finish the book and realise I will have to wait some time before the next one.
His characters are human and as such are easy to associate with (ie not idealistic single dimensional figures as are often found in the fantasy genre) and he keeps several characters running in parallel. This may make the books a little distracting for the slower reader with the leaps to and from events effecting different people and geographies, but I find it keeps the pace moving.
Often as a series progresses things turn stale and you start to see the same plot being recycled, but hidden in different costumes. Not so with this series (so far). Fresh geographies and new characters combine to keep things fresh.
