Great story, well read. Highly recommend
Confrontation with the queen
Liked the whole thing
Its a wonderful part of the series...fits in seamlessly
I like the vague references to the Romans
i rarely listen twice. i would consider it with these books
a different interpretation of the characters.
these books build a story that kept me interested in both the characters and the world they lived in. i thoroughly enjoyed the series.
This is a fun and easy read. The story is well crafted and the characters are well developed.
Ms. Reading does a very good job.
I absolutely love this series!! I wish this book was a little longer and had more adventure, but everything that was included in the adventure was great! All I can add to this is, we need more of the series, even if it is loving and rebuilding the civilization with all the new occupants.
How the whole series flows - excellent
Tavi, he starts out as the ultimate underdog and ends up with incredible brilliance, strength and leadership skills.
Her ability to keep track of all of the different character voices
excellent story, Butcher reaches his full stride in this universe.
The final battle with the Vord queen was flawless.
Strange edits in this book, lots of jumps where there should be brief pauses.
Minmal backstory and a well written book
Moon gives us a great view into the minds of her characters..the depth of emotion and the thought process and logic behind them is vivid, believable, and entertaining....
Odiana is one of her best performed in the series....while not a major character she gives this one alot of depth.....
Roman battle wizards and politcal intrigue abound
Well read well written....a good buy if you're a member but 39$ is too much for a book this length if you're not...go be an audiobook junkie like me and the price is right.....
When Mr. Butcher wants to fill a reader with suspense, he certainly can. He proves this in
Princeps' Fury; however, this book is riddled with lulls between the exciting bits that make you wish the story would just get on with it! I do not think Alera should have been stretched out this far, and I say this with one more book to go in the series.
Perhaps what separates this series from Mr. Butcher's other, his Dresden Files, is it is a continuously building story whose ending is predictable. Obviously, I should not include spoilers in my review, so I won't. However, I've already placed a bet with a friend who is also reading this series about how it will all end.
Another issue I am facing with these books is the romance scenes. I do not know if it is Kate Reading's performance or just the writing itself, but I cannot help but skip past them. Certainly having Ms. Reading read the part of the "deep, gravely" voice of Bernand is a little laughable. She tries, though, to her credit. I think the story would be improved if the romances between the characters were downplayed.
I was looking for a filler while waiting for the last WoT .... Codex Alera filled the bill. my only complaint is that "I want more". And the BEST part is ... we have an author who delivered a complete story in a timely fashion. If you like WoT and Miistborn ... you will love the Codex Alera series. And there is NO waiting YEARS for closure. l LOVED IT. And try to form, Kate Redding delivers an excellent reading.
Sci-fi/Fantasy fan with a library-worth of reading behind him
A vast improvement over the already excellent other books in this series. What can I say other than that most of my minor gripes with the previous books were gone in this one. And when I say most, I mean all except those accursed trumpets hahaha.
All in all, a great listen that I highly recommend. At the end of it I was very glad that I had an extra credit ready for the last book!
