This series is among my top three favorites. One of my others is also by Jim. He has an impressive ability to drag you in and keep you interested throughout the entire series, even through the mundane pieces. This particular book is the most emotional of the series and it brings you close to all of the main characters.
Tell us about yourself!
great narration. enjoy this series though I am getting a tad battle weary, some character development in Katai and the Murat would be awesome.
The series seems a bit slow to build up but by this book all the groundwork from the previous books pays off. I highly recommend this series
This is the series that just keeps on giving! I am pleased to say that book four has been the best so far, so I have high expectations for books five and six! Each book has built upon the last and at this point you really have a feel for the characters and can enjoy watching them grow. I will be starting book five later today!
Sci-fi, mystery and action-adventure fan
The Codex Alera series gets better with every book. The books add up to a major epic and are so well written you eventually get caught up in the characters and the story.
