Publisher's Summary

For centuries, the people of Alera have relied on the power of the furies to protect them from outside invaders. But the gravest threat might be closer than they think.

Tavi has escaped the Calderon Valley and the mysterious attack of the Marat on his homeland. But he is far from safe, as trying to keep up the illusion of being a student while secretly training as one of the First Lord's spies is a dangerous game. And he has not yet learned to use the furies, making him especially vulnerable.

When the attack comes it's on two fronts. A sudden strike threatens the First Lord's life and threatens to plunge the land into civil war. While in the Calderon Valley, the threat faced from the Marat is dwarfed by an ancient menace. And Tavi must learn to harness the furies if he has any chance of fighting the greatest threat Alera has ever known....

    "Kate Reading is wonderful as usual"

    Kate reading remains one of my favorite narrators, and the story is interesting. However, half of chapter 50 is missing, and what I assume to be fanfares between cd's in the original production aren't removed in edit.

    Chapter 50 has a few important plot points, and it gets really confusing a few chapters later when you notice something's missing.

    Story
    "Narration Problems"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It's a good story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Academ's Fury?

    The battle to protect the High Lord.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The use of American pronunciation for basic English words was irritating beyond belief. There were many instances but, missile, fragile and lever will serve as examples.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The editing was poor. The sound quality altered dramatically every time a word or sentence was spliced into the narrative which broke concentration and spoiled an otherwise good book.

    Story
    "The series gathers pace."

    A satisfying second book that begins to gather pace and flesh out the wider story.

    The narrator does a good job, although with Jim Butchers penchant for deep voices, Kate struggles a little in her characterisation. It's not a big issue though.

    I'd recommend these books to fans of the genre. Not genre defining but a good listen for sure.

    Story
    "Huge chunks missing from Audio book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Actually include the whole book.The audio book skips large chunks at random. For example where are the last 6 pages of chapter 50. This is just one example but the story seems to randomly skip at times, and the few times I went back to the actual book to figure out why its because large chunks of text had been omitted


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katai. I love Katai's outlook on the world


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Kate is always a great narrator and this is up to her usual standard.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I LOVE this book.The audiobook however is broken.


    Any additional comments?

    Please fix this audiobook, because this great story deserves a great audio book.

    "really great but missing part"
    Any additional comments?

    Kate Reading's performance and the story is great. I did have to buy the e-book to finish chapter 50 though because, like another reviewer mentioned, it was cut-off by about half a chapter - which was very disappointing
