Publisher's Summary

After bitter fighting, Tavi of Calderon has eventually forged an alliance with Alera's oldest foes, the savage Canim, and he must escort them on their long sea-voyage home. This will strain their fragile accord - but the worst is yet to come.

The inhuman Vord have spent the last three years laying waste to the Canim homeland, making it a desolate place indeed. Then the Alerans become stranded there, cut off from their ships. The Canim alliance will be tested as they enter the killing fields together, depending on each other's strengths if they both are to survive.

For 1000 years, Alera and her furies have withstood every enemy, and survived every foe. The 1000 years are over.

    "This series is getting very 'rinse and repeat'"

    It's just about okay and I'll probably get the last in the series for completeness.

    "Excellent story, let down by the recording"

    Loved the story. The recording has a few missing sections/skips and annoying fanfares which broke up some dramatic scenes. Worth a listen, but part of me regrets not buying it in book form instead.

    Story
    "5 down 1 to go..."

    I suppose the risk of binge listening to a whole series is that the story starts to feel a little bit "samey" compared with previous instalments....it all just sort of blurs into one long battle.

    That said, if I really stop and think objectively about this book #5, there's nothing wrong with it. The story is completely consistent with what has gone before; the plot is developing and the characters are developing. Tavi is just as creative in his solutions as before, and he's growing up too. The Canim add a new dimension to the story too - and the author has tackled their societal interplay with the Aleran's cleverly. Nothing to dislike. Perhaps I'm just experiencing battle fatigue.?

    And....straight onto book #6 (clearly not that fatigued).

    "Pronunciation"

    All good. Kate had a good range of voices. Can cope with accent despite being vaguely American. Pronunciation of legionnaire was really bad though and it crops up alot! Grrrrrr

    "great middle story, leaves me wanting more"

    Excellent story. Maybe not quite as good as Captains Fury but still strong.

    My only complaint is the recording which occasionally seems to glitch and jump small sections of the story. It's a minor thing but slightly spoils the experience.
