From Publishers Weekly

Jun 06, 2005 – Best known for his Harry Dresden fantasy noir novels (Dead Beat, etc.), bestseller Butcher shows he's equally adept at epic fantasy in the second Codex Alera book. Two years after the events of Furies of Calderon (2004), the First Lord of Alera, Gaius Sextus, struggles to control a realm facing growing border troubles and civil strife as High Lords scheme to advance their own causes. Fortunately, Gaius has loyal supporters such as his nephew Tavi, now a 17-year-old Academ, a student of Alera Imperial's great Academy, who also serves as Gaius's page and is secretly training to become a Cursor, one of the First Lord's elite spies. Then Gaius falls ill, leaving those closest to him, including Tavi, desperate to keep his weakness secret. With Cursors being murdered, an ancient menace known as the "vord" heading for the capital and civil war on the horizon, Tavi has his work cut out for him. Butcher skillfully weaves in the necessary back story without slowing the pace. Solid world-building, intriguing characters and vivid action make this a solid addition to a marvelously entertaining series.

Wonderful read.. Won't let you put it down

Awesomely captivating!

I am an avid science fiction and science fantasy book reader. I hv read all the old masters and it is not often that I find an author with the ability to completely compel me to keep reading. I read so fast that I usually haunt the used book stores as if I really get into a book I can have it read in a few days. Well this story kept me captive on meal breaks and after work and I found it hard to put down. The writing is electric and the communication of concepts captivating. I am completely interested and enjoying the story. I don't often find an author whom I feel so satisfied with that I gladly pay for their stories even though I know that with my speed of reading it won't take long to get through the story, this is one of those authors. I highly recommend this series of books!
