So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Cursor’s Fury by Jim Butcher

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Can’t imagine what took me so long to start on Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series. I guess I never figured I’d really enjoy epic fantasy, but I figured wrong. These books just keep getting better. Butcher’s writing gets stronger and stronger, just as it does during the Dresden Files series, and the characters become more engaging and interesting as the stories progress. 

Due to the scope of this tale, I’m not going to try to go into very much detail in this review, but I will say that Tavi is turning into a hero for the ages, and his journey is amazing. Amara and Bernard are a couple to reckon with, and there are villains both evil and complicated to stir up trouble in every book. Some very interesting clues have been laid out like a trail of breadcrumbs, and I find myself thinking ahead to what they all mean. I’ve been right at times, and surprised at others, and I’m eager to read the last three books and see the whole back story unraveled before me.

If you’ve never tried epic fantasy before, this could be a good place to start. If you are already a fan of the genre, but haven’t read the Codex Alera books, you should check them out. They are fast paced, full of adventure, and a lot of fun. And oh, yeah…there’s a bit of love thrown in for good measure. I highly recommend these books, and this third of the series is the best so far.

    • Well, as everyone in my immediate vicinity surely knows by now, Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files is my favorite urban fantasy series, ever, and I think he’s absolutely brilliant. I don’t know what took me so long to check out the Codex Alera series, except for some ridiculous theory that I wouldn’t like fantasy as much as urban fantasy. And I might NOT, where other fantasies are concerned. But this one is just perfect! I love everything about it, pretty much. You should give it a go, as soon as you can. 🙂
