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.

I know once I start a Jim Butcher book I won't come up for air until it's finished. Although Dresden is probably more in my wheel house I'm loving the Alera series as well. Nothing revolutionary here, it's firmly in the "farmboy finds out he has a Destiny" mold but it's fun, the characters are int...
Currently, the worst part of these books is that I am constantly recommending them at my bookstore, because they seem to be popular. "Hey so I just read Patrick Rothfuss and wow I loved it! What else would you recommend?""Have you heard of The Dresden Files? Well, he also wrote this fantasy series.....
