Academ’s Fury is the second book in Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series. Although I enjoyed the first book, I enjoyed this one significantly more. The only reason it took me so long to read was due to time constraints. Whenever I picked it up, I never wanted to put it back down. There’s a lot of action in this book. For me it was the exciting, edge-of-my-seat sort and not the boring, repetitive kind.

After having a rough start with Tavi in the first book, I’m a big fan of him now. I did sometimes get exasperated when a new chapter switched away from Tavi’s POV in the middle of some tense action, because his storyline was the one I was the most interested in. It didn’t take me long to get back into the POV that the new chapter had switched to, though.

I don’t have too many more comments, but the ones I have will need to go in spoiler tags:
The Vord were a great enemy. They aren’t terribly unique maybe; they reminded me of a fantasy version of the Borg. The Borg always worked for me as a creepy enemy though, and the Vord did the same. I also liked it because it ensured this book wasn’t just more of the same from the first book. While it followed and expanded on many of the same plot threads, it also told a different sort of story in a different way and I really enjoyed it. It looks like we haven’t seen the last of them.

I was worried that I was in for a ton of romantic angst between Amara and Bernard. There was more than I wanted, but fortunately not too much time was spent on it.

From the title, Academ’s Fury, I kind of thought Tavi might find and develop fury crafting in this book. He was, after all, obviously the Academ from the title, but I guess the “Fury” part wasn’t that literal. So I’ve revised my interpretation of the titles and am guessing they all refer to Tavi’s position throughout the series. So by the end of it he’ll be, not very surprisingly, the… well, either you know the title to the last book or you don’t, in which case you might not want it spoiled. Assuming I’m even correct, but I’m feeling pretty confident!

The world and character building across this series is pretty darn spiffing. ( )

Academ's Fury turns everything up a level from Furies of Calderon - we have better character development, stronger battle sequences, better-aligned POVs, and a stronger plot. I struggled through the early chapters of this book because of the pacing there (as well as a few throw away sexist comments, which...no) but once it got rolling, I enjoyed it. The world and magic system here are decent and interesting. It's a solid high fantasy novel.

More than anything, I enjoyed Academ's Fury because I really enjoy Kitai's character. Unlike the other women in this series, Kitai is not hampered by a cultural who devalues her because of her gender. She's formidable and skilled and clever and I enjoyed every scene she's in. She's only a side character, too. More's the pity - I'd love to see her as a POV. ( )

I actually enjoyed this more than the first novel. The characters are better developed, and strands of politics are finally being drawn together to lay the foundation for what will hopefully be a complex, integrated rest of the series.

Better than the first book. Since I am listening this time to the audiobooks, having read the entire series several years ago in paperback, it is very interesting to see/hear the foreshadowing the Butcher puts in the story of things to come. Jim Butcher is an excellent writer and storyteller. I have yet to read a single one of his books that did not delight me and fully absorb me. I strongly recommend the Codex Alera series for any who enjoy fantasy novels. There are no dwarves or elves, but there are several very interesting and unique races who interact throughout the entire series. He creates a world and then inhabits it with people that you end up caring about. Well done. ( )
