Princeps’ Fury is the 5th out of 6 books in Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series.

I enjoyed this one as much as the previous books. Some of the things I’d anticipated would happen as the series approached the end happened in this book, such as the return of the Vord as an active threat and the death of the First Lord.

This was the shortest book in the series, and I think the next book is the longest. In some ways this one felt like a transition book as the story is clearly working its way toward the final climactic events, but it did tell a complete and interesting segment of the story and didn’t end on a cliff hanger or anything. As always, there was a lot of action and all the viewpoints held my interest.

I’m really looking forward to reading the final book! ( )

The world and character building across this series is pretty darn spiffing. I particularly enjoyed some of the bizarre tactics from this one as well. ( )

The 5th book in this series really keeps the action going. Tavi (now Octavian) and his companions and the Canim voyage back to the Canim homelands, only to find when they arrive that there is a big problem - the Vord got there first. Like the previous books, this is full of action, good characters and a decent plot. ( )

The best book of the series is Book 4, Captain's Fury. This book, Princep's Fury (book 5) is the second best. Book 6 is the third best. It's an excellent series and the audiobooks are outstanding. ( )

Synopsis:


From Wikipedia.com & Me

The book begins with Octavian negotiating with Captain Demos of the trading vessel called the Slive, to book passage for Octavian and his contingent to cross the sea and reach the Canean homeland with Varg. Meanwhile in Alera, Crown cursor Ehren reports to Gaius about the Vord having entered Alera and learnt how to furycraft.[2]

Octavian and the Canean survivors face several storms as they make their way for the Canim continent. Octavian learns more about the Canean civilization, which has several tribes with populations in the millions and also learns the Canim tongue as they prepare to disembark. Amara and Count Bernand are helping improve the defensive structures around Calderon Valley, in anticipation of a future Vord assault. However, they are summoned to an Imperial Council by Gaius Sextus, First Lord of Alera, for an urgent mission against the Vord.

Gaius Sextus informs the Council of the threat of the Vord, which was slowly expanding from the Kalare wasteland. The Vord had overwhelmed four Imperial legions, leaving no survivors and the croach[check spelling] was expanding through Alera at an increasing rate. More than one hundred thousand Aleran freeholders and citizens had been killed in less than a month. Gaius requests all the High Lords of Alera to unite their strength and muster all the legions that they could, so that they could force a big battle against the Vord. Gaius appoints High Lord Aquitaine as the captain of the military campaign. The First Lord also meets Countess Amara and Count Bernard and requests them to go behind the Vord enemy lines on a mission to find out how the Vord are using furycrafting when they had been unable to do so.

Amara and Bernard find out that one of the High Lady's has been taken by the Vord Queen and that Brencis Kalarus is using his father's slave collars on Citizens to make them fight for the Vord. They take out Brencis and without him and his knowledge, the Vord Queen loses the ability to collar any more Citizens.

Tavi formulates a plan to take down a Vord Queen in Cania, thus allowing the surviving Canim to escape to Alera to regroup and plan how to take back their homeland. His plan fails but Kitai and Varg's backup plan works perfectly. Everyone escapes on giant ships sculpted from icebergs.

Isana is sent north to the Shield Wall to broker a piece with the Icemen so the Legions guarding the Wall can march South and bolster those fighting the Vord. She realizes the Icemen are empathetic crafters and that the whole war has been a gigantic misunderstanding. She challenges the Lord of the Legions to Juris Macti to force him to march South. She loses but her standing up to him makes him realize the truth of her position.

The Vord overwhelm the Capital City and Gaius destroys the city and all the surrounding Vord to give the rest of the people a chance to formulate a way to fight back against the Vord.

My Thoughts:

First off, this review is where I start using the Calibre Page AND Word count to get my numbers. So while the paperback actually has close to 700 pages, based on characters per page, it is “only” 350. Which is why I want to include word count, to give a better data estimate between. Ok, enough of the nerdy stats/data talk.

Man, what do I say? I loved this book and this series? Tavi is the best hero and everything a proper Hero should be? This is a book of Ideals triumphing over petty base human'ness even while humanity reels from blow after blow from the Vord? You can almost hear the Capital Letters when ideals are discussed or even just acted out? In short, this is exactly my kind of book.

Self-pitying fools and dunces these characters are not. They have no time or place for pseudo-philosophizing while calling good evil and evil good. They have too much to do to drag the reader down into the cesspit of a self-loathing mind. They don't hate themselves or the world they live in. They love life and it shows in every action they take.

There is no despair.

Farewell, mother Roma.

The shining columns,

The endless roads,

The mighty legions,

The peaceful fields.

Born in fire,

The light in darkness.

Farewell, mother Roma.

Never again will your sons return.

~A poem, inscribed in stone in the ruins of Appia

Good riddance, gluttonous whore! Victory Germania!

~An addendum to the poem, scratched in far cruder letters.
