      Romans and Pokemon.That was my initial reaction when I heard of Codex Alera s concept and I am sure your face looks like this as well don t deny it fellow readers,it s a normal reaction.And to answer your next question,NO it was not lame and weird,YES it was a brilliant,brilliant high fantasy book.You re intrigued,aren t you The storyAlera is an empire similar to Rome regarding the social layers,the administration and the army,founded by the descendants and the camp followers of the Lost Roman L [...]

      2.5 5 StarsFuries of Calderon is a good beginning to a series but honestly, I m quite disappointed with it.I ve heard a lot of great things about Butcher s books, and although he s most famous for his Dresden Files series, all the things I heard about that series didn t spark my interest in it However, Codex Alera is a different matter the combination of two totally different concepts that I loved Roman and Pokemon In a high fantasy book Now THAT is something that sparked my interest I ve had th [...]

      I don t really read a lot of high fantasy In fact, I m not even sure what makes something high fantasy I have my ideas, thoughI ve been reading Butcher s urban fantasy series, Dresden Files for a long time now, but I ve avoided reading his Codex Alera stuff because it sounded too weird for me Even the name Codex Alera is just Ehhhhh Seemed like there would be too much funky Lord of the Ringsy world building for a fantasy lite reader like myself Some of us don t do well with that sort of thing, y [...]

      Most of the people know the background of this series For the rest of you I will tell it again Jim Butcher made a bet he could write a fantasy book s based on Roman legions and Pokemon.This is the result You have a society somewhat resembling that of Ancient Rome with its military being almost exact copy of Roman legions Magic also exists and comes in the form of Furies glorified Pokemon Some of them are related to wind, some to wood, some to fire, etc This is not Harry Dresden series A young bo [...]

    5. Carly on said:

      Edit The original review discussed Codex Alera s rather entertaining origin story, which involved a flamewar, a bet, Pokemon, and the Roman legions Because this is author behavior that is not discussed in the book, it may not be in line with the impressively subjective new policies of GR.I don t want to break these shiny new rules, so I am deleting most of the fun parts of this review.My original review is posted over at booklikes you can take a look at it there, if you want Sorry about the adde [...]

    6. Kaila on said:

      I admit that I made a huge mistake by reading this novel before any of The Dresden Files At the time I was shuffling through my Kindle library and I had just finished one or two urban fantasy novels I was not in the mood for another one, so I thought, Hey How about The Furies of Calderon Oh poor, unwitting me You had such good intentions.My first problem with this book is where the premise came from Although I could not find any definite evidence, the rumor is that Butcher was bet he couldn t ma [...]

      Read from December 26, 2015 to January 03, 2016This review is for the whole series spoiler free First of all, I would like to say that reading some other reviews, you will get the impression that the story has Pokemons, or at least something similar That s kinda bullshit It has nothing to do with either them, or anything resembling them.Codex Alera is a nice fantasy story, taking place in Alera, a realm strongly resembling the Roman Empire The magic system is the best i have encounter, save perh [...]

      Actual rating 4 StarsBack in the late 90s, maybe early 2000s don t feel like looking the exact date up , Jim Butcher made a bet with some stranger on an online forum that he could make any 2 ideas into a good book That man chose the Lost Roman Legion and Pok mon This is the result of that bet.Now that we have a bit of the backstory on why it was created, let s talk about the result The story follows 4 POVs Tavi, Fidelias, Amara, and Isana Furycrafting is basically the name of the magic system Fu [...]

      1.99 on , go grab your copy Furies CalderoI became a fan of Jim Butcher after reading book 3 in The Dresden Files series, it was a superb book Codex Alera is totally different than the Dresden series, and Furies of Calderon proved for once and for all that the author is much important than THE great idea if you don t know what I m talking about this book was conceived as a result of a bet While Butcher was trying to prove his point that the author has a greater role in writing a good book than [...]

    10. Mike Malaspina on said:

      Furies of Calderon is your typical fantasy epic Swords, sorcery, world turning upheaval, the blackest of evil and noblest of good Only, the true hero of the story is not only powerless Because that s been done before No, the true hero is now only powerless, he s the ONLY powerless character Even the other lowly farm hands can command boulders to simply pull themselves out of crop fields.The savage Marat barbarians all have years of fighting experience from birth and great mighty beasts who kill [...]

      2.5 Okay not much to say, because I was mostly bored reading this But let s list things properly,Characters I enjoyed some of them Tavi and Bernard are my favourites I enjoyed Tavi s perspectives, but hated Amara s Felt neutral over Isana and didn t care much for Fidelias, even though I was impressed at the beginning by how cunning he is It didn t last long though The writing The writing is descriptive, which isn t necessarily always bad, but in this case I almost gouged my eyes out It was so dr [...]

    12. Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~ on said:

      Actual Rating 3.5 StarsI was thoroughly entertained reading Furies of Calderon Was it groundbreaking No But it was fun, and I really enjoyed the characters The plot is heavily based in the politics of Alera, so it definitely appeals to me on that level I am interested to continue and see what happens in the rest of the series.If you re looking for an amazing writing styleybe look elsewhere Lots of repetition of phrases and words LOTS So much so that it was distracting to me as the reader to keep [...]

    13. April on said:

      First of all I consider Jim Butcher to be a very talented writer, and I have greatly enjoyed the Dresden Files for a number of years So when reading my complaints, you must also keep in mind that, having read all of the Dresden Files books than once, I had a certain level of expectation that needed to be met They weren t With the exception of a few short scenes in the beginning and in the middle, this first book in the Codex Alera was very, very subpar It s not even all that long and yet readin [...]

    14. Twyla on said:

      I am shocked at how many people actually really liked this novel The pacing was awful, the characters were flat and there were too many often I couldn t tell who was on which side and the lame novice to hero progression of several characters was painfully uncreative The only good parts were parts where the men spoke a little like Dresden Butcher s other major series protagonist The one witch was creepy enough, and the monsters were pretty cool, but that seems to be Butcher s general strong point [...]

    15. ScottHitchcock on said:

      I did this one as an audio book with Kate Reading as the narrator She was excellent as always Much like in Wheel of Time there is a discipline collar similar to the A Dam For whatever reason these get a rise out of me worse than any of the other evil things in books much darker than this or WOT There s just something so wrong about being able to throw a collar around a person s neck and controlling them against their will I liked but didn t love the characters and found Tavi and Isana to both be [...]

      Buddy read with my tbr twin LauraActual rating is 1.5 stars Am so disappointed with this book I really wanted to like it but Alas I ended up hating it But on the bright side, this book broke my record of never giving a book one star.How I felt while reading this bookIt was so boring, am not even kidding Am certain my chemistry textbook would be so much fun than reading this book The whole experience felt like I was stuck in the middle of an ocean, in a rowboat trying to paddle my way to the sho [...]

    17. Kevin Xu on said:

      worst fantasy book ever, too many books like this out in the fantasy genre out there too many tropes so formulaic of a story the first line on the back cover tells the whole plot to the series please stop writing books like these if this was written in the late 70s or the early 80s, then it would have worked a lot better and fresher I only read about 150 pages into the book and stopped

    18. Laura on said:

      BR with my TBR twin TessyActual rating 3.5 stars.An entertaining read Good but not great I loved the concept of furies and liked the characters even though they re not that easily to identify with The battle scenes felt a little bit ok a lot drawn out up to the point when they became boring But still it sets a good premise for future books and the ending made me curious as to what will happen next If you like action and A LOT OF DESCRIPTIVE BATTLE SCENES this book is just right for you.

    19. Stephen on said:

      4.0 stars Great, well developed characters, an excellent magic system and wonderful world building and plot pacing Appears to be the start of a compelling series Will defintely read the next books in the series.

    20. Mpauli on said:

      Entering the Codex Alera series you re introduced to some very familiar tropes, but also to some very new ideas.On the familiar side, there is a coming of age plot for one of the main characters, there is a political power struggle and a lot of action and battle scenes.On the other hand, the society is somewhere between the typical medieval setting and the Roman Empire This is fresh enough for me The most prominent idea would be the furies, elemental creatures that are bound to almost every huma [...]

    21. Warda on said:

      Putting it aside for now I feel bogged down by the amount of fantasy I ve read this month and it s almost spoiling the reading experience for me, though the 100 odd pages I ve read, I thoroughly enjoyed Will pick it up in the near future

    22. Tilly on said:

      Well THAT WAS REALLY REALLY AWESOME I started to read this series, knowing that the author s main inspirations for these books were the old Roman empire and Pok mon That sounds really weird but after hearing this I was very curious about picking up the first volume and I wasn t disappointed.First of all it was not very difficult to get into the story and this is a problem which I have very often with other High Fantasy series, especially in the first novel The plot was very exciting from the beg [...]

    23. Emily on said:

      THIS WAS SO GREAT SUCH a fun epic fantasy Even though this is the first book in a fantasy series, this didn t run into a lot of the problems that foundational books have It never got too info dumpy, I didn t feel lost or confused in the world, and it didn t feel like just a build up to a bigger story with no central conflict of its own.Butcher introduces this world in perfect bite size pieces He doesn t explicitly lay out the rules for you, but you still pick up on them pretty quickly We also ge [...]

    24. Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten* on said:

      2.5 starsMaybe I read this wrong Or maybe Kate Reading wasn t the best choice for audio narrator Or maybe I ve just fallen out of love with Jim Butcher s writing I still need to try the first Cinder Spires book, so I ll hold off on judgment for now Maybe I need to give my paperback copy another shot, sans audio Regardless of the overall problem, I wasn t really feeling this one I loved the concept hence the so much potential shelving but it just felt like it got bogged down in I don t know what [...]

    25. Rob on said:

      Executive Summary A fun but trope heavy fantasy story that combines a Lost Roman Legion with Pokemon Yeah, you read that right.Audio book I ve long heard both good and bad things about Kate Reading I actually got to meet her last year for the A Memory of Light book tour as she and her husband both live near me, but had never listened to a book by her before now.Personally I think she s a really good reader However, she may not be well suited for this book as it has many male characters then agai [...]

      3.5 Stars.A thoroughly entertaining read Furies of Calderon isn t groundbreaking but simply a fun romp with entertaining characters I love the back story to this series Butcher said that even a bad idea can be executed well and ultimately become a bestseller He was dared to turn lost roman legion and Pok mon into something good He did exactly that, and Codex Alera is a bestselling series, so I guess he won that dare.Jim Butcher s books are a great introduction to fantasy for people who don t wan [...]

    27. Jim on said:

      An interesting series from the creator of the Dresden files This is of an epic fantasy with a really interesting magic The characters were well done I especially liked all the different creatures Very interesting world inhabitants with logical politics problems.That said, I had a few problems with the story, especially at the end view spoiler Too many good bad guys seemingly died in the final confrontation then weren t dead at all Cheap shots, IMO If someone falls with a rope around their neck [...]

    28. Tom on said:

      5 stars to an awesome start to a series Not sure how the rest of the series is going to compete with the start of it but I am looking forward to see where it goes Especially since my friend says they get better.Epic fantasy adventure story of Tavi Tavi is a boy born without any furies and is looked upon by many in his realm as a freak In the realm of Alera people have furies which allow then to control earth, water, air, fire metal in some way or another Some are very strong and some not so much [...]

    29. Penny on said:

      A friend of mine has been trying to get me to read this for ages and I m so glad I finally did I loved it A lot of people complain that it s very trope heavy, and I suppose it is, but it didn t bother me in the least There are lots of brilliant ideas that make the tropes feel new and it was just such a fun ride The main characters were fantastic and I felt deeply invested in all of them Although I don t care much for Jim Butcher s Dresden Files, I have to say that I really enjoy his Codex Alera [...]
