Furies of Calderon: Book One of the Codex Alera

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jim Butcher

Narrated By: Kate Reading

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: November 2008

Duration: 19 hours 55 minutes

Summary:

In this extraordinary fantasy epic, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files leads readers into a world where the fate of the realm rests on the shoulders of a boy with no power to call his own...
 
For a thousand years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive and threatening races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies—elementals of earth, air, fire, water, wood, and metal. But in the remote Calderon Valley, the boy Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. At fifteen, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps. Yet as the Alerans’ most savage enemy—the Marat horde—return to the Valley, Tavi’s courage and resourcefulness will be a power greater than any fury, one that could turn the tides of war...

    I enjoyed the book greatly. I have not read anything related to the Furies and would've enjoyed a brief explanation of the bases of them but have no complaints. Truly looking forward to next the next book

    Worth every second. one of the best fantasy series openers I've enjoyed.

  • Judy Cannioti

    Love Jim Butcher and Kate Reading does the book justice. At some point, I forgot it was one reader and just recognized the character's voices.

    i am reviewing after having finished the whole series. this first book seems a little slow to get going, as it seems to skip between several characters and settings, but like a glorious tapestry these individual threads come together to weave a world that my imagination completely immersed itself in by books end. i love kate reading's interpretations of the characters and how each one has a distinct voice, so much that even if there's no written indication i could discern who was speaking through the narrators interpretation.
