    Inhaltsangabe

    For 1000 years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water and metal. But now, Gaius Sextus, First Lord of Alera, grows old and lacks an heir. Ambitious Lords manoeuvre to place their Houses in positions of power, and a war of succession looms on the horizon.

    Far from city politics in the Calderon Valley, young Tavi struggles with his lack of fury crafting. At 15, 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 - return to the Valley, his world will change.

    Caught in a storm of deadly wind furies, Tavi saves the life of a runaway slave. But Amara is actually a spy, seeking intelligence on possible Marat traitors to the Crown. And when the Valley erupts into chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Amara will find Tavi invaluable. His talents will outweigh any fury-born power - and could even turn the tides of war.

    Longwinded, dumb characters, cliché plot

    Wow - a Jim Butcher novel and a series of which several books made it into the top ten.
    But this first book of the series is simply appalling!
    Way too many "convenient" story elements - "convenient" regarding lazy plot development, improbable timing, inconsistent fury powers / power usage and cliché character and plot development.
    I simply felt INSULTED intellectually for about 80% of the audio book.
    The basic ideas for the world that Jim Butcher builds here is unique and interesting - but the resulting first book of this series is simply horrible - and that with this book being written at roughly the same time as some of his most successful and intelligent other book from the Dresden series... I really don't get it why the resulting books are so very different in quality.

    Otherwise good book ends in a mess

    I would have rated the book to four stars most of way through. It is an interesting world, and acceptable character, though I predicted a few clichés would pop up.

    The book fall apart in the end though, when random stuff happens, heros randomly choose not to act, villains teleport around randomly for where they can cause the most tension. Convenient traps appear out of nowhere and heros and villians alike all survive certain death on multiple occasions, often with no explanation or just handwaving . And though truth-finders' ability to establish the truth is a key point in the middle of the book, in the end there is suddenly no way to establish the truth even with the most powerful truthfinder available. Everybody for no reason and in contrast with early just suddenly thinks physical evidence is necessary.

    I am not a fan of the narrator. It took me a few hours before I got used to her voice. It is very stilted like she is performing on stage playing the narrator of a theatre piece instead of just narrating.

    So it has good elements it can build on, it just concludes in a clusterfuck, but I think I will check out the sequel and see where it goes. I have already gotten myself used to the terrible narration anyway.

    Great story and reading; bad record-stiching

    Great story, even more fun to listen than read. Kate did a great job, but there are a lot of artefacts in the recording - sentences overlapping without pause or starting during the last word of the previous one. This should have been edited prior release.

    excellent series

    What a great read. Epic fantasy with no Tolkien leaning. A master of urban fantasy who shows his range in prose with one of the most exciting prelude to a series in absolute ages. If you love epic, high fantasy; more than being satisfied, your entire faith in the form will be revitalised and that old feeling of 'when is the next one out?' will re -emerge- Buy it. Read it. Get the next one. Celebrate and repeat.

    An editing disaster....

    The story is a bit predictable... but ok. Kate Reading does a good job. But publishing such an editing mess is a disgrace. It Sounds like the someone just cut some pieces out and instead of rerecord the missing part just united the two parts with with no (or insufficient) fades...
