Goodreads Book Review - Captain's Fury

Captain's Fury (Codex Alera, #4)Captain's Fury by Jim Butcher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was pretty damn riveting. As the revelations about Tavi are revealed, not to the readers but finally to himself and to those around him, there are some pretty thrilling moments. And they are moments that feel completely earned through the journeys the characters have gone through. Butcher writes such realistic, vibrant characters that it is very easy to identify with and support them... or to feel completely betrayed and disgusted by one of them, as happens with one of the characters here; I'll avoid saying who for the sake of spoilers. The action scenes are good as well, but it's the plotting and characters that are, as with the Dresden Files, Butcher's greatest strengths. I'm still disappointed at the real lack of diversity between the furies and what can be done with them, but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't hurt the series at all. I'm looking forward to diving into the next one soon.
