Goodreads Book Review - First Lord's Fury

First Lord's Fury (Codex Alera, #6)First Lord's Fury by Jim Butcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's amazing how much I came to enjoy this series and thrill at the events of this final installment given how underwhelmed I was by the first nook in the series. I suppose it's a testament to both Butcher's growth as a writer between point A and point B and his ability to grow a world and characters into people and things readers care about and are fully vested in. The only complaint I have about this book, because I surely have none about the action or characters, is that the plot didn't unfold the way I wanted it to; that's a selfish criticism, however, and has no bearing on the talent and skill with which the book was written. I went from unsure I wanted to continue with the series after reading the first one to wishing there was more to come after reading this one. If that doesn't say something about the writer and his work, I don't know what will.
