For centuries, the people of Alera have relied on the power of the furies to protect them from outside invaders. But the gravest threat might be closer than they think.
Tavi has escaped the Calderon Valley and the mysterious attack of the Marat on his homeland. But he is far from safe, as trying to keep up the illusion of being a student while secretly training as one of the First Lord's spies is a dangerous game. And he has not yet learned to use the furies, making him especially vulnerable.
When the attack comes it's on two fronts. A sudden strike threatens the First Lord's life and threatens to plunge the land into civil war. While in the Calderon Valley, the threat faced from the Marat is dwarfed by an ancient menace. And Tavi must learn to harness the furies if he has any chance of fighting the greatest threat Alera has ever known....

I'm so glad this series is finally available as an audiobook.
Huge fan of the books and the narrator has done the series justice.
One weird thing though, every now and then a horn will play during the narration.
Other than that it's amazing.
"Huge chunks missing from Audio book"
Actually include the whole book.The audio book skips large chunks at random. For example where are the last 6 pages of chapter 50. This is just one example but the story seems to randomly skip at times, and the few times I went back to the actual book to figure out why its because large chunks of text had been omitted
Katai. I love Katai's outlook on the world
Kate is always a great narrator and this is up to her usual standard.
I LOVE this book.The audiobook however is broken.
Please fix this audiobook, because this great story deserves a great audio book.
Cracking series from Jim Butcher. Well read although not sure about the blare of trumpets every so often.
"A boy grows up"
in the top 10%
Because of the subject matter I feel it stands on its on but closest like it is the Dresden files for obvious reasons
very much so
