Furies of Calderon Book Review

Furies of Calderon is Jim Butcher's first fantasy novel, and in my opinion, it is better than his other series the Dresden Files. His writing is so fast-paced that it is hard to put down any of his books, but Furies of Calderon employs likeable characters, and a fun, involved plot, to make it one of the better fantasy series on the market. I find the book so attractive because of the characters. They are fun, exciting, and somewhat real. I mean, besides the magic thing, and possibly all the luck they have, they feel real. I couldn't put it down, and neither could any of my friends or relatives. Buy it on a Friday so you have a couple days to finish it. Definately dont buy it right before midterms...

Other than not having read "The Dresden Files" I have to agree with you. I kinda stumbled across Furies of Calderon at B&N and got hooked. Have you read the other 3 yet?

Yeah I and loved them. I'm counting the days until Princeps Fury comes out. No book has ever made me as happy as Cursor's Fury did... I ran around my house in my underwear for ten minutes hollaring and hooting. Good fun... Have you finished them yet?

LOL Yes I finished them. I haven't really put Captain's Fury down yet. Something about the way Butcher portrays Tavi. He matures through the entire series, and you can see his strength. The way he handles command of the First Aleran is inspiring.
