Believe it or not, the image is highly appropriate. After a crippling attack of Canim magic, Tavi, who was meant only to be a junior officer, found himself Captain of the ill-equipped and untrained Legion. Full Review My recollection was this book was a step down after Captain’s Fury.
Mostly though we get well handled story telling with no BIG predictable moments. I really hutcher Jim Butcher’s style of writing in this and his Dresden series.
The problem is simply that traditional high, epic fantasy and I have lately just not been clicking. We get a sweeping saga of war on a grand scale and what might be called the culmination of events that have been forming matters since before the series started.

His characters ARE real,they bleed,they plot,they make mistakes,they die,they sacrifice themselves while battling with their inner demons. I like Tavi, but I already know that he’s clever. I had to resist the urge to dive immediately into the second book, as I’d already spent a whole day reading.

The earlier series is locked into a first-person narrative, for example, which means the voice of a single character is loud, flaws and all.

In this installment, Tavi is across the sea helping his new allies deal with some problems of their own, while things actually go from bad to catastrophic back home.
Starting this book was like a family reunion, and sure enough, everyone’s there. We learn a lot more about the Alerans, and see that people can be just as petty towards their fellow man under even the most dire of circumstances.

There is a lot of action and the books really don’t slow down. However I find myself changing my mind on this reread. I agree with another reviewer who mentioned the multiple names. This series has large amounts of both. I really find it easy to lose myself in teh stories.
