Beschreibung

For 1000 years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water and metal. But now, Gaius Sextus, First Lord of Alera, grows old and lacks an heir. Ambitious Lords manoeuvre to place their Houses in positions of power, and a war of succession looms on the horizon.
Far from city politics in the Calderon Valley, young Tavi struggles with his lack of fury crafting. At 15, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps. Yet as the Alerans' most savage enemy - the Marat - return to the Valley, his world will change.
Caught in a storm of deadly wind furies, Tavi saves the life of a runaway slave. But Amara is actually a spy, seeking intelligence on possible Marat traitors to the Crown. And when the Valley erupts into chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Amara will find Tavi invaluable. His talents will outweigh any fury-born power - and could even turn the tides of war.

Hilfreichste

Longwinded, dumb characters, cliché plot

Wow - a Jim Butcher novel and a series of which several books made it into the top ten.
But this first book of the series is simply appalling!
Way too many "convenient" story elements - "convenient" regarding lazy plot development, improbable timing, inconsistent fury powers / power usage and cliché character and plot development.
I simply felt INSULTED intellectually for about 80% of the audio book.
The basic ideas for the world that Jim Butcher builds here is unique and interesting - but the resulting first book of this series is simply horrible - and that with this book being written at roughly the same time as some of his most successful and intelligent other book from the Dresden series... I really don't get it why the resulting books are so very different in quality.
