Academ's Fury is the second book in the Codex Alera series written by Jim Butcher.

And what really sets this book apart is Jim's “magic system” which, without giving too much away, involves elementals bonding with humans and working with them. This sets a base for some really amazing action sequences, including well planned sieges and defenses that are rarely done well in novels.

To top this all off the characters have been given interesting personalities, and you will find yourself wanting to discover what happens to each one as the story progresses.

All in all, this is a book in a series that is un-put-downable, with plots twists and engaging language that will keep your eyes glued to the page.


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 …
