    Romans and Pokemon.That was my initial reaction when I heard of Codex Alera s concept and I am sure your face looks like this as well don t deny it fellow readers,it s a normal reaction.And to answer your next question,NO it was not lame and weird,YES it was a brilliant,brilliant high fantasy book.You re intrigued,aren t you The story Alera is an empire similar to Rome regarding the social layers,the administration and the army,founded by the descendants and the camp followers of the Lost Ro

    2.5 5 StarsFuries of Calderon is a good beginning to a series but honestly, I m quite disappointed with it.I ve heard a lot of great things about Butcher s books, and although he s most famous for his Dresden Files series, all the things I heard about that series didn t spark my interest in it However, Codex Alera is a different matter the combination of two totally different concepts that I loved Roman and Pokemon In a high fantasy book Now THAT is something that sparked my interest I ve 2.5 5 St

    I don t really read a lot of high fantasy In fact, I m not even sure what makes something high fantasy I have my ideas, thoughI ve been reading Butcher s urban fantasy series, Dresden Files for a long time now, but I ve avoided reading his Codex Alera stuff because it sounded too weird for me Even the name Codex Alera is just Ehhhhh Seemed like there would be too much funky Lord of the Rings y world building for a fantasy lite reader like myself Some of us don t do well with that sort I don t really rea

    Most of the people know the background of this series For the rest of you I will tell it again Jim Butcher made a bet he could write a fantasy book s based on Roman legions and Pokemon.This is the result You have a society somewhat resembling that of Ancient Rome with its military being almost exact copy of Roman legions Magic also exists and comes in the form of Furies glorified Pokemon Some of them are related to wind, some to wood, some to fire, etc This is not Harry Dresden series Most of the people know

    I admit that I made a huge mistake by reading this novel before any of The Dresden Files At the time I was shuffling through my Kindle library and I had just finished one or two urban fantasy novels I was not in the mood for another one, so I thought, Hey How about The Furies of Calderon Oh poor, unwitting me You had such good intentions.My first problem with this book is where the premise came from Although I could not find any definite evidence, the rumor is that Butcher was bet he could I admit that I made a huge mist
