Review of Academ's Fury Book Two: By Jim Butcher

Book Blurb:

For one thousand years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive and threatening races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the Furies--elementals of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Metal. 

But now, the unity of the Alerians hangs in precarious balance. The First Lord of Alera has fallen in his efforts to protect his people from the vicious attacks of their enemies. 

Now, the fate of the Alerians lies in the hands of Tavi, a young man who must use all of his courage and resourcefulness to save his people--and himself.

My review: 

This is the second book in the Codex Alexa series.

After two years at the academy training to become a cursor, through the grueling studies,his duties to the First Lord Gauis, and his attempts to avoid confrontation with some trouble making fellow academs we find Tavi.

The kingdom is in great peril not only from possible civil war but also from an evil alien attempting to devour and destroy the entire kingdom.

Tavi realizes he has feelings for Kitai the Marat girl whose life he saved. Tavi discovers she has been hiding in the city watching him and that she has come to warn him of the evil being who has come to the city seeking to find and kill him.

With Kitai and his friends they face peril and death in their attempt to protect the First Lord and Alera.

Little does Tavi know at the same time in his home of Calderon Valley his  uncle Bernard has sent his Aunt Isana to the capital to warn the First Lord of the danger they are facing.

Men,women,children and livestock have vanished from steadholts with no sign of struggles.

Espionage,politics,danger,intrigue,blood& gore.
What more could you ask for. I enjoyed this book. I give it 4 croaks.
