it was amazing

Book three in the Codex Alera series surpasses the previous two by miles. Cursor's Fury introduces an Aleran empire still reeling from the destruction of their foes, the Vord. Newly appointed Cursor, Tavi, is put into the legions as Rufus Scipio, a young officer fresh out of the academy and green. He is quickly introduced to a marauding horde of Canim warriors that easily outnumbers his own troops and is forced into the action by the hand of his enemies.

Meanwhile, a rebellion is growing in the southern reaches of Alera, that threatens to tear apart the empire, spawned hand-in-hand with the Canim invaders. It is a race against time to push back the wolf-warriors and quell the rebellion.

Two more characters are introduced in this book in strong supporting roles to Tavi, and previous characters are developed into further detail, breathing more life into this story then the previous two books. Full of action and conflict, the story is sure to leave the reader wondering, "what's next?" or "how will he get out of THIS mess?"
