In First Lord’s Fury both speed and action are ratcheted way past 11 making for an exciting, though somewhat rushed, read. If you haven’t read any of the other books in the series yet then even reading past the blurb of the later books, or glancing at the titles, provides some minor spoilers. Still if you haven’t read other books, or aren’t quite caught up to book six then stop reading now….
First Lord’s Fury picks up almost immediately after Princep’s Fury with Tavi, now Octavian, rushing to the aid of the beleaguered people of Alera who are crumbling under the onslaught of the vord. Along with Tavi are the last surviving Canim under the leadership of Varg. Back in Alera proper Attis Aquitaine has taken the title of First Lord and is leading the people of Alera in a desperate defense where the only real surety seems to be defeat.
Despite being a solid 480 pages First Lord’s Fury feels like a book half that length. At the beginning of the novel Tavi isn’t even in Alera and Butcher really pushes the limits of credulity with the speed at which he manages to converge the geographically disparate POVs towards the final battle. Of course, slow and steady fantasy has never really been Butcher’s strong suit. Indeed, high action is something that Butcher has come close to mastering, and the final battle (say the last 100 plus pages of the novel) is as close a magnum opus as we’re likely to get.
