In this extraordinary fantasy epic, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files leads readers into a world where the fate of the realm rests on the shoulders of a boy with no power to call his own...
For a 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, wood, and metal. But in the remote Calderon Valley, the boy Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. At fifteen, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps. Yet as the Alerans’ most savage enemy—the Marat horde—return to the Valley, Tavi’s courage and resourcefulness will be a power greater than any fury, one that could turn the tides of war...

Excellent read, may start slow as any series does but once the ball rolls it doesnt stop, had a hard time putting these books away until I finished all 6.

This series has all the elements you need in a epic fantasy series. I didn't want to put these books down! I finished this series in record time and immediately went back to read it AGAIN! The romance in this book is not the center of attention...but there are several romances that draw you in and are peppered throughout the books not too sappy - just perfect! For the first time EVER in any series I found I LOVED ALL THE CHARACTERS....even the villains! This is a MUST READ! for fantasy or romance

Amazing series. I listened to the audio books and finished it in few days and then I replayed some of my favorite chapters again. Its still in my ipod... do not have the heart to delete them all...
