What if everyone in your world had magical abilities except you? In Alera, where even lighting a lamp requires magic, Tavi is in just such a situation. When the realm falls under attack he has only his mind to help save himself, his family, and the whole of Alera.

Furies of Calderon follows several characters through the web of conflict that threatens their lives. The story can seem slow and overwhelming at the beginning due to the complexity of the world and situations, but is very engaging in the long run. It contains graphic violence, and sexual scenes focused on the characters feelings of “hot need.”

Parents should be aware that the level of sexual content is inappropriate for young readers. A parent wishing to black out the sexual content in this book could do so without marring the story.

Readers who enjoy a romping good Sword & Sorcery - Epic Fantasy will likely enjoy this book so long as they can get through the overwhelming nature of the first quarter.
