The power-hungry High Lord of Kalare has launched a rebellion against the aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus, who with the loyal forces of Alera must fight beside the unlikeliest of allies-the equally contentious High Lord of Aquitaine.

Meanwhile, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name even as the ruthless Kalare unites with the Canim, bestial enemies of the realm whose vast numbers spell certain doom for Alera. When treachery from within destroys the army's command structure, Tavi finds himself leading an inexperienced, poorly equipped legion-the only force standing between the Canim horde and the war-torn realm.

The power-hungry High Lord of Kalare has launched a merciless rebellion against the aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus. Caught off guard by the sheer power of Kalare's attack, Gaius and the loyal forces of Alera must fight for the survival of the realm beside the unlikeliest of allies - the equally contentious High Lord of Aquitaine.
Countess Amara, Cursor to the First Lord, is tasked with the desperate rescue of valuable noble hostages taken by Kalare. The survival of the realm may hinge on the success of her mission. But is her ally, Lady Aquitaine, sincere in her efforts to assist - or will she betray the young Cursor and the First Lord she serves?
Sent away from the fires of war by the protective First Lord, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name. Then the ruthless Kalare does the unthinkable: He unites with the Canim, bestial enemies of the realm whose vast numbers spell certain doom for Alera. When treachery from within destroys the army's command structure, the young Cursor finds himself leading an inexperienced, poorly equipped legion - the only force standing between the Canim horde and the war-torn realm.

This third book in the Codex Alera series is so far the best. The plot lines are more intricately and unexpectedly weaved together and the characters are growing and maturing in interesting ways. This novel comes closer to the level of George R.R. Martin's series, "A Song of Ice and Fire."

In my opinion the best of the series. All of the books rate 4+ on my scale but this one is a solid 5/5. Fantastic read - could not put it down.
