Publisher's Summary

For centuries, the people of Alera have relied on the power of the furies to protect them from outside invaders. But the gravest threat might be closer than they think.
Tavi has escaped the Calderon Valley and the mysterious attack of the Marat on his homeland. But he is far from safe, as trying to keep up the illusion of being a student while secretly training as one of the First Lord's spies is a dangerous game. And he has not yet learned to use the furies, making him especially vulnerable.
When the attack comes it's on two fronts. A sudden strike threatens the First Lord's life and threatens to plunge the land into civil war. While in the Calderon Valley, the threat faced from the Marat is dwarfed by an ancient menace. And Tavi must learn to harness the furies if he has any chance of fighting the greatest threat Alera has ever known....

Narration Problems

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's a good story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Academ's Fury?

The battle to protect the High Lord.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The use of American pronunciation for basic English words was irritating beyond belief. There were many instances but, missile, fragile and lever will serve as examples.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No.

Any additional comments?

The editing was poor. The sound quality altered dramatically every time a word or sentence was spliced into the narrative which broke concentration and spoiled an otherwise good book.

good story... BUT

Why the annoying "trumpet blasts" in the story? please take them out... they serve absolutely no purpose!

It's Finally Here

I'm so glad this series is finally available as an audiobook.

Huge fan of the books and the narrator has done the series justice.
One weird thing though, every now and then a horn will play during the narration.

Other than that it's amazing.

Excellent!

Issues with audio but it doesn't detract from the story. Excellent book and a mature fantasy book!
