This book was an excellent conclusion to the series. It's so good to see an author stick to his guns and tie up a series on time! He's left enough room for future books in the series. Looking forward to seeing some new books in the next few years; however, I'm also really looking forward to Jim's new SciFi series :) If you're a fan of the series this book will not disappoint!

Jim Butcher has brought this series to a wonderful conclusion. Like Butcher's other series, the main character of Codex Alera, Tavi, is clever and inventive. Half the fun in watching how he solves the problems he is faced with. The other half the fun is that Butcher isn't half bad when it comes to describing battles and handling the timeline while parallel scenes are occurring.
One could complain that the book is predictable, but then I would have to ask, "Where have you been for the last four books? Have you ever read a book by Jim Butcher?" So, If you are bothered by predictability, I'd be very shocked you got to this book.
I do appreciate that this is the end. Not that I wouldn't or couldn't read more, but there is something wonderful about completeness. We all know that epic fantasy can drag on forever, and so when an author has the foresight to pick a good ending point, it's refreshing.
All in all, Codex Alera is a great story.
Kate Reading has done a wonderful job reading the series, and her performance has done much to enhance my enjoyment of it.
