Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera #1)

Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera #1) - Jim Butcher The author's attention seemed to be focusing too much on the action sequence and little on anything else in Furies of Calderon. Nothing spectacular could be seen in term of character development and world building, making it difficult for readers to be emotionally invested in the story. It was indeed a tedious, exhausting read and Butcher's attempt to make this book sounds "epic" by using overly verbose prose didn't really help - at all. Disappointing.
