Synopsis (via Goodreads)
The concluding book in the thrilling New York Times bestselling series.

For years he has endured the endless trials and triumphs of a man whose skill and power could not be restrained. Battling ancient enemies, forging new alliances, and confronting the corruption within his own land, Gaius Octavian became a legendary man of war-and the rightful First Lord of Alera.

But now, the savage Vord are on the march, and Gaius must lead his legions to the Calderon Valley to stand against them-using all of his intelligence, ingenuity, and furycraft to save their world from eternal darkness.

Scoot’s Review:
I can only think of one thing wrong with this book; that it ended! Tavi continues battling for his life and all of Alera against the seemingly unstoppable Vord.  Full of action and heart-rending moments First Lord’s Fury is a brilliant conclusion to Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series. This is a series that builds upon itself, so there is not a lot I can say plot-wise about this book without spoiling the other five, but I will just say that if you haven’t read Furies of Calderon (the first book in the series) yet, you should!  The story pacing is excellent; with an equal blend of heroic battles, natural romance, fantastical elements, clever wit, and mystery.  Needless to say I was sad to see the story end, but was happy with the conclusion. *crossingfingersformorebookstocome*
