A martial arts enthusiast whose resume includes a long list of skills rendered obsolete at least two hundred years ago, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher turned to writing as a career because anything else probably would have driven him insane. He lives mostly inside his own head so that he can write down the conversation of his imaginary friends, but his head can generally be found in Independence, Missouri. Jim is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera novels, and the Cinder Spires series, which began with The Aeronaut's Windlass.
"Sharp tactical plotting, hazardous cross-country travel and a dash of sardonic humor mark Butcher's fourth Codex Alera novel...Butcher deftly deploys intrigue, conflicted loyalties and hairbreadth action to excellent effect. Few writers balance military realism and cinematic swashbuckling with so much skill or wit."--Publishers Weekly "The fourth Codex Alera novel further develops the world and characters of its predecessors and confirms Butcher's mastery of action-filled fiction."--Booklist "I couldn't put this one down...Great work."--SF Revu "Readers are transported to a distant world that feels like a cross between Ancient Rome and Ancient Britain in this complex tale of war and personal growth...Mr. Butcher demonstrates his versatile talent that never fails to engage his audience."--Huntress Reviews ?Few writers balance military realism and cinematic swashbuckling with so much skill or wit.? ?"PUBLISHERS WEEKLY" ?Confirms Butcher's mastery of action-filled fiction.? ?"BOOKLIST" ?I couldn?t put this one down?Great work.? ?"SF REVU" ?A cleverly constructed world.? ?"CHRONICLE" ?Jim Butcher is a brilliant world-builder.? ?"MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW" Few writers balance military realism and cinematic swashbuckling with so much skill or wit.
