In the first book of the Codex Alera series, barbarians threaten the land, and internal strife abounds because the aging, sickly lord does not possess an heir. Fortunately, Alera can use the water, earth, air, fire, and metal elements to protect the kingdom. Furthermore, the lord enlists Amara, a young female spy, to lurk outside the kingdom and seek out possible enemies. It is under these circumstances that Amara and the sheepherder Tavi meet, commencing an enthralling adventure.

Society based on late Roman/early Mediaval Europe (4th-8th centuries). Excellent use (some original) of elemental magic.

Quite enjoyed this. We were well warned that it was not going to be up to the standards we were used to in the Dresden Files. We listened to it on holidays and sometimes sat in the truck after reaching our destination listening until the CD player timed out. We were very glad to have the second audiobook along with us as we wanted to start that one as soon as we finished this.
