Publisher's Summary

For 1000 years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water and metal. But now, Gaius Sextus, First Lord of Alera, grows old and lacks an heir. Ambitious Lords manoeuvre to place their Houses in positions of power, and a war of succession looms on the horizon.
Far from city politics in the Calderon Valley, young Tavi struggles with his lack of fury crafting. At 15, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps. Yet as the Alerans' most savage enemy - the Marat - return to the Valley, his world will change.
Caught in a storm of deadly wind furies, Tavi saves the life of a runaway slave. But Amara is actually a spy, seeking intelligence on possible Marat traitors to the Crown. And when the Valley erupts into chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Amara will find Tavi invaluable. His talents will outweigh any fury-born power - and could even turn the tides of war.

badly edited but good story

the recording seems like its cut badly in places and seems like it skips but you can figure it out. great first book in the series though, I am looking forward to the rest. I see some similarities between GoT and WoT but it's different enough to keep you interested

Highly enjoyable

I've have done almost no work since downloading this audio book as I could not stop listening. Highly enjoyable and very well read with characterisation of the dialogue. If you enjoy fantasy I definitely recommend this audio book.
