    It came out today. :awesome

    I haven't had a chance to get it yet, as I'm at work, but I can't wait until 6. <_<

    If you want to talk about the book, talk about it here, and please use spoiler tags. (spoiler)(/spoiler) Exchange the parentheses for the normal brackets and you're golden.

    If you don't, I'll kill you. :)

    First of all, the two thoughts that were most on my mind during and after reading.
    1. Tavi/Vord Queen. Someone will write it eventually.
    2. Tavi/Alera. It would greatly amuse me to see this written.

    That said, it's my belief that Gaius' trick where he turned his skin into steel was the manifestation of his metal fury. Any thoughts on this?

    I also found it quite interesting the level of development given to the Cane society, even though it's essentially destroyed in this book. I'm somewhat curious as to whether there will end up being a Cane colony in Alera, or if the alliance between the two will return and clear out Canea. This second seems most probably to me, since they have to do something about the queen they left behind eventually, but it might be impractical, given the amount of time it would allow for her to increase the numbers of the Vord.

    Also, the revelation that Lord Aquitaine was a friend of Septimus blew my mind. I'm very interested in seeing Invidia Aquitaine encounter him, since they are now definitely on opposing sides.

    That, and I think that Isana has gotten ridiculously powerful. Stopping a concerted firecrafting attack from a High Lord by herself, on unfamiliar ground, with her first attempt at using snow as a medium for watercraft? I think she's slipping a bit to the Mary-Sue side.

    Thank you for making this thread. It reminded me and I went out and got it as soon as I could.

    I'll probably start reading it tomorrow, if I start tonight I might not sleep.

    Damn you guys.. Damn you guys to HELL. Twelve Book stores. TWELVE.

    None of them have it (three of them didn't even have it on the system and hadn't even heard of the author -.-").

    Placed an order at the local Borders.. next Monday at the absolute earliest. Unless of course someone here is from Melbourne, Australia and knows where I can grab a copy?

    My local Borders had it on the first shelf you saw when you walked through the front door. A big sign with "New Releases" and Princep's Fury sitting right there, looking all sexy and shit.

    I finished reading mine about an hour ago.

    I'm a bit...meh, about the characterization of several characters, and agree the Isana is close to Mary Sue-ville
    Not being instakilled by a High Lord, having another come to her for help, smacking both a High Lord and Lady without consequences to start with.
    The new information about the Vord, and the scenes about them were interesting,
    and I agree that Tavi/Vord Queen must be done.
    I'm currently wondering how Alera is going to defeat the Vord without, say, a Deus Ex Machina though.

    This. Except it was like three bookstores, all of them in my town, and every one of them had the first three books.

    Is anyone aware of any Alera fanfiction? I haven't seen a category for it on FFnet.

    Didn't mind it as much. There was too much of a gap in power between her and say Aria or Invidia and as First Lady, she needed to be stronger.
