About the Author
A martial arts enthusiast whose résumé 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.
"Butcher deftly mixes military fantasy and political intrigue in the rollicking third Codex Alera book...Readers will cheer Tavi every step of the way."--Publishers Weekly "The author of the Dresden Files modern fantasy series is equally familiar with old-style, 'classic' fantasy, demonstrating his skill in complex plotting and vivid world crafting to masterly effect."--Library Journal "Plenty of military action and some interesting revelations about Tavi's past make this one of the best volumes yet in this entertaining series."--Locus
