Furies of Calderon (Codex Alera, Book 1)

Furies of Calderon - Jim Butcher An interesting foray into fantasy by the author of the Dresden Files. Like the better known series, this book is a little dark, but it's not totally, unremittingly dark. I'm quite impressed with the power structure depicted in the book - it's elemental magic, but with an interesting twist. Though it's the first volume of a six volume series, this story can be read as a stand-alone with a satisfying ending.
