Reprint.
This epic fantasy of political and military intrigue is the first entry in the Codex Alera. The series is set in Alera, a country partially modeled on ancient Rome, except that most people are furycrafters, able to use magic to call upon one of the natural elements (earth, air, water, fire, and metal). Amara is on her first mission as a spy for Alera's ruler. Posing as a slave, she has infiltrated a Legion encampment in order to determine whether the Legion is part of a coup attempt. Unfortunately, she is betrayed and caught. Believing that Amara is, in fact, a runaway slave, a young man comes to her aid: Tavi, who is unique because he cannot furycraft.
