The land of Alera is under outside threat from barbarians, and internal strife abounds because the aging, sickly lord does not have an heir. Fortunately, Alera can use the defenses of the elementals of water, earth, air, fire and metal to protect the kingdom. Furthermore, the lord enlists Amara, a young female spy, to lurk outside the kingdom and seek out possible enemies. It is under these circumstance that Amara and the sheepherder Tavi meet, and become swept up in an enthralling plot.

I'm a huge Dresden fan, so I really wanted to like this! I'm sad to say, I found it completely boring! The story moves between several characters, without really fully committing to get to know any of them very well. The world has enough going on in it that I never quite felt that I understood the "rules" of the universe. And frankly, it lacks the sense of humor and charm of Jim Butcher's other writings. The characters are much more black and white, and I simply didn't find myself concerned for their well-being. I got the book on audiobook, and I didn't find myself interested enough to finish the CDs.
