But with threats to the First Lord , Tavi's family and the survival of Alera itself emerging on several fronts, that's the least of his problems…

No matter how bad a day I've had I can read a Jim Butcher book secure in the knowledge that his characters will be having a much worse time than me. This one is no exception. Book three is on order :)
