  1. The cover is perfect! I have been ready to change
    my wallpaper. I my copy already ordered.

  2. looking forward to the book. Ordered it months ago! Will re-read the series between now and then to make sure I have all the pertinent information.
    Why is his sheath on his right hip?

  3. The Gladius was worn on the right hip, since it was so short it was easier to draw like a knife rather than a longer blade.
    My source is fairly plausible but lacks confirmation.

  4. My understanding (vague as it is) is that only Centurions wore their gladius on the left, the scutum (shield) interfered with a legionarre drawing from left to right. Since a Centurion fought ahead or behind the front rankers, they wore the gladius on the left (it eventually became an identifier)… Tavi as a Legate or General would have worn his sword on the right…

  5. Good lordy. Are you really going to pick apart the cover art? For pity sake just read the book and enjoy it! 🙂

  6. Does anyone else wish they could see the rest of the cast besides just “Tavi”? I know Dresden just came out with a graphic novel think there will be a Codex of Alera grafic novel or maybe even a video game?

  7. I just took a closer look at the cover and did anyone else notice that there are no Vord or Canin on the cover. It looks like its Aleran vs Aleran. One other thing, why is her wearing sandles and not legion boots? Seems like a bad idea to be walking around fire with sandles on.

  8. I just read the codex Alera this week for the first time. What a ride! I have been following the Dresden files for awhile and decided to give it a try. For the last five days my family hasn’t been very happy with me but I just couldn’t put them down 🙂 I now have the First Lord wallpaper and Have pre-ordered the book and and in the midst of a serious case of withdraw someone help me please!!!!!!!! Seriously Jim Butcher has be one of the best authors out their. The Wheel of Time has been dethroned.

  9. I just read the series and can’t wait for the next book to come out… It is plausable that the artist just wanted to be able to show the sheath… And as for the vord and the cane, they probalbly left them out of the cover art so as not to ruin anyones imagiation of what they look like and the alreans in the cover could be taken or part of the first alrean legion who knows… Just can’t wait to read the book

  10. ‘my understanding”vague as it is”‘ good god people!
    anyway, can’t wait for the book because no matter what side the sheath is on in the picture the story will be, as always a brillant piece of FANTASY. write faster Jim.

  11. Awesome series!!!!! I’m eagerly waiting for both books, Codex Alera Bk 6 and Dresden’s book 11.
    I hate to see Codex Alera series coming to end, hopefuly JB will be writing some new exciting series.
    When will chapter 1 be posted for Codex Alera bk 6. I check qd for a pick of Tavi and friends.

  12. for of those wondering about the sheath being on the right hip heres the answer…. if it was on the left hip it would interfere with the shield

  13. No way, to think it will be the last book!!
    An awesome series like that!

  14. isn’t that sheath on his right hip the sheath for his short sword? doesn’t he wear a regular sword on his right and a short on his left?

  15. For the Romans, the gladius was worn on the right hip and the spatha was worn on the left. Everyone did it the same as all soldiers were trained the same.
    I kind of like that the artist paid attention (or was directed on) to this little detail. Some of us are nuts about that sort of thing. 🙂

  16. Noooo! This can not be the last in the series! I demand more! HAHA Not sure how this series could go on without Tavi, but maybe something in the same universe at least?

  17. Mr. Butcher
    I am sad to see your ending the series. I really enjoyed these books and hope you do more with them and expand on this universe.
    Thanks for the great books,
    Michael

  18. @ Ed
    This series in no way comes close to dethroning WoT
    The series is very enjoyable, even though its a bit short.

  19. Jimmy,
    How can you possibly wrap it up with only one book?? You still have to deal with the Icemen, the Vord, the Aquitaines and the plotters who killed Sept. But then again guess that will leave more time for Dresden??
