We all know that the snark and great one liners are liberally sprinkled throughout all of Jim's books, and there are plenty of sources out there for Dresden quotes (Results 1 - 10 of about 105,000 for dresden files quotes via google). But what about Codex Alera quotes? (Results 1 - 10 of about 12,500 for codex alera quotes. via google). I think we need to spread the funny.

I'm sure there are loads in First Lord's Fury, but lets give it another couple of weeks and I'll do a post for just quotes from FLF. For now, comment with your favourite quotes from the first 5 Codex books.

To make them easy to go through, lets steal the format from IMDBs memorable quotes pages.

[book title, page #]
CHARACTER 1:
CHARACTER 2:
(etc)

or

Quote the entire section of text (much more typing, but at times makes more sense).

Page number would be nice, but I know sometimes the books are not readily at hand to reference.

Just in time for the release of First Lord's Fury featuring some of the map art from priscellie's amazing map. Includes art by UK cover artist Lee Gibbons.

I didn't want to use Flexible Squares, but my sources for free layouts were not cooperating by giving me something simple yet nice to use with the banner. I may change the layout itself if I come across one, but the colours and the banner aren't going anywhere.

Thanks to the lovely priscellie, we now have a map of Alera!

Multiple sizes posted here

Personally, I've set it as my background and keep staring at it. It's just so darn pretty.

The map will be in First Lord's Fury, on shelves next week.

In preparation for the release of the final book in the Codex Alera, I've launched the first-ever Codex Alera ficathon! If you're interested in participating (or just want to see the results when they're posted in late October), check out alera_ficathon.

Amazon.com has released cover art for the final book! Click here to see it! Once I get my hands on a higher quality version, I will edit the banner for the comm, and make an icon or two.

My comment on the cover: Tavi's looking very mid-30s or older for someone who wouldn't even be legal to drink in the States. I noticed this with the last cover, but even more so now. Positively middle-aged.

Go forth and squee over the pretty picture. Oh, and jot down November 24th on your calendars as the day you will descend on your local book seller to procure your copy.
