10:28 pm: Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher

This was the bookgroup book for July and only those who had read the rest of the sequels liked it. Apparently this one, and the next five or so, are completely fantasy. Not a bit of SF.

This story starts out in a rural area where the families & households work to stay safe, but have evil people come and take their stuff. The stuff is supposed to go to the important guy, but they need to take it themselves. The Furies belong to certain people and give them power for their Fury name. A lot of the Fury names seem a bit silly, but the world isn't graphic.

The important people from the household try to keep the stuff safe and then the big guy also safe. They find out that one of the big guy's immediate group below him is going to try to kill the big guy and take his place. Then the man who is in charge of the household makes a wonderful winning move and gets to step up to a new place, much too far up, as do others in the household.

It's all fantasy, and I'm not reading the sequels until it turns into SF.

It's magic-treated-like-technology, but still magic for the whole series (and the series is finished, so that won't change).

I've not read any of those, but i am loving the Dresden Files series.
