The Aeronaut’s Windlass comes out in paperback from Roc on July 5th—and in celebration, we want to send you a Jim Butcher starter pack!
Five lucky winners will each receive a copy of The Aeronaut’s Windlass, Storm Front, and Furies of Calderon—the first books in the Cinder Spires, the Harry Dresden series, and the Codex Alera series, respectively.
In The Aeronaut’s Windlass, Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy’s shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion—to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory. Even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come.
Storm Front introduced readers to Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name.
In Furies of Calderon, the people of Alera have been united for a thousand years against the aggressive and threatening races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the furies—elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal. But Gaius Sextus, First Lord of Alera, grows old and lacks an heir. Ambitious High Lords plot and maneuver to place their Houses in positions of power, and a war of succession looms on the horizon. Far from city politics in the Calderon Valley, the boy Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. At fifteen, he has no wind fury to help him fly, no fire fury to light his lamps. Yet as the Alerans’ most savage enemy—the Marat—return to the Valley, he will discover that his destiny is much greater than he could ever imagine.
