Alera Series by Jim Butcher

Alera series
Just discovered the Alera series written by Jim Butcher (http://www.jim-butcher.com/). If you like adventure and epic battles in your fanstasy stories, then this is a gold mine for you. Not much of a romance in it, no sex and good for children. Wholesome fantasy book. In amazon, the Alera series is at - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/series/92967/ref=rcx_ser_ed_0.
The only thing I find annoying about it is that it keeps two or three different story threads and jumps from one thread to another. By the time the story returns to the other thread, I've forgotten the story of that thread already. So I cheat. I follow one thread all the way through until just before the epilogue. Then read a second thread and so on. After I've read all the threads in the story, I read the epilogue. I don't think that is the way the author intended the book to be read but for me, it is less annoying that way.
