- Perhaps this is what love is—not violent swells of desire, not reams of passionate poetry written by feverish minds late into the night, but this: to see the other's discomfort and distress and ache for them ...

Really well done! Maximus Antillar is a great character and you've captured him well and have done an excellent job explaining him throughout the series! Wonderful work! Thanks a lot for writing this!

I love it! The Codex Alera is one of my all time favorite book series! I wish Jim Butcher would continue the universe. This is the perfect explanation of Maximus. Completely beautiful.
