Book Description

The sequel to the New York Times bestselling Princeps, L.E. Modesitt's Imager's Battalion follows magical hero Quaeryt as he leads history's first Imager fighting force into war. Given the rank of subcommander by his wife's brother, Lord Bhayar, the ruler of Telaryn, Quaeryt joins an invading army into the hostile land of Bovaria, in retaliation for Bovaria's attempted annexation of Telaryn. But Quaeryt has his own agenda in doing Bhayar's bidding: to legitimize Imagers in the hearts and minds of all men, by demonstrating their value as heroes as he leads his battalion into one costly battle after another.

Making matters worse, court intrigues pursue Quaeryt even to the front lines of the conflict, as the Imager's enemies continue to plot against him.

    Product Description


    Modesitt produces some of the best fantasy novels published. His numerous series have devout fans.... I look forward to Quaeryt's continuing adventures. --SFRevu Solidly engrossing. --Kirkus Reviews on Princeps Modesitt's work shines with engrossing characters, terrific plotting, and realistic world-building. --RT Book Reviews on Imager. The Imager Portfolio features some of the best characters Modesitt has ever created, real enough to make you consider what you'd do in their places.--Booklist on Imager's Challenge. Quaeryt is a fascinating character, and his trials and journey are action packed and yet intellectual.--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars, on Scholar Modesitt has only one style: subtle intrigues anchored in vividly drawn, complex characters, stiffly formal conversations and descriptional arabesques in tones of gray. Perhaps the best so far in this consistently fascinating series.--Kirkus, Starred Review, on Scholar Modesitt has drawn a superb portrait of an honest and powerful man handed a crisis that even he may not be able to handle. . . . Extremely satisfying. --Booklist on Imager's Intrigue

    More About the Author

    No matter what anyone claims, writers are made, not born, and what and how they write is the result of just how they were made... or how they made themselves. I began by writing poetry, which was published only in small magazines, and then went on to write administrative reports while I was a U.S. Naval aviator, followed by research papers, speeches, economic and technical studies, and policy and briefing papers. Along the way, I've been a delivery boy; a lifeguard; an unpaid radio disc jockey; a U.S. Navy pilot; a market research analyst; a real estate agent; director of research for a political campaign; legislative assistant and staff director for U.S. Congressmen; Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; a consultant on environmental, regulatory, and communications issues; a college lecturer and writer in residence; and unpaid treasurer of a civic music arts association.

    As a result, my writing tends to incorporate all of the above, in addition to the science fiction I read from a very early age. After close to sixty published novels, and perhaps a score of short stories, it's fairly clear to me that "what kind of writer" I am for readers tends to depend on which of my books each reader has read.

    Along the way, I've weathered eight children, a fondness for three-piece suits [which has deteriorated into a love of vests], a brown Labrador, a white cockapoo, an energetic Shih-tzu, two scheming dachshunds, a capricious spaniel, a crazy Saluki-Aussie, and various assorted pet rodents. Finally, in 1989, to escape nearly twenty years of occupational captivity in Washington, D.C., I escaped to New Hampshire. There I was fortunate enough to find and marry a lovely lyric soprano, and we moved to Cedar City, Utah, in 1993, where she directs the voice and opera program at Southern Utah University and where I attempt to create and manage chaos in the process of writing.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Imager Portfolio 27 April 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is really a review of the whole series, as I've read them all up to this one & intend to read the rest too.

    I keep asking myself, why? Why do I enjoy these books so much? Why am I driven to read them so obsessively at the negation of other excellent books waiting for my attention? Why are Rhenn & Quaeryt so engaging?

    I could say it's because of the excellent writing, but I've read other books just as good if not better. I could say that it's the captivating plots, but sometimes Modesitt' s tendency to use excessive detail can swamp any attempt to use action as a plot mover, (check out Princeps if you don't believe me). I could say it's the action, character building, an eerie ability to capture real conversations or even to be able to give just the right amount of insight into a character's thought processes. Yet I still feel that I would have failed to identify what actually keeps me reading.

    Throughout the series I have been troubled by the casual treatment of death, especially the way both central characters in the series seem able to justify being judge, jury & executioner in countless situations without consulting others or feeling lasting remorse. Quaeryt does seem to struggle with this more than Rhenn, but even he is able to ignore his dubious concerns enough to carry on with the practice.

    And yet I'm still tempted to buy the next instalment & start reading it as soon as possible!


    If you think you know why, then please, please, please tell me! I think I'm doomed to read the whole series anyway but it may help others decide if they want to start or not.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Imager book from Modesitt 22 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Having read the Imager Trilogy previously I was delighted to find this new series which is set in an earlier era and shows how Solidar and the Image Isle came to be established. This is one of 5 books which describe this history with a very powerful imager as the central figure we follow.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Modesitt again 20 Aug. 2014
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Another excellent series from this prolific author although running this sequence to 5 titles is pushing it. Nor is enough explained about the pharsi who essentially take the role of jews

    He just gets better and better.
    You really need to read the other books in the series, but, as they are all excellent, that should not be a problem!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but repetitive 21 April 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have read a lot of Modesitt's book and although I enjoyed most of them they do become repetitive with the action basically the same in each book.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Too much information 24 Feb. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Modesitt has a tendency to pad books with paragraphs, sometimes pages, of unnecessary details about meals and other peripheral matters, so that the story could have been told in about 2/3 of the space with very little loss. If you relish these details, of course, okay. Apart from that, I enjoyed the book, though I skipped a good deal of the waffle.

    I was waiting for this continuing story of the Imager Portfolio to be released and now that it has and I've read it I am not disappointed it was just as good as the others in the Portfolio.
