Product Description


Praise for the Imager Portfolio:

"An exhilarating thriller . . . Stands alone, but is enhanced, by reading the previous two entries especially when the past comes home to roost. The story line is fast-paced while the locales are vivid. . . . A strong tale in which the hero knows he has come a long way, but learns how fast you can go in reverse."
"--The Midwest Book Review" on "Imager's Intrigue

""Examines complicated social issues while managing to hold the reader's attention with a fascinating story."
--"Sacramento"" Book Review" on "Imager's Intrigue

""Consistently "intriguing" in every sense."
--"Kirkus Reviews "on "Imager's Intrigue

""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

""Meticulous world-building.... The world is fascinating, and the Imagers themselves are extraordinary."
--"Romantic Times Book Reviews "on "Imager"

Product Description

In Imager, the first book of the Imager Portfolio, we met Rhennthyl, an apprentice portrait artist whose life was changed by a disastrous fire. But the blaze that took his master’s life and destroyed his livelihood revealed a secret power previously dormant in Rhenn; the power of imaging, the ability to shape matter using thought. With some trouble, he adapts to the controlled life of an imager.

By Imager’s Challenge, Rhenn has become a liaison to the local law forces. He finds himself in direct conflict with both authorities and national politics as he tries to uphold the law and do his best by the people of his home city.

Now, in Imager’s Intrigue, Rhenn has come into his own. He has a wife and a young child, and a solid career as an imager. But he has made more than one enemy during his journey from apprentice painter to master imager, and even his great powers won’t allow him to escape his past.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Modesitt, you can do better than this. 30 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I struggled to keep going with this book. The politics in this instalment are so thick that it takes away from the action. Most of the exciting action in this book is happening somewhere else because of things the main character puts in motion.

I'm now reading the next book which takes place hundreds of years prior to the first three books in the hopes the action I love modestt for will return. If it doesn't I won't be reading the remainder of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modesit's Imager Series 2 Mar 2014
By Parma
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great series. Some have to come from Canada or the US, but the service is always brilliant. It tends to arrive before the set date. Highly recommend getting these back copies at a reduced price while used but in good condition.

3.0 out of 5 stars IMAGER INTRIGUE BOOK 3 5 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel it lacked the impact of books 1/2, perhaps because the story covers to wide
a range of victims, in the previous books he was the victim.
therefore the story was tighter with more action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to the series 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very absorbing story that builds well on the previous series about imagers, providing an insight as to how the Collegium was eventually founded. The lead characters are very believable. The story leads well into Imager's Battalion.
