"Mage-Guard" measures up well to Modesitt at his best. "Booklist" Fans of Modesitt's Recluce books will likely love this latest addition to the series ..Rahl is a well-crafted protagonist with believable reactions to the world around him, and the high level of ordinary detail describing Hamor and Recluce never gets in the way of the story. "Romantic Times BOOKreviews" The sequel to "Natural Ordermage" explores a new part of Modesitt's world and once again displays the author's abilities to tell stories that shine with the veracity of everyday life as well as momentous events.

Modessit is plainly tired of the series. The preceding three books have all been pot-boilers, and the standard is dropping with each of them. In "Natural Ordermage", the standard theme of an exiled mage from Recluce was trotted out yet again; then the theme of the exile in a strange land; then the "mage has lost his memory" from "Towers of the Sunset"... it all felt like Modessit by numbers. But this volume is worse. It's *boring*. I can't care much about the "hero", the resolution with the heroine feels forced and unnatural... it just wasn't worth my time.
I felt really disappointed by this one. Avoid.
