Product Description

Review

"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. "Library Journal""

As a big fan of L.E.Modesitt I was eagerly awaiting publication of this, the sequel to "Natural Ordermage". While I did enjoy the book it was a little "wordy" in that I feel it could have been truncated to produce a more readable, exciting story. That said I will continue to purchase Mr Modesitt's tales as they do have the power to hold the reader.

The Recluse series has always been one of my favorites but this book is awful, i found myself skipping pages just to get to the end quicker..if you are a Recluse fan i suggest you jump to last book in series "Arms-Commander" & find out what happens to the Angels in Westwind after Nylan left

This is probably the worst entry in the Recluce series so far. The first half is not too bad; and then it becomes endlessly tedious, as the protagonists wander across Hamor. The battle scenes have been done so many times before, and it is frankly very hard to care about the sides involved.

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.

I found this book as good a read as all the books in the series I have collected them all and can hardly wait for the next episode to be written, the story realy sucks you in to it, as long as it is it took me about 4 days to read it from cover to cover, I would strongly encourage other readers of this type of book to read it.

Greatly anticipated latest addition to the recluse series, yet again Modesitt delivers a book of quality. I had to read the book from start to finish as I couldn't put it down. A wonderful story that contains all the ingrediants one can enly expect Modessit to pull together and entrance the reader. He is a prolific writer for which i am extremely grateful! Can't wait for the next installment.

This book is not as good as the previous books in the series.I agree with a previous reviewer in that it's tedious,to say the least.I found it to be one continuous battle scene from start to finish.In saying that i'm still looklng forward to the next book.

Ever wondered about the continent of Hamor in Modesitt's World of Recluce? This is the second of a triology set in that empire. It holds the same high class as his other books, well worth a read.
