5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great! The best so far!
L.E. Modesitt's portrayals of the Guild in Fairhaven and the Black Order of Recluce from opposing viewpoints are probably my favorite feature of this series. This book tells an excellent story of a young White that is not out to destroy the blacks and his struggle to stay alive long enough to reach his potential. A great book that I would recommend to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to the Recluse books., 31 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Colors of Chaos (Hardcover)
The Magic Engineer is one of my favorite Recluse books and The Colors of Chaos is in no way a repeat of that book. The events recounted are the same, but obviously told from a different viewpoint. Moreover you see the development motivations and actions of the characters introudced in The White Order not those found in the Magic Engineer.
The author does an excellent job in adding depth to the issues of order and chaos. After reading the book you realize that neither order nor chaos is inhernetly 'good' or 'evil' but both are capable of force and building and desstruction. Ultimately its the people employing order and or chaos and their reasons for doing so that makes all the difference.
I enjoyed the time spent on explaining the motivations of tertiary charcters like traders and perfects even if its through the primary charcters' words. Thumbs up and highly recommended overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modesitt, true to form, 20 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Colors of Chaos (Hardcover)
Well, I have just about every book Modesitt has written. I like his writing style, the pace of his storry and his darker heroes. Generally Modesitt never explicitly states what his characters are doing/feeling (he gives enough detail for us to draw our own conclusions), in all of his other books this was fine. Somehow it was a bit tired in this book. I like this world he's created, I'd like protagonists that didn't just do what the heroes in the other books did, but in a different time/place. I'll buy his next book so I suppose that says it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more interesting than I expected!, 16 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Colors of Chaos (Hardcover)
I debated reading this book, as it essentially repeated (from another viewpoint, of course) many of the same incidents as described in "The Magic Engineer". However, there was a lot of careful thought put into this by Modesitt, and a much better realization of the similarities between Order and Chaos, rather than just the differences. A much more sympathetic view of the White Order, and an excellent story of Cerryl's growth and development of the skills needed to become an effective High Wizard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is alute you, Mr. Modesitt. . ., 6 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Colors of Chaos (Hardcover)
Well...what can I say? This series has it all... adventure, politics, romance and action, all at just the right spots. The series takes on a new depth as Modesitt begins taking in the view of the White Wizards of Fairhaven and showing their motivations. The Colors of Chaos is a powerful addition to a wonderful series. Read them all and buy them all...they are definitely ones for the collection.
