This gentleman has somehow escaped the glory and acclamation of other authors who have produced more 'fashionable' books.
Mr Modessit is up there with the best, Katherine Kerr, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Terry Goodkind, in fact he stands atop of the pile!!
Anyway, enough of my problems.
Very subtle and very well written series. I have the original imager series set in a future time after this one and I will be rereading it after I have finished this one, as I think I will get a lot more information out of it. Every time I read these books I pick up things I have missed. The different customs of the lands he travels through are very well thought out and I find myself living the book. I want to know what happens, but I don't want the story to end
This is an inferior work, Modesitt by numbers. All his military campaigns are exactly the same. The countryside is sketchily realised, the people interactions invariably involve the hero sitting around with minimal forces, worrying at his colleagues and subordinates and getting constantly reassured by them - something that is quite simply unbelievable and irritating. Indeed there is a parody waiting to be written where all the minor characters groan at the author making them constantly pet the hero. So frankly it's boring a lot of the time. Modesitt's ability to keep the reader with him means you finish the work; but only just.
Much of the plot is silly. The hero - never mind his name, it's the same hero as every other Modesitt book - goes off on a dangerous diplomatic mission, with wife (!). Instead of negotiating the council of Khel make pointless speeches. After which, for no obvious reason, the hero goes and stands on a hill-top while people get him dive-bombed by eagles.
Anybody with an elementary experience of human interactions will find all this incredible. Khel itself was tedious and improbable as a country.
Likewise the scenes where the hero is involved in pacifying Bovaria. I wonder if Modesitt knows that there are memoirs, written by imperial civil servants who had to do precisely such a role in difficult country, after British forces had won the major battle but now had to create a nation?
