I have enjoyed the Imager books so far. The system of psionic powers that underpins the background to these stories is well worked out, although there is one large inconsistency. In the first 3 books of the Imager portfolio, the Imager has to sleep alone because of the danger to his sleeping partner if he images in his sleep. There has been no sign of the need for this in the present book. That apart, the system holds together very well. The plot was sufficiently complex to maintain my interest throughout, the main protagonists just about escape being over-simplistic, and Vaelora's character shows signs of developing nicely. I'm looking forward to the next one.

This novel continues the career of Quaeryt and as usual Modesitt builds a full character foreground and background. There is a sort of formulaic approach to this (and in other series by the same author) and on this occasion it did not have the normal resonance. Can't put my finger on it, but as a continuation of a prior 'good' novel, this lacked a similar sparkle. However, I shall be purchasing the next two books in the series when they are available in the hope of returning to a more gripping standard.

While it is very much in the tone of the Recluse books, one expects an author to write in the same style, as it is his style.

I love Modesitt's books and was looking forward to this one. However, I felt it was rushed and rather formulaic, the moral quandaries were less interesting than usual and the characters less compelling. A shame

This book is as good as any in the past from Le Modesitt Jnr, its inventive, the story is well constructed and keeps you on edge from page to page. The new characters carry on the tradition of intelligent and resourceful people with a twinkle in the eye when it comes to fun and being able to take on challenges, they hunger for both.

Buy the book you will not be disappointed and it will keep you as usual wanting more.

Latest book in the Imager Portfolio series.
A great story about a strong character. You really need to read Scholar to fully appreciate this book.
What a great author L.E.Modesitt Jr. is!

If you liked the "Recluse" series the you should enjoy the imager series. I like the way Modesitt introduces some interesting philisophical questions. life the univers and everything like Douglas Adams but more seriously.
