The new Recluce novel is the biggest fantasy from L. E. Modesitt, Jr. to date. It is a study of the adult life of the White Chaos wizard Cerryl, his education in life and love, and his rise to power in the magicians guild of Fairhaven. This is a direct sequel to The White Order, which told of Cerryl's boyhood and youth, and takes place at the same time as the events in Modesitt's earlier novel, The Magic Engineer. Yet it stands alone, the longest Recluce novel, a portrayal of the growth and change of character and of the strengths and weaknesses of an age-old civilization held together by the power of magic.
This is a must-read for followers of the Saga of Recluce, offering a unique, sympathetic point of view of the White Chaos wizards -- the forces that throughout history have opposed the magicians of Recluce.
