Locus Bestseller List "A master of world-building."--What's New in Book Reviews "The series as a whole is exceptional. In fact, I am not sure whether I will nominate The Imager Portfolio or The Saga of Recluce for the Hugo's new Best Series award. Both series have moved fantasy forward."--SFRevu "How satisfying it is to settle down with another long, solid novel by L.E. Modesitt, Jr."--SF Crowsnest "The level of detail Modesitt brings to his world-building is, as always, both uncompromising and astonishing . . . one of the most complex depictions of the evolution of a fantasy universe ever."--Tor.com "L.E. Modesitt, Jr. . . . His name alone makes the promise of engaging adventure, be it of the high fantasy or science fiction variety."--Mania "With meticulously wrought characters and complex, logically developed plotting that towers above the fantasy norm." --Kirkus Reviews
