Please continue to let your books become audiobooks. Any chance that they might not be? Please keep writing! Just finished Recluse Tales. It was fantastic! It touched on a number of mentioned non main characters and added even more depth to a great setting. Any plans to release the Recluse Tales book in a hardcover book size that is not the smaller book club format? A number of readers have complained about this, but, frankly, I was fortunate to be able to get it released in hardcover at all, since Tor lost money on my last collection of stories.

It is with sadness that I see no hard SF offerings slated. You are one of two authors that I have in hardcover. I also have the SF in paperback for travel reading. Since the basis of the hard SF is ethics, the series has been a mentor for me. I love your style of writing. I have re-read all of your books at least 3 times. I want to say publicly that I really enjoy your writing style and your stories. I am currently reading Recluse Tales and find myself wanting to go back and reread the entire Recluse series over again with a new perspective.

I love your novels and hope you continue to build all your worlds with the love and care you have done so with Recluse. Sir, Your words are the empowerment of my dreams, after reading all the books of recluse in publishing date and chronological date many times over the years and years. Thanks, Perhaps someday, you will setup a Patreon site to your self. I am your one of your Devoted Fan, and would have you happy and hale. My top favorites worlds are your books on Recluce, the Imagers, and the Spellsong. Are the worlds at all connected…like a parallel universe?

I mean, would you ever see an imager appear on Recluce? Thank you for sharing your gift! The universes are parallel, but not generally connected. The audio version of The Mongrel Mage has the same release date as the hardcover, October 31, Another deft twist to the Recluse Saga that shows how a common derogatory term can be interpreted as a compliment. A very enjoyable read that serves to continue to fill in more details about the world of Recluse. Well done. What two books does the Mongrel Mage fall between chronologically in the Recluce series?

I am very pleased that you are planning the sequel to The Mongrel Mage it is unlike you to leave so many loose ends as there are at the end of this book. Beltur is a fascinating character one of your best, part war mage, healer, teacher,smith and reluctant leader, marvellous!! Your email address will not be published.

The Towers of the Sunset

Remembering an invitation from a mysterious trader in Montgren, Beltur and Jesslya travel with the young white mage and her family to the small duchy to seek a better life. Surviving bandit raids and surveying local power structures along the way, Beltur's followers arrive in Montgren to find themselves not only welcome, but expected. The Duchess offers them an enticing prospect - they can become the new council for a practically abandoned town, making it a home shaped in their own image.

Beltur accepts and pledges to manage the town, Haven, as a place where mages of both chaos and order will be welcome. But, half-way across the continent of Candar, towards the East, is Fairhaven: a city-state ruled by an oligarchy of white wizards. Their prejudices and their written history imply that Fairhaven was founded by descendants of Cyador. Westwind is the bulwark of the matriarchal societies of Western Candar which hold to the Legend of Ryba. Westwind is under threat from the white wizards of the city of Fairhaven, which exerts a great deal of influence over the male-dominated lands of Eastern Candar.

A very strong order mage, Creslin, who is suggested to be the son of Weryl and grandson of the first "black mage" Nylan, flees female-dominated Westwind prior to an arranged marriage, only to be pursued by the white wizards who fear his strength. He ultimately escapes Candar, having married a chaos wizard in the process, and sails to the uninhabited island of Recluce.

Here, Creslin begins a society based entirely on order magic. We also begin to learn the dangers of widespread order or chaos magic, as Creslin's unskilled efforts to make Recluce habitable cause severe weather elsewhere in the world, including massive storms, hurricanes, floods and droughts. Several hundred years later, the chaos wizards in Candar have managed to conquer almost the entire continent.

Beginning in the year , The White Order and Colors of Chaos depict the progress of a young chaos wizard named Cerryl as he rises in the ranks of the white wizards. He is constantly fending off attempts on his life from the extremely powerful wizard Jeslek, who has begun to literally raise mountains from the ground to protect the paved highways the chaos wizards have been creating across Candar.

At the same time, in the year , The Magic Engineer details the journey of Dorrin, an order mage from Recluce. This is the point, both chronologically and to the reader, where the importance of balance between chaos and order starts to become apparent.

Imager. Book Review

There are some hints in this regard in the first novel, but here the underlying causes are explained more fully. Creslin's attempts to focus order around Recluce have led to an abundance of "free chaos" elsewhere in the world. This has led to increasingly stronger chaos wizards, ultimately leading to the formation of a 'chaos-focus' in the wizard Jeslek, granting him extraordinary strength.

This, in turn, is allowing more order to be focused in Recluce, until something catastrophic happens to reset the balance. Dorrin begins using order magic with his innate engineering talent to create steam-powered machines from order-infused wood and metal.

These are capable of containing large amounts of chaos energy. Of particular note are the extremely fast and powerful warships that Recluce begins to build, after Dorrin demonstrates their usefulness. The vast amount of order concentrated in these ships will accelerate the growth of chaos in the world. Dorrin spends some time in Candar fighting off the white wizards, then returns to Recluce to become the first "order engineer" and founds what later becomes the major city on Recluce, named after Nylan from "The Fall of Angels".

Meanwhile, Jeslek is ultimately destroyed in his confrontation with Dorrin, leading to Cerryl becoming High Wizard and attempting some measure of truce with Recluce.

The switch which is a Modesitt trademark from a pro-Recluce viewpoint to one inside the heretofore vilified Hamorian empire provides a probing look at prejudice, and also lays bare the conflict and corruption within the Recluce society and organizations at that time. Rahl, an apprentice scrivener with no taste for responsibility or accountability, is discovered by the magisters of Recluce to have an inordinately strong grasp of certain order abilities.

As their methods are not suited to instruct one such as him he is exiled to Hamor. Caught in the middle of a conspiracy immediately after his arrival, Rahl soon finds himself in the infamous penal ironworks of Luba only to escape them when his abilities surface. As a mage-guard of the Empire he finds himself forced to become more than he was in order to survive first as a patroller and then as an officer in an army during a civil war. After centuries of relative peace, in , The Order War depicts the progress of two order mages from Recluce, Justen and Gunnar, as they attempt to defend the last free country in Candar from the white wizards, who have begun to use order-based soldiers to add to their own defense while simultaneously increasing their own chaos powers by increasing the amount of order in the world, as according to the plans of Cerryl from The White Order and Colors of Chaos.

During their journey, Justen transitions himself into a gray mage, and is ultimately driven into the forest of Naclos, where he becomes a Druid.

  4. We also meet several legendary figures, including Ayrlyn the wife of Nylan and one of the original angels and the still alive Weryl, and learn how the Druids' mastery of both order and chaos has enabled them to keep their bodies alive for thousands of years.

    Justen leaves the forest and returns to fight the chaos wizards, and uses his newfound knowledge of order and chaos balance mastery to form a tremendous weapon. This weapon unleashes the apocalyptic event that has been building for centuries, drawing on vast amounts of both order and chaos to utterly destroy the chaos wizards' capital city and kill nearly all of the powerful chaos wizards in the process. The result of this is a dramatic reduction in both free order and free chaos in the world.

    Another diversionary storyline begins in , with Wellspring of Chaos and Ordermaster depicting the life of an unlikely mage named Kharl.

    The Mage-Fire War

    This storyline which spans the continents of Nordla and Austra tells the story of Kharl's transition from cooper to order-mage. Kharl becomes a powerful self-taught order-mage, an unlikely hero, and reputedly the most powerful black mage outside of Recluce during this time period. The two books flesh out the resistance of Nordla and Austra to the Empire of Hamor's attempts to expand their influence on the two continents. Notable characters from previous books of the series make brief appearances, including the gray wizard Justen.

    The two books flesh out two of the areas of the world that were mostly ignored in earlier novels and provides insight into the evolution of the Empire of Hamor, which plays a prominent part at the end of the series. The final part of the saga occurs in the year and begins with The Magic of Recluce. Gunnar, who has kept himself and his family alive using druidic techniques taught by his brother Justen, sends his son Lerris who is unaware of his father's history and his own magical potential to Candar to undertake a rite of passage commonly administered to dissatisfied individuals living in Recluce, especially those who have an affinity or ability for either order or chaos.

    While exiled to Candar, Lerris meets his uncle Justen, and comes to understand his father's ulterior motives for sending him off. Centuries of dominance by Recluce and their order engineers has once again led to increasingly more powerful chaos wizards in Candar, with one in particular threatening to cause trouble on the scale of the white council. Gunnar has sent Lerris to Candar with the suspicion that a strong order mage and strong chaos wizard will ultimately be drawn into direct conflict, and that Lerris would take care of the problem without Recluce being directly involved.

    The Towers of the Sunset

    Lerris ultimately defeats the white wizard and settles down in Candar to live as a woodworker. The climax of the story, 5 years later, in The Death of Chaos sees the powerful Empire of Hamor, the oldest inhabited continent in the world, has been using the relative instability of the rest of the world to consolidate its power. In the final climactic battle on the shores of Recluce, Lerris and his family use their mastery of order and chaos to forcibly impose a balance on the world, unleasing vast amounts of subterranean lava directly into the ocean beneath the invading Hamorian forces.

    In the end, Lerris uses the vast amounts of order in Recluce to bind all of the free chaos into small, balanced units again, strongly reminiscent of particle physics.
