Description

The saga of the Imager Quaeryt, Commander in the forces of Lord Bhayar, reaches a new climax as the great struggle to unify the continent of Lydar enters its final phase in L.E. Modesitt's Rex Regis, Book 8 in The Imager Portfolio. Only the land of Khel remains uncommitted to Bhayar's rule. Their decision could mean a lasting peace, or more conflict across an already war-ravaged realm. While the conqueror of Bovaria awaits emissaries to arrive with news of Khel's decision, other weighty matters occupy Bhayar, his sister Velora, and her husband Quaeryt-not the least of which is the fulfilment of Quaeryt's dream to create the world's first Imager academy, where the magical abilities of these powerful casters may be honed, managed, and put to the service of the common good. But before that dream may be realized, or Khel's fateful choice made known, the spectre of high treason threatens to unravel all that Quaeryt has achieved, catapulting him toward a fateful confrontation with Bhayar's most powerful military leaders.

Kirkus Reviews" Overall, workmanlike rather than spectacular, as Modesitt illustrates honor, dedication and estimable personal values through the words and deeds of his leading characters.Fans won't be disappointed. "Kirkus Reviews"" Praise for "The Imager Portfolio""A wholly absorbing entry in this highly addictive series."--"Kirkus", starred review on "Antiagon Fire""[Modesitt's] world building is seamless and realistic, and his characters are not only well-rounded but somehow familiar. Series fans will put this on their must-read list."--"Library Journal, " starred review on "Imager's Battalion""Fast-paced and full of political intrigue, corruption, and more overt forms of mayhem, this novel is a worthy sequel and a wonderful addition to the Imager portfolio. Highly recommended." "--City Book Review "(Sacramento/San Francisco) on "Princeps""Perhaps the best so far in this consistently fascinating series."--"Kirkus, "starred review, on "Scholar""Modesitt has drawn a world intriguing enough by itself and thoroughly integrated the magic of imaging into it. The characters are real people, learning and struggling and dealing with their families. Rivetingly beginning a new series, Imager Portfolio, this is thoroughly absorbing, whetting the appetite for the next installment."--"Booklist" on "Imager"""
