    Although Rhennthyl is the son of a leading wool merchant in L'Excelsis, the capital of Solidar, the most powerful nation on Terahnar, he has spent years becoming a journeyman artist and is skilled and diligent enough to be considered for the status of master artisan - in another two years. Then, in a single moment, his entire life is transformed when his master patron is killed in a flash fire and Rhenn discovers he is an imager.

    "The first in a series of - 5 Stars"
    Overall

    A book that pulls you into a new world. I just completed the first three books, and rate all 5 stars, and I rarely give 5 stars. The story line kept pulling me in. I would think I would stop at the next chapter, but I want to hear more and more. Modesitt does a great job developing the characters and the story. A must read (listen).

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    While not about a wizard, instead a 2000+ y.o. Druid, the world of magic and supernatural are involving and alluring. While I have listen to the first three, I am eager for the fourth.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Many comments have been made about the change in narrators. I was disappoint to hear of the change, but bought the book anyway. I was hesitant to buy the book with the change of narrators and the negative comments by some posted here. All in all, I think Glover is a great narrator for this book. It does take getting use to, but after a few chapters, I accepted Glover as Dresden. I enjoyed the book and enjoyed Glover???s reading. Enjoy.

    Rhenn's past catches up to him in this third entry in L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s hit Imager Portfolio series.

    Ryan says: "Was okay..."
    "Great Finish for this part of the portfolio."
    Overall

    I believe this was a fitting end to the part of the portfolio. It wrapped up many of the storylines for Rhenn, but left opening for the adventure to continue. My understanding is that Modesitt is writing a prequel to first three books, I look forward to those books, and hope there are sequels to this storyline. A very enjoyable world that he has created.
