Publisher's Summary

As the Alector Colonel of Myrmidons, Dainyl is the fourth highest ranking military officer of the Duarchy. Alectors are a race apart from the normal inhabitants of Corus, from another world. But there is a rebellion brewing against them.

Captain Mykel is a young officer who is potentially Talented and unaware that, should he ever discover that Talent, his life is forfeit. For Mykel is not an Alector, and only Alectors are allowed to use Talent.

The rebellion spirals out of control, spurred by treachery, corruption, and greed - and aided by the reappearance of the ancient soarers, a fragile humanoid race of flying beings thought to have become extinct. A terrible war is brewing, and one or both of these men are the only ones who might stand against it.

    Story
    "what is expected"

    I think the story was well thought out and engaging but it then seemed that the rules differed for the protaganist a lot more that dulled the story somewhat. in all of the authors books you get that feeling but in this book it was a little more over the top than it needed to be.

    Story
    "Does not follow the first three books"
    What made the experience of listening to Alector’s Choice the most enjoyable?

    The book is enjoyable, but it went back and history and did not seem to be connected with the first three books. Different charaters, different point of view and a difference as to who was good and who were bad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at 20 hours plus.

    "Modesitt does it again"

    L. E. Modesitt is an outstanding story teller. He creates an outstanding world and transports you right into it. His characters are always so well defined and real.

    Story
    "Narrator falls short."

    But, enjoy if you like Modisett's worlds. This title reveals some but not all the mysteries of the cataclysm remembered by the characters in the first trilogy.
