Publisher's Summary

The hard-won battles fought in Imager's Battalion have earned Quaeryt a promotion to commander, as well as an assignment to convince the Pharsi High Council in the nation of Khel to submit to Lord Bhayar's rule, which is key to Bhayar's ambition to unite all of Solidar.

Joined by his pregnant wife, Vaelora, who is also Bhayar's sister, Quaeryt leads an army and a handful of imagers deeper into the hostile lands once held by the tyrannical Rex Kharst, facing stiff-necked High Holders, attacks by land and sea - including airborne fire launched by hostile imagers from the land of Antiago - and a mysterious order of powerful women who seem to recognize the great destiny that awaits Quareyt and Vaelora, as well as the cost of achieving it.

    Story
    "Quaeryt is promoted and more battles ensue."

    Quaeryt is promoted to Commander and he is once again leading his Imager/Troopers into battle. You know the drill: High Holders, iron darts, defensive shields, Antiagon fire, and concealment shields. Sound familiar? If you are thinking about reading book 7 then you know it is. In the end this was a little bit disappointing because the book started out well.

    At the outset Quaeryt and Vaelora were sent as envoys to the nation to Khel to convince the Pharsi High Council to accept Bhayar's rule. I found Khel and the Pharsi people to be interesting and the High Council presented a different and unique challenge. The Pharsi added another dimension to the tale and the whole "Lost One" story line was getting fleshed out a bit more. Unfortunately, it didn't last.

    The Pharsi story line was eventually put on hold in an unsatisfying way and the latter half of the book was back to the same pattern of battles with only one difference - the enemy now has some imagers of their own. This did make things slightly more interesting but when those Imagers started imaging iron darts and using the same shields I found myself a bit bored. In prior books we experienced Quaeryt "discovering" and creating these battle techniques for his Imagers and I would have expected foreign Imagers with many more years of battle experience to have slightly different abilities in their portfolio. Alas, not so.

    So in the end this book is more of the same, for better or worse. The series continues to string me along and once again I find myself hoping for something better in the next book. Since it looks like the Pharsi story line will be picked back up in the book 8, perhaps my patience will pay off.

    "More of the same"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People that enjoy faceless characters, and no plot.


    What could L. E. Modesitt, Jr. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More character development, an interesting storyline.. just the basics.


    What three words best describe William Dufris’s voice?

    Rich and colorful,


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The series has take a huge fall the last two novels, and I don't see it


    Any additional comments?

    I think Mr. Modesitt wrote much of this book simply to fill pages with words. Simply put, the characters were extremely bland, the story unimaginative and predictable, and our protagonist, while a benevolent conquerer, is still a tyrant, and arrogant, self-righteous as well. He has become annoying and unlikable.

    "still interesting; love Modesitt"
    Would you listen to Antiagon Fire again? Why?

    The Imager series should be managed in order, but even out of order, can't help but empathize with the struggles of those with extraordinary abilities/burdens.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Modesitt remembers to keep the humanity in his scifi.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The discover of the Imager elders within the walled city


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Enjoyed this a lot; but it is not a tear jerker.

    Story
    "He's on a another Winner"

    Although I am disappointed with the new style of very brusque endings with almost no Epilogue, his ability to tell a compelling story and continue the adventures of our Scholar, Imager, Sub Commander is brilliant.

    Not so much an exiting story style as compelling and involved. I hope his next book is out soon!!

    "Good but not one of his best"
    If you could sum up Antiagon Fire in three words, what would they be?

    To many battles not enought character development


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More interaction between the characters and less millitary jargon


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no

    "Love Modesitt"

    Love Modesitt and couldn't wait for this book to come along, and he didn't let me down. I thought this would be the end of the series, but looks to me as if another is on the way. His characters are, as always, real as is the strange word he inhabits. Can't wait until the imager images a bunch of those 'conies' sp? to frighten off an army.

    willam dufris is one of the better audio book readers and he always sounds good it makes a book easy to enjoy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes but that would spoil it for others :)
