Rhenn's past catches up to him in this third entry in L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s hit Imager Portfolio series.
In Imager���s Intrigue, Rhenn has come into his own. He has a wife and a young child, and a solid career as an imager. But he has made more than one enemy during his journey from apprentice painter to master imager, and even his great powers won’t allow him to escape his past.

I like the character, and the concept, but not this story which seems to show the author being burned out and trying very hard to produce something as a sequel.
This episode was barely entertaning when compared to the first 2 episodes. I have no intention to go on to book 4.
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.
You will enjoy this listen, especially if you have the first two novels. It is missing something, however; a satisfying climax. If that is enough to deter you, you will miss out, as the novel is a gem. Even with the non-explosive climax it is better than either two initial books.
I had high hopes for this one after enjoying the previous two. It is worth a credit especially if you enjoyed the others.
This book just did not have enough conflict. The arc fell pretty flat and the characters did not really evolve at all. That might be kind of harsh, but looking back it feels like the storyline did not take any real jumps forward.
This is definitely sub standard for Modesitt. He has a had time handling so many plot lines with any believability. Really one of his worst.
Due to the excellent narration, this Trilogy is much easier to listen to than to read . Without the narration I suspect i would have rated this book much lower.
I forgot the stupid use of the names of the Days, hours, min, months, weeks. The 4.95 sale sucked me in for book 3. Not a bad story but I cant take the stupid names he gives Days, hours, min, months, weeks.
Rhennthyl must bring his abilities to their peak to create a highly satisfying resolution to the problems he has been fighting. IMAGER'S INTRIGUE is my favorite of the three books about Rhennthyl, all of which I like very much and continue to reread.
I think reader William Dufris misinterpreted the main character. Rhennthyl's manners are based on modesty, and his voice should not present drawling superiority.
I could not get over the performance. If you have only read the other Imager books and then intend to listen to this one don't. The performance does not fit the setting or characters. There is little to no change in the performance when switching between characters in a conversation which makes it very hard to determine who is saying what. I am so unsatisfied that I can not even bring myself to finish it.
I have a 40 minute commute each way and with out Audible, I'd go crazy! My fav genre is fantasy and I love a great series!
This was my favorite of the 3 books in this series. Nice culmination and I feel complete and not left wanting. I hope someday Audible does Modesitt's Recluse series - one of my favorite series of all time, but this series is good too. Worth your money or credit.
