Publisher's Summary

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. 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 fulfillment 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.

    Story
    "More Imager, less "Nameless""

    Book 8 of the Imager series, or book 5 of the "Quaeryt" story arc.

    This book continues the story of the founding of Solidar, as Lord Bhayar unifies the continent of Lydar, with Commander Quaeryt leading his Imagers to overcome treason within the forces of Bhayar.

    In this volume, Quaeryt continues to move towards building a Scholarium where all Imagers and their families can live and learn while supporting the common good of all. But first he must do battle with elements within the armies of Lord Bhayar that want to put control of the continent in the hands of the army and of the High Holders.

    The action level is about typical for this series, but there is thankfully much less of the overt sermonizing. I continue to find the reading of William Dufris excellent, though there are occasional times where I lose track of whether it's Quaeryt or Bhayar speaking towards the second half of the book.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    Story
    "Paying for Success"

    I think the biggest feature I liked about this book was that Modesitt settled down the battles and went back to writing about the political. There are prices that everyone is now paying for the success that Quaeryt achieved and plans to be made. This book has far less action that the other Imager books but after Battalion I was personally grateful. Yet Quaeryt does seem to comfortable in any role in this book. I felt that if Modesitt have wanted this book be a wrap and it could be a penultimate to the Quaeryt tale.

    William Dufris continues to provide a strong narration. After 7 previous books in the Imagers there is not surprise.

    Story
    "Not quite as good as predecessors"
    Would you listen to Rex Regis again? Why?

    I found the Imager series captivating in concept and the narrator really brings the characters to life (for me at least). This episode draws the threads of the Imager series together well but I hope does not mark the end of the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    After a slow start it got into its stride (matching the earlier book) and neatly gave a background to the society that was introduced to us in the first three books of the series.


    Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Excellent


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

    I downloaded it on the day it was released, that should say it all.


    Any additional comments?

    I personally found this eagerly awaited addition to the series rather too slow and ponderous to get going. It wasn't until the second part of the download that the story really started to provide the same attraction as the earlier books. That is not to say that if there are other books in the series that I won't be at the front of the queue.
