Publisher's Summary

Rahl was a young apprentice on the island of Recluce who was sent to the mages' training school for testing, then banished to Hamor. His education now continues under dangerous circumstances. In Hamor, his powers have increased but so has the amount of trouble he attracts.

The whole society of Hamor is a new culture for L. E. Modesitt, Jr., to explore, one in which magic is a monopoly of the state. Rahl is a mage now, powerful and still just as dangerous to himself and to others. This is the story of how he gains more knowledge and power while also learning more self-control.

I like it but..

Follows the pattern of the other order sagas. I just wish there was a third installment to close quite a few loose ends. Other than that it is a solid book with a few interresting new discoveries.

Better than the First half

This the second half of the story is better than the first as the main character redeems himself from the unlikeable person he was
