Publisher's Summary

L. E. Modesitt, Jr., is one of the standard setters in fantasy today, and his most famous series is the Saga of Recluce. Each novel fills in pieces of the history of this land where Chaos and Order strive to maintain a magical balance.

Magi'i of Cyador marks the beginning of a new tale from deep within the rich depths of the history of Recluce. This is the story of Lorn, a talented boy born into a family of Magi'i. A diligent student of remarkable talent, Lorn lacks only the single most coveted attribute required of a Magus of Cyador: Unquestionable loyalty. Lorn is too independent for his own good.

So Lorn is forced to become a lancer officer, and he's sent to the frontier to fight off the all-too-frequent barbarian raids - a career that comes with a 50 percent mortality rate. His enemies don't expect him to survive....

Lorn is a fresh, new character who will enrich one of today's most important fantasy series: the Saga of Recluce.

Matt's of Cyador

To just say that this book is good would not be doing it credit. Having many books this one is one of my favorites. It draws the reader in as the world and the characters are revealed. An author with great skill, this book does credit to its creator.

Best books in the series

Together with it's sequel, this is my favorite of all the recluce novels. characters are just so well fleshed out and pacing leaves you wanting more. just a great book, and very well presented by KH.
