But Kharl is now a famous and feared public figure, the Lord's Mage, and his notoriety makes him uncomfortable.To his surprise, Kharl is soon called upon again by Lords Ghrant and Hagen. Back in his hometown of Brysta, he discovers that his old enemy Egen is engaged in a plot with the Hamorians to take the throne from his father and open Nordla to the enemy. Kharl has to find a solution, for the sake of both the land of his birth and his adopted new country.

One of my favorite stories!

Vintage Modesitt, but this book and the first (Wellspring of Chaos) are two of my absolute favorites. I really appreciated the maturity of cooper Kharl. Great supporting cast, too.

Excellent narrator, very entertaining. The storyline held my attention throughout. Everything a good book should be and a bit more. The saga of Recluce have all been excellent and entertaining. I look forward to hearing the next one!!

another great entry to Recluse story

As always Mr Heyborne gives a fantastic performance to another great piece of the ongoing story of Recluce. I keep wondering when things will get repetative, but they dont! The story evolves, as do Modesitt Jr.'s characters. Thanks & keep up the good works!
