Great Finish for this part of the portfolio.

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.

Deadly Dance

This tale involves a deadly and more intricate dance for our hero with those he loves and those who would destroy what he loves. It is immensely satisfying.

Modesitt ran out of steam for this one.

What did you like best about Imager's Intrigue? What did you like least?

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.

Would you ever listen to anything by L. E. Modesitt, Jr. again?

Yes

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

Poorly

Did Imager's Intrigue inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

This episode was barely entertaning when compared to the first 2 episodes. I have no intention to go on to book 4.

An engaging listen that is missing something

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.

Was okay...

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.

Not the best at all

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.

Very little story

I have read most Modesitt books and enjoy them but this one was phoned in.

Needs characters and depth

The author bit off an ambitious story of political intrigue and totally failed. I suspect because there was only the cardboard cutouts of the characters from the previous story telling the reader about untold numerous other cardboard cutouts that are named at best but certainly never given a backstory or motive.

The stories of the characters that actually do anything are left untold and summarized only in perfunctory military reports.

Listening to this is a waste of time. Save your credit.

A great conclusion to Rhenn's story

Would you listen to Imager's Intrigue again? Why?

Yes and I have listened too it several times. It's a great end to Rhenn's story.

What other book might you compare Imager's Intrigue to, and why?

This is a unique series and creative end to the first three books.

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed listening to this reader.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I also wanted to take my time to enjoy the book.
