Publisher's Summary

For over 1,000 years, Order and Chaos have molded the island of Recluce. The Saga of Recluce chronicles the history of this world through 18 books, L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s longest and best-selling fantasy series. Recluce Tales: Stories from the World of Recluce collects 17 new short stories and four popular reprints spanning the thousand-year history of Recluce. First-time audiences will gain a glimpse of the fascinating world and its complex magic system, while longtime fans of the series will be treated to glimpses into the history of the world. Modesitt's essay "Behind the 'Magic' of Recluce" gives insight into his thoughts on developing the magical system that rules the Island of Recluce and its surrounding lands, while "The Vice Marshal's Trial" takes the listener back to the first colonists on Recluce. Old favorites, such as "Black Ordermage" and "The Stranger," stand side-by-side with thrilling new stories.

    "Recluse lovers, this is for you"

    This might just be the best companion book to a series that I have ever read/listened to. Instead of feeling like short stories, this feels like extensions onto the novels of things that were hinted at or left hanging. Minor characters are given voice, reason and life and a different perspective on the Chaos Order balance.

    If the series speak to you, you will love this book. And not a single hedge row.

    "MAGNIFICENT 10STARS!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Recluce Tales to be better than the print version?

    Both are fabulous


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    He is Perfect with all the Recluce Saga books


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

    both


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read (or listened to) the Recluce Saga- which, by the way, you should- this might not make sense to you. But for those of us who have been following L E Modesitt Jr through this wonderful adventure, RECLUCE TALES is fantastic.
    P.S. The last story is amazingly poignant.
