Magi'i of Cyador (Saga of Recluce)by L E Jr Modesitt
Synopses & Reviews
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% 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.
Magi'i of Cyador is the tenth book in the saga of Recluce.
The newest novel in the story arc of the history of Recluce tells the story of Lorn, a remarkably talented boy born into a family of Magi'i, who lacks the single most coveted attribute required of a Magus of Cyador: unquestionable loyalty. Lorn is too independent for his own good, and he's made into a lance officer and shipped off to the frontier to fight off the barbarian raids.
