Synopses & Reviews
Acclaimed bestselling author L. E. Modesitt, Jr. continues his saga of Recluce in Mage-Guard of Hamor. This is the second, after Natural Ordermage, of two volumes set mostly on the continent of Hamor, far across the sea from Recluce, where the saga began.
As young apprentice on the island of Recluce, Rahl was sent to the mages training school for testing before he was banished to Hamor. Now, Rahl is a powerful mage and still just as dangerous to himself and to others. His education continues, but Rahl soon finds that as his powers have increased, so has the amount of trouble he attracts.
Praise for Mage-Guard of Hamor:
“Mage-Guard measures up well to Modesitt at his best.”
“Fans of Modesitts Recluce books will likely love this latest addition to the series…..Rahl is a well-crafted protagonist with believable reactions to the world around him, and the high level of ordinary detail describing Hamor and Recluce never gets in the way of the story.”
--Romantic Times BOOKreviews
“The sequel to Natural Ordermage explores a new part of Modesitts world and once again displays the authors abilities to tell stories that shine with the veracity of everyday life as well as momentous events.”
