Synopses & Reviews
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. begins a new Recluce story in Natural Ordermage
, the first of two volumes set mostly on the continent of Hamor, far across the sea from Recluce.
Rahl, a young apprentice scrivener on the island of Recluce, likes life to work out in his favor. And he has a bad attitude, too. To make sure things go his way, he uses a small amount of order magic in opportunistic moments--but his abilities are starting to get the attention of the Council magisters. So the Council sends him to the mages training school for testing, and through misuse of his powers, which are getting stronger all the time, he gets himself banished to the continent and empire of Hamor.
As an exile in Hamor, working in the Ordermage Council's import and export business, Rahls powers increase more—and so does the amount of trouble he can get into.
Welcome to the fantasy world of L. E. Modesitt, where the adventure is just beginning.
Praise for Natural Ordermage:
“Recluce fans may well devour this book at one sitting, and eagerly await its sequel.”
"Modesitt renders the people and places of Recluce and Hamor . . . with diligent attention to detail.”
“Can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel. Readers new to Recluce as well as fans of the series will both enjoy this tale.”
The first of two brand-new volumes in the Recluce saga, set mostly on the continent of Hamor, begins when Rahl, a young apprentice scrivener, is exiled in Hamor. As his magic powers increase, so does the amount of trouble he creates.
