L. E. Modesitt's bestselling fantasy novels set in the magical
world of Recluce have established a standard of entertainment in
contemporary fantasy. "In Modesitt's universe, where good and evil,
chaos and order, are in perpetual conflict, a young wizard finds
that his destiny is to strike a balance, but at considerable
personal cost. Modesitt creates a deeper and more intricate world
with each volume," says Publishers Weekly. "Modesitt's
elaborate and intelligent working out of a systemof magic and a
system of technology parallel to it is becoming more the lifeblood
of the Recluce books with every new volume. . . . His saga
continues to gain in popularity," says Booklist. Each
Recluce novel tells an independent story that nevertheless
reverberates though all the other Recluce novels to deepen and
enrich the reading experience.
Now in Fall of Angels, Modesitt moves deep into Recluce's
past to chronicle the founding of the Empire of the Legend, the
almost mythological domain ruled by woman warriors on the highland
plateau of the continent of Candar. He tells the story from the
point of view of Nylan, the engineer and builder whose job it is to
raise a great tower on the plateau known as the Roof of the World.
Here the exiled women warriors will live and survive to fulfill
their destiny. Here a revolutionary new society will be born . . .
if Nylan can get the tower built and defenses in place before the
rulers of the lowland nations come with their armies to obliterate
them all. And if Nylan can learn to control the magical powers that
are growing within him.
Thus Modesitt relates the story of how magic comes into the world
of Recluce, in a fantasy novel destined to please the growing
Recluce audience and win new readers to the series.
