Not yet rated | write a review

Acclaimed author L. E. Modesitt, Jr. continues his new Recluce story in Mage-Guard of Hamor, the second of two volumes set mostly on the continent of Hamor, far across the sea from Recluce, where the story began.  

Rahl was a young apprentice on the island of Recluce sent to the mages training school for testing, then banished to Hamor.  His education now continues under dangerous circumstances.  In Hamor, his powers have increased, but so has the amount of trouble he attracts. 

The whole society of Hamor is a new culture for Modesitt—and Rahl—to explore, one in which magic is a monopoly of the state.  Rahl is a mage now, powerful and still just as dangerous to himself and to others. This is the story of how he gains both more knowledge and power, and more self-control.

Read from the Book

Chapter One   Rahl stood on the port wing of the fast frigate’s bridge, looking out at the seemingly endless gray-blue waters of the Eastern Ocean. Even in midocean, the early-fall air seemed hazy and cool, and the cloudless green-blue sky held a hint of silver. Below the iron decks, he could sense the controlled chaos of the boilers and engines of the E.S. Ascadya as she steamed northeast—toward Recluce. He could also feel the latent chaos of the powder in the locked iron magazines below the forward gun turret with its twin guns. He glanced toward the covered center of the bridge where Captain Jaracyn stood beside the officer of the day, both slightly back of the helmsman. Although the captain had been polite and courteous to both Rahl and Taryl—particularly toward the older mage-guard—Rahl could sense Jaracyn’s distaste for his mission. As a fighting commander of the Hamorian Navy, the captain would have preferred a more active role in dealing with the rebellion in Merowey than to transport two mage-guard envoys to Nylan, even though the mission was designed to keep the black ships of Nylan from becoming involved in hostilities against the Emperor. Rahl glanced back as the frigate pitched forward, slicing through a heavy swell that sent spray flying back from the bow. Two ratings in khaki trousers and collarless khaki shirts didn’t even duck as the cool spray showered them. Rahl couldn’t help but shake his head at how his life

Editorial Reviews

Praise for L.E. Modesitt, Jr.:

“This is a writer who cares about his characters and his world.  This is disciplined fantasy, not fluff. L. E. Modesitt, Jr. is uncompromising when it comes to the effects of magic, both on the natural world and on the human heart.  There are no cheap solutions to the problems of Recluce. Because of that, it is a world worth returning to.”
--Megan Lindholm (Robin Hobb)

Praise for Ordermaster:
A VOYA selection for Best Science Fiction, Fantasy,& Horror of 2004

“In this thirteenth novel in the Saga of Recluse [sic], Modesitt’s subtext is power and responsibility, explored both through the action-packed main plot and through Kharl’s legal studies….This thoughtful work should appeal to all readers of fantasy.”
--VOYA

“Modesitt’s Recluce sagas derive their appeal from the evocation of reality in every detail of setting and character.”
--Library Journal
