likes life to work out in his favor. 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. He''s not like other
ordermages, the same rules don''t seem to apply to his magic. And
he has a bad attitude too. It gets him sent to the mages'' training
school for testing, and then banishment to Hamor, where his
learning continues under dangerous circumstances.
During Rahl''s exile in Hamor, working in the Ordermage
Council''s import and export business, his powers
increase--and so does the amount of trouble he can get into.
Welcome the the fantasy world of L. E. Modesitt, where the
adventure is just beginning.
