Editorial Reviews

"[Ordermaster] is one of the better ones in this sequence, a nice mix of intrigue and overt actions. . .I was entertained throughout, and that is all I really was looking for." -Chronicle

"Spiked with the author''s customary pop psychology and propelled by rapid-fire plot spurts, this tale of a humble artisan''s rise to mageship will likely leave YA fantasy readers hungry for more."--Publishers Weekly on Ordermaster

"Strong supporting characters, vivid settings and creative approach to mythos and magic enhance this richly detailed story. New readers should feel comfortable in Modesitt''s world, where chaos and order reign in delicate balance, while series fans will welcome this return to familiar ground. As usual, Modesitt handles his world-building and characterization with ease. The Saga of Recluce is a gift for fans and new readers alike."--Romantic Times (a "Top Pick") on Wellspring of Chaos

"The author displays a rare talent for portraying the day-to-day affairs of a vividly detailed world in which chaos and order form a dynamic duality." -Library Journal
