I always enjoy Modesitt's novels. He is an established author/writter. I read all his recluse series. I find it entertaining, almost like real life events and good logic - facts of life reasoning. He has depth and a vivid story teller. Most of all engaging and entertaining. The only thing is I have difficulty pronouncing the names of the characters, which is ok, his style i suppose. I look forward to more imaging to come .... d

The Second book of the Second series within the portfolio, Princeps follows scholar in a series that predates the original trilogy and traces the origin of the collegium. In this book, Queryt the founder of the collegium restarts a scholarium that has fallen on tough times because it has been the front for a resistance movement. He begins to formulate the rules for imager training and enrolls the first two imagers marrying the kings sister at the kings insistence. He is given the role of princeps and later governor of an emergency province where an eruption of a volcanoe has destroyed the government and most of the capitol city. But this is a short lived role as he generates considerable friction with the locals solving many of the crises that make up the emergency, but in unpopular ways. In the meantime, he continues to learn how to protect himself with the imager skills he has learned.

I love to read multiple novels with the same major characters and experience their growth over time. This novel uncovers new aspects of the imager and explores new roles. The magic is consistent and developing over time as skills do, he develops as a character and so do his relationships. The moral dilemmas of the use of the magic for important reasons make sense without being right. For everyone, all things are broken, in a sense, and none of us can or does act completely within our moral map of the world. A great addition to ongoing saga!

Imager is fleshing out to be an excellent series, much in the same flavor has the Corean Chronicles. Can't wait for the next one.
