Description

In L.E. Modesitt, Jr.'s Antiagon Fire, the hard-won battles fought in Imager's Battalion have earned Quaeryt a promotion to commander, as well as an assignment to convince the Pharsi High Council in the nation of Khel to submit to Lord Bhayar's rule, which is key to Bhayar's ambition to unite all of Solidar. Joined by his pregnant wife Vaelora, who is also Bhayar's sister, Quaeryt leads an army and a handful of imagers deeper into the hostile lands once held by the tyrannical Rex Kharst, facing stiff-necked High Holders, attacks by land and sea—including airborne fire launched by hostile imagers from the land of Antiago—and a mysterious order of powerful women who seem to recognize the great destiny that awaits Quareyt and Vaelora, as well as the cost of achieving it.

Praise For Antiagon Fire

Praise for The Imager Portfolio

“Solidly engrossing.”
Kirkus Reviews on Princeps

“The author excels in creating worlds that are believable down to the last detail and characters whose vitality expresses itself in actions that have resounding consequences.”
Library Journal on Scholar

“Quaeryt is a fascinating character, and his trials and journey are action packed and yet intellectual.”
RT Book Reviews, 4 stars, on Scholar

“Modesitt has only one style: subtle intrigues anchored in vividly drawn, complex characters, stiffly formal conversations and descriptional arabesques in tones of gray. Perhaps the best so far in this consistently fascinating series.”
Kirkus, Starred Review, on Scholar

“Modesitt's work shines with engrossing characters, terrific plotting, and realistic world-building.”
RT Book Reviews on Imager

“The Imager Portfolio features some of the best characters Modesitt has ever created.”
Booklist on Imager's Challenge

“Modesitt has drawn a superb portrait of an honest and powerful man handed a crisis that even he may not be able to handle. . . .  Extremely satisfying.”
Booklist on Imager's Intrigue
