Outcasts of Order

We rated this book:


Beltur the black mage may have turned the tides of war when Gallos tried to invade Elparta, but those in power feel threatened by his abilities. Eventually, the underhanded tactics of the Trader’s Council and a few select mages culminate in Beltur and his friends making a sudden and rapid departure from the city. They take refuge in Axalt and find some friends there, but soon it becomes clear that this new land is not a good fit for them either. Will these principled mages ever find a place where they can truly belong?

Outcasts of Order is the latest book in L. E. Modesitt, Jr.’s bestselling Recluce series, and a direct sequel to The Mongrel Mage. Readers will enjoy watching as Beltur continues mastering his use of order and chaos, improves his skills in making the once lost magely metal cupridium, and even begins teaching magery skills to others. As Beltur and Jessyla settle into Axalt, readers will delight in following their story, from the magical to the mundane, even as they slowly realize that city can never truly be home, either. Will the author continue their story with another sequel, detailing what happens after they move on again? We can hope!
