(To be cleaned up later)
450 pages. Latest in the Imager series, following Quaeryt Rytersen and his wife Veloria into Khel to treat with the Pharsi council and then back to the middle of the southern side of the island to deal with the Autarch of Antiago. It was a lot of politics, a lot of imaging roads, and a lot of destruction of property. There were some interesting new cultural bits in Khel, including a magical test of sorts.
I picked it up because I still want to know how the country was founded and how the Imagers got their school (that was introduced in the first Imager book).
I recommend it to people who are hellbent on finishing this series. Here's a hint: we have at least one more book to go from here.Books for 2013
