Description

This is the second book in . Modesitt J. s fantasy series "The Saga of Recluce. I found the opening pages the weakest: confusing, rather than intriguing

This is the second book in . I found the opening pages the weakest: confusing, rather than intriguing. Beyond the opening pages, the first half of the book proved to be a mostly-standard fantasy adventure, with a young, mostly-likable hero facing hardship and danger. In the second half the book turned, hooking me more deeply, both on an emotional level and in the challenges the characters confronted.

Book 2 of the series takes us back to the beginning of the settling of Recluce. It's an enjoyable, nicely written read in general and sets up the conflict between the black and white wizards. But, I did not really like the characters. With The Towers of Sunset, Modesitt returns to the Recluce saga in prequel form: this is the founding of Recluce by Creslin and his somewhat-reluctant partner, Megaera. Creslin is the son of the Marshall of Westwind; Megaera is the sister of the Tyrant of Sarronnyn.

The Saga of Recluce is a series of fantasy novels written by L.The initial novel in the series, The Magic of Recluce (from which the series derives its name), was published in 1991. In 2015 Modesitt stated that the then 20 novels in the Recluce series had sold nearly three million copies.

I will continue to love this style because it puts you right in the driver's seat. It gives you a sense of immediacy that, when used properly, contributes to the sense that the book you are reading is a "page turner". Towers Of Sunset is a page turner, in my opinion. Good points: 1) As with all of Modesitt's main characters, he is smart, dangerous, and a good person. And best of all - he doesn't know it.

L.E. Modesitt, Jr.'s The Towers of the Sunset continues his bestselling fantasy series the Saga of Recluce, which is one the most popular in contemporary epic fantasy.

Rather than accepting a marriage arranged by his mother, the powerful military matriarch of Westwind, Creslin chooses exile, setting out to find his own identity and developing his magical talents through conflict with the enigmatic white wizards of Candar.

What Creslin doesn't know he stands in the way of their plot to subjugate the world.

For those looking for a "magic" and "wizardy" book that takes a different and refreshing angle on the whole good vs evil magic, this book is the pay off for the somewhat slow and unexciting first book (The Magic Of Recluse) that lays the ground work for the Order versus Chaos dynamic that is the magic system in this world.

While you DONT need to read the first book, it DOES help to understand some of the ways order and magic work and the consequences of both and why the "good" wizards wear black and the bad wizards wear white.

In addition to a very new take on magic, what drives this story is the action oriented "chase" aspect as well as the very subtle yet powerful love story woven in the midst of this "chaos" (pun intended)

I want to end on that, often times whats strong in fantasy books are all the magic and spectacle, dragons and crazy stuff. But what is lost is the human magic and THAT element is present even in our "non magic" world. This book does a good blend of making you believe in this amazing magic, while telling a story with compelling and human characters that find struggles and love in ways even we can relate to.

And that is magic we can all bask in

This is one of the first books I've read through by myself (yes, that may sound sad). Having an attention problem when reading normally, this book drew me in so far I couldn't get distracted even if the world was coming to an end.

Gripping story, great characters, perfect history lesson for the series as well. It may be the second book in the series (not chronologically within the storyline), but chronicles the Founders and the beginning of Recluce itself.

The pages just flew by, the writing worked for me and I could almost feel like I was next to Creslin and Megaera as they go through their life's journey.

It certainly adds to the first book and you get a good feel of the history of Recluse.

A nice history of the origins of Recluce as a "country". From an almost uninhabitable island to a legitimate country in less than a year is amazing with all that the white wizards do to try to stop them. It shows that revenge can backfire -- twice. Underestimating your opponent is the first step to a disastrous defeat!

This is the second book in L.E. Modesitt Jr.'s fantasy series "The Saga of Recluce." I found the opening pages the weakest: confusing, rather than intriguing. Beyond the opening pages, the first half of the book proved to be a mostly-standard fantasy adventure, with a young, mostly-likable hero facing hardship and danger. I like standard fantasy adventures, and I enjoyed it. In the second half the book turned, hooking me more deeply, both on an emotional level and in the challenges the characters confronted. I would give the first half a rating of 3 out of 5 stars, the second half 4 out of 5 stars, and will round up to 4 out of 5 stars overall, as I've liked other books by Modesitt.

[Mild spoiler alert: the hero of the book grows up in a culture where the women are the warriors and the men are viewed as the weaker sex. While this does not have the groundbreaking feel of a work like Le Guin's "The Left Hand of Darkness," it is still worth noting.]

This book brought up my opinion of Modesitt a lot. It was much more enjoyable when written in second person and with fewer hard-to-make sound effects. The overall plot of the book was great, introducing the beginnings of Recluce as a Black wizard isle. While the evil characters could really have been developed to a greater extent, and some of the more exciting scenes seemed a little hurried, I truly enjoyed this read and am looking foward to reading the rest of LE's books.
P.S. If anyone has a hardback copy of this book, I'd really like to negotiate for it.

A time before recluse was recluse. A man fighting destiny a woman fighting a binding stronger then life. Dive into the second book and find out how it all began. It is a good story with solid feelings and actions!
This is a great read, one of Modesitt's best. Plenty of real human emotions, well developed ethics and magic that almost seems as if it could be real. Highly recommended.
