Imager is an imaginative journey to a world not to different then parts of our world one hundred fifty years ago, but with some very subtle differences and one very big difference. This world has a small number of people who can image or make objects or products through their thoughts. With this ability come challenges and risks as the rest of society finds them both useful and threatening. The main character, Renn, finds himself unexpectedly in this world of imagers and finds that nothing well ever be the same again for him as his new found abilities destroy old relationships, bring threats to his life and even romance.

This is a book for people who appreciate the development of the main characters, who want to understand both the main structure and the minutia of this new society and enjoy a good mystery with action!

I had not read any other works by this author, but after reading this book am now marching down the path of reading all his prior works.

I read tons of science fiction and fantasy book but this is the first book by this author that I have read. I was excited to read one of his books because I have heard such great things. I thought the imager idea was interesting and that this was sure to be a good read. However, this book was dull. The characters were uninteresting and often inconsistent in their personalities (i.e., inflexible snob then accepting of anything/one). I thought it read more like an author's first book than that from a seasoned writer. Some things were over explained, again and again, and some things not explained at all. Mostly, I felt disappointed because the imager idea sounds so cool, there is so much to work with there and this story really went no where. If you are not cheering on the hero there is a problem. I had a difficult time making it to the end of it and really wish I had closed the book much sooner.
