Rhennthyl has come a long way since his time as an apprentice portrait artist when a fire unveiled his talent as an Imager. In L'Excelsis, Solidar he has become Captain, Third District of the Civil Patrol; Rhenn is also ranked as a Maitre D'Structure of Collegium Imago of Solidar; he has been married for five years to Sellora though they never sleep the night together due to his Imager nightmares that could burn down a room; and finally the pair has a delightful daughter Diestrya. While war looms again between Ferrum and Jariola, an arsonist torched the grain warehouse of a Freeholder; the latest to be burned down almost all owned by Freeholders while High Holders seem suspiciously immune. Finally an explosion near Place D'Opera in the Second District left several dead including Factor Broussard D'Factorious and his family; who was the target of terrorists Workers for Justice. Commander Artois says be vigil. Rhenn is soon caught in the crosshairs as his work as an apprentice painter (see Imager) and as a liaison to the law (see Imager's Challenge) makes him a target from a powerful adversary. This enemy knows Rhenn's skills from their previous confrontations and needs to insure the Imaging Captain is neutralized to prevent his interference with a diabolical plot; killing him and his family is the only way to eliminate him. The third Imager Portfolio is an exhilarating thriller that reads like a Victorian French fantasy, which stands alone, but is enhanced, by reading the previous two entries especially when the past comes home to roost. The story line is fast-paced while the locales are vivid; as expected from a former artist turned Imager. Readers will relish the latest entry as L.E. Modesitt, Jr. entertainingly ties the news together in a strong tale in which the hero knows he has come a long way, but learns how fast you can go in reverse. Harriet Klausner

Imager's Portfolio books 1 and 2 were a bit on the slow side but not to the point where the reader (at least myself) would be skipping paragraphs that seemed to be tedious. At times, it seemed as if one was sitting in a discussion of English Lit at the freshman level. The story and the general flow of the story is good. What is bothersome is that it seems to take too much time to get to the point of each chapter. One gets the feeling that at times the author just wanted to get an other 250 word page. Again - the plot of the book is good - the problem is that it seems to take too much of a bumelzug instead of a normal trip.

I am a fan of Modesitt's fantasy work. This series is a nice break from his Recluce novels. He works very hard to create a working and conceivable magic, economic, and government system. This book is the third in a series, it's not a stand alone novel, but I highly recommend the series. I'm looking forward to the next tales to unfold on this world.

Bought for my husband. He ignored us until he was finished. Must be a good book. Now it is time for book 4.

I loved the entire trilogy and this one continued the story excellently, expanding the view of the world and politics as well as philosophy without losing sight of what most of us are fighting for, life, loved and loved ones.
