L.E.Modesitt writes a story with a style similar to a couple of other top notch writers. His story line is easy to follow and flows well without bogging the reader down. The action level stays high enough to entice the reader to keep reading from cover to cover. His characters are well fleshed out and easy to remember. Sometimes the story lines become a little too predictable, but the characters and action levels will keep the reader enthralled.

Modesitt continues to write in an entertaining but realistic manner. Granted that the settings are fantasy but when one adapts to the fantasy setting, the flow of the tale is realistic and relates to the real world. I will admit that this is not as good a story as some of his other works, but it rates a strong recommendation. Fiction has to be entertaining and this work is!

I have to say that Natural Ordermage is not like the rest. It has a lot of the same plot points that consistent with earlier books but the character development lacks a great deal. The entire book shows Rahl struggling with the world as it's always the world's fault for things that happen and not his. This theme could of been summed up much more quickly but dragged on and on. I have wanted to know more about Hamor since book 1 and got a peek but hunger for more. I would like to see Rahl grow as a character and bring us along on his adventures back to Recluce and around Hamor. That's what I'm hoping for:)

On the island of Recluse, master scribe Kian mentors his apprentice younger son Rahl his older offspring Kacet is a member of the Guards of the council stationed at Reflin. Unbeknownst to Kian, to avoid hassles and make life easier on himself, Rahl serendipitously uses tiny doses of order magic when he thinks the time deems to do so. However, his efforts to conceal his illegal use prove futile as the Council magisters trace his misuse back to him. The council has Rahl tested to ascertain the strength of his ability and why the rules of magic seem not to apply to him. Between his impulsive youthful temper and his seemingly out of control skill, the Council exiles him across the sea to the wilds of Hamor a place where he will either learn to control himself and his order magical usage working on export-import trade or die. Either outcome is acceptable to the Council. --- Although NATURAL BORDERMAGE is listed as the fourteenth Saga of Recluse tale, the novel mostly takes place on Hamor. This location switch to an apparently less civilized place brings freshness to the L.E. Modesitt, Jr. environs. The story line is a coming of age fantasy starring a fascinating youngster who just wants order in what he perceives is a WELLSPRING OF CHAOS. Although well written, the book is the first of two novels so that the climax is more a set up to the sequel even as the hero becomes more adept with magic, his ability to land in trouble also increases (strong correlation between the independent variable of skill level and the dependent variable trouble he is in). --- Harriet Klausner
