Good, but the first volume is the best.

Although the book may seem slow at first, the pace significantly speeds up once started. This piece of the series competes with the other books in terms of action and ingenuity. The most intriguing component of this book was the introduction of steam machinery and advanced smithing, but where was this element in the first book? This book can stand alone, but makes more sense with the background of the previous two books. Overall a very smooth read, I enjoyed the entire thing.

Recluse is fantasy for thinkers, not 'lite' fantasy, and in this volume, Modesitt again puts together a story that feels believable... wizards that need 'day jobs' to put bread on the table, moral dilemmas, and facing the consequences of your own actions. Dorrin, a blacksmith from Recluse, has ideas about engineering, but the leaders of Recluse don't agree, so he goes off to build his machines elsewhere, which leads him to situations he didn't expect... sort of like real life.

One of the best Recluce novels. The story and the people seem so real, with doubts and fears, dreams and hopes. Dorrin is one of the more likeable of Modesitt's characters.
