I enjoyed this book a great deal. He usually follows the same formula with his Order Chaos books, and it is satisfying. This one stood out somewhat because of the main character. The main character was older. The main character had his wife murdered and was ostracized. Kharl lived homeless on the streets. Then Modesitt got him off the streets, got him a job, got him the magic touch, got him blasting bad guys, and it rolled along nicely. A good read.I wasn't pulled in emotionally as much as in some of the other books, it just didn't seem that intense somehow. But still, a good read.

I've much enjoyed the previous books in this series, but all have tended to begin with a boy or very young man. This breaks that tradition and starts with an older man in the prime of life. It deals with issues affecting a family man and one who has seen much of life. It takes some interesting twists and turns and brings you to a conclusion that you will enjoy. I've just started the sequel to this book; it's starting out fast and also promises to be a good one. Hope you enjoy it too.

In the city of Brysta in the realm of Nordla, Kharl is contented with his work as a highly regarded cooper, loves his wife and two sons. When Kharl hears a cry he comes to the rescue of a neighbor¿s daughter who is being attacked by two men. He finds out that one of the attackers is nobleman Captain Egen of the City Guard. Egen considers Kharl an enemy so when a young woman is murdered, the captain arranges for Kharl to be arrested for the crime.............................. Testimony proves that Kharl couldn¿t have murdered anyone but his wife is convicted of the crime and he has to helplessly watch her execution. His sons flee because they know Egen is waiting to kill them. Kharl leaves the country and begins to realize that he has the powers of a mage. He learns how to harness that power which comes in handy when battling pirates or being involved in a civil war........................ WELLSPRING OF CHAOS takes place in the Recluse universe but that country is hardly involved in the storyline so this is a book that can be read by people who haven¿t perused the other novels of L.E. Modesitt, Jr. (though they come highly recommended).. The protagonist is a hero in the true sense of the word because he does what is right no matter the personal cost and does not seek revenge for the crimes against him. Kharl grows into his powers slowly as an outgrowth of his profession so the audience believes that his mage power is real. The author once again writes a fantasy novel that is simply superb.................................. Harriet Klausner
