Endgames is the stunning final volume in L. E. Modesitt, Jr's, New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series the Imager Portfolio, and the fourth book in the story arc that began with Madness in Solidar through Treachery's Tools and Assassin's Price.
Solidar is in chaos.
Charyn, the young and untested ruler of Solidar, has survived assassination, and he struggles to gain control of a realm in the grip of social upheaval, war, and rioting. Solidar cannot be allowed to slide into social and political turmoil that will leave the High Holders with their ancient power and privilege, and the common people with nothing.
But the stakes are even higher than he realizes.

I wish it wasn’t over. We’ll done, well written. I wanted more!!!
This is one of Mr. Modesitt's better offerings and is a satisfying conclusion to the Imager series.. I really enjoyed the minutiae of everyday live in Solidar from the perspective of Charyn the last Rex as he works to introduce the greatest social change of all time. Recommended.
I have read over 40 of the Modesitt books and enjoyed all of them. Endgames ranks as one of his very best.
Bought on release date, and finished overnight. This book was a satisfying conclusion to the three book Charyn D’Rex storyline, and also the Imager series. I note that although the Charyn D’Rex story is complete, the author could write additional Imager books if he chooses to. My only pet peeve with the author is that he spends a lot of time developing love relationships in his books.. and then always skips past the actual weddings and events around that time. Suddenly they are married and have children. Even this book barely mentions it with "a private ceremony earlier in the day". Odd that the author habitually details items eaten, house furnishings, etc.. but feels a wedding day is not worth a mention.
