L. E. Modesitt, Jr., continues his bestselling Saga of Recluce with The Mage-Fire War, the third book in a story arc which began with The Mogrel Mage and Outcasts of Order.
Once again, prejudices against the use of chaos magic force Beltur and his companions to flee their refuge in Axalt. The rulers of nearby Montgren have offered them sanctuary and the opportunity to become the Councilors of the run-down and disintegrating town of Haven.
Montegren lacks any mages-white or black-making this seem like the perfect opportunity to start again.
However, Beltur and the others must reinstitute law and order, rebuild parts of the town, deal with brigands-and thwart an invading army.

Enjoyed reading this latest book as much as all the others. As always Mr. Modesitt's writing style and character development result in an engaging story that is hard to put down. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
just finished - ready for the next one.
Modesitt knocks it out of the park again. His characters are realistic and likable; his stories hold together; and his magic system is understandable without being the end-all of the story. His Recluse series and his Imager series have been wonderful reads. I have read all of both series. I strongly recommend his writing to anyone who likes believable characters and a strong magic system.
