My advice is to start with the first book, Imager, and read the series in order. When you finish those, you will be ready to start the Recluce series. You'll enjoy every minute.
Vaeloria's arrogance noticed in prior volumes, continues in this one. She seems to get irritated at poor Quaeryt at the slightest thing. Unfortunately, after reading the passage again, I am rarely able to understand why she is angry. I guess this arrogance is the way a spoiled sister of the king is supposed to act, especially now that she is pregnant. Or, i am just like Quaeryt. We both only know she is angry.
than working a conversation with the same content. Annoying.
Overall a good book and a great series. I just get annoyed at little things
Much of the book is similar to his other campaigns. Quaeryt gets broad/vague direction from the Emperor to accomplish the task with unspoken leeway to accomplish the task.. successfully... In this book, we don't have as much political shenanigans as we have in the past books within Quaeryt's chain of command. Thy are still there and obliquely referred to but besides some early interaction, that's it.
Quaeryt is still pondering the ethics of what he is trying to accomplish and his loyalty to the empire. You'll see that in some of the decisions he makes (or attempts to make and implement) and what actually happens.
A good book. Could have been a bit longer and gone a bit further in the overall plot than where it stopped. We will see how the next book plays out.
I have enjoyed this whole series and the Imager universe very much.
