Ceryl, now a full mage in The White Order, must prove himself indispensible to Jeslek, the High Wizard. Whether through assassination, effective gorvernance of occupied territory or the fearless and clever direction of troops in battle, Ceryl faces many harrowing obstacles, not the least of which is Anya, the plotting seductress who's the real power behind the scenes of the white wizards. With his wits, his integrity, and the support of his love, the Black healer Leyladin, he must survive long enough to claim his rightful spot within the ruling heirarchy of the White Order.
This is a must-read for followers of the Saga of Recluce, offering a unique, sympathetic point of view of the White Chaos wizards-the forces that throughout history have opposed the magicians of Recluce.
Colors of Chaos is the ninth book in the saga of Recluce.

"The Colors of Chaos" covers the same conflicts as "The Magic Engineer," and, yes, some of the villains of that book are still villainous, but Cerryl and several other white mages are quite otherwise. I very much like the depth this gives to the world. I very much like how it prompts the reader to think. What makes a good ruler? A good government? A good tax system? A city one would want to live in?
This isn't quite my favorite book so far in the series (that remains "The Magic Engineer") but it's probably my second favorite. It's thoughtful, thought-provoking fantasy.
The books can be read out of order but some books in the series are sequential - the first book starts a story about a given character, the next book in the sequence finishes off that story. Be sure to read the first of these to start. Other books in the series are stand alone and can be read solo. But trust me, it would be VERY tough to read only one book in this series.
Some series have great "re-read" value and I hold this Recluse Saga as one of my most "re-read" ever. Some of these I have read 4 or 5 times and still enjoy them and have trouble putting them down. From Karl the cooper to Rahl and his issues, the characters in these books come alive and we get real buy-in to what happens to them.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a couple of the Recluse Saga books. You won't be disappointed.
