Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Modesitt (The Lord Protector's Daughter) launches a trilogy set in a brand new world with this straightforward, exposition-heavy story. Apprentice portraitist Rhennthyl finds out the hard way that he has the magical ability called Imaging: an explosion kills his master right after Rhenn wishes for just such an event. Rhenn's ability, which allows him to form objects from thin air and slay with a glance, appears to be quite strong, and he begins training as a covert operative. Just when he starts to relax into his new career, an unknown assassin tries to kill him. This uncomplicated narrative feels like a prequel, with plenty of setup but not much action. Readers will look to future installments for the derring-do promised by Rhenn's martial studies and frequent mentions of stormy international politics. (Mar.)

From Booklist

Rhennthyl, son of a wealthy wool merchant in the city of L’Excelsis, is a journeyman portrait painter, perhaps two years from becoming a master. One afternoon, his master is killed in a sudden fire, and Rhenn learns that he is an imager—that is, someone who can visualize things and make them real. He must join the Collegium of Imagisle, where imagers are taught and protected, too, because of the risk they run of unwittingly making their nightmares real. Though living apart from the rest of society, imagers do valuable, if secret, work for their country. Hence, they are prone, collectively and individually, to making enemies. Rhennthyl makes one early on, fighting a bully. Modesitt has drawn a world intriguing enough by itself and thoroughly integrated the magic of imaging into it. The characters are real people, learning and struggling and dealing with their families. Rivetingly beginning a new series, Imager Portfolio, this is thoroughly absorbing, whetting the appetite for the next installment. --Frieda Murray
