Charyn has come of age and desperately wants to learn more so that he can become an effective rex after his father - but he's kept at a distance by the rex. So Charyn sets out to educate himself - circumspectly.
When Jarolian privateers disrupt Solidar's shipping, someone attempts to kill Charyn's younger brother as an act of protest. Threatening notes follow in the wake of acts of violence against the rex and his family, demanding action - build more ships or expect someone to die.

Modesitt is as always a great story teller and his ability to foster a connection between his protagonist and the reader is alive and well. However, this should have been simply a period piece fiction without any association to imagers. Writing is good but if it’s in the imagers portfolio I would have hoped it was inclusive of more imaging.

Different, not quite as good.
The first thing listeners will notice about this volume of the imager's portfolio is that the main character this time around isn't an imager. Overall, the story follows the expected trend of Modessitts other imager books, though I think this one falls a bit short of the previous stories. The intrigue was predictable and the villain almost more of a stereotype than a really interesting character. Overall, this one will only really be a must buy for the dedicated fan of the series. Enjoyable for what it is, but nothing really exciting about the developments.
