Présentation de l'éditeur

The saga of the Imager Quaeryt, Commander in the forces of Lord Bhayar, reaches a new climax as the great struggle to unify the continent of Lydar enters its final phase in L.E. Modesitt's Rex Regis, Book 8 in The Imager Portfolio.
 
Only the land of Khel remains uncommitted to Bhayar’s rule. Their decision could mean a lasting peace, or more conflict across an already war-ravaged realm.

While the conqueror of Bovaria awaits emissaries to arrive with news of Khel’s decision, other weighty matters occupy Bhayar, his sister Velora, and her husband Quaeryt—not the least of which is the fulfillment of Quaeryt's dream to create the world's first Imager academy, where the magical abilities of these powerful casters may be honed, managed, and put to the service of the common good.
 
But before that dream may be realized, or Khel’s fateful choice made known, the spectre of high treason threatens to unravel all that Quaeryt has achieved, catapulting him toward a fateful confrontation with Bhayar's most powerful military leaders.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid conclusion to a solid series 9 janvier 2014
Par Rover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
At long last, the story of Quaeryt Rytersen has come to an end, two books later than I expected. The previous two books were building to this conclusion, so there were nearly no surprises. Instead, this was a book of methods to bring the reader back to the first book in the series, set 500 (guessing) years after this one. How was the country of Solidar established (in the end), how was the Imager Collegeum built, and why was the government structured the way it was in Rhenn's time?

Modesitt is almost a one-trick pony when it comes to writing a series. The same character types are used repeatedly, the moralizing never changes, and the plot is well established. Like many serialized stories, what brings me to read this next book is the execution of the requirements. The flourishes and deviations, the wording and presentation, what is said and what is implied, are all fun mental exercises for me. Additionally, in this series and particularly in this book, characters from previous books are brought back to complete multiple-book storylines.

I picked it up to complete the series. I recommend it to people who are doing the same. But for new people, I recommend starting back at Imager.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much talk, but second half worthwhile 16 février 2014
Par MusicCityEngineer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well, this was a pleasant eniugh book to end the series with, if not as dramatic as the others. In some ways Rex Regis reads like a long denouement to the Imager series. The first half of the book lacks dramatic tension because there is little at stake for the main characters, and little mystery about what Queryt can do. However, it is sort of pleasant to be in that world again, and there is something mesmerizing about the cycle of traveling and imaging, talking and imaging, that forms the first part of the book. The second half of the book does build to a satisfying and original dramatic climax, but then unwinds to a long and leisurely denouement of its own.

Having read many of Modesitt's books, I have noticed that there is a wide variation in quality among them. This one is not quite the quality of the first few Imager novels, yet it is a fairly satisfying end to the series. If you want to see what Modesitt is capable of when he is writing with enough time and attention, I recommend "The Elysium Commission," which I consider one of his best books, it is really complex and delightful. "Haze" is probably one of his worst. I'm not a fiction author, but I guess it must be difficult to sustain interest and quality of narrative over a long series with the same set of characters like this Imager series. Other SF authors struggle with this also, witness David Weber and his Honor and Safehold series, which start out well, then descend in later books into interminable dialogs in which the characters congratulate each other. I think there is some of the same dynamic here, with an awful lot of conversation and not much action in the first half of the book. However the second half of the book mostly redeems the book and makes it a decent reading experience.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very human tale 7 janvier 2014
Par J. Hulet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Regis Regis is the eighth book of the IMAGER PORTFOLIO and the fifth book following Quaeryt. After literally years of hard work, war, and nothing less than miraculous events, the curtain begins to close on this part of Solidar’s history.

The fall of Antiago had been particularly painful for Quaeryt because of the loss of his child when his wife was injured. The reality of the constant threat of power-hungry competitors to influence the future of the continent of Lydar leaves Quaeryt with very little time to heal or mourn. In spite of his incredible success, Quaeryt knows that he must race back to report to Bhayar, now ruler of almost all of Lydar.

As in the previous four books, Quaeryt spends a great deal of time interacting with recalcitrant High Holders. These men enjoyed great power under the previous ruler of Bovaria, but are now very slow to adapt to Bhayar’s rule because they believe that they are somehow exempt from the constraints on the rest of humanity. There are notable exceptions to the rule, including men who, because of loyalty to personal family or who suffered tragedy at the hands of the previous ruler, are now open to change. Those side stories are often poignant, though they are often tragic.

Quaeryt and his highly intelligent, insightful, beautiful wife Vaelora (read that as cliché Modesitt female hero) are again given difficult tasks in order to support Bhayar. It has been almost frustrating to watch Bhayar continually struggle to embrace their support and insight. Bhayar just seems to constantly fight against the repeated demonstrations of Quaeryt’s loyalty and demonstrated expertise. It is part of what makes the story work because Bhayar doesn’t just magically supplant a lifetime of social and political culture with a completely new frame of reference. It’s a painful, difficult challenge and marks him as a monarch of quality.

The expected conflict between Quaeryt and the established military leadership finally comes to a head when Submarshal Myskyl’s continued insubordinate behavior forces Bhayar’s hand. After months of missing reports and hints of seditious activity coming from the north, Quaeryt is dispatched with his loyal troops and Imagers to investigate Myskyl.
Rex Regis would have been just another typical IMAGER book if it weren’t for Modesitt multifaceted representation of human society. In the High Holders we see how power corrupts, and the greater the power the greater the corruption. The Factors, business owners and shipping magnates, represent greed and how the absence of oversight or moral expectations leads to another form of corruption. These examples of human weakness have pervaded the books from the beginning, but in Rex Regis there were counterpoints. We see a Factor family more concerned with caring for each other than with accumulating greater wealth and status. We see a High Holder, who through personal tragedy, come to grips with the reality of his stewardship of those under his control.

Rex Regis, appears to be the final installment for Quaeryt. I may not have loved every minute of the journey from scholar to the Maitre of the College of Imagers, but it was worth the effort.

This book was an excellent ending to the Imager scholar. It explained a lot about how the collegium was started. How they had to fight and join with the Soon to be Rex of a newly formed Solidar. How treachery comes from every where, and the problems ruler have trying to join large lands and people with different beliefs. I have bought and read every one of the Imager books and enjoyed every minute. I love the Modesitt books

I really like most of the books from this author, but either he or the publisher stretched this series too far. I think it would have been much better if some filler was removed and the series was just three or four books instead of five. This last book was mostly just wandering around getting nowhere.
