Book 8 of the Imager series, or book 5 of the "Quaeryt" story arc.
This book continues the story of the founding of Solidar, as Lord Bhayar unifies the continent of Lydar, with Commander Quaeryt leading his Imagers to overcome treason within the forces of Bhayar.
In this volume, Quaeryt continues to move towards building a Scholarium where all Imagers and their families can live and learn while supporting the common good of all. But first he must do battle with elements within the armies of Lord Bhayar that want to put control of the continent in the hands of the army and of the High Holders.
The action level is about typical for this series, but there is thankfully much less of the overt sermonizing. I continue to find the reading of William Dufris excellent, though there are occasional times where I lose track of whether it's Quaeryt or Bhayar speaking towards the second half of the book.

This whole series is spell binding. The continuation of characters, and following their lives through the story line is captivating. I can never wait for the next book in the series to see what the next adventure will be. I'm sure people with a military knowledge would enjoy that aspect of the stories, however, that being said. . . . it's a real page turner anyway.
Would you listen to Rex Regis again? Why?
I found the Imager series captivating in concept and the narrator really brings the characters to life (for me at least). This episode draws the threads of the Imager series together well but I hope does not mark the end of the series.
What did you like best about this story?
After a slow start it got into its stride (matching the earlier book) and neatly gave a background to the society that was introduced to us in the first three books of the series.
Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I downloaded it on the day it was released, that should say it all.
Any additional comments?
I personally found this eagerly awaited addition to the series rather too slow and ponderous to get going. It wasn't until the second part of the download that the story really started to provide the same attraction as the earlier books. That is not to say that if there are other books in the series that I won't be at the front of the queue.
