Publisher's Summary

Scion of Cyador continues the story begun in Magi'i of Cyador. Exploring the rich depths of the history of Recluce, Magi'i introduced Lorn, a talented boy born into a family of Magi'i. A fastidious student mage who lacked blind devotion, Lorn was made into a lancer officer and shipped off to the frontier.
Having survived an extended stint fighting both barbarian raiders and the giant beasts of the Accursed Forest, Lorn has proven himself to be a fine officer - perhaps too fine an officer. As his prowess has grown, so has his number of enemies and rivals. Too much success has made him a marked man. When he returns to his home, both he and his young family become targets, while all of Cyad is in upheaval over the death of the Emperor.


What the Critics Say

"Military buffs should enjoy the stupidity of the army's decisions, while marveling at the fantastic swath one heroic man armed with a magic mirror can cut through politics." (Publishers Weekly)

Anyone notice...?

I love this book. On average I've read this book and its prequel at least once a year since sometime in the 90s I would guess. Heyborne does a competent job reading it.

But I have a major issue with Audible cataloging this book as written by an author with a last name of Jr. For what it's worth the kindle edition is also listed as written by Jr, and not Modesitt. WTF, Amazon? You got the name right on the rest of LE Modesitt, Jr's works, so why not fix this?

Great series!

I have really enjoyed these stories. Modesitt makes the story even more interesting in the way he provides viewpoints from all angles and through his use of time's passage. I've read (listened actually) them in the order of publication date so I may experience the stories as the author envisioned them, but they can be read in any order.
Heyborne is as fantastic a narrator/actor as is Modesitt Jr. is author.
