I found that the Corean Chronicles Lady Protecter Mykella for instance, was a very 'experianced' sort of character, not like many book's usual characters who are either very young and inexperianced and are making mistakes everywhere.
Yes, I agree with Cocodog's statement of the fact that motivation is hard to get., and many tedious parts here.
Some parts, I agree with ekim67, Modesitt's book(s) might benifitt with a bit of expanding and shortening in a few parts, (I am not trying to judge, sorry, just my honest opinion)
Very interesting settings.

While not a continuation the first three books in the Imager series, this new work does very good job of continuing the struggles and chellenges facing an imager. it deals nicely with the concerns of an imager in, if not an actively hostel environment then at least then favorable one. ... I wish the relationship between Vaelora and Quaerty was told or expanded in more detail. One meeting and formal correspondance do not explain their relationship. ... I have to disagree with the other comments written here. I feel this work very much had the feeling and tempo of Medesitt's previous works especially those of the Corean Chronicles.

concur completely with "cocodog" and can only add I thought the protagonist lacked any redeeming feature and was worthy of eradication by the end of the book. Nowhere close to Modesitt's previous work. Let's hope his next one is back to snuff.

I found this book disapppointing in several respects: First, I thought it was a continuation of the story of Rennthyl and Seliora. It is not. In fact, The character was not one with which I was familiar from any earlier Modesitt work. Secondly, the character's motivation is difficult to discern, although it is clearly stated as following the orders of his boss. Thirdly, the character is too quick to kill, and does it often. Forth, I would advise readers to skip pages when the character goes into the library or the dispatch archives. What he does in there is BORING, and barely intlelligible. Finally, the book gets bogged down in the particulars of several small unit combat situations, and they seem to go on for ever. Not up to Modesitt's normal standards.
