L.E. Modesitt, Jr.'s Arms-Commander continues his bestselling fantasy series the Saga of Recluce, which is one the most popular in contemporary epic fantasy.

The keep of Westwind at the Roof of the World, faces attack by the adjoining land of Gallos. Arthanos, son and heir to the ailing Prefect of Gallos, wishes to destroy Westwind because the idea of a land where women rule is total anathema to him.

Westwind dispatches Saryn, their Arms-Commander, a neighboring land to seek support against the Gallosians. To secure their aid, Saryn must pledge her personal support—and any Westwind guard forces she can raise—to the defense of its ruler.

The fate of four lands, including Westwind, rest on Saryn's actions.

Praise for Arms-Commander

“An intriguing fantasy in a fascinating world. . . . Modesitt presents an interesting study of Chaos versus Order, Good versus Evil . . . and the attractions each of them has for all of us.” —Robert Jordan on The Magic of Recluce

“Saryn is as actualized a protagonist as you will ever read, and the plotting of the novel is superb. This is one novel you won't want to put down until you cross the finish line.” —RT Bookreviews (4 and ½ stars) on Arms-Commander

“Modesitt does a nice job of filling the reader in on what comes before. . . . Depth of character is Modesitt's greatest strength.” —SFRevu on Arms-Commander

Arms-Commander is another solid effort by Modesitt, one that should please long-time fans. Here's to hoping that we'll have the opportunity to read more about the Angels and how their coming changed the world forever.” —Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist

“Modesitt renders the people and places of Recluce and Hamor . . . with diligent attention to detail, treading the narrow line between exquisite world-building and overbearing verbosity.” —Publishers Weekly on Natural Ordermage

“Modesitt's subtext is power and responsibility, explored both through the action-packed main plot and through Kharl's legal studies . . . . This thoughtful work should appeal to all readers of fantasy.” —VOYA on Ordermaster
