Praise for Princeps
“The prolific Modesitt kicks off a new fantasy series that boasts an early modern setting--think Victorian times without the pollution…. Modesitt's capacity to wring new surprises from stock ideas remains undiminished.” —Kirkus Reviews on Imager
“Modesitt writes some of the most interesting characters in Fantasy. He is a master of developing young heroes. Fans of the author's Recluce and Corus series will enjoy this series as well.” —SFRevu on Imager's Challenge
“Modesitt has drawn a superb portrait of an honest and powerful man handed a crisis that even he may not be able to handle…. Extremely satisfying.” —Booklist on Imager's Intrigue
“There is something so satisfying about picking up a novel by an author who's consistently good at his or her craft: the heft of the book, the scent of the ink, the awareness that what will happen in the pages will be truly wondrous. It is no different with Modesitt's latest travel in the world of the Imagers; although Scholar is tied to the other books, this is a prequel that can stand alone. Quaeryt is a fascinating character, and his trials and journey are action packed and yet intellectual.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars on Scholar
