Assassin's Price is the eleventh book in the bestselling, epic fantasy series the Imager Portfolio by L. E. Modesitt, Jr. and the third book in a story arc which began with Madness in Solidar and Treachery's Tools.

Six years have passed since the failed uprising of the High Holders, and the man behind the conspiracy is where the rex and Maitre Alastar can keep an eye on him.

Charyn has come of age and desperately wants to learn more so he can become an effective rex after his father—but he’s kept at a distance by the rex. So Charyn sets out to educate himself—circumspectly.

When Jarolian privateers disrupt Solidar’s shipping, someone attempts to kill Charyn’s younger brother as an act of protest. Threatening notes following in the wake of acts of violence against the rex and his family, demanding action—build more ships or expect someone to die.

Praise for Assassin's Price

Locus Bestseller List

"The series as a whole is exceptional. In fact, I am not sure whether I will nominate The Imager Portfolio or The Saga of Recluce for the Hugo's new Best Series award. Both series have moved fantasy forward.”—SFRevu

“How satisfying it is to settle down with another long, solid novel by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.”—SF Crowsnest

“The level of detail Modesitt brings to his world-building is, as always, both uncompromising and astonishing . . . one of the most complex depictions of the evolution of a fantasy universe ever.”—Tor.com

“L.E. Modesitt, Jr. . . . His name alone makes the promise of engaging adventure, be it of the high fantasy or science fiction variety.”—Mania

With meticulously wrought characters and complex, logically developed plotting that towers above the fantasy norm.” —Kirkus Reviews
