L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of the bestselling Saga of Recluce fantasy series, opens the door into a marvelous new world.

Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great worldwide civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations have fought their way up from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the lost world that preceded them or the details of its fall. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are talented enough to use them.

The time is at hand for the great move, for Corus to be abandoned by the civilizing forces of the government of Alectors. Dainyl and Mykel are trying to hold everything together as all the systems on Corus are failing. But the mysterious Ancients, the Soarers, may hold a powerful and destructive trump card.

“A powerful, enthralling and exciting fantasy epic. All the questions of the previous two books (LEGACIES and DARKNESS) are finally answered and all the loose ends are tied up. The protagonist is a hero for going into battle against an enemy that is more powerful than he is. His love for his wife adds a romantic dimension that humanizes the larger than life champion. Scepters is an outstanding fantasy.” —Midwest Book Review on Scepters

“[Legacies] offers us strong characters, a brand new world with its own subset of peoples, magical beings and beasties. . . . Old fans of L.E. Modesitt, Jr. will thrill at this new series because there is certainly enough of Recluce here to feel that you are back home without having to travel down the same old roads again. New fans will thrill at the prospect of being in at the start of a brand new world!” —

“Solidly engrossing . . . with a robust and consistent backdrop: a satisfyingly self-contained inaugural volume that skillfully sets up the sequels.” —Kirkus Reviews
