BUY THE BOOK

In L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s The Magic Engineer, Dorrin, a young scion of Order magicians, is interested in forbidden knowledge—the working of machines.

He is the Leonardo da Vinci of his age, but his insights violate the rules of the Order magic of Recluce, and in order to pursue his invention he must go into exile—in the lands of Chaos.

Tortured by the knowledge that to preserve Order he must create new devices for war, Dorrin stands between Recluce and the forces of the Chaos that seek to destroy it.

"An intriguing fantasy in a fascinating world."—Robert Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of The Wheel of Time® series
