In Imager, the first book of the Imager Portfolio, we met Rhennthyl, an apprentice portrait artist whose life was changed by a disastrous fire. But the blaze that took his master's life and destroyed his livelihood revealed a secret power previously dormant in Rhenn; the power of imaging, the ability to shape matter using thought. With some trouble, he adapts to the controlled life of an imager.

By Imager's Challenge, Rhenn has become a liaison to the local law forces. He finds himself in direct conflict with both authorities and national politics as he tries to uphold the law and do his best by the people of his home city.

Now, in Imager's Intrigue, Rhenn has come into his own. He has a wife and a young child, and a solid career as an imager. But he has made more than one enemy during his journey from apprentice painter to master imager, and even his great powers won't allow him to escape his past.

Imager Portfolio is a magical world from the bestselling author of the Saga of Recluce. Imagers are the few in the entire world of Terahnar who can visualize things and make them real. They live separately from the rest of society because of their abilities, which make them both feared and vulnerable. Another innovative and enchanting series, it spans centuries and millennia in the refreshing Modesitt fashion that will delight his fans.

Unlike most people, I hated actually going to sleep and looked forward to waking up . . . in a way. When I'd been a struggling apprentice portraiturist years before, I never would have believed I could have felt that way, but life has a way...
