The first book of the Corean Chronicles

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.

Alusius is drafted into the local Militia and must fight against the invading slave armies of The Matrial, an immortal ruler in a nearby land. Alusius is captured and enslaved. If the evil surrounding The Matrial is not brought to an end, the world as he knows it could very well end.

Praise for Legacies

“Modesitt has established himself with his Recluce series as one of the best nineties writers of fantasy. The fantasies are characterized by a highly developed and consistent system of magic . . . strong characters who both suffer and are developed during the narratives, great attention to detail in the depiction of the different worlds, especially their various societies and magic systems, together with plots that carry the reader effortlessly to the last pages. Highly recommended.” —Vector

“The consistent excellence of L. E. Modesitt makes him by far the most entertaining of today's fantasy writers.” —Romantic Times Magazine
