L.E. Modesitt, Jr., lives in Cedar City, Utah.
The author of the New York Times best-selling "Recluce" novels presents Book 1 in his new "Imager Portfolio" fantasy trilogy, in which young journeyman artist Rhennthyl discovers he is an "imager"-i.e., he can make things real by visualizing them-and begins his journey through the ranks of imagers. The narrative is rife with realism and colorful characters. The plot escalates effectively: listeners will be left anxiously awaiting the next installment. Six-time Audie Award nominee William Dufris (The Futurist) masterfully brings the story to life. Most listeners, fantasy fans or not, will enjoy.
