Imager’s Intrigue, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.

Imager’s Intrigue, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.

I thoroughly enjoy Modesitt’s writing. In Imager’s Intrigue, the conclusion to the Imager Portfolio trilogy, he again delivers an exciting novel. His continuing theme of examining religion, capitalism, and women’s rights are again on display, but this episode is much more plot-driven than the previous two. Politics takes the central stage here, meaning less action and more dialogue, but at the conclusion all the plot threads from the series are neatly wrapped up with the heroes predictably prevailing. A satisfying end, although I wouldn’t mind seeing more books in this universe.

First Sentence:
Unlike most people, I hated actually going to sleep and looked forward to waking up . . . in a way.
