Didn't see one for this in the index or scanning the first few pages worth of threads, but if there is one already, please lock. I started reading the Saga of Recluce sometime back in middle school (so, a decade-plus ago), and it was actually one of the first non-SW sci-fi/fantasy series I got into. The series is up to 15 books now, though I haven't read Mage-Guard of Hamor yet - should get it when it comes out in PB in March. Very interesting series that is based on the interaction of order (black) and chaos (white) and various black, white, or gray mages, with a timespan covering close to 2000 years. The books aren't in chronological order (though its easy enough to put them in such an order) but really do have a significance to the order their in, and Modesitt has stated that they should be read in order of publication and not occurrence in-universe, though I like both ways. I've also read the Spellsong Cycle, which was also quite good, and have a couple other of his books waiting to be read. One of the best things about Modesitt, though, is that he has his own forum on IBDoF and is usually quite prompt in answering questions - I've posted a few times there and he's responded within days, and he's always willing to discuss aspects of his books with fans on there. Anyone else read his works?
