Now second only to the governor, and still hiding his powers as an Imager, Quaeryt is enjoying his new position, as well as his marriage to Lord Bhayar's youngest sister, Vaelora, when a volcanic eruption devastates the old capital of Telaryn. He and his wife are dispatched to Extela, Telaryn's capitol city, to replace the governor killed in the eruption. Not only must Quaeryt and Vaelora restore order to a city filled with chaos and corruption, but they must do so quickly. The regiment under his command (and the sources of his political power on the spot) must soon depart to bolster Telaryn's border defenses against a neighbouring ruler who sees the volcanic devastation as a possible opportunity for invasion and conquest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for the Imager Portfolio:
"The prolific Modesitt kicks off a new fantasy series that boasts an early modern setting--think Victorian times without the pollution.... Modesitt's capacity to wring new surprises from stock ideas remains undiminished." --"Kirkus Reviews "on "Imager" "Modesitt writes some of the most interesting characters in Fantasy. He is a master of developing young heroes. Fans of the author's "Recluce" and "Corus" series will enjoy this series as well."
--"SFRevu "on "Imager's Challenge"
"Modesitt has drawn a superb portrait of an honest and powerful man handed a crisis that even he may not be able to handle.... Extremely satisfying." --"Booklist" on "Imager's Intrigue

""There is something so satisfying about picking up a novel by an author who's consistently good at his or her craft: the heft of the book, the scent of the ink, the awareness that what will happen in the pages will be truly wondrous. It is no different with Modesitt's latest travel in the world of the Imagers; although Scholar is tied to the other books, this is a prequel that can stand alone. Quaeryt is a fascinating character, and his trials and journey are action packed and yet intellectual."
--"RT Book Reviews, 4 stars "on "Scholar"
