Ordermaster by L.E. Modesitt, jr


Modesitt does a lot of thought provoking as he entertains. His whole “Order/Chaos Saga of Recluce” series makes you think. This particular story is about a common man who discovers he is uncommonly gifted. The transition from someone who society works it’s way on to someone who changes society is edifying. Lots of action intermixed with a modicum of pondering. You find yourself pondering your own society as the protagonist ponders his. Magic (order/chaos) abounds through the book. The book can be read as a stand alone book but I would highly recommend reading the entire series. BTW, I seldom read any book twice, I just reread this one.

I really like L.E. Modesitt's Ecolitan series about an ecologically society versus a fundamentalist religious society. Sadly, it almost in a way seems prescient.
