Young Lerris is dissatisfied with his life and trade, and yearns to find a place in the world better suited to his skills and temperament. But in Recluce a change in circumstances means taking one of two options: permanent exile from Recluce or braving the dangergeld, a complex, rule-laden wanderjahr in the lands beyond Recluce, with the aim of learning how the world works and what his place in it might be. Many do not survive. Lerris chooses the dangergeld. When Lerris is sent into intensive training for his quest, it soon becomes clear that he has a natural talent for magic. And he will need magic in the lands beyond, where the power of the Chaos Wizards reigns unchecked. Though it goes against all of his instincts, Lerris must learn to use his powers in an orderly way before his wanderjahr, or fall prey to Chaos.… (més)

    sandstone78: The Death of Chaos is the direct sequel to The Magic of Recluce, and continues the story from Lerris' perspective. It is also written from Lerris' first-person perspective, unlike most of the other Recluce books which are in third-person.

The first in a series about the battle between two opposing forces: chaos and order. Recluce is a city of almost pure order, where people who compromise that order are exiled. The main character, Lerris, is dissatisfied with never getting straight answers and hopelessly bored. I was reminded a bit of Milo from A Phantom Tollbooth. such a person. But, like any good heroic fantasy, this reluctant, unlikely hero does save the day.

The book started very slowly, until Lerris is sent for training, where Modesitt started the world building. His magic system was unorthodox: black wizards are good and white wizards are evil, for example. Once Lerris got settled, the pacing improved. ( )

Stopped reading after about 2 hours of listening to the Audible version (he was doing a great job--I could tell who the characters were from the voices), primarily because it wasn't holding my interest and I know there are other books out there.

Right now Lerris is essentially at Dangergeld school, but instead of school being interesting, or mentioned as an aside to more exciting topics, or dealt with in a sentence (e.g. "and after five years had learned all they had to teach him"), no, we're getting lectures. Lots of specific lectures. Detailed lectures. And if Lerris dares breathe funny, the lecturers will say things like "No, you don't understand" and then repeat the lecture.

If I have to learn something, I'd rather learn Japanese, or macrame, not the complicated ethics of a magic system in an imaginary place. This is still supposed to be entertainment! So I'm out.

I also tend to have limited love for large, sprawling epics encompassing dozens of books and 20 times that many place names and 50 times that many characters, so I shall cut my losses quickly and move on. I love fantasy (The Last Unicorn, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Howl's Moving Castle), but not this kind, I guess (I'm similarly unenthralled by the works of Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, etc.).

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve!

Meh.

If you look at the reviews for this book, you will see that folks either fall into the love it or hate it crowd. I didn't hate it, but I really, really didn't love it. While I agree there are same languid points in the book, my biggest problems were that I felt nothing for the main character, and was frankly a little disturbed that every woman he met was either sexy or a shrew. I realize the main character is in his late teens, presumably his world view being skewed by hormones - but we have no real feel for the other characters outside the cardboard shadows they cast.

I might give another book in the series a shot - I liked the magic system, thought the world had some potential - but it's not on my TBR list any time soon. ( )

Some interesting ideas, that build on one another, but at times it read like the author was explaining concepts to the reader.
Prose a little awkward.
Certainly serviceable, and I devoured it, so it's good enough I plan to check out the second for high fantasy needs. ( )

A rather bland quest with a steady stream of sound effects written out that sound a little childish when listened to as an audio book. ( )
