Praise for Outcasts of Order
“Readers will delight in following [Beltur and Jessyla's] story, from the magical to the mundane, even as they slowly realize that city can never truly be home, either.”—Seattle Book Review
“Through [Beltur's] travels you feel . . . the complexity of relationships, good and bad, that make up a life.”—Booklist
“One of the things that makes Recluce special is that mages have to earn a living. . . . It is this relevance and relatability which makes the Recluce series one of the best being published today. It is also why I will nominate it for the Best Series Hugo again this year.”—SF Revu
“One of my favorite books in the Saga of Recluce.”—The Arched Doorway
“In crafting this convincing portrait of a genuinely humble man guided by his clear-cut, innate sense of right and wrong, Modesitt shows how apparent weaknesses can become sources of great strength. And while most of his stories explore complex philosophical issues without pedantry or prejudice, this trilogy is doing so with particular thoroughness. Always a pleasure to abide in Modesitt's universe, if only for a few hours or days.”—Kirkus
