The thrilling follow-up to Scholar - in which, after discovering a coup attempt and preventing a bloody civil war, Quaeryt was appointed princeps of Tilbor - begins a new episode in the young Imager's life. 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.

Quaeryt and Vaelora must restore order to a city filled with chaos and corruption, and do so quickly. The regiment under his command must soon depart to bolster Telaryn's border defenses against a neighboring ruler who sees the volcanic devastation as an opportunity for invasion and conquest.

    " As always, Modesitt shines. He's written literally DOZENS of novels and I've read almost all of them. Of those, I've only read one that I considered less than excellent (Empress of Eternity). Princeps is no exception. Scholar started somewhat slow and wandering, and it was a bit different for the protagonist to already have some reasonable skill in magic. It definitely got better by the end. In Princeps, the action starts right off and keeps you turning page after page. And yet, it's also a very introspective book. The main character is subtly different from most of Modesitt's fantasy characters, probably because he's older and more experienced to start with. He hesitates less to "fix" problems and has fewer qualms about doing so - much like the characters in Modesitt's sci-fi books. True to the fantasy trope, though, the character DOES gain significantly in power, especially in Princeps. It's rather fascinating to read this and connecting the events with some of the things talked about in the previous Imager series. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book - the only thing that frustrated me was the fact that I wasn't expecting it to be a trilogy. Now waiting impatiently for book 3. "

    " A great read in the Imager Portfolio. I greatly admire a writer that causes one to ponder life and the consequences of a characters actions on his morality. Read this further exploit of Quaeryt and Vaelora his bride as they deal with politics and loyalty to their Country. "

    " Another excellent Modesitt addition to the set! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 10/15/2013

    " A good story line, it was a little slow at the beginning, but it filled out nicely, I'm looking forward to the next book. His methodical observations of human nature are always interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timothy Widman | 9/23/2013

    " As usual, an intriguing look at the nature of power, order and politics. Modesitt's books a bit like comfort food for me...they tend to be similar from one to the next, but are always impressive and compelling reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 9/2/2013

    " Annoying that he's only very briefly a princess, but a good story in the classic Modesitt vein -- but Vaelora is much more if a character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ari Pernick | 8/26/2013

    " Good continuation of the series, it gets a bit tedious in the middle before the main transition to a different venue. "

    " the imager series keeps on getting better! love the trials and learning this man has to go through..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LazerWraith | 12/3/2012

    " Good book, but too many ellipses in the dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mf | 10/14/2012

    " This book is a very good mix of politics, people, war, and a bit of magic. It's lower on action than the last one and the story promises more action in the next. The one thing that's a bit off is the title. The story is only partially about being a princes. Another solid imager story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 8/30/2012

    " Very good book, although it really shows quite a bit of the darker side of people. That does tend to make me a bit sad and wary of people, even though it's just a reminder of what people can become given a certain set of restrictions or a great deal of power. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 7/25/2012

    " Good sequel to Scholar>, picking the story line up and carrying the plot forward to a dramatic conclusion. Obviously, there will be another volume (see the ending) in the series. "
