Can’t Wait Wednesday - The Mage-Fire War by L.E. Modesitt Jr.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

The Mage-Fire War by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
Expected publication: August 13th 2019 by Tor Books

L. E. Modesitt, Jr., continues his bestselling Saga of Recluce with The Mage-Fire War, the third book in a story arc which began with The Mogrel Mage and Outcasts of Order.

Once again, prejudices against the use of chaos magic force Beltur and his companions to flee their refuge in Axalt. The rulers of nearby Montgren have offered them sanctuary and the opportunity to become the Councilors of the run-down and disintegrating town of Haven.

Montegren lacks any mages―white or black―making this seem like the perfect opportunity to start again.

However, Beltur and the others must reinstitute law and order, rebuild parts of the town, deal with brigands―and thwart an invading army.

A new Recluce novel is always cause to celebrate, but having a conclusion to the trilogy that began with The Mongrel Mage and Outcasts of Order is even better.
