The Mongrel Mage (Saga of Recluce #19) - L. E. Modesitt, Jr.

The first novel in a new story arc in the bestselling epic fantasy Saga of Recluce

For over a thousand years, Order and Chaos have molded the island of Recluce. The Saga of Recluce chronicles the history of this world with world-building detail and an ingenious and disciplined magic system. L. E. Modesitt, Jr. returns to his longest and bestselling fantasy series with volume nineteen, which marks the beginning of a new story arc.

In the world of Recluce, powerful mages can wield two kinds of magic — the white of Chaos or the black of Order. Beltur, however, has talents not seen in hundreds of years that blend both magics.

On the run from a power-hungry white mage, Beltur is taken in by Order mages, who set him on the path to discover and hone his own unique gifts and in the process find a home.

However, when the white mage he fled attempts to invade his newly adopted city, Beltur must hope his new-found power will be enough to save them all.
