The Mage-Fire War by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Very much like the rest of the fantasy series, this one continues the close-cropped saga of Beltur and his investment in making Haven, soon to be renamed Fairhaven, into a safe and secure place for outcasts like himself.
You know, welcoming.
Of course, it's locked on a road between two nations that think it's their own stomping ground.
Like many of these enjoyable books, this one sings with to some rather fascinating mage-and-warrior battles with detailed tactics and strategy.
There's nothing truly new here, but I frankly don't care. I read these for the sheer enjoyment of them and whatever new stuff I learn goes right into the enormous tapestry of this world's history. It's quite impressive in its way.
