Assassin’s Price by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Always enjoyable, if rarely unpredictable, this latest Imager Portfolio moves away from the Imager PoVs and instead gives us an in-depth look at the son of a Rex and his rise as a new Rex, himself.
This isn't a problem. At all. It moves us along with political and romantic themes, assassination plots, the problems of laws and taxes. The fish out of water feel is strong with this one.
At no point did I get bored. That's the great thing about this author. His writing is comforting even when it's in the middle of battle, assassination, or a lengthy discourse on taxes. I can and continue to read these without getting tired, so that says something.
