Another of the Recluce series, this time based initially in Recluce and then Hamor. Rahl is an apprentice scrivener who belittles his own order abilities, and as a result finds himself in deeper and deeper trouble, eventually exiled to Hamor. There he finds a mentor in Taryl, mage and ex-Triad.

The story uses familiar themes from other Recluce books - Rahl is another scrivener, is trained in arms as a Recluce exile, and sees duty as a city guard similar to the White Order stories. He's a different character to the other Recluce story heroes though, if somewhat more flawed than some. The familiarity detracts somewhat, even if it is nice to fall comfortably again into the familiar world of Recluce. It wasn't until reading on into "Mage-Guard of Hamor" that I really began to enjoy Rahl and his story.

I'm going to read Natural Ordermage again though...
