From the Publisher:

Although Rhennthyl is the son of a leading wool merchant, he has spent years becoming a journeyman painter. With his skill and diligence, Rhenn stands to be considered for the status of master artisan. Then, his entire life is transformed when his master patron is killed in a flash fire, and Rhenn discovers he is an imager?one of the few in the entire world who can visualize things and make them real.||He must leave his family and join the Collegium of Imagisle. Imagers live separately from the rest of society because of their abilities (they can do accidental magic even while asleep), and because they are both feared and vulnerable. In this new life, Rhenn discovers that all too many of the ?truths? he knew were nothing of the sort. Every day brings a new threat to his life.

Author Bio
L.E. Modesitt
Born in 1943 as Leland Exter, L. E. Modesitt studied poetry at Williams College in Massachusetts, graduating with a B.A. in 1965. He joined the navy as a pilot that same year, eventually attaining the rank of lieutenant before leaving in 1969. He began graduate studies at the University of Denver in 1970, but left for the world of politics, working on the campaign trail. His first story was published in 1973, the same year that he became a legislative assistant first for U.S. Congressman Bill Armstrong and then for Ken Kramer. Modesitt married Christina Gribben in 1977, and the couple eventually had eight children. Briefly, he held a position at Georgetown University as a lecturer, but in 1981, he went to work for the Environmental Protection Agency. Modesitt's first novel, THE FIRES OF PARATIME, was published in 1982. He has since published a number of series and stand-alone novels, including the highly regarded Recluse series. In 1989, Modesitt left Washington, D.C., where he had lived since starting at the E.P.A., and met a lyric soprano whom he married (he and his first wife were divorced several years earlier). Modesitt's 1994 novel OF TANGIBLE GHOSTS, alludes to something of a fictionalized version of the couple's romance in the context of its larger concerns. That novel's sequel, THE GHOST OF THE REVELATOR, follows the heroes--a professor and his singer wife--as they visit Utah, a permanent move that the Modesitts made themselves in 1993.
