L E Modesitt, Jr, lives in Cedar City, Utah.
"An intriguing fantasy in a fascinating world. . . . Modesitt presents an interesting study of Chaos versus Order, Good versus Evil . . . and the attractions each of them has for all of us." --Robert Jordan on The Magic of Recluce
"Saryn is as actualized a protagonist as you will ever read, and the plotting of the novel is superb. This is one novel you won't want to put down until you cross the finish line." --RT Bookreviews (4 and 1/2 stars) on Arms-Commander
"Modesitt does a nice job of filling the reader in on what comes before. . . . Depth of character is Modesitt's greatest strength." --SFRevu on Arms-Commander
"Arms-Commander is another solid effort by Modesitt, one that should please long-time fans. Here's to hoping that we'll have the opportunity to read more about the Angels and how their coming changed the world forever." --Pat's Fantasy Hotlist
"Modesitt renders the people and places of Recluce and Hamor . . . with diligent attention to detail, treading the narrow line between exquisite world-building and overbearing verbosity." --Publishers Weekly on Natural Ordermage
"Modesitt's subtext is power and responsibility, explored both through the action-packed main plot and through Kharl's legal studies . . . . This thoughtful work should appeal to all readers of fantasy." --VOYA on Ordermaster
