This book clearifys a few things that were hard to understand.
It does a lot of explaining, which is good for the reader to come to terms with the world that Modesitt is trying to create.
Fall of Angels was quite difficult to read the first time round but near the end of the book it will have you wanting to finish it as fast as you can because it leaves you wanting to know more and more of whats going on in the book itself.
Advice to younge readers like myself would be to read the series twice.Start with Fall of Angels then try and go through the books with the right timming.
You should end up reading Death of Chaos last.

Still another awesome book from Modesitt.

In this novel you gain a clearer vision of how the magic or Order came to be and the fall of the angels, hundreds of years before the birth of Lerris of Recluce.
Here you meet the infamous prophetic angel Ryba, her lover and Order engineer Nylan and Ayrlyn the Order songstress. As they crash land on a world far outside their known universe they struggle to survive in a male dominated society and a planet much too hot for their Sybran blood.
You learn how they built the famous fortress of Westwind on the Roof of the World and how they conquored the trade and respect of a continent.
I enjoyed this book though it was a little hard at times to keep track of names and places and apply them to the rest of the series. The books are not written in order of the story timeline, they jump back and forth between hundreds of years which can be confussing but I find it an interesting take on writting a series.

Three out of Five stars.
