This was the most beautiful book I personally have ever read. The depth and involvement in it is overwhelming.

A new breed of fantasy. Where most authors of the genre have taken the idea of fantasy to the aspects of monsters and wizards who can do anything, Modesitt has gone the other direction, delving into a world based on a balance of forces, order and chaos, he ignites (in a different aspect), the theory of "Without evil, there can be no good".

This book was captivating. I have never encountered such a brilliant piece of work. L. E. Modesitt's books in the Saga of Recluse keeps on getting better and better. Each book seems to overshadow the previous. Yet this book stands out among the rest. In this book Modesitt switches to focus on a mage from the opposite side of his others. Chaos. Chaos was seen as "evil" when viewed through the eyes of order. In this book we see that it is not true. Cerryl is a complex character who values morals more than power. The action in this book does not allow one to put it down for an instant and the characters are intriguing. To watch Cerryl grow and conquer the evil that seemed to give chaos the appearance of being evil was invigorating. The balance between order and chaos is not like the fantasy in other books. Modesitt brings a new twist with different characters discovering this balance and their powers for themselves. This book (and the White Order) show Cerryl's life from a youth and how he moved on toward his destiny. The Colors of Chaos is a classic that will be perpetually praised by and inspire countless fantasy fans and writers.
