Inside Cover: Once again, prejudices against the use of chaos magic force Beltur and his companions to flee their refuge in Axalt. The rulers of nearby Montgren have offered them sanctuary and the opportunity to become the Councilors of the run-down and disintegrating town of Haven.
Montegren lacks any mages―white or black―making this seem like the perfect opportunity to start again.
However, Beltur and the others must re-institute law and order, rebuild parts of the town, deal with brigands―and thwart an invading army.
The Mage-Fire War is the third story in this arc in the series (Saga of Recluce) . This takes up right where the last book Outcast of Order left off. Once again I was not disappointed and enjoyed reading this book. I read it twice. The magical battles have been well worth the wait for this book.
The councilors of Haven decided that they would rename the town to Fairhaven after they broke away from the Duchess of Montgren. The next Saga of Recluce book is Fairhaven Rising. This takes place some sixteen years after the end of The Mage-Fire War, and the main character is not Beltur. ~~ Craig Dyer
