Imager's Battalion (Imager Portfolio) - L. E. Modesitt I need to remember that L.E. Modesitt is best read in intermittent doses. I read Princeps (Imager Portfolio #5) and Imager's Battalion back to back. While I enjoyed both books, I found myself skimming through the philosophizing and description dumps in Imager's Battalion and getting much more impatient with it than the first.

I do think this series is becoming less compelling as it continues.
