The sequel to the New York Times bestselling Princeps, L.E. Modesitt's Imager's Battalion follows magical hero Quaeryt as he leads history's first Imager fighting force into war. Given the rank of subcommander by his wife's brother, Lord Bhayar, the ruler of Telaryn, Quaeryt joins an invading army into the hostile land of Bovaria, in retaliation for Bovaria's attempted annexation of Telaryn. But Quaeryt has his own agenda in doing Bhayar's bidding: to legitimize Imagers in the hearts and minds of all men, by demonstrating their value as heroes as he leads his battalion into one costly battle after another.

Making matters worse, court intrigues pursue Quaeryt even to the front lines of the conflict, as the Imager's enemies continue to plot against him.

The book also continues the love story of Quaeryt and his wife Vaelora, which tends to be a welcome break from the interesting, but long, battle scenes that fill the novel.

It’s not just the overwhelming numbers of enemy forces arrayed against them, but the consistent manipulations by self-serving officers and nobility who manipulate circumstances to force Quaeryt to lead his troops to miraculous success or die trying.
