The Saga of Recluce is a series of fantasy novels by American author L.E. Modesitt, Jr. The series is about the changing, often confrontational, relationship between the genetic descendants of two technologically advanced cultures, representatives of which have been marooned on a sparsely inhabited world and regressed to the level of the existing inhabitants’ primitive technology. Some of the themes dealt with in the series are gender stereotypes, sexism, ageism, racism, ethics, economics, environmentalism and politics.

The Saga of Recluce began in 1991 with The Magic of Recluce. The series is currently ongoing. Although we have provided both the publication and chronological orders, Modesitt himself strongly recommends that the series be read in its publication order. Below is a list of L.E.
