The 16 books of the series describe the changing, often confrontational, relationship between the [[AncientAstronauts genetic descendants of two technologically advanced cultures]], representatives of which have been [[LostColony marooned]] on a sparsely inhabited planet and regressed to the level of the existing inhabitants' primitive technology. Themes of gender stereotyping, prejudice, ethics, economics, environmentalism and politics are explored in the course of the series, which examines the world through the eyes of all its main characters.

** Of course, the so-called book is really just the disorganized ramblings of another exile who came home, who they decided was a genius [[ImNotAHeroIm without his consultation]].

*** Of course, none of this prevented Recluce from using terrorist tactics against civilians in a duchy of Candar in the very first book,nor engaging in piracy in the later books. The suffering of associated order magi is their cross to bear alone.

** Further, there are extremely practical reasons that certain advances we made in technology cannot be used. Firearms, for example, could be disastrous from a tactical standpoint when one relatively weak chaos user (not necessarily even powerful enough to call them a mage) could heat the gunpowder, and internal combustion engines generate raw chaos which is much more powerful in the universe of Recluse than ours. There's a reason that most technology that actually get used requires black Order-imbued iron, and using too much of that creates Chaos concentrations elsewhere in the world. A major criticism of Recluse is that their over-concentration of Order is responsible for the constant war and other social evils of Candar.

* HeroesWantRedheads: This, RedHeadedHero, and FieryRedhead figure prominently throughout the series; and are repeatedly played straight, inverted, subverted, and twisted around various ways that indicate a significant AuthorAppeal.

* ImNotAHeroIm: Most of the main characters are exiles from Recluce (or in one case, Westwind), because they develop strong Order magic powers. They consistently resist being labeled as "order-masters", but insist they're just simple woodworkers/blacksmiths/engineers/etc.
* Through two of the three books he appears in, Justen continually insists that he is not a druid, even after having passed their magical trials to become one. He eventually capitulates and accepts the designation, though only with qualifications (a "sort of druid").
