    This book contains the most unexpected plot twist and change that will leave any fan of the Mageworlds books breathless or in tears. 'When loyalty and treason wear the same face- your greatest enemy may be your only friend.'

    The end of an era

    The third book of the original Mageworlds trilogy, BY HONOR BETRAY'D (By Honor Betray'D (Mageworlds, Book 3)) is the fantastic conclusion to a fantastic series.

    When STARPILOT'S GRAVE ended, the Mageworlds' fleet had won; their surprise attack had taken down interstellar communications, they'd broken the Adepts Guild and the Republic's capitol world had fallen. The Resurgence and their Magelords had done almost everything they'd set out to do.

    Except break the Rosselin-Metadi family. Beka, Ari and Own are still at large and causing trouble, to say nothing of their father, Jos Metadi, who had beaten the Mages once already. Metadi's protege, Jervas Gil still has a few ships and Llannat Hyfid, the Adept who just might be a Mage has her own Magebuilt Deathwing - and maybe the Professor's mission (whatever it was.)

    This book finishes the tale started in THE PRICE OF THE STARS, revealing more and more of the complex web of conflicting loyalties, conflicting cultures and conflicting beliefs. I've said it for the other two books - this is what space opera was meant to be. Doyle and MacDonald finish this trilogy in a spectacular way - the big reveal and the finale are absolutely amazing. The 'big reveal' and the final answers and resolution to the death of Perada Rosselin and everything her assassination set into motion are unpredictable and well worth the wait.

    This series defined a genre for me and I know it will for you, too.
