Like this series immensely. Pieces of this series have stayed with me. Young Bekka putting a garden slug in the salad of a man she did not like. I was tempted to do this once with a giant tomato worm, but I was afraid the worm might get hurt. The strange magic of the Adepts. Lyndon Hardy this is not. Questions How far is too far? Does the end justify the means? The frightening hell world that leaves me humming "Hotel California" Characters and plot both interest. Usually one dominates. Read the series if Star Wars Star Trek Heinlein Dickson Bujold Vinge Busby Cherryh (Rimrunners more than Foreigner)

STARPILOT'S GRAVE is the sequel to THE PRICE OF THE STARS and it takes the dynamic characters and rich universe of the first book to a whole new level. Away from Republic space, inside the war-ravaged and violently pacified Mageworlds, Beka Rosselin-Metadi and Nyls Jessan continue the mission Beka's father gave her: to find the people who had her mother assassinated. It seems simple, right? Not hardly. Beka and Jessan discover that her mother's murder was the start of something bigger, something darker than just politics. Beka's brother Ari is separated from his friend and protector, the Adept Llannat Hyfid...who is being taught forbidden magecraft by a ghost. The youngest brother, Owen, is growing less and less comfortable in his role for the Adept's Guild and Beka's father, the General himself, goes off on a mission of his own - and his new aide might just be out to kill him. Meanwhile, Jervas Gil and his border fleet know war is coming...but they aren't as ready as they think. This is what a sequel should be. Like the first, it's fantastic space opera full of mystic powers, arcane duels, blaster fights and fast spaceships. The whole story has a feel of awe and mystery to it while remaining visceral and immediate. The universe is falling apart and no one seems to know why. The book expands the story and the plot; instead of just focusing the story around Beka, the rest of the cast (already very developed) get their stories fleshed out. The story moves fast and all the characters get plenty of screen-time and when you finally put it down, you're left wanting more.
