Overview


Mageworlds Book Two: Blockaded, restricted, and forgotten--the Mageworlds would never threaten the Republic again. A broken and drifting ship, it's long-dead captain still strapped in the command seat: that's what free-spacers call a starpilot's grave.  When one of these derelict craft appears in the Net, the artificial barrier zone separating the Republic from the Mageworlds, the discovery is no accident.  It's a sign, a warning that the Mageworlds have not forgotten the Republic--and the Magelords make long plans. But the Magelords weren't planning on Beka Rosselin-Metadi. Beka has unfinished business to take care of, and his name is Ebenra D'Caer: the man who arranged her mother's murder.  D'Caer is safe--he thinks--hidden among the Mages on the far side of the Net.  Flying under a false name and false colors, Beka penetrates the Magezone and finds more than anyone expected: the Magelords have discovered a fatal weakness in the Republic's defenses, and are poised to wreak their vengeance on the hated enemy. The Mages are too strong.  They must prevail. Unless one woman in one ship can do the impossible.

    Great series. Some of the scenes and plotlines are unforgettable.

    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)

    For love; for honor; for famil

    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.
