Alien Arrivals by John Daulton
The populations on several worlds have discovered themselves to be but part of a galaxy filled with other sentients. Book 4 of the Galactic Mage Series begins a new phase of existence for the denizens of those planets, and it follows the lives of Altin and Orli, Roberto, Queen Karroll, Blue Fire, and, of course, Pernie, as they begin to discover what roles they have in the redefined universe.
Other familiar characters also appear, including the return of Black Sander and the ever-malignant marchioness. Their motives and machinations become increasingly clear, and their ambition, patience and cunning will be put in pursuit of greater power and influence. It�s a new age in the wide, wide galaxy, and the opportunities are endless � for everyone.
