The star systems of the Mageworlds are linked by magic. Only when trained Mages have found a Way to a new world can the great colonizing and trading ships follow. But beyond the furthest worlds is a great gap, beyond which, hint the legends, lie vast, rich human worlds long lost to the Mages' trade.
Now the most powerful Mage-circle ever is determined to walk to those worlds, to reunite humanity's sundered branches and make a fortune in the process. And young Arekhon sus-Khalgath, scion of the most powerful of the clans of starship builders, has left his inheritance to join them.
But immense forces are arrayed against them. Blood will be spilled, and dynasties thrown down, before the worlds of mankind are again united. For the first time in living memory, the Mages will go to warwith themselves.

This book is by far better tha 'Star Wars: The Phantom Mence', or 'Attack of the Clones'. Just becase it has a complex plotline that one of your meger brain power cannot follow, it dose NOT make this book a boring soap opera. All great storys need time to devlope, and this is no excepition. GIVE IT UP!!!
I was quick to buy The Stars Asunder when I saw it was compared with the Star Wars series and other greats of Science Fiction. Upon receiving it, I quickly delved into it and was quickly disapointed by it's progression and character development. It took about 150 pages to really get rolling and then it was poor at best. If you are looking for excitment and suspence, look elsewhere.
