The Stars Asunder

A New Novel of the Mageworlds

Mageworlds

Debra Doyle and James D. MacDonald

Tor Books

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 war--with themselves.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

She was the largest family ship that could actually touch the soil of Eraasi. The merchant ships she escorted were bigger--huge constructs, hold-swollen with cargo--but they never left orbit. The shuttles that would bring up the flats and bales and crates of tradeware clustered like nestlings on the burnt ground next to the Ribbon's protective bulk.Arekhon Khreseio sus-Khalgath
