A Working of Stars

Book 7, Mageworlds - The Next Novel in the Sweeping Mageworld Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The new novel in the sweeping Mageworlds series.

On the planet Entibor, Arekhon sus-Khalgath sus Peledaen has found shelter and domestic tranquility with his old love, Elaeli Inadi, at the price of what he had left behind: a dispersed and shattered Mage-Circle, an estranged brother who had tried to kill him, and a homeworld on the cusp of massive cultural upheaval.

Arekhon finds himself impelled homeward by strange dreams and prophetic visions. The Great Working—the effort to do the unthinkable and reunite a galaxy long sundered by the Gap Between—remains incomplete, left unfinished in the aftermath of the dissolution of Arehkon's Mage-Circle. But too much energy and too many lives have been poured into the Working already; and it cannot end so long as any of the Circle members remain alive and bound into it.

Home, unfortunately, isn't a safe place for Arehkon to be at the moment. For Eraasi has changed—and the great fleet families at the center of the Eraasian culture are girding for war.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 01, 2002 – Hold on to your phasers and space helmets, Trekkies and Star Wars fans all: here comes the latest Mageworld installment from Doyle and Macdonald about a rousing attempt to reunite an entire galaxy that's been magically sundered by the Gap Between. For the uninitiated, though, arriving in the middle of this complicated series can be daunting. Scattered across planetary systems 100 light years apart, remnants of great Magelord Garrod syn-Aigal sus-Demaizen's wizardly Mage-Circle, shattered by the treachery of Kief Diasul, are beginning to stir. Their leader, Arekhon sus-Khalgath sus-Peledaen, beset by prophetic dreams of reactivating the Great Working, is now on the planet Entibor, serving his lover, Elaeli, as her security chief. He traces the exiled members of Garrod's Mage-Circle and, abetted by a mysterious woman Void-Walker, they launch a dizzying expedition bent on returning to his home world, Eraasi, to defeat the vast power of Arekhon's estranged brother, Natelth, and his conniving scientist sister, Isayana. Besides the jaw-breaking character names and the violent bloodletting of the "workings" needed to move a chase-oriented plot along, keeping the planetary locales straight can be as taxing as untangling the various shifting relationships among the star-lord, agricultural and merchant families. Nonetheless, the authors occasionally manage a bright note of genuine human warmth in the chilly reaches of outer space, as well as offering plenty of action in this rapid-fire blend of sorcery and SF.
