Mageworlds Book One: The war with the Mageworlds is over. Now it's time for the real struggle to begin. Freebooter at heart, spacer by trade, Beka Rosselin-Metadi doesn't want to hear about her father whose rugged generalship held back the Mageworlds--or her highborn mother whose leadership has held the galaxy together ever since. Beka pilots spacecraft--as far from her famous family as possible, thanks very much. Then Beka's mother is assassinated on the Senate floor, and her father offers her Warhammer, prize ship from his own freebooting youth--if she'll use it to deliver the assassins to him "off the books."Looking for assassins has a tendency to make assassins look for you. In short order Beka's arranged her own very public death and adopted a new identity; now all she has to do is leave a trail of kidnappings and corpses across five star systems, and blow the roof off the strongest private fortress in the Galaxy. If her own family can just get off her case long enough...!

One of my favorite space operas makes it way to the digital world. Since it's original release in 1992 I have retread Price of the Stars at least a dozen times. If you are a scifi or space opera fan give this a read.
Think a cross between star wars and star trek
One of my favorite books of all time. I love rereading it!
Great series in eBook finally.
I have had this Mageworlds series in paperback so long, I am afraid to open the books again. In addition to the ease of carrying it with me in my iBooks library to read on my iPad makes my day.
