This was a strange story. It is sort of a magic/science fiction. There are ships to travel beteen the stars, but certain people can travel between stars by just going into this void and coming out somewhere else. Weird.
There is a group of super rich merchants and a group of Mages (wizards), and both groups have competing interests among themselves and each other. At times the Mages need to fight to build up the power they need to do magic, emotional power, I guess. Sometimes they kill each oth
I liked the Mageworlds series, but the two prequals, of which this is the second, were boring. Didn't finish either of them.
