This is the seventh and final book in the Mageworlds series. This book continues from book six in that it goes back 500 years before the first 5 books and tells the tale of how the Mageworlds and the Adept worlds came into contact. It is told from the Mageworlds point of view. There is more action action than in the last book and as with all the books in this series a good variety of characters both good and evil. I recommend this book and this series to all fans of Space Opera.
I liked the Mageworlds series, but the two prequals, of which this is the second, were boring. Didn't finish either of them.
