A great read that stands the test of time!

I first read this book some years ago and it a testament to the story that I somehow return to it once a year even though I no longer read much science fiction. This wonderful space opera introduces a wonderful cast of characters and a suitably convoluted plot to carry through the series. Space battles, mysterious enemies with unknown powers, sibling dramas and voyages of personal discovery- the Mage Worlds series has them all! I especially love that the main character is Beka, a rebellious young woman who left home rather than continue her training as the hereditary ruler to a dead planet. When her mother is assassinated, Beka starts a quest to hunt down the killers and ends up saving the galaxy. Of course, the saving the galaxy part doesn't happen until later in the series, but the cornerstones are all laid in this first book. A great read that stands the test of time- 5 stars!
