For lovers of Dune and Xanth, a mage family saga set among the stars.
Thousands of years ago, mages on Earth were hated and feared. To avoid persecution, they built a starship and became among the first humans to colonize deep space. But the rest of humankind caught up with them, and their clan was forced to split up in order to survive. Now, each family lives in secrecy to avoid persecution and enslavement.
Carina Lin is a mage with a mission. After growing up as an orphaned slum brat she enlisted as a merc, but all she wants is to escape the soldiering life and find other mages like her.
Her searching has led her to the home planet of one of the most powerful clans in the galaxy. Here, she hopes to finally be reunited with her kin, but it isn’t going to be easy. If her powers are revealed, she risks capture and torture.
To add to Carina’s danger, galactic war is brewing. The opposing forces are on the look out for veterans to draft into the fight.
Carina must find her people and avoid being sucked back into space warfare. If she fails, she’ll lose her reason for living, and perhaps her life.
Daughter of Discord is book one in the dark, exciting, space fantasy, Star Mage Saga.
