Rift in the Races (Book 2 of The Galactic Mage Series) follows the continuing story of powerful Prosperion sorcerer Altin Meade and feisty Earth-fleet officer Orli Pewter in the fight against the mysterious alien Hostiles.
The Earth fleet is now moving to take advantage of its recent victory. With better combat strategies and Prosperion wizards only a blink away, the time has come to finish the job they set out to do: destroying the Hostiles. But complications arise.
Altin's discovery of space-traveling humans from distant Earth has threatened ancient and foundational beliefs for the people of his world. The shockwaves from this revelation begin to unravel a long-standing but precarious balance of power. With her eyes to the sky and all its galactic possibilities, Prosperion's War Queen soon finds her realm on the brink of chaos.
Together, Altin and Orli must once again find a way to mediate the forces of pride, frustration and fear between their two peoples, or both planets will be destroyed. What ensues is an action-packed, laser-blasting magic ride through space, war, romance and conspiracy - a thrilling tale of alliances and alien hostility.
Unfortunately, sometimes "alien hostility" is a matter of perspective.
Rift in the Races is the second book in The Galactic Mage series. Book 1, The Galactic Mage, and Book 3, Hostiles, are now available. Book 4, as yet untitled, is underway and expected in 2014.

ORCS & ORDS BEWARE!!!
Silly and unfocussed
Overall this book is written like a young adult novel, which would be fine except for the frequent f*%$ bombs that just don't match the silly subject matter and story. The writer is sloppy and inconsistent in his use of the magic system, changing the rules in an ad hoc manner as needed to fit each new silly arbitrary conflict. Much of the book could be cut out as irrelevant to the main plot line... it's trash novel filler material.The first Galactic Mage book was cute, creative and a fun read. This fails to add anything new, but instead flops around like a fish out-of-water from one cliche to the next leaving me gasping for meaningful traction. I had to give up after about 9 hours of predictable groans.
Yes, and his performance in this book is good too. Garbage in, garbage out.
OMG. Kill off the stupid Captain Asad. Not showing any character growth at all for the main characters to still be dealing with this shallow one-note, boring, repetitive character
