Purchased: The Magicians’ Guild (The Black Magician Trilogy Book 1)

“Will the world ever be sick of fantasy girls and magicians?”

Author: Trudi Canavan

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Age: YA+

Released: 4th March 2012 (UK Version)

Purchased this book, which is the first of a trilogy. I’m always looking for good fantasy and this has had high reviews on Amazon, but also seems to be on sale in Waterstones. This is evidently a successful author.

Summary from Waterstones:

—————————–

Each year the magicians of Imardin gather together to purge the city streets of vagrants, urchins and miscreants. Masters of the disciplines of magic, they know that no one can oppose them. But their protective shield is not as impenetrable as they believe. Sonea, angry, frustrated and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, hurls a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. To the amazement of all who bear witness, the stone passes unhindered through the barrier and renders a magician unconscious. The guild’s worst fear has been realised …There is an untrained magician loose on the streets. She must be found before her uncontrolled powers unleash forces that will destroy both her, and the city that is her home.

—————————–

I’m really looking forward to it, though it’s a very typical story, but maybe I need a bit of typical after the previous books?
