Purchased: The Novice (The Black Magician Trilogy Book 2)

“An intensive course in magic”

Author: Trudi Canavan

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Age: YA+

Released: 4th March 2010 (UK Version)

Even after the failings of the first book, the second book still has some hope. I feel that as Trudi Canavan’s debut novel was flawed, her writing can only get better.

I’m also curious as to why this series has sold so many copies.

Warning! May contain spoilers for the first book!

—————————–

Imardin is a city of dark intrigues and deadly politics, where those who wield magic wield power. Into this established order has blundered a young street-girl with extraordinary magical gifts.

Adopted by the Magicians’ Guild, her life is changed forever – but for better or for worse? Sonea knew that she’d face a tough time training within the Magicians’ Guild but she little realised the level of animosity she would face from her fellow novices.

The sons and daughters of the most powerful families in the realm, her classmates seem determined to see her fail – at whatever cost. But in accepting the protection of the guild’s high lord, Sonea may have embraced an even bleaker fate. For High Lord Akkarin harbours a secret that is far darker than his magician’s robes.
