Currently Reading: The High Lord (The Black Magician Trilogy Book 3)

“End of a trilogy, end of a world”

Author: Trudi Canavan

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Age: YA+

Released: 4th March 2010 (UK Version)

I finally have time read the third book of this trilogy. A lot of authors will save their best for last, and Trudi Canavan sure looks like she has something up her sleeve.

It’s been building, and building up to this moment. Let’s hope the book is as exciting as the cover will have you believe. It hasn’t been the best series so far, but I’m hoping the third book will answer a lot of the issues.

See my reviews of the first and second book.

Read the blurb below! May contain spoilers for the first and second books!





In the city of Imardin, where those who wield magic wield power, a young street-girl, adopted by the Magician’s Guild, finds herself at the centre of a terrible plot that may destroy the entire world …

Sonea has learned much at the magicians’ guild and the other novices now treat her with a grudging respect. But she cannot forget what she witnessed in the High Lord’s underground room – or his warning that the realm’s ancient enemy is growing in power once more.

As Sonea learns more, she begins to doubt her guildmaster’s word. Could the truth really be as terrifying as Akkarin claims, or is he trying to trick her into assisting in some unspeakably dark scheme?

  1. I read the first two a few years ago, and loved it. I re-read it recently and was..well, more than a little disappointed.
    The High Lord, however, I LOVE. How are you liking it so far?

    • I’m liking the book. This is probably the best one of the trilogy, even though it reads like YA, rather than an Epic Fantasy.

      I’m about halfway through it now. Fingers crossed the ending is good as well. :P
