The High Lord: The Black Magician Trilogy Book Thr&hellip by Trudi Canavan
In all honesty, this trilogy is amazing! Trudi Canavan has made herself one of the most highly esteemed fiction writers with this debut trilogy full of magic and mystery. It is a classic for any fantasy reader. Timeless.

Nick Spenser is looking for a birthday present for his step mum and stumbles across Bargains, an old and hidden shop. There he finds thousands of glass orbs, each containing an impossibly real image. The shopkeeper, Mr Grey, offers Nick a trade: an orb for one of his sketches. Nick is more than happy to oblige. But later he finds out that his drawing skills have vanished. But that is just the start of his problems, as he is then forced into working for… Read more
