Again there is nothing like this book!,
This review is from: The Novice: Book 2 of the Black Magician (Black Magician Trilogy) (Paperback)
The Novice, the second book in the trilogy, continues the story of Sonea, Rothen, Ceryni, Lorlen and the High Lord Akkarin. After discovering a little secret Sonea, Rothen and Lorlen live in fear of the High Lord. As well as that, Sonea is having difficulties with her fellow novice's in the Magicians Guild. What will happen to her in the next few years...?
Again Trudi Canavan manages to knock my socks off with an absolutely fantastic book ( and yes im running out of good adjectives to describe this brilliant book). I LOVE the way Trudi writes, as I find myself easily lost in the Land of Kyralia and the Magicians Guild. I am on to the last book (The High Lord) now and no doubt I will weep for ages when i have no more excellent books about Sonea and the Magicians Guild to read.
This is a book that I expect I will re-read for the rest of my life. I love the characters and will be thoroughly upset when I have nothing about them left to read. Again if you like fantasy books and authors such as Garth Nix and Philip Pullman then you will LOVE this book as I do.
