Publisher's Summary

Sonea, former street urchin, now a Black Magician, is horrified when her son, Lorkin, volunteers to assist Dannyl in his new role as Guild Ambassador to Sachaka, a land still ruled by cruel black magicians. When word comes that Lorkin has gone missing Sonea is desperate to find him, but if she leaves the city she will be exiled forever, and besides, her old friend Cery needs her help. Most of his family has been murdered - the latest in a long line of assassinations to plague the leading Thieves. There has always been rivalry, but for the last decade the Thieves have been waging a deadly underworld war, and now it appears they have been doing so with magical assistance.

Fabulous book awful narrator

Trudi Canavan is an incredible author, possibly one of my favourites, and i have regularly enjoyed listening to her previous books. I had already read this book before i purchased the audio book and have to say that the story is a fabulous continuation of the original set of books, with new characters that you love as much as the original. However the narrator for this audio book is awful, although I could forgive the slight variations in the way he pronounces the names as everyone may read them differently, the tone of the voice is wrong for the story, and is in fact very harsh and irritating at times. Because of this i am really struggling to get through the story. I am a huge fan of audio books and will remain to be one, and i am disappointed to recommend to anyone considering purchasing this audio book to stop, listen to the sample and think again. Buy the book and enjoy it in your own voice, unless they produce a new version with a new narrator (fingers crossed).

Traitor Spy Trilogy, looking good!

I loved the Black Magician trilogy and so, i was really excited by the prospect of another instalment! However, though the characters from the trilogy are there, they are overshadowed by newer characters who are just as wonderful! I liked the prequel which was published on audible last year (The Magicians Apprentice) as it fleshed out the background story which i think is one of the most interesting parts of Canavan's world. This takes the story on whilst continuing to explore the history of Sachaka and its relationship with Kyralia - i am looking forward to listening to book 2 in this trilogy, i hope it answers some of the questions raised in this, the first in the new trilogy.
