Summary

Following The Magicians' Guild and The Novice comes the third book in the phenomenally popular Black Magician Trilogy, from international Number One best-selling author Trudi Canavan.
Over 3 million Trudi Canavan copies sold worldwide.
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?
Praise for Trudi Canavan:
"Epic, vivid and believable." (Guardian)

Absolutely Gripping

I enjoyed the previous two volumes in this trilogy a lot, but this final volume is absolutely gripping. Some excellent plot twists, a bravura ending, I really couldn't stop listening to this.

The density of plot in this final volume means that in some ways I would have preferred an unabridged version (at time of writing, not currently available on Audible) but after sampling both Richard Aspel's accented narration of the unabridged volumes and Kellie Bright/Samantha Bond's narration of the abridged editions I definitely preferred the latter.

I'm new to Trudi Canavan but will definitely be moving on to her next trilogy.This one has been one of my best Audible purchases.

A gripping read

I couldn't wait to get back in the car to carry on listening to this book. I wish there were more in the series after this one.
