Da quando ha assistito alla morte di un uomo per mano del Sommo Lord, Sonea vive giorni di angoscia. E non le è certo di consolazione aver conquistato la fiducia e il rispetto degli altri novizi grazie alle sue eccezionali capacità magiche. Infatti Akkarin non solo le ha rivelato che una minaccia mortale aleggia sulla Corporazione dei maghi e sulla città di Imardin, ma le ha anche mostrato alcuni antichi tomi, in cui viene chiarito il motivo per cui la magia nera è stata bandita: molto tempo addietro, uno dei novizi l'aveva usata contro gli altri maghi della Corporazione e l'esito era stato drammatico. Sonea è confusa: il Sommo Lord l'ha resa partecipe di quei segreti perché è in ansia per il destino della regione di Kyralia o perché vuole servirsi di lei per i suoi oscuri piani? Poi uno schiavo della vicina Sachaka confessa alla ragazza di essere una spia, incaricata di scoprire i punti deboli della Corporazione, e allora Sonea, abbandonato ogni indugio, comprende che, se dovesse succedere qualcosa ad Akkarin, nessun altro potrebbe contrastare i maghi di Sachaka. A meno che lei, a sua volta, non venga iniziata ai misteri della magia nera'

I was so very, very disapointed with this ending, it was geniunely abismal, and I loved the second book, I though it was down to earth and just about right. This, this piece of poorly plotted abomination ruined it, it's almost as if when she was writing it Canavan just thought; "Actually, do you kno Leggi tutto
This last book in the trilogy is the best by far. I really enjoyed it. I'd recommend reading the trilogy together and in order, which is probably something normal people would do anyway. I think while each one has a complete story arc, they form a much more complex and satisfying whole all together. Leggi tutto
I now have a YouTube channel that I run with my brother, called 'The Brothers Gwynne'. Check it out - The Brothers Gwynne “He had given her too much. He had given her everything.” The High Lord starts one year after the ending of the previous book in the series, so the immediate results of those e Leggi tutto
It wasn't that complicated a plot, or that original a premise -- to be honest, much of the setting reminded me of Raymond E. Feist's Krondor mixed with his magicians on Kelewan. Regardless, I enjoyed reading the books and read them very quickly: one a day, just about. They're light, easy reads, in m Leggi tutto
Actual Rating 4.5 I just could not stop read this one until it was finished. I was like this from start to finish: So much has happen and I can't even write anything remotely coherent. I ned time to process this then I'll come back and try to give a proper review.
I enjoyed these books up until the end which ruined the whole thing for me.
This is going to be a looooooooong review. First, I must say that had I read this trilogy as a teenager, I’d probably have loved it. However, being a literature scholar and well, slightly older, I can’t overlook its flaws, and I am infuriated by the fact that most of them to me, are due to a poor ed Leggi tutto
*MAJOR SPOILERS!!* I'm writing this review without reading the ones below. I just finished reading the book, so you might realize I'm still affected by a lot of what just happened. It took a day to read each book, and every day I was more and more interested on the fates of Sonea, Rothen, Dannyl, Cer Leggi tutto
