A Imardin è il giorno dell'Epurazione, l'appuntamento annuale durante il quale, su ordine del re, la Corporazione dei maghi scaccia dalla città vagabondi, mendicanti e tutti coloro che sono sospettati di vivere da fuorilegge. E, come ogni anno, gli abitanti dei quartieri poveri si radunano nella piazza del Nord, per protestare, urlando la propria rabbia e lanciando sassi contro i maghi, i quali, però, essendo protetti da una barriera magica, ignorano altezzosamente quella rivolta. Tutto sembra svolgersi secondo un triste ma collaudato copione; poi, d'un tratto, una pietra manda in frantumi la protezione e ferisce un mago. Tra l'esultanza della folla e lo sgomento dei maghi, viene subito individuata la responsabile dell'incredibile gesto: è Sonea, una giovane orfana, che subito dopo fugge via, spaventata dalle conseguenze della sua azione. Ma la Corporazione dei maghi non può permettere che qualcuno dotato di un simile potere sfugga al loro controllo e vuole trovare la ragazzina per convincerla a unirsi a loro e a sottoporsi al necessario addestramento. Tuttavia, all'interno della Corporazione, c'è anche chi trama per sfruttare Sonea e raggiungere così i suoi scopi malvagi'

"She was special, but in a way he could not have guessed. She had magic!" - DNF 67% - I am sorry, but I can't take more of the insipid interactions between these flat and dull characters (also, stupid) who keep running around in this vague and generic world where nuance doesn't exist and where ev
The Magicians' Guild (Black Magician Trilogy, #1), Trudi Canavan The Magicians' Guild is the first fantasy novel in The Black Magician series by Trudi Canavan. Published in 2001, it is followed by The Novice (2002) and The High Lord (2003). The book tells the story of Sonea, a young girl from the s
This is in no way a romance (there is a TINY romance thread). So why am I even mentioning romance? Well. The mechanics of many romances are to bring two people together and have them misunderstand and mistrust each other despite it being obvious to the reader that they belong together. The heart of th Leggi tutto
I was going to put this up on my "currently reading" shelf, but it didn't take me long enough to finish it. Or, perhaps, I read more than I check this website. Either way, this book I just finished half an hour ago is a cute little start to what seems to be a simple and inoffensive fantasy trilogy se Leggi tutto
A protagonist that is super special, and a world apparently divided into slums and powerful rich magic people? I like my fantasy in shades of grey, not black and white, and I'm sick of protagonists that are born more special than other people, rather than character development and hard work making t Leggi tutto
“If this young woman is a natural, we should expect her to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician.” This one started off a bit slow and dragged on a bit but for some strange reason I kept on reading as I felt that it would eventually pay off.

This book was divided into two parts and felt like two different stories to me. Part one would be 'The chase' and part two would be 'The actual story'. Thus I will review both parts seperately. Part One: 2 stars Sonea lives in the slums. She and her family have been put out of their homes by the magic Leggi tutto
This review was written by Manon for RantingDragon.com The redundant beginning Sonea is a dwell that lives in the slums. Everyone in the slums hates the Magicians that live safely, luxuriously and arrogantly up in their Magician’s Guild. Only those of the Houses can become Magicians, and those in the Leggi tutto
Telling the story of Sonea a girl trying to live in a world of division where the magicians rule. Not only is she a girl but she is a commoner who could never be part of such a precious world. Well, things change and in an instant Sonea life changes through no fault of her own but all by accident..
This was a very enjoyable read with an interesting story and some very likeable characters. I particularly enjoyed the chapters about magic and entering other people's minds. Loved the descriptions likening minds to rooms in houses. It was all very interesting and made a change from the usual magic
