Il giovane mago Lorkin è riuscito a riconquistare la fiducia delle Traditrici di Sachaka e le ha convinte a condividere con lui il loro segreto più prezioso: l'incantesimo per creare pietre magiche. In cambio di un simile privilegio, la regina delle Traditrici chiede a Lorkin di andare, come loro portavoce, nel regno di Sachaka a di stringere un patto con le Terre Alleate. Tuttavia, non appena arriva a corte, Lorkin viene rinchiuso in prigione, destinato a rimanervi finché non si deciderà a rivelare ciò che ha scoperto. Il mago non ha alcuna intenzione d'infrangere il suo giuramento, perché ha capito che il re vuole usare quel sortilegio proprio per eliminare le Traditrici...

***Spoilers may follow!!*** Hmmm...Hard to rate this book, I REALLY wanted to like it as I loved the magicians guild trilogy, but I have to say this book was pretty unremarkable, the plot struggled along at a snail’s pace, nothing happens in the first half and then ALL the action is crammed into the Leggi tutto
Hmm. This was extremley hard to rate. This is the final book in a series I have been reading on and off since school. I am very sentimental about these books and even now, over a decade after reading the first novel, I feel a strong sense of loyalty and fondness for these characters. Unfortunately th Leggi tutto
Spoilers I wasn't impressed with this. It was slow paced, the majority of the characters were bland and I wasn't interested in the central plot. The conflict/war between Sachaka and the Traitors made for tedious reading. Sonea, Cery, Anyi, Tayend and Regin were the only decent characters. The others Leggi tutto
Good read this one but it this book can not compare to the "High Lord" as an end book of a trilogy. I almost feel a bit disappointed but that has to do with my maybe unrealistically high expectations. It keeps the same level as the previous 2 books but it feels a bit flat( like the other two). The f Leggi tutto
** Spoilers and opinions follow. Not good. I can stomach an anti-drug campaign in a book, but only if it isn't pointlessly thrown in like it is here. The drug 'Roet' had a distinct subplot, but it never amounted to anything or affected the main plot, I was expecting some kind of twist, or meaning. No Leggi tutto
I'm really glad I persevered through to the end of this trilogy. The first two books set up the world as it has been for centuries, which was a bit tedious because we'd already had that history lesson in a much more compelling way. But finally in this book, things change. I'm not sure it needed a wh Leggi tutto
I loved the Black Magician Trilogy but as much as I try to, I can't bring myself to like Traitor Spy. I can't emphasise how annoyed I was with Lorkin. He seems very much like a male-version of Bella who falls for a girl at first sight and all of a sudden, it's I'will-do-anything-for-her. Okay, that' Leggi tutto
4'5/5 estrellas Me ha gustado mucho. Tenía mogollón de ganas de leer el final de esta trilogía y me a encantado. Si le tengo que poner alguna pena es que no me ha gustado el final y el final de un personaje en concreto tampoco, pero el resultado de la trama principal si que me gustó y del resto de pe Leggi tutto
So here we are. After years of patience the Traitor Spy trilogy has come to a close. Was it everything that I hoped it would be? Well, mostly. Like other books in the series, the strong dialogue and character development continues, as does a reduction in the level of action scenes that one would nor Leggi tutto
Yes, it's true, it doesn't live up to the Black Magician trilogy or The Age of Five, and, let's be honest, the big, Akkarin-shaped hole was never going to be filled, but there's no point going on about it - one just has to take this trilogy for what it is. It did feel a bit unplanned (far too many id Leggi tutto
