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.

    " And... here we go again. I really hoped it wouldn't happen, but my hunch was far away from being wrong. Trudi Canavan is a master of making a book-long intro of the story. First volume of Traitor Spy Trilogy is just over 500+ pages long book of nothing really happening. All the excitment, danger and risk that you might expect is close to zero. So what do we get? We have mages we've already known from the Black Magician Trilogy, we have a plotline that's less interesting than soap opera's script and a very little hope the next volume is gonna be a better one. I don't want fireworks, but for God's sake, I wouldn't mind some decent story to read. "

    " Again another great book by Trudi Canavan. I am a big fan I have to say. I now look forwar to May ? when the 2nd book in this trilogy The Rouge is published. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/6/2014

    " The story is quite diverting, not too intellectual but interesting enough to keep me reading to the end. "

    " The Black Magician Trilogy is a series that I couldn't stop reading until I had finished them. Reading this book filled me with nostalgia for the characters from the original trilogy and I liked learning about what happened to them. The new mysteries introduced in The Ambassador's Mission caught my interest initially but as the book went on, I found some story-lines were getting tedious and I couldn't wait for them to wrap up. All in all, a okay read :) "

    " Even though this is a new trilogy that takes place 20 years after "The Black Magician" trilogy, the transition is seamless. Most characters have retained well-established roles (Rothen), other characters are being given the chance to grow (Regin), and minor characters (Savara) show up in places that make sense. Fabulous! So few series' authors can do this with skill. Canavan does and does it beautifully! "

    " My rating is actually a 4.5...only because it took me a little while to really get into all of the main story lines. I was really intrigued by the plots involving Sonea and her son Lorkin, especially after Lorkin became involved with Tyvara. But the plot with Dannyl the historian and the plot with Cery the thief took a good 70 pages or so to really start to get into. I mean, I liked Dannyl and enjoyed his enthusiasm for history, but once he was separated from Lorkin, I actually sort of lost interest in what was going on with him in his search to find Lorkin. Anyway, I discovered Trudi Canavan after watching an author guide episode of Sword & Laser on YouTube, and I'm glad I started reading. Yes, this is her second trilogy, but I honestly like that I could get into the character, understand the world, and the magic system without having read the first trilogy. That's really nice. However, having said that, I now know that I will be finishing up the Traitor Spy trilogy and then going back to read the original trilogy. "

    " A great continuation of this story. The 0.5 novel Magician's Apprentice proved to be a perfect prequel to this series. "

    " Despite the low rating, I did enjoy reading this. But I don't appreciate it. "

    " I enjoyed this book, and I do think I'll keep reading these. "

    " me gusto bastante aunque no tanto como los 3 primeros "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Brassington | 9/13/2013

    " I had issues with the pacing; some bits were too slow, and some went too fast. Occasionally, it just went on and on and on about things I lost interest in. An all right start; hopefully the rest of the trilogy will be a little more exciting and well paced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 3/16/2013

    " Following the story set in the Black Magician Trilogy this book keeps the same premises in the same universe. I don't quite enjoy the story being set so much in Sachakan tough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gabbie | 9/19/2012

    " Not as good as The Black Magician Trilogy but I'm excited for the other two books. It's great "seeing" the old characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Digit | 6/23/2012

    " I'm not sure where the bad reviews are coming from, this is just like the first series. I don't see any departures. If you're a fan of the first series, you'll be a fan of this one as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JJ DeBenedictis | 6/8/2012

    " This is not, to my mind, a strong book, but it's a pretty good book. If you like Brandon Sanderson, you might like this very much. It had a nicely imagined world but I found the characters a bit two-dimensional. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonny | 4/15/2012

    " A little too much like the 1st series and I question the need for more gay characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anahita | 3/27/2012

    " disappointing :( I hope the other two in the series are better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 1/26/2012

    " Not a bad start to the sequel trilogy following The Black Magician, but not quite up to BM. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teryl | 6/20/2011

    " I find the writing and story line quite young adult, but enjoy the plot line and the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 6/5/2011

    " Wonderful start of the conclusion of the world we got to know and love in the Black Magician triology.
    This book is a bit slow, but I have great expectations for the triology! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 5/31/2011

    " I really enjoyed this as a sequel, am looking forward to reading Rogue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stargrave | 5/19/2011

    " A decent story even if you haven't read any of the other books in the world, but it would probably be much more significant and relevant if you had. Once again I'm fooled by a series #1 not really being a #1. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crusi | 4/19/2011

    " f**ing brilliant. Trudi Canavan is my favourite author of this decade, hands down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/16/2011

    " Entertaining and easy to read. The plot isn't quite as fast paced or exciting as The Black Magician's Trilogy, but it is still interesting enough to keep the attention. I shall be buying and reading the next in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 3/18/2011

    " I was disappointed with this book. After reading the Black Magician Trilogy, I was expecting a cracker from the author. I am hoping that it's the first book in the new series and she's setting up the scenes and the next one will be just as good as her other series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marco | 3/14/2011

    " Ovviamente leggerò anche gli altri due della trilogia, quando usciranno. È sempre bello ritrovare lo stile inconfondibile della Canavan, i luoghi familiari, vecchi e nuovi personaggi... "
