Life should have been easier for Sonea, now that Regin ignored her and the rest of the novices treated her with wary respect, but she cannot forget what she witnessed in Akkarin's underground room, or his warning that Kyralia's ancient enemy is watching the Guild closely. The last few years have been good for Cery. He has a respected position among the Thieves, and connections in high and low places. When an exotic stranger offers to help him with a secret task, Cery knows he should refuse, but life would be boring without the occasional risk...

As Akkarin reveals more, Sonea does not know what to believe or what she fears most - that the truth is as terrifying as he claims or that he is trying to make her his accomplice in black magic. Download and start listening now!

    " The whole series is a very easy and exiting read. Not really literature, but very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Thomas | 2/9/2014

    " I hadn't read a fantasy novel in ages. Found this one onboard the plane, left behind by someone... and couldn't put it down! "

    " This has been a very nice fantasy read. The author did a great job of having several plot lines, developing multiple characters, creating interest and mystery. The first book was the most clumsy, but arguably the second was the best because it contained a different direction and so much mystery. Some of it was lost on me because I read the prequel first. A nice third book to the trilogy that contained amble surprises and action, though the ending almost seemed week after so much action. I do like that the author chose not to have an easy happy ending. That is somewhat risky, but much more realistic, especially given the reality of war and the desolation it caused the Guild. Of course she left the door open to further books at the end and I intend to read the trilogy that focuses more on Sonea's son's story in the future. The author probably has more room to fill in stories during the middle time, even if they don't focus as much on Sonea. It really is a nice story and certainly can be filled in a various points in time and geographically in this world Canavan created. "

    " loved it but sad how it ends "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Veronika Chelioti | 2/1/2014

    " I would have loved if she hadn't killed Akkarin!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 1/24/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was an excellent conclusion to the series. The action was exciting and interesting, I didn't want to put the book down. While I liked the first 2 books, this was definitely the best and made reading the series worth every page. I will probably pick up other books by this author in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kjirstin | 1/23/2014

    " An apt conclusion to an interesting trilogy. A little formulaic, but the plot took some twists that I wasn't expecting, and the resolution to the action was satisfying, overall (though when I was a younger reader I might have preferred a more straightforward happily-ever-after--as it was, the conclusion seemed about right). Good female protagonist fantasy, definitely hits the spot when I need some escapism. "

    " Diary entry from 2008 - said it was 'good'.. "

    " Definitely now my new favorite trilogy! Canavan's imaginations is genuine, and she is an incredible storyteller! I love her complicated, thick plots (and boy does this one really get involved!), and her characters are so real! Love her stories. "

    " The author has managed to give me suspense, excite me, surprise me, and break my heart, all in one book. And I spent the wee hours of the morning reading this. Oh, my heart... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 11/25/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica Romano | 7/7/2012

    " really enjoyed the previous two book. easy to read and very entertaining. I am new to fantasy stories, but I have to say I am pleased weith these books and will try something more challenging in this genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chocholic21 | 4/18/2012

    " an amazing book but arguably not the best in the trilogy for me... i found that in parts trudi skimmed over areas too quickly ... things changed way too soon ... i felt that the ending was somewhat rushed ... and i was left feeling empty by the end of the book.. definitely recommend it though :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delgerdalai | 1/9/2012

    " kinda disappointing. the enemies are too weak. just a few dumb people. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Derrick | 1/3/2012

    " Dannyl and Tayend. Enough said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 8/4/2011

    " The last of the trilogy, but there is an opening for more books. The fight between black magic and acceptable "good" magic ends with a showdown. The ending was a surprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Smalvina | 5/12/2011

    " nice but predictable. good for younger readers (like 12-14). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleni | 4/28/2011

    " i can only say that it was amazing and really sad... there wasn't a moment of boredom instead the story flowed easily and captivated you until the end!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ktea | 4/24/2011

    " I really enjoyed the book up until the ending I can't see what killing off akarin added to the series, It just left me feeling sad and robbed of a good ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise | 4/9/2011

    " This was the best book in the Black Magician Triology, and I was really sad to see it end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Ann | 4/6/2011

    " Ending was a little dissappointing/upsetting. Death of High Lord was to be expected but not the desired ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 3/11/2011

    " I was disappointed with how the book developed. It was way too much of a romance than it needed to be to tell the story that it did and the setup for that romance was pretty clumsy. Taken as part of the series, it's still pretty good, but barely at my personal threshold for 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrsterrapinpond | 2/20/2011

    " It's the kind of story that I wish would just go on and on forever. So sad when it finished. Even though many concepts are predictable, the way the story unfolds is pure magic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karo | 2/9/2011

    " The whole series is a very easy and exiting read. Not really literature, but very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pascal | 1/23/2011

    " Wow. This book was really great, kept my turning pages. The character development was all there, and I recommend this to all with an imagination. "
