His first order from Administrator Lorlen is to resume, in secret, High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge. Not knowing the true reason for his journey, Dannyl is soon facing unexpected dangers.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alana | 2/11/2014

    " I'm really enjoying this series of books. I love the characters and the paths they all seem to be taking, I like the intrigue surrounding the high lord and I can't wait to see where it leads. I'm also pleased with the way in which Dannyl has been written, and that his sexuality is not beaten around the bush or hushed up but rather is openly and descriptively talked about and the challenges he faces and the conflicts in emotions he feels are all very real things that would be felt by a real person in his position. It's refreshing to read. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olivia | 2/10/2014

    " The first half suffers from the absence of the impressive Akkarin, but it's a convincing account of an outsider's struggle to grow up in a magic school that is sufficiently different from Hogwarts, and in a good way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanna | 1/29/2014

    " The suspense builds up in Book 2 but either I was getting impatient or the story was moving on a bit slower than I'd have liked (likely the former), I started thumbing through Book 3 to find out what actually happens. Finally finishing the book, I'd say it was a suspense builder. You'd better have Book 3 in hand so you don't pass out from the stress of wanting to know what happens next. "

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

    " It was definitely better than the previous tome! I especially enjoyed the high lord plot. On the other hand, I was deeply astonished by Dannyl's adventures. I didn't expect this kind of ending at all. All in all, I impatiently look forward to reading the last book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 1/22/2014

    " Wow - even better than the first! This is a fantastic book; it's easy to read, it's absorbing, and I can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stirling Miller | 1/17/2014

    " Same thing, watch this book in your head, it is amazing. Plus there is a gay relationship and that is just amazing in modern books as it is not widely accepted in media yet (well at least not in america BBC rules) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 12/26/2013

    " The second book of the trilogy, the story focuses on our heroine's tribulations attending classes to learn how to control her magic. The class struggle and discrimination again are at the fore, and the politics of the college are also interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snafu77 | 12/22/2013

    " A good sequel to an enjoyable series, reread at least twice so must be good. The plot is a bit silly in places, but its an interesting world with interesting magic. Characterisations are pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Foley | 12/16/2013

    " Brilliant trilogy... always love a twist!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NiNi | 12/12/2013

    " I very much enjoyed reading this book, for me it is better than the first part. I really like the characters of Dorrien and Dannyl, and though I know Akkarin is black magician, and is supposed to be the bad guy, I still kinda like him :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Williams | 12/7/2013

    " Why the heck is there a flaming winged horse on the cover? There definitely isn't one anywhere in the book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 12/7/2013

    " Nice, easy reading. Looking forward to the last in the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michaelcheng | 9/16/2013

    " A great follow-up to the first book. Just as fast-paced and original as the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 9/12/2013

    " Solid 3.5 stars, but I'll bump it up. Does not stand alone (ends with a cliffhanger), but worked well considering that I read its predecessor months ago. I think I would have preferred more descriptions of classes and magic in this world, but I enjoyed the side plot with Dannyl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley | 9/3/2013

    " Second of a trilogy, not quite as good as the first book but still forced me to read page after breathless page. Excellent and gripping high fantasy action. I miss the Thieves' World flavor of the first book, but this one is still good too. =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel | 1/20/2013

    " An entertaining series that provides a relaxing read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan Baker | 12/8/2012

    " amazing book, i read this without reading the first but this book explaines the events of the first book quickly for the reader. sonea was so real for a fictional character. akkarin's dark secret is an amazing back bone for the stroy and made it that more enticing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katharine | 11/22/2012

    " Better than the first <4 I found excuses to read at work, like hiding it away when I had to do laminating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Ann | 8/30/2012

    " Again, I read this book of the trilogy to my husband and we are really looking forward to reading more of Canavan's books. She is a great author in our eyes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krisney María:3 | 4/4/2012

    " AMAZING, esta historia se pone cada vez mejor con cada libro, fascinante, hipnotizante, simplemente, bueno. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adele | 11/3/2011

    " iv currently given up on this book. i really enjoyed the first book in the series. but couldnt get into this one. i got to about 160 pages. but found myself not really getting into the story and skimming through it. i may pick it up again in the future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lagina | 5/18/2011

    " Reading these out of order is probably a mistake, but my library didn't have v.1 in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aviva | 4/12/2011

    " Great story, and a surprisingly well paced storyline for a middle-of-a-trilogy book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrsterrapinpond | 2/20/2011

    " Better than the 1st book in the series. Can't wait to read more! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Auris | 1/22/2011

    " I couldn't really get one with part one already but my friend told me to read part two because it would get better. In my opinion though it didn't. I thought the story was plain, boring and too long. "

    " il primo l'ho letto a fatica...il secondo pure :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/31/2010

    " A much better sequel than I had expected. I wish it could have kept going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candice | 12/28/2010

    " Better than the first one in that it had more drama, and drew more interest out of me. "
