The Black Magician Trilogy #3
Goodreads rating: 4.15
Published: 4 November 2004
My rating: 5
I loved this book – a lot – as you can tell by my rating. It was everything we needed from a final book. An epic story fulfilling all expectations and answering all questions.
As Sonea discovers more about Akkarin and his past we get to see an amazing shift in their relationship. Dannyl and Tayend also embark on a dangerous adventure that might expose everything they hold dear. While Rothen and Lorlen remain in the dark about most of what is happening while still trying in secret to do what they can for Sonea. This book uncovers EVERYTHING! It is so well written truly my favorite read this year. There is not much more I can say about it without spoiling it!
My advice is to just read this series! Trudie gives us the ending to the story we all deserve.
In the city of Imardin, where those who wield magic wield power, a young street-girl, adopted by the Magician’s Guild, finds herself at the centre of a terrible plot that may destroy the entire world…
Sonea has learned much at the magicians’ guild and the other novices now treat her with a grudging respect. But she cannot forget what she witnessed in the High Lord’s underground room – or his warning that the realm’s ancient enemy is growing in power once more. As Sonea learns more, she begins to doubt her guildmaster’s word. Could the truth really be as terrifying as Akkarin claims, or is he trying to trick her into assisting in some unspeakably dark scheme?
