9780060575281: The Magicians' Guild: The Black Magician Trilogy Book 1

Each year the magicians of Imardin gather together to purge the city streets of vagrants, urchins and miscreants. Masters of the disciplines of magic, they know that no one can oppose them. But their protective shield is not as impenetrable as they believe.

Sonea, angry, frustrated and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, hurls a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. To the amazement of all who bear witness, the stone passes unhindered through the barrier and renders a magician unconscious. The guild's worst fear has been realised ... There is an untrained magician loose on the streets. She must be found before her uncontrolled powers unleash forces that will destroy both her, and the city that is her home.

THE MAGICIANS' GUILD is a blistering new fantasy adventure from a debut author skilled in both world-building and storytelling. The trilogy continues with THE NOVICE and THE HIGH LORD.

Review:

"A wonderfully and meticulously detailed world, and an edge-of- the-seat plot, this book is a must for lovers of good fantasy." (Jennifer Fallon)

"The first book of 'The Black Magician Trilogy' by Trudi Canavan, "The Magicians' Guild" is set in a world where practicing magicians are required by King's Law to be members of a guild or suffer their magical abilities to be forever repressed and bound. Guild membership has become the exclusive province of magic users from the nobility or 'houses', while the common people, especially the annually displaced poor from the city, are felt to be inappropriate candidates for the privilege of guild membership. That is, until a young girl from the city slums discovers during the course of an annual protest that she has such powers. Slum dwellers or 'dwells' fear and despise the magicians. Fearing for her life and with the help of her closest friend and the 'Thieves', she seeks to hide from the magicians who are now seeking her out. The problem is that untrained and unchecked, her growing magical power will kill her. "The Magicians' Guild" is brought fully to life with the dramatic narrative skills of Richard Aspel in this complete and unabridged, 15 hour 45 minute, flawlessly produced audio book and will have listeners eagerly looking forward to the next two volumes of Trudi Canavan's 'The Black Magician Trilogy'!" (Mid West Book Review)
