"We should expect this young woman to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician."

This year, like every other, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city of undesirables. Cloaked in the protection of their sorcery, they move with no fear of the vagrants and miscreants who despise them and their work--until one enraged girl, barely more than a child, hurls a stone at the hated invaders . . . and effortlessly penetrates their magical shield.

What the Magicians' Guild has long dreaded has finally come to pass. There is someone outside their ranks who possesses a raw power beyond imagining, an untrained mage who must be found and schooled before she destroys herself and her city with a force she cannot yet control.

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)

Book Description:

The first volume in the internationally bestselling trilogy of magic, intrigue and breathtaking epic adventure.
