9780060575298: The Novice (The Black Magician Trilogy, Book 2)

"Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control them."

Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful allies—including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading . . . until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his mysteries—and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into the darkness.

Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated peril—as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . . . and terrible.

About the Author:

Trudi Canavan is the author of the bestselling Black Magician trilogy—The Magician's Guild, The Novice, and The High Lord—as well as Priestess of the White and Last of the Wilds, Books One and Two of her Age of the Five trilogy. She lives in a little house on a hillside, near a forest, in the Melbourne suburb of Ferntree Gully in Australia. She has been making up stories about things that don't exist for as long as she can remember, and was amazed when her first published story received an Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Short Story in 1999. A freelance illustrator and designer, she also works as the designer and Art Director of Aurealis, a magazine of Australian Fantasy & Science Fiction.

From AudioFile:

Ominous music at the beginning of each chapter sets the tone in this tale of magic and intrigue. Richard Aspel's subtle Australian accent has a mystical quality as he traces Sonea's first year as a novice in the Magician's Guild. The action alternates between Sonea's trials with her classmates and an undercover investigation of the Guild's leader. Aspel does his best to provide a unique voicing of each character, but even that is not always enough to keep the extensive cast of characters straight. Also, the supplementary information at the end of the audio, including a glossary, could have been better absorbed in a print format. E.N. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
