Akkarin

by Trudi Canavan

"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.

Sonea

by Trudi Canavan

"You want to know the truth."

Sonea has learned much since she was but a penniless urchin possessing an awesome untapped ability. She has earned the grudging respect of her fellow novices and a place in the Magicians' Guild. But there is much she wishes she had never learned—what she witnessed, for example, in the underground chamber of the mysterious High Lord Akkarin . . . and the knowledge that the Guild is being observed closely by an ancient fearsome enemy.

Still, she dares not ignore the terrifying truths the High Lord would share with her, even though she fears it may be base trickery, a scheme to use her astonishing powers to accomplish his dark aims. For Sonea knows her future is in his hands—and that only in the shadows will she achieve true greatness . . . if she survives.

Sonea The Black Magician Trilogy

by Trudi Canavan

El primer volumen de una deslumbrante trilogía de género fantástico. Magia, acción y aventuras de altos vuelos en la ópera prima de una autora que ha triunfado en el mundo entero.

Cada año los magos de Imardin se reúnen para realizar, junto con la guardia real, una gran purga en las calles de la ciudad: la vacían de vagabundos, pícaros y maleantes. Son maestros en las diversas disciplinas de la magia, y saben que nadie puede oponérseles. Pero su escudo protector no es tan impenetrable como creen.
Porque Sonea, una joven que vive en la calle, está furiosa tras ver que su familia y sus amigos van a ser expulsados de la ciudad. Toda la rabia acumulada por años de injusticia va concentrada en una piedra que Sonea lanza contra las fuerzas del orden. Para sorpresa de todos, la piedra atraviesa la barrera invisible y derriba a uno de los magos.
El peor de los temores del gremio se ha hecho realidad: hay un mago sin educar en las calles. ¡Un mago fuera de la nobleza! Deben encontrar a Sonea cuanto antes, porque se trata de una persona con un poder enorme que, descontrolado, representa una amenaza tanto para quien lo posee como para el resto de la ciudad.

«Imprescindible para todos los amantes de la fantasía. Los tres libros de la trilogía merecen ser leídos como uno solo.» Allgemeine Zeitung

The Black Magician

by Trudi Canavan

5 avg rating

"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.
