Book 5: The Magician's Guild

My husband recommended the next book I'm reading for the Witchy Reading Challenge. It's actually book one in a trilogy so I'm going to try to read all three. It's The Black Magician Trilogy written by Trudi Canavan and it starts with The Magician's Guild.

~ The old magician paused. 'If this young woman is a natural, we should expect her to be more powerful than out average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician.'

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

Sonea angry, frustrated and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, throws a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. She is amazed when it sails unrestricted through the barrier and knocks a magician unconscious.

The Guild's worst fear has been realised. There is an untrained magician loose in Imardin who must be found before her uncontrolled powers can destroy herself and the city. ~

I'm not usually interested in fantasy novels but it will be a welcome change from the romance novels. I'm starting to realize, if a book is fiction and listed as free on the Kindle, chances are it's a romance novel. Not that I mind a good romance novel mind you.. but the genre's getting a little stale. So here's to something new, I hope I enjoy it.

Read any good books yourself lately?
