N ~ The Novice

The Novice by Trudi Canavan is the second book in the Black Magician trilogy.  I wasn't sure what to expect.  It was a new author to me.  I love fantasy, but know (unfortunately) that there is plenty of mediocre fantasy out there.

This series was really good.  It's easy to lose yourself in these stories.  I read this trilogy back in 2011 and it still sticks in my mind as a really wonderful set of books.  I gave them all a solid 8/10 or better.  

The Magicians' Guild (book 1) and The High Lord (book 3) are both equally memorable.  Give this series a try.  I can't imagine it will disappoint you.


  1. Have not heard of this series but will be sure to pick it up with your review here.. and in my case, I fell off the wagon of reading challenges this year already, but need to get back soon..will check out your picks for the challenges too

  3. I enjoyed the series very much :-) The sequels to the series disappointed, though... Happy A-to-Z-ing.

  4. Thanks for the tip! The name rings a bell, but I don't know much about them.

  5. Will have to look this series up. The series name sounds familiar, but not sure about the individual titles. Thanks a lot for adding to my (already toppling) TBR pile! :P
