The Black Magician Trilogy, written by Trudi Canavan, is an utterly fantastic book trilogy that I would recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in fiction. Unlike a lot of other book series, such as my own, this series is short and succinct, wrapping up with only three books (to be fair there is a prequel novel and sequel series, but I would prefer to think that those books don’t exist).

Trudi Canavan’s The Black Magician trilogy comprises The Magicians’ Guild, The Novice and The High Lord. Book 1 - The Magicians’ Guild - was slow-paced. The story revolves around Sonea, a slum girl who is found to have high magical potential, and the fate of Kyralia, her land, which is under threat from the black magicians of Sachaka’s wastelands. The first part describes the efforts of Sonea to escape the Guild’s capture, the misunderstandings between the Guild and the dwells, and this went on and on and often got boring. The key themes here are the class difference in Kyralia and the fears of acceptance and rejection.

The Black Magician trilogy is a fantasy novel series written by Australian author Trudi Canavan. The books follow a slum-dwelling girl named Sonea who, although born and raised in the slums of Imardin, discovers that she has natural magical abilities usually restricted to the upper classes.

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.

Pros: Snappy writing, decent character building, an interesting world, and a magic system that has reasonable limitations, it appears.

Cons: No real plot twists, first half of the book feels like it could've been condensed into a few chapters with no real loss to the story.

Overall: I liked it. I'm a veteran epic fantasy and historical fiction reader, so not sure I'm the target audience. It's an excellent place to start if you're getting into the genre.

UPDATE: I just finished the trilogy, and I could not have been more wrong about my expectations after this first book. I assumed I was in for a standard, predictable "epic" fantasy series, with plot points stretched out and stock characters abounding. What I got was a thrilling, no-punches-pulled truly epic adventure. In hindsight, I now understand why Caravan built up the first half of this book like she did. A must read for any fantasy fan!

If you loved Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, then you will absolutely love the Black Magician Trilogy. The Black Magician Trilogy, written by Trudi Canavan, is an utterly fantastic book trilogy that I would recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in fiction. Unlike a lot of other book series, such as my own, this series is short and succinct, wrapping up with only three books (to be fair there is a prequel novel and sequel series, but I would prefer to think that those books don’t exist).

The series follows Sonea, a slum-living girl of Imardin, who violently discovers latent magic within her. While the first book focuses on her escaping the magicians who seek to control her and tame her now reckless magic shows a slightly innocent Sonea, she develops throughout the course of the series into a strong, resolute, able and compassionate woman. I love it when women in novels don’t turn into classic female archetypes. Sonea is definitely an original. If I ever had a daughter, I would want her to read this book (and also the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce) so she could see what a truly strong woman is.

Canavan is also a master of threading multiple plots in a single novel. Each book in the trilogy has multiple storylines and each of the storylines are still interesting, a feat in and of itself. It shows that not only is Canavan limitlessly imaginative, but she is also crazy talented. I can only hope to make so many storylines flow together so smoothly and beautifully. Though the last book is dogged down by a love-plotline that came from way out in left field, I still appreciate the story in it’s entirety. The first book is a novel version of cat and mouse, the second is more of an adult version of Harry Potter, and the third is a book-long climax that wont let you go for a second.

I totally recommend this book to anyone with a love of both magic and realism. Canavan is truly a hero among authors for her world building, and her books manage to rekindle the nostalgia in me for the days of Harry Potter and schools where you can go learn magic. I would trade my Anthropology of Religion class for Transfiguration any day.

I am disappointed with the never ending search for the enemy army, we never get to explore the young apprentice and the fun stuff. The never ending search for the Dwell, we can't explore the fun stuff. The never ending harassment of a bully, what about the thrill of her exploring her powers that just gets brushed over. These books had potential, but the never ending theme gets boring, I find myself skipping ahead to get to a part that's exciting.

Original magic system. Not very complex yet, but structure and some laws revealed.
Good opening character development for the slum characters, though does have room to grow. I'd like to see more cleverness by these characters. The lead magician characters have much work needed, they seem fairly 2 dimensional and thus, predictable. Let the characters have fun, show that even the goody two shoes characters aren't perfect all the time... or even if they are, reveal their internal conflict and decisions via internal dialogue. Show that the evil characters have deeper motivations and/or think what their doing is right or justified, as most real people do. We all make decisions to do good or evil in every second, in every moment, with every decision. Good character development portrays these constant decisions made internally/externally, and it's not always a straight line, though can be a consistent trend.
Humor was attempted but a failure with this book, good try though. Very few fantasy authors can pull this off, but I'll keep crying about it until they collectively get better. LoL.
The plot was very good borderline great. The choice on perspectives for some of the plot reveals was a nice touch in order to prolong suspense for a harder hitting climax. Well played! Also the weaving in of the greater trilogy plot within this opening story without comprising either deserves some recognition. Finally, a few minor to moderate plot twists towards and at the end help to give the plotline some additional suspense and unpredictability.

All in all, good book and I'm buying the next. Hopefully the author grows and these turn into 5 stars!

I really don't know why this series isn't more popular, unless the last book is terrible or something! I was very surprised how much I loved it! The Kindle sample seemed quite long, so definitely give that a try if you're unsure, but even then, the full Kindle version was only $2.99. I can see where some people might think the first half a little slow, but I found it very interesting and helped flesh out the world. I enjoy the different perspectives of characters, but sometimes I wish it was a little more obvious when it was changing/who it was changing to.

Overall, I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy novels, magic/wizards, rags to riches, and to an extinct, thieves! :)
