NAME:The Magicians Guild(Book One); The Novice(Book Two);
DESCRIPTION:These book have been recently read by me! Yes, ones with the very same covers as those above! These are part of the Black Magician Trilogy, where Sonea, a slum girl pushed out of her stay house in the City during the Purge (an attempt by the Guild to remove immigrants and Thieves from the City). Annoyed, Sonea joins a gang of Juvenile Delinquents throwing stones at the Magicians of the Guild. Sonea throws a large stone at the Magicians, putting all her anger and hate behind it, and was amazed when there was a flash of blue light as the stone passed though the magician's powerful barrier, hitting a magician on the temple.
This discovery of magic sends Sonea crashing through an adventure starring evil, danger and....
BLACK MAGIC PERFORMED BY THE HIGH LORD OF THE GUILD!!
What I liked about this book was that it is an adventurous book about magic, and Adventure and magic are my fave things! I really like it how in The Novice, when Sonea takes Dorrien's advise and challenges an offending novice to a formal battle in the arena, the novice is surprised!
