The phenomenally popular first novel from international No. 1 bestselling author Trudi Canavan

*Over 3 million Trudi Canavan copies sold worldwide*

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

Sonea, angry, frustrated and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, hurls a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. To the amazement of all who bear witness, the stone passes unhindered through the barrier and renders a magician unconscious.

The guild's worst fear has been realised . . . There is an untrained magician loose on the streets. She must be found before her uncontrolled powers unleash forces that will destroy both her, and the city that is her home.

If I'm honest, I started this book, didn't get very far in and put in down in favour of something else. However, I went back to it and although the start was a little slow to get going, its definitely worth... More

“Disappointing”

For a book about magic, there is nothing magical about this plodding story. Filled with 2 dimensional characters, clichéd dialogue and few surprises in the plot. It is the kind of Fantasy book that I find really... More
