Book Review: The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan.

The Magicians' Guild (Black Magician, #1)The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Magicians’ Guild is basically a story about Sonea, a girl with innate magical abilities that appear when she throws a stone at a magician of the guild in anger. On realising she has magical power the guild search to find her before her magic consumes her, but she thinks they want punish her for throwing the stone and so is in hiding.

The Bad Stuff: Trudi Canavan tends to use a lot of internal thought to convey what she wants the reader to know or think, this irritated me a little. Some of the story was a little predictable.

The Good Stuff: I liked the different characters and cultures within this story. The world is also well established.

On the whole, this was a very enjoyable book, Trudy Canavan has created a solid fantasy world with interesting characters that will carry you through the story and leave you wanting more. I give this one 4 out of 5 golden bookmarks.
