My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The High Lord is the third book in Trudi Canavan’s Black Magician Trilogy. It carries on the journey of Sonea as she continues to learn the art of magic. In this final instalment, Sonea and Akkarin have been exiled from Kyralia for the use of Black Magic.
The Bad Stuff: As always, I struggle with the internal monologue and it’s use to lead the reader. There are some obvious plot twists that could have been presented more subtly.
The Good Stuff: This is set in a well defined world, with familiar characters whose stories have been followed through the previous two books. The story flows smoothly and brings a conclusion to the series.
On the whole this was a great end to the Black Magician series. I enjoyed all three books and so far, have found this title to be my favourite of Trudi’s books. I give this one 4 out of 5 golden bookmarks.
