"You want to know the truth."

Sonea has learned much since she was but a penniless urchin possessing an awesome untapped ability. She has earned the grudging respect of her fellow novices and a place in the Magicians' Guild. But there is much she wishes she had never learned—what she witnessed, for example, in the underground chamber of the mysterious High Lord Akkarin . . . and the knowledge that the Guild is being observed closely by an ancient fearsome enemy.

Still, she dares not ignore the terrifying truths the High Lord would share with her, even though she fears it may be base trickery, a scheme to use her astonishing powers to accomplish his dark aims. For Sonea knows her future is in his hands—and that only in the shadows will she achieve true greatness . . . if she survives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read This trilogy was highly captavating. The characters were charismatic, a few we couldn't help but hate or fall in love with. Great read, could not put the last book down. A shocking ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic book Although I was rather skeptical when I began this series, I'm glad I didn't let the other reviews warn me off. I thought that perhaps these books would be a pleasant distraction from my other reading for school, but not enough that it would take too much of my time. In other words, I figured this series would be the kind that I could put down for a time and return to it when I was less busy. Alas, that was not so. Despite two assignments, a paper, and an oral presentation, I could not stop reading. (I did get the other stuff done somehow too though ;)) The first two books were a little more what I had expected -full of interesting details and characters, but not the best work I have read. I have just finished The High Lord, and let me say this: wow. I expected the series to weaken as it reached its end, but I was very, very wrong. I found this book challenged the way I thought about things, and played with my emotions, despite the fact that it is fiction. I grew to truly care about each character (some more than others) and I was shocked at the end. I will not give it away, for those who have not read it yet, but you probably will be too. As the conclusion draws near you suspect what will happen, and yet you hope that it won't. I think that is always the sign of a convincing author and story. I understand why others have found this book/series typical or less thrilling than others, but I think that it deserves its credit too. I loved how magic was handled. Too often fantasty books don't explain how magic works, or they stress that magic can be turned evil without showing the flip side to that. I think this book dealt well with the topic of power vs. responsibility and presented a different view on it. I liked guessing at which characters were evil or not, and I found that it alternated between sets of characters frequently enough to be interesting, but not so much that I couldn't follow. I wish that there had been some passages from Akkarin's point of view, but I understand why this wasn't possible (and you will too if you read it!). So I highly recommend this book. You will have to wade through the first two -which are a little more simplistic, but still an enjoyable read- otherwise you will be lost in the last one. The end is sad, but it feels very realistic and right, as life must always go on even if it is just a story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect ending of An Excellent Trilogy Many of you have read the first two books of The Black Magician Trilogy. Well this book is the perfect ending for them. A story with Adventer, magic and love, what more can a person want in a good story. The twists in the book make it hard to let go and has one reading for hours on end, dispite eye strain! I highly reconmend this book to all book readers alike!
