The High Lord (The Black Magician Trilogy #3)
"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...more

Just finished and I really enjoyed this one. I can't honestly say that it kept me guessing 'till the end though. This is perhaps my biggest complaint with the writing. It tends to telegraph itself. Not so that it ruins the story over-all but enough so that there aren't any real surprise "twists".
Ci sono due cose sicuramente positive in questo libro: Il graduale cambiamento dell'atteggiamento della protagonista nei confronti della Magia nera, e la relazione tra Tayed e Dannyl, argomento-l'omosessualità- spesso tabù, in u...more
The last hundred or so pages are incredible - fast, action packed and unpredictable. Everything that the other two books aren't. I couldn't put the book down. Also, the number of deaths in this one is ridiculou...more
I loved a mage you see, long ago. I met him in a book. I followed him eagerly through six volumes over and over, and each time he died it shattered me. He was a study in...more
Gaahhhh! I loved this book so much, I've read it more times than I care to count and yet each time I finish it I react in the exactly same way.
It's the final book in the trilogy so naturally you should read the other two first (Th Magician's Guild and The Novice) and although the other two are great this one just takes everything you...more

I first read the Black Magician Trilogy around four years ago and I loved it. I eventually bought myself the trilogy so I could re-read it whenever I want and only the best of the best make it to my bookshelf.
Sonea is an incredibly strong female character. She rarely shows weakness and is quick on her feet in tricky situations. The way she held herself through all the bullying could be pretty inspiring for any...more

- I enjoyed the series, but I'm putting it firmly in the "good not great" category (hence the 3 star rating). As so often happens with YA fiction, it just doesn't have the full depth or the originality that would move it up a notch or two, which is unfortunate since there are definitely books out there which prove YA fiction need not be shallow or...more
Predictable? ...... maybe? In a way. You already know, at the first page of the first book, that there is going to be a massive ending that will make the 1000+ pages you read before a worth while and pleasurable dedication of...more
As the novels continued, Ms. Canavan seemed to begin using "false foreshadowing" where the...more
A wonderful climax to a spellbinding trilogy, The High Lord lived up to all my expectations. It is a great culmination of Sonea’s adventures as the only slum dweller to be accepted into the ranks of the Magician’s Guild. Canavan’s storytelling is brilliant and makes it easy for readers to become emotionally invested in her characters. I especially loved Ceryani’s role in this novel, as it seemed very fitting to have Sonea’s childhood friend involved in the dangers she f...more

I also grew to adore the "evil" High Lord Akkarin while reading this book. The way his relationship with Sonea progressed throughout the book kept me curious and concerned f...more

She turned to regard him. 'Discussing?'
'Outside the farmhouse when I was buying the food.'
'Oh. Then. Nothing.'
He smiled and nodded. 'Nothing. Amazing subject, that one. Produces such fascinating reactions in people.”
Sonea: I love you too.”
