Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about their unique magic. But the Traitors are reluctant to trade their secrets for the Healing they so desperately want.
Meanwhile, Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever — but the rogue’s influence over the city’s underworld, however, is far greater than she feared.
And in the University, two female novices are about to remind the Guild that sometimes their greatest enemy is found within… (Goodreads)
My Rating: 5/5
This series is beginning to look more intricate and detailed than Canavan’s previous series.
Lorkin is by far my favourite character right now as Sonea’s storyline is a little dull (for now). The plot that Lorkin follows is exciting, dangerous, and interesting as it reveals more and more of the secret world that has not yet been explored.
The best second novel of a trilogy I have ever read.
