"Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control them."

Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful allies--including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading . . . until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his mysteries--and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into the darkness.

Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated peril--as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . . . and terrible.

Richard on
Sonea is now learning the magic arts, and has a sympathetic tutor, in general, but still has to deal with the rich kids, and boys who aren't fans of hers.

That is pretty simple compared to the fact that it seems the head of the whole joint is a dirty filthy human sacrificing black magician, and she is co-opted and cannot tell anyone.

All, however, is not as it seems.
Varisa on
I found the first book in this series entertaining, not great or original, but a decent story to pass the time. As a result, I held no great expectations for this story, however, I was still dissapointed. I have never read a book with an established protagonist and storyline that devoted so much page space to the development of the relationship of sidecharacter and the progression of a marginal subplot. If the author wishes to espouse tolerance of alternative lifestyles, there are other more appropriate pulpits from which to preach. While the overall story still manages to be coherant, it lacks focus and impact.
Amelia on
A book that lives up to and exceeds expectations from the first book. Another great story about the guild complete with magic and mystery. You wont want to put it down until you have read evey word twice. Great twists and turns in the story that will leave you wondering until the shocking conclusion.
Nicola on
If she leaves the guild she is at risk of being drained of her magic through the dark arts but it seems that she isn't very safe at the guil either. picked on mercilessly she has to struggle through while being ahead of everyone else in class. while under this stress she still has a secret to hide of dark magic being preformed at the highest level and is he killing. Read this series it has the best twist I have ever seen in a series because she never hints at it. except when you reread it and see all the little things. Her best yet.
