*spoilers* Cery returns to the scene. Regin bugs Sonea less and less, as she also learns and tries black magic (her decision) to protect Kyralia against Ichani, black magicians (outcasts) from Sachaka. Sonea learns about Akkarin's slave past. Both are exiled and punished, as the High Magicians think they killed Lord Josen (while it was an Ichani) and because they (magicians) found out about the black magic books. Akkarin's story about the Ichani trying to invade Kyralia only convinced the Guild once the Fort and the Guild are under direct attack. Sonea & Akkarin return to help save the city, though have to keep this a secret, else the enemy finds out. And so lots of battles break loose, the Thieves help hide S&A, even kill an Ichani.

Once the "war" is over, the Guild chooses a new High Lord (Balkan), Admin (Lord Osen, since Lorlen died on the battlefield), etc... Dannyl remains amabassador for Elyne and can thus remain with Tayend.

Sonea isn't really punished, but gets to do charity (healing) work, something she always wanted. But she's still not over Akkarin's death. However, she is pregnant from him, so...

All in all, a very fine ending of the trilogy. Lots of moments where you can feel sympathy for Sonea, for Akkarin, for Rothen, for Cery (who also has to break up with his Sachakan girlfriend, Savara). The ending may be a bit "simple" (easy to say once the book is read, of course), but Trudi could also have it end with S&A ruling together. And then what? Now, it's kind of logical: Sonea gets to do what she wanted (healing) and this also introduces a new era, a new beginning, now that Akkarin is no more and the Guild is to continue with new leaders and teachers.

It's a light read, somehow, and that's good. Book 1 may be slow and a bit hard to get through, but it's in 2 and 3 all the action is. It's also nice to read how Trudi repeats some things, little reminders of who's who, who did what when how why, ... ( )

There's a lot going on in the finale of this trilogy. If you've enjoyed the series so far, you'll want to know how everything wraps up. There's a lot of action and some feels too.

As usual, despite having read this series more than once, I forgot everything so I was so curious to find out how everything ended up. A satisfying end to a great series! ( )

El mejor libros de los tres , una forma increíble para acabar la trilogía, con muchisima más acción que los dos anteriores. Me engancho tanto que me costaba dejar de leer. Sin duda una gran lectura y super recomendado. 5 estrellas sin duda. ( )

It has been a year since Sonea won over Regin in the public duel but she still hasn't won over her fear of Akkarin. It's hard to even be in his presence as she constantly thinks back to the night in the basement of his house. But Akkarin has stopped leaving her alone as he starts giving her books about the history of the Guild; where no one other than the Guild's architect himself has used blood magic to create the Academy. As her interest grows, he gives her more and more material. She's uncertain wether to trust him or any of the books, but it's hard to resist the need of understanding what blood magic truly is.

At the same time, a serial murderer is haunting the city. The victims are all found dead even though there's hardly any signs of violence and all wounds are considered minimal – sometimes nothing more than a tiny cut. It soon becomes obvious there's something evil at play; something using blood magic. And according to Akkarin, whatever that something is... it's only the beginning.

This was honestly the best book in the series, undoubtedly. It was an exciting page-turner with lots of action with magic and battles; the stuff I like more than anything. It was definitely the end of the trilogy; kind of like the series' The Return of the King and not just by both being the third book. I feel like this book really stepped out from the middle book which definitely felt like, well, the middle of a story. Right after the first action and right before the last action.

I loved learning more about Akkarin and who he truly is. However, it felt a bit odd to me to see him and Sonea together as I've always pictured her as a teenager and him as an adult. I realise Sonea is near twenty by this book, but I've constantly pictured her as Aria Stark which has given her a younger look in my mind. So, for me, that part felt very odd. However, I couldn't get enough of Akkarin. Or Cerny, who really excelled in this part of the story. I love him so much. ( )

Life should have been easier for Sonea, now that Regin ignored her and the rest of the novices treated her with wary respect, but she cannot forget what she witnessed in Akkarin's underground room, or his warning that Kyralia's ancient enemy is watching the Guild closely. The last few years have been good for Cery. He has a respected position among the Thieves, and connections in high and low places. When an exotic stranger offers to help him with a secret task, Cery knows he should refuse, but life would be boring without the occasional risk... As Akkarin reveals more, Sonea does not know what to believe or what she fears most - that the truth is as terrifying as he claims or that he is trying to make her his accomplice in black magic.
