First part of 3 about a girl from the slums possessing magical abilities. Then a mouse-and-cat game follows between her (and her friends and the Thieves) and the Guild of magicians. Since only those are known to have magic in their hands. Hide-and-seek game as well, taking ages to end. She/Sonea gets captured in the end, to save all from harm & she gets introduced into mastering her powers (Control), what the Guild is, their lessons, etc... And she likes it after a while, sees the benefits. But another magician doesn't like slumpeople, esp. not in the Guild, so he tries to get rid of her in a sleek way, but his secret is revealed anyway and so all ends well. Or does it? Let's see for pt 2, The Novice. Anyway, TMG is a good book, but a little slow and (my copy) contains some grammatical errors. From the looks of it, the real action & adventure is to be found in the 2 other parts. ( )

This was a favorite series of mine back in high school and I'm pleased to say it remains a favorite. It was almost like reading the book again for the first time because I'd forgotten all but the bare bones of the story. Sonea is probably your generic, fantasy underdog character, but she's one I enjoy reading about. Canavan's world-building is great and I find myself easily caught up in the drama of the guild. I also enjoy the way Canavan weaves relevant topics like class and sexual preference into her characters and world. To me, this is one of those fantasy books that feels timeless. If you enjoy the magical school atmosphere, but you don't want the detail of daily courses and homework (a la HP), this is a series you should check out. It still gives the university atmosphere but focuses on the bigger picture. ( )

A girl discovers she can use magic but distrusts the Guild that she must join to get training. An engaging and well paced story. ( )

It was very cute. All I've been seeming to pick up these days are fantasy crusades and massacres, so this was such a good turn away. It was very light in terms of intensity, which is great for those times when you're not into the slaughter of villages. It was strange because I feel like with another book I would have said, "But nothing happened . . ." but this was a good enough story that I didn't mind. I understand that it was just the beginning and the fact that I was explicitly told what at least the next book would be about was a bit better than a lot of other instances. The main problem I had was that the first half of the book was unnecessarily long-winded. It was basically the concentration of my "but nothing happened . . ." thoughts. The second part is much better. I almost skipped ahead to it, but I, rather obviously, figured I'd miss stuff.

I would recommend it. It's actually good and the main character is super great and a super strong person. I love her a lot and I want to see what happens to her. On to the next one. ( )

I stumbled across this book series through my friend who is passionately obsessed with everything Canavan, so naturally, as a good friend I decided it was time to check it out. Okay, he said it was a fantasy with gay moments and I was instantly hooked. It's hard not to want to get your hands on a book like that. Good fantasy is exciting enough but good fantasy with gays? Oh, yes.

Sonea is a young slum girl who lives in a world in which magic is real but limited to those belong to the Magician's Guild and it's been centuries since anyone but children of the wealthy Houses were allowed to study as novices under the magicians of the Guild. It's been so long that most people seem to consider magic limited to those of the Houses. But they couldn't be more wrong.

Sonea's hometown has an annual event called The Purge; a brutal and embarrassing day for those of the lower social classes. The magicians gather to purge the city of its unwanted population; forcing them into the slums that surround the area within the city wall. During this year's Purge, she runs into some old friends who decides to throw stones at the magicians to demonstrate their rage. It doesn't hurt them anyway, the magicians have shields that protect them from the crowd. Nothing can go in without them allowing it. Well, at least not until Sonea throws a stone driven by pure rage... and manages to knock out a magician.

She manages to get away with the help of her old friends but life as she knows it is undoubtedly over. The magicians are looking for her all over with seemingly no intentions to stop until they've found her. Sonea, on the other hand, is determined not to be found. But being in hiding turns out to be harder than originally thought, especially as her magical strength seem to grow...

Oh boy, am I glad I decided to give this book a try. I'm usually quite skeptic about fantasy books as it's probably the genre I'm most picky about but this book really caught me right away. The concept was quite interesting and I found myself on Sonea and her friends' side quite quickly. Not just because of the fucked up society they seem to live in but also because they were all so lovely and well-written. Sonea reminded me a lot of Aria Stark (in all the good ways) and it was hard not to enjoy her adventures. She's funny, complex and troubled. I just wanted the best for her, and I still do. I'm definitely Team Sonea.

I have two complaints though; the first one is the lack of gay even though I've been assured there will be more lots more gay in the second book. The other one is that it felt a bit repetitive when they were trying to find her but then it got so repetitive that it was actually more amusing than boring so I'm not sure this qualifies as an actual complaint. I'm, however, kind of disappointed I'm not a magician. It seems awesome. Maybe not Harry Potter awesome but still... c'mon. ( )
