      The second book in this series and not quite as good as the first. I felt there was not enough content for the length of the book so it dragged a bit in places. As in the first one I enjoyed the characters although I did get a bit tired of waiting for Sonea to use her powers and turn Regin into the rat that he was. (Sadly she never does). Having said all that I read the whole book in record time so it must have had something going for it. And I still want to read the next one!

      How PATHETIC did Sonea turn out to be in this book?Again, the author drags part of the story, aka where Sonea gets bullied by some of the rich, spoilt novices, out for pretty much 2/3 of the book, needlessly I may add.I only gave this two stars because throughout the whole book, whilst the style of writing is still appreciable, I found myself completely aghast at the pathetic, lacking in backbone and self-doubting creature that she turned Sonea into!We are talking about a young, determined indiv [...]

      This read was okay. I'm literally on a fence as to what I'm actually feeling about it. I like the characters in the book but found that the author drag out the storyline unnecessarily. I found myself getting bored frequently and that is a big No No when I read a book. The heroine in this read also played the victim role way to long. I seriously reached a point that I didn't even care what happen to her as it was pointless. My official rating is 3 Stars and I'll eventually finished the trilogy ( [...]

      A surprisingly good fantasy title. The plot reminds me quite of Harry Potter (i.e. protagonist in school of wizardry, unusual circumstances of birth, befriended by the school headmaster), but the plot is much more suspenseful and interesting. And none of that ANGST-CRAWLING-IN-MY-SKIN rubbish that one usually sees in this genre of stories.Mature plot, snappy writing, interesting characters. What more could one ask for?

    5. Elise on said:

      After reading this book, I'm really starting to love the series. The first book didn't really get interesting until Sonea got to the Guild. With this book, though, it remained interesting from beginning to end. I can relate to Sonea's goal to be a Healer. And I really approved of Trudi Canavan's view of homosexuality that she portrayed through two of her characters. I won't mention the names here to prevent spoilers. Seeing the progress of one of those characters, both in the journey and realiza [...]

      Do you know that feeling, when you backpacks weights 10 kg after going to a library? And one single book contains 500+ pages and you have to cycle uphill and all the way you're mad on yourself that you took so many books, when you have other things to do? Your studies, your work, your crafts, etc? And when you start reading a book at 11 pm and finish it after 3 am. And you forget that it weighted tone, that you had something else to do, that it's already morning --- you're fascinated, charmed an [...]

      It's entirely possible that I was just in the wrong mood to read this book. The first one in the series was okay, I guess. I thought of it as brain-dead yahoo-fair. Bathtub reading, if you know what I mean. Simplistic and derivitive but harmless. I thought I saw where the author was going and was willing to follow her to the next book, should the opertunity land in my path. Well, it did and I did and here we are. Unimpressed.The simplicity continues (all poor people noble and good! all wealthy [...]

      Olaylar olaylar demek isterdim ama bir iki şey hariç çok durağan gidiyor yahu kitap. Akkarin çok hızlı öğrendi mesela.Yada bütün bir kitap Regin'in Sonea ile uğraşmasını okuduk durduk.Artık son kitapta biraz hız kazanmalı konu.Son olarak bana Akkarin'in kötü bir niyeti yokmuş da yaptığı bütün kötülükler Loca'nın selameti açısındanmış gibi geliyor.

      This was a spectacular continuation to the Black Magician series. After reading the first book in the series I wasn’t sure if I would continue it; but I am so glad I did. This book is much better than the first one and incredibly interesting and engaging.I listened to this on audiobook and I really love the narrator of these books. He is a pleasure to listen to and does an awesome job with character voices and emotion. I would highly recommend listening to this series on audiobook.There is so [...]

    10. Dhuaine on said:

      Think of this book as what a Harry Potter novel would look like if it was only about Harry vs. Draco struggle. Except here it's Sonea vs Entire School all-out war with the protagonist being 1) a total victim, 2) accepting everything they throw at her, 3) not fighting back, 4) barely protecting herself, 5) barely accepting help from third parties. Antagonists consist of nearly all the students, most of the teachers, staff and a kitchen sink. Rare people who are on Sonea's side try to help her a l [...]

    11. Pam Baddeley on said:

      This is volume 2 of Canavan's first fantasy trilogy, and a much more enjoyable read than volume 1 (which had very little plot). By contrast, in 'The Novice', a great deal happens and a lot of the subplots weave into the main plot, of Sonea's experiences and progress as a magician's novice. Due to her origins in the slums, she meets a great deal of bigotry from other novices and even magicians, and is bullied by a classmate, Regin, who manages to get the rest of the pupils on his side, and later [...]

      ERMAGERD I'm so intrigued by all that's happening. Going to start book 3 immediately because I NEED MORE

    13. Inge on said:

      The Novice begins right where The Magicians’ Guild takes off. Sonea has started learning magic and she’s by far the best of her group. But because she’s a girl from the slums – and therefore the victim of prejudice – she’s subject to many harassments from other students, especially Regin, a boy from her class. He’ll do anything to make her life a living hell and send her back to ‘where she belongs’. But Sonea is strong and she could give Regin a run for his money. Then there’ [...]

      Finally I felt toward the end of the second book that things were picking up. The story has been very good, but too drawn out for my liking. Now, things are starting to get real. Am looking forward to book 3.

    15. Biene on said:

      Wirklich sehr gut und einfach nur einnehmend dieses Buch. Man muss einfach mit fiebern und steckt mitten drin. Ich liebe es, hoffentlich wird der dritte Teil ebenso großartig!

    16. Louise on said:

      This was a brilliant! I thought it was even better then the first book (The Magicianbs Guild). Can't wait to read The High Lord.

    17. Andrea Salayová on said:

      “Believe me. There was nothing good in always being second place."I liked the second book even better than the first one! Mainly because this one was set in the magical school, which is the best setting ever imo. I loved how Sonea was learning all the magical stuff and attended classes. And there was a couple of great antagonists! Overall, very satisfying read. Can´t wait to see where the story goes next!5*

    18. cat reads on said:

      It's been a long time since I was this frustrated with a book. There were so many moments of, "Why doesn't Sonea shield? Why doesn't she call for help? Why the f**k is she allowing this to keep happening?! And why ffs are the adults not doing a damn thing about all of this!?!" For a strong character, in this story she does the most illogical things, but then, how dare logical progression interfere with the plot the author wanted. >.< Seriously, Sonea gets into a huge amount of trouble beca [...]

    19. Tammie on said:

      I found this second book in the Black Magician Trilogy to be much more compelling than the first. I had a hard time putting The Novice down. We see some character development here for Sonea and Dannyl and are left to continue wondering what exactly is going on with the High Lord, although by the end of the book there are some clues. He isn't a very well developed character at this point at all, and as the third book is titled The High Lord I am pretty sure we will get a lot more of him there.I h [...]

      This book was a delight to read. I enjoyed every single page. I loved it! “There's always a bit of truth in each rumour, the trouble is finding out which bit.”This book is the sequel to The Magician’s Guild. It followed the continuation of Sonea’s story. In this novel she has entered the university to study magic but is met with resistance from some of her class members and teachers. But is she safe now? The High Lord Akkarin harbours a secret that is far darker than his black robes.I am [...]

    21. Arminion on said:

      At first I liked this book. Things forward. Very soon, however I became bored and frustrated. Why? Because of the whole bully business that goes for the ENTIRE book. It never stops. It just goes on and on and on. I really didn't know what I hated more, the fact that Sonea was acting like a punching bag that entire time, or the fact that Canavan devoted so much time to this trivial subplot. By the time Sonea finally shows some teeth, it's already too late and the feeling of victory is hol [...]

    23. Ornella (Nyx) on said:

      There is something missing for me with these books. They are 'good' but not as engaging as I would like them to be, or more accurately I think they should have elicited more enthusiasm from me what with all that's going on. There is/was a serial killer on the loose, more problems for Sonea took place, Lorlen, Dannyl and Rothen encountered their own issues, and yet, it was kinds of blah. I think it's the same problem as the last book. The pacing. Everything is just moving SO SLOWLY. The thing is [...]

      This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm/The Novice starts a few months after The Magicians Guild. Sonea is now a novice at the Guild but faces a tough time from the other novices who are distrustful because she is a girl from the slums. Dannyl is now ambassador to Elyne and is on a mission to rediscover ancient magic. At the same time Sonea, Rothen and Administrator Lorlen have to find a way of dealing with and stopping the High Lord Akkarin from using his black magic.As I sai [...]

      Wow. Judging by the general rating (4,01!) and after over 500 pages-long intro that The Magicians' Guild was, I expected a bit of an action and a bit of a story. What I got was 600+ pages of another prologue. I'm a bit tired, when will we (ever?) get to some decent action?I'm aware that's YA, but that's not an excuse to see it poorly written. The protagonist is a weak girl, constantly bullied, refuses help and when she finally stands up for herself, she's sure to fail the duel. This kind of a st [...]

      This story is just fun to read. Fast paced and so many different POVs. Overall a great readWe get the story of Sonea, Lorlen, Rothen and Dannyl in bits. We get to meet Rothen's son Dorrien who has feelings for Sonea which she returns. We get to meet a bullying loser high class guy Regin-whatever-his-name-is.I had fun towards the end when you know that Sonea would strike back for all the humiliation and embarrassment she faces at his hand.(view spoiler)[It's fun to see when Annakin the High Lord [...]

      It was such an amazing book. I loved it from the beginning. It is amazing how I got so interested and absorbed by the story where magic is the central theme but also the less used one. It is a story that occurred in a magic academy but it is more about friendship, trust, mystery, and a lot of political issues. I love this book so much I can't evenAnd Dannyl!!!? I am so happy for him. The slowest burning romance ever (not really, is just that I am very anxious). Agh! I am so pleasantly surprised [...]

    29. Matilda on said:

      I was really happy by the first 300-pages of the book and thought that was going to be a truly impressive read. However I was not really pleased with the main string of the second part and thought it was not as well as it could have been.But it was still a really pleasant and enthralling read. This is quite a big volume and I was happy to want to read all the time. Of course I want to read the conclusion now. And spoiler I bought it today in a charity shop.
