Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"A wonderfully and meticulously detailed world, and an edge-of-the-seat plot, this book is a must for lovers of good fantasy." (Jennifer Fallon)

Best book I have heard in a long time

When I started out reading this trilogy,I thought the book 1 was good,a little slow at times,but we need time to let her build the characters and let us get to know them,by book 2 we knew them all and were able to enjoy the story and let it wrap itself around us,by the end of book 3 I felt as if I was there with the characters,and when someone died I felt like I lost a friend,Bravo Ms. Canavan,I have not enjoyed a book this much in a LONG time,and I look forward to more of your work.

Wonderful book

Where does The High Lord rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The whole Black Magician's trilogy was a wonderful group of books. At the end of the series, it made me long for more. I found that Miss Trudi wrote another series with Sonea as a main character. I am interested in reading that. I am currently enjoying Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Never underestimate someone with humble beginnings.
