Publisher's Summary

In the remote village of Mandryn, Tessia serves as assistant to her father, the village Healer - much to the frustration of her mother, who would rather she found a husband. But her life is about to take a very unexpected turn. When treating a patient at the residence of the local magician, Lord Dakon, Tessia is forced to fight off the advances of a visiting Sachakan mage - and instinctively uses magic. She now finds herself facing an entirely different future as Lord Dakon's apprentice.
But along with the excitement and privilege, Tessia is about to discover that her magical gifts bring with them a great deal of responsibility. Events are brewing that will lead nations into war, rival magicians into conflict, and spark an act of sorcery so brutal that its effects will be felt for centuries.

Good story, shame about the glitches

Yet again Trudi Canavan immerses us in the beautifully detailed world first encountered in the Magician's trilogy. This book is well read, and the characters and place names become familiar to us. Unfortunately the recording suffers from glitches, meaning there are longer than usual pauses in odd places. These are not sufficient to really spoil the telling of the story, but do somewhat break the spell.
