Publisher's Summary

Each year the magicians of Imardin gather together to purge the city streets of vagrants, urchins, and miscreants. Masters of the disciplines of magic, they know that no one can oppose them. But their protective shield is not as impenetrable as they believe. Sonea, angry, frustrated, and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, hurls a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. To the amazement of all who bear witness, the stone passes unhindered through the barrier and renders a magician unconscious.The guild's worst fear has been realised: there is an untrained magician loose on the streets. She must be found before her uncontrolled powers unleash forces that will destroy both her and the city that is her home. The Magicians' Guild is a blistering new fantasy adventure from a debut author skilled in both world-building and storytelling. The trilogy continues with The Novice and The High Lord.

Disappointing

I was disappointed by this book. It was slow moving and frustrating, I just wanted to slap the heroine. I struggled to finish the book.

Excellent!

I really enjoy fantasy books and this series (of which this story is the first of three) is my favorate. This story is good, the second (The Apprentice) is better and the last (The High Lord) is fantastic!

I really enjoyed the reading of the book in this audio and can't wait for the rest of the series to be released.

The trillogy is the best I have read for a while!

This is a great book, though a little slow in setting the scene, it picks up pace. By the time you have read the second book, you cant stop at the end, so have the third one to hand!! Just a great story. I am looking forward to reading more from Ms Canavan.
