The Black Magician Trilogy includes: The Magicians Guild, The Novice, and The High Lord all by Trudi Canavan


This series is about a street girl from the slum section of town who accidentally discovers that she has magical talent. Students are only accepted into the Magicians Guild if they are from well-to-do families...and there the dilema begins for both the student and The Guild.


This is well written and a page turner! You won't want to wait to get the second and third books. I highly recommend it!

Tamie,


Are these books young adult or adult literature?

Good question. It was in the Adult Lit section. Given some of the themes, I would probably say it was appropriately placed.

I know that many fantasy series, like the Shannarra Series by Terry Brooks, are in the adult section, but I recommend them to students all the time. This one is not one that I would recommend to students.
