"We should expect this young woman to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician."
This year, like every other, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city of undesirables. Cloaked in the protection of their sorcery, they move with no fear of the vagrants and miscreants who despise them and their work—until one enraged girl, barely more than a child, hurls a stone at the hated invaders . . . and effortlessly penetrates their magical shield.
What the Magicians' Guild has long dreaded has finally come to pass. There is someone outside their ranks who possesses a raw power beyond imagining, an untrained mage who must be found and schooled before she destroys herself and her city with a force she cannot yet control.
It gets a bit slow after the initial hook of Sonea discovering her magic but once past that it picks up and I couldn't put it down. It was very creative, I'm planning on reading the sequels!
Great world building
This series is amazing! I have never read a book series in which I can truthfully say that I loved all the characters. The humor, the detail and world building put into the book are fantastic! I was completely enthralled with the books and could’t put them down and the ending had me crying.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had the feel of middle-ages type setting, while still being an easy read. I will definitely be purchasing book #2!
