The Magicians' Guild

The Black Magician Trilogy Book 1

(3)
Every year, the magicians of Imardin gather together to purge the city streets of vagrants and miscreants. As masters of the disciplines of magic, they know that no ordinary lowlife can oppose them. But their protective shield is not as impenetrable as they think. Sonea, a young vagrant slum dweller, outraged by the arrogance and high-handedness of the magicians, throws a stone at their protective shield, putting all her rage behind it. She is stunned when her puny rock manages to break through the magic shield and knocks a magician unconscious. Running for her life, Sonea seeks refuge in the underground tunnels that course through the city, for the Guild s worst fear has been realized. An untrained magician is loose, and she must be found before her nascent, uncontrolled powers destroys herself and the city of Imardin.

The Black Magician Trilogy I
von René Herrmann-Zielonka aus Regensburg (Donau EKZ) am 14.10.2011
Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Trudi Canavan schreibt keine Fantasy in der es von einem Kampf zum Nächsten geht. Es ist eher ruhig und sachlich, aber genau das gibt dieser Fantasytrilogie seinen Charme. Geeignet für jedes Lesealter, ob Mann oder Frau wird jeder Leser schnell gefesselt und merkt nicht wie die Zeit beim Lesen... Trudi Canavan schreibt keine Fantasy in der es von einem Kampf zum Nächsten geht. Es ist eher ruhig und sachlich, aber genau das gibt dieser Fantasytrilogie seinen Charme. Geeignet für jedes Lesealter, ob Mann oder Frau wird jeder Leser schnell gefesselt und merkt nicht wie die Zeit beim Lesen verfliegt. Es geht um ein junges Mädchen, was in den Armenvierteln der Stadt Imardin aufwächst. Als es zur jährlichen Säuberung kommt, in der alle armen Leute aus der Stadt vertrieben werden, befindet sich Sonea mit ihren Freunden auf dem Marktplatz und macht ihrem Unmut Luft. Plötzlich erwachen bei ihr magische Kräfte, mit denen sie einen Magier verletzt. Völlig überrascht und verängstigt flieht Sonea und versucht sich zu verstecken. Die halbe Stadt ist nun auf der Jagd nach diesem jungen Mädchen. Die Einen wollen sie töten die Anderen sind dafür sie zur Magierin auszubilden. Denn ein Mensch der seine magischen Fähigkeiten nicht beherrscht, kann ausversehen die ganze Stadt zerstören. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Sonea is a girl who has lived most of her young life in the slums and who hasn't any sympathy for the upper classes who too often abuse the poor. During the yearly 'Purge', when the magicians drive the poor and homeless out of the city before winter to make it safer and prettier for the rich, she is among a group of youngsters who throw stones and rotten fruit at them. But while the others' stones can't get through the magicians' protective shields, Sonea's goes through and strikes a magician, Fergun, unconscious. At this moment, Sonea and the magicians find out that she has magical talent, which nobody expected from a slumdweller since only the upper classes are tested for this. Sonea is afraid that the magicians want to kill her for the attack, so she hides in the slums with the help of friends and the Thieves' Guild, who expect her to be useful if she can develop her talent. But the magicians know that her uncontrolled powers will soon become a danger to her and everyone near, and when she begins to start fires and earthquakes without wanting to, she soon has to face the fact that she will need the help of the Magicians' Guild if she wants to survive. But while some magicians really want to help her and teach her, there are others who want to get rid of the unwanted slumdweller. And Fergun wants revenge for the humiliation of being struck down by a poor girl's stone... This is a suspenseful fantasy novel set in a city where the gap between rich and poor is very strong and the magicians are so far removed from the lower classes that they can't even imagine some of them to have any magical talent. The confrontation between these often arrogant, though sometimes well-meaning, magicians with a poor girl with unusual talents is well-written and entertaining. I also found both the worlds of the poor and the rich well-developed and interesting. The idea of a young outsider with unusual talents is nothing new, but the story is still a lot of fun and original enough to be a good book. I look forward to the other novels in the trilogy, 'The Novice' and 'The High Lord' and would recommend this one as a good fantasy novel.
