Overview

Taking place hundreds of years before the events of The Magicians' Guild, The Magician's Apprentice is the new novel set in the world of Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy.

In the remote village of Mandryn, Tessia serves as assistant to her father, the village Healer. Her mother would rather she found a husband. But her life is about to take a very unexpected turn.

When the advances of a visiting Sachakan mage get violent, Tessia unconsciously taps unknown reserves of magic to defend herself. Lord Dakon, the local magician, takes Tessia under his wing as an apprentice.

The hours are long and the work arduous, but soon an exciting new world opens up to her. There are fine clothes and servants and - to Tessia's delight - regular trips to the great city of Imardin.

However, Tessia is about to discover that her magical gifts bring with them a great deal of responsibility. For a storm is approaching that threatens to tear her world apart.

Editorial Reviews

Village girl Tessia had not intended to become a magician. Only the sudden, unwelcome advances of a visiting Sachakan mage provoked her to use her latent magical powers. Taken under the wing of the adept Lord Dakon, she gradually masters the disciplines and skills of her new craft. With her talents come rewards: fine clothes and servants at her bidding, even trips to the magnificent city of Imardin. Enmeshed in wonderful new life, Tessia cannot recognize the first signs that terrible troubles are brewing in the world of sorcery. Set 600 years before the events of the Black Magician Trilogy, The Magician's Apprentice serves as a thrilling prequel to that celebrated epic.
