    1. Trudi Canavan s new prequel to her Black Magician trilogy is a decent book that just moves along too slowly It is a story about the origins of Higher Magic, how the wasteland between Schakan and Krylia was formed, the origins of the Magician Guild, and a female group of survivors of the horrible war between Sachakan and Krylia Like many authors who write these semi historical purpose books that is my name for a novel that attempts to answer historical facts or show how events occurred in the cen [...]


    2. Definitely a worthy prequel to the Black Magician Trilogy I enjoyed the story and the fact that it wasn t entirely predictable I would definitely recommend it to any of Trudi Canavan s fans The only thing I had an issue with was that the story jumped around between characters than I thought necessary, making it a bit harder to relate to the main characters.


    3. Good Intro to Fantasy but not Groundbreaking.I have not read any of Trudi Canavan s Black Magician Trilogy THE MAGICIAN S GUILD, THE NOVICE, and THE HIGH LORD , although I have thought about it for a while It is obvious that this edition to the world introduced in the original trilogy was written after and I can only guess at what is to be the beginning of the trilogy.This is a wonderful book for people just getting into the fantasy genre It has everything that is to be expected in a fantasy wor [...]


    4. I ve come across Trudi Canavan many times when looking for good fantasy reads, and I finally decided to give it a go The first few pages of The Magician s Apprentice were quite exciting, I thought Tessia would be an interesting character But further on I started to get doubts, the plot was a bit shallow and most of all, the characters were really flat Having read awesome books like A song of ice and fire where there s plenty of characters and each of them has so much history and depth that they [...]


    5. The Magician s Apprentice is considered 0.5 in Trudi Canavan s The Black Magician Trilogy It was written after, but serves as a set up for The Magicians Guild, which I have not read It mainly follows the story of Tessia, a young healer apprenticed to her father, who discovers her magical abilities when she deflects the advances of a Sachakan mage She becomes apprenticed to Lord Dakon, joining his apprentice Jayan, who initially disdains the fact that a he must share his education with a woman.Th [...]

    7. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm The Magician s Apprentice is about Tessia, the local healer s daughter, who unknowingly uses magic after fending of the advances of a visiting Sachakan mage, she becomes an apprentice to the magician Lord Dakon alongside fellow apprentice Jayan However she would soon learn that with her magical gifts comes with responsibilities and not all is peaceful as it seems between Sachakan and Kyralia This prequel, set a few centuries before the b [...]


    8. Actual Rating 2.5 starsWell, I liked it, but I certainly didn t love it The premise sounded very promising I love fantasies about strong, young women discovering their magical powers and learning how to control them to fight against evil and the writing was certainly quite acceptable But, somehow, this one fell a little short for me For one thing, the pacing for the most part was very plodding and slow and the plot was rather dull in places There was a lot of talk about fighting, but not really [...]


    9. Well written, solidly characterised, nicely constructed But dull.Might be a good one for those who are new to Fantasy a way in, as Brooks Sword of Shannara , Eddings Pawn of Prophecyor Ray Feist sMagicianwas for many And for those who are fans of the Black Magician series, of which this is a prequel , I can see this being a much desired book But for me the plot was just way, way too obvious, the characters a little too cookie cut I lost interest very quickly.


    10. The Magicians Apprentice is 0.5 in the The Black Magician Trilogy The first instalment in the trilogy was published in 2001 and this book was published in 2009 Perhaps I should have started the series in publishing order rather than story order, but I spent most of the novel questioning why this was actually a novel I found it really hard to justify this 0.5 instalment needing to be 600 pages long, especially when it was published several years after the actual series The novel uses split POVs a [...]


    11. Die Vorgeschichte von Sonea und Die Gilde der Schwarzen Magier Tessia w chst als die Tochter eines Dorfheilers in Kyralia auf, und nichts w nscht sie sich sehnlicher, als selbst Heilerin zu werden Doch dann entdeckt Lord Dakon in Tessia die seltene Gabe der Magie Bei allem Stolz ber ihre unerwartete Bestimmung erkennt Tessia jedoch schon bald, dass mit ihren magischen Kr ften auch gro e Gefahren einhergehen Denn Kyralia steht kurz vor einem Krieg mit dem Nachbarreich Sachaka und Tessia muss schn [...]


    12. This book threads several stories together, and sadly some don t work as well as others which just pulls them all down The main story is great light fantasy fiction involving kingdoms and wars and power struggles and romance Magic is incorporated as a simple type of medieval weapon than a complex fantasy element This story features a coherent and well developed plot and a strong central female character who s virtue and common sense has a good influence on those around her, and eventually wins [...]


    13. Retardation galore The prequel to Black Magician Trilogy is riddled with boring, tedious narrative, moralizing talk for primary school kids and tons of ridiculously funny gaffes that would make people on literary constructive crit boards roll with laughter It doesn t explain anything about the magic from the trilogy This book s setting doesn t even match the trilogy and some of the situations plainly contradict the rules laid out in the other books Overall it looks like a rehashed draft or a ret [...]


    14. Although this didn t have the same magical introduction to a new world for me as The Magicians Guild, I think someone starting with this book may get some of that same feeling, although the pace at which the larger universe is introduced lacks some of the details of the first book.However, the plot is essentially the story the first book should have had The main character, Tessia, essentially has the same personality and motivations as Sonea of the original trilogy, and the same issues with fall [...]


    15. Well, once I read the other reviews and figured out this was a prequel to a trilogy, the bizarre pacing made sense The narrative switches between several characters, something that rarely works for me I always end up liking one character than another and I can never get into a groove one way or the other The same was true here I really liked Lord Dakon and Tessia but I could have done without the others, especially the character that popped in about halfway through the book Sachka just showed [...]


    16. No parece que le falte medio libro como a los de la primera trilog a de Kyralia, pero la narraci n sigue sin ser demasiado buena La historia es curiosa aunque predecible una vez conoces a los personajes y las descripciones son demasiado escuetas A veces tienes la sensaci n de haberte perdido una parte completa y en realidad solo te has saltado una l nea Por mucha batalla y guerra que haya en una historia, si no sabes narrarla, siempre le faltar sustancia al libro Leer la ltima parte de las cr ni [...]


    17. Ok i LOVED this book Im pretty sure i was hooked as i just couldnt put it down I thought the character development of the main character and her story was put forward well and in a well spaced easy to understand manner The story itself did go slow at times but overall, was a decent storyline.I look forward to reading from this author You can also find my reviews here lilythenovelnerd.wordpress tho they are alot colourful


    18. As the tooltip for one star says I did not like it It would not get 1 in 10 because it was not that bad but it was 2 3 times too long The amount of needless dialogue, fragments and sentences was overwhelming There was even one POV character that could have easily been thrown away and it would improve the flow of reading It the book was pruned to 200 300 pages it would be a nice and easy read With over 700 it was a dull pain.


    19. This was good, but nothing special I was able to put it down for days on and and really only finished it just to get it off my plate I guess that isn t much of a glowing review I gave it 3 stars rather than the 2 it maybe sounds like because it was a well written story with interesting characters, it just wasn t doing it for me right now.




    20. Magie ist die Vorgeschichte zur Trilogie Die Gilde der schwarzen Magier Es geht um Tessia, ein sogenanntes Naturtalent, bei der sich Magie selber gebildet hat W hrend sie ihre Ausbildung bei Lord Dakon antritt, durchstreifen Sachakaner das Land und hinterlassen Verw stung Es kommt zu einem Krieg und s mtliche kyralischen Magier sind dazu aufgerufen, sich der Bedrohung zu stellen Die Invasion verlangt vieles, doch wird den Magiern klar, dass es vom Vorteil sein kann, Wissen zu teilen und gemeinsa [...]


    21. Set in the same world, but back in time, as Canavan s first trilogy, the Black Magician Trilogy, this is in a way back story, and in a way, not I thought it was a standalone novel about what happened between Kyralia and Sachaka, two neighbouring countries, and importantly, about how black magic or higher magic as it used to be called came to be banned and the knowledge of it repressed Well, it is a standalone Fantasy novel, it is about the war between Kyralia and Sachaka, which is least importa [...]

    23. I realized that from the beginning of my reading challenge you may think that I read mostly non fiction You may be surprised but my favorite genre of books is different I love science fiction and good fantasy In fact I agree with the people who say that good fantasy is a good literature but good science fiction is the best possible fiction genre you can read This time I am going to write about a good fantasy book by Trudi Canavan entitled The Magician s Apprentice so don t expect eulogies it is [...]


    24. The Magician s Apprentice is a wonderful read A stand alone prequel to The Black Magician s Trilogy For those of you like me, who have read The Magician s Guild, The Novice and The High Lord You ll love this story Set hundreds of years before the events of The Magicians Guild, The Magician s Apprentice is the perfect introduction to the world of Trudi Canavan s international bestselling Black Magician Trilogy.In the remote village of Mandryn, Tessia serves as assistant to her father, the village [...]


    25. Somehow this ended up in my notes section instead Oops.I know I can t completely judge this book when I haven t finished it I read about five chapters In addition to that, I realize that this isn t the plot of the book But I really don t want to read a fantasy book based on the premise that there are two main countries next to one another, one is similar to Europe in the Middle Ages with magic added and the other similar to India with magic added, where the white people are slave free while havi [...]


    26. Carino, ma mi aspettavo di meglio L ho iniziato a leggere perch sto leggendo ora la trilogia della Canavan e mi sta piacendo molto, questo libro secondo me non all altezza degli altri La protagonista un p un peso morto per tutta la storia, sa curare e va bene ma non combatte mai attivamente e la sua unica dote sembra quella di essere l unica donna in un gruppo di soli uomini La trama va molto a rilento, tanto che per le prime 300 pagine ci si chiede com che non si ancora vista una battaglia degn [...]


    27. Summary from 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 long hours of study and self discipline also offer opportunities than she had ever h [...]


    28. Normally I think that I could never tire of epically long epic fantasies, because it has to take a special author to write a 500 page story However, I really had to drudge myself through THE MAGICIAN S APPRENTICE, and very quickly began to skim things until around the halfway point, when I decided that I wasn t getting anything as a reader or writer out of the act of reading this book, because it is almost painfully unoriginal and underwritten THE MAGICIAN S APPRENTICE reads like the bare bones [...]
