"You want to know the truth." Sonea has learned much since she was but a penniless urchin possessing an awesome untapped ability. She has earned the grudging respect of her fellow novices and a place in the Magicians' Guild. But there is much she wishes she had never learned—what she witnessed, for example, in the underground chamber of the mysterious High Lord Akkarin . . . and the knowledge that the Guild is being observed closely by an ancient fearsome enemy. Still, she dares not ignore the terrifying truths the High Lord would share with her, even though she fears it may be base trickery, a scheme to use her astonishing powers to accomplish his dark aims. For Sonea knows her future is in his hands—and that only in the shadows will she achieve true greatness . . . if she survives.

The high Lord was definitely the best book in The Black Magician trilogy. It had more depth, more action, and more romance. I might have given this 5 stars if what happens at the end wouldn't have happened. Akkarin's death. WHY!!! Killing off the most interesting character in the trilogy and the ma...
A fitting conclusion to the series... And yes, I was right about the red herring. Akkarin and Cery play a larger role in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about them. I am not sure about Savara's character though - she seemed forcefully inserted. Sonea's character played out well towards th...
Things I liked about this series:- engaging- interesting magic system- clever- fairly well-writtenThings I did not:- weird pacing- Sonea's relationship...at least it bucks YA trends and it's not Regin- cohesiveness of the trilogy
