"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.

Meine Meinung Wenn ich mir so den Klappentext durchlese, klingt Sonea viel rebellischer, als sie in Wirklichkeit ist. Denn eigentlich gerät sie nur in einen Strudel aus Zufällen und in eine Welt, aus der sie Jahre zuvor dank ihrer Tante und ihrem Onkel entkommen ist. Cery sorgt sich so gut er kann u...
3.5 stars. The Magicians' Guild doesn't quite get 4 stars from me because all of the running around and hiding the main character Sonea does drags on for too long. I think if we had gotten past this part a lot sooner and more would have happened I would have liked it enough to give it 4 stars. I was...
Sonea lives in the slums with her Aunt and Uncle and is no longer allowed to associate herself with her friends and their gang. However, during the annual Purge, she meets them again and gets mixed up in their stone-throwing hatred towards the Guild Magicians. When the deep, concealed magic she has ...
