FORGET WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE NATURE OF MAGIC.
In a world where an industrial revolution is powered by magic, Tyen, a student of archaeology, unearths a sentient book called Vella. Once a young sorcerer-bookbinder, Vella was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerers of history. Since then she has been collecting information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen's world faces.
Elsewhere, in an land ruled by the priests, Rielle the dyer's daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows she has a talent for it, and that there is a corrupter in the city willing to teach her how to use it — should she dare to risk the Angels' wrath.
But not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe. Not the nature of magic, nor the laws of their lands... and not even the people they trust.

In the end, I really enjoyed this, but I have to admit I struggled for the first portion of it. Multiple protagonists are one of my favorite things in a book, but I felt like in this case we got to know one of them way too much before meeting the other, so I resented Rielle for quite a bit for "in...
I'd forgotten I'd wanted to stop reading this authors books. It was the cover that dragged me in. It was the title. It was the overall rating. It was everything and everything else. I wonder why I cannot remember the name of this author as being one I no longer want to read.
Thief's Magic is the first in a new trilogy by Trudi Canavan. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it & at the end was left wanting more. Pity I'll have to wait till September for the next instalment Angel of Storms.
