A highly enjoyable fantasy adventure and the start of a new series by an acclaimed and prolific author. Two parallel stories unfold in very different locations. The first plot concerns a young sorcerer who steals a truly remarkable book, leading to a magical pursuit across continents. The second focuses on a girl who defies her parents and her marriage prospects by falling in love with an artist. It also contains magic but rather less ‘running for your life’ so is a softer counterpart to the high adventure of the boy’s escape. Presumably they will meet up in a subsequent volume. We know what to expect from a storyteller of Canavan’s expertise and this book delivers: thrills, magic, love and a revelation about the very nature of reality. Wonderful stuff. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Circe

Circe is the amazing sequel to The Song of Achilles by Madelline Miller.

"I remember Circe was one of the challenges met by Odysseus, the one who turned men into pigs. The beautiful character who narrates this story is that same “wicked witch” but a far cry from how Homer portrayed her. She is lovely, misunderstood, wilful and brilliant, a strong woman slowly growing into her power." - Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Thief's Magic by Trudi Canavan

International No. 1 bestselling author Trudi Canavan returns with her most powerful and thrilling adventure yet. In a world where magic powers an industrial revolution, Tyen, a student of archaeology, unearths a sentient book called Vella. Once a young sorcerer-bookbinder, Vella was transformed 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 a land ruled by the priests, Rielle has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows she has a talent for it, and that a corrupter is willing to teach her - 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 - and not even the people they trust. Escape to a new world. Discover the magic of Trudi Canavan.
