Review: The Magicians’ Guild – Trudi Canavan + new blog look

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 workβ€”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.
My thoughts:
 I am not gonna say much, I have a fever (at the time when I wrote this, not now)  and I still want to finish this review.
It was a nice fantasy tale about a young girl on the run as she is discovered to be a magician. She is scared they will kill her. We do get to see the conflicts in society that way. Not all is well, actually some have it really crappy.
So we have a story about running for your life. I liked the main characters and after I finished I did want more. It seemed like a nice world and I wonder how it will turn out for Sonea.

    Such dedication to write reviews while you have a fever. I did notice your new look and I complimented you on your header. It is definitely nice and clean now and everything is easy to find. I am very obsessed with keeping my blog neat and organized as well. I finally got my blog roll updated and you are on it, but I may need to change your button if you changed it up.

Luckily I did post reviews already written when really sick and here I was somewhat better. i am just crazy.My post was already up yesterday when it was not entirely finished so had my mini celebration today :)The button stayed the same. I just thought so everyone do not have to change it.And I do like things uncluttered too, so much better

    Love the way the blog looks now! I'm going to have to keep this series on my radar. For some reason I'm leery of reading new fantasy series, don't know why. I may have to get over it.

    Yaaaaay, I liked this book as well(I'm so happy when we can agree on something ;)). This trilogy just got better and better by the book in my opinion. I struggled a bit with the beginning of this one but after that it was all a pretty smooth ride. Love the new look by the way!
