"He had given her too much. He had given her everything."
The High Lord is the third and final book in Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy. It begins one year after the ending of the previous book in the series, The Novice, following on immediately from the events that unfolded at the end of book 2. This book signals the finale of the trilogy in an exciting and unforeseeable culmination of events.
"There's always a bit of truth in each rumour, the trouble is finding out which bit."
The Novice is the second book in the Black Magician Trilogy and, like the first, it was an enjoyable read, presenting our protagonists with a whole new set of difficulties to overcome as they are placed in completely different settings.
