Events are building to a climax in Sachaka as Lorkin returns from his exile with the Traitor rebels. The Traitor Queen has given Lorkin the huge task of brokering an alliance between his people and the Traitors. Lorkin has also had to become a feared black magician in order to harness the power of an entirely new kind of gemstone magic. This knowledge could transform the Guild of Magicians - or make Lorkin an outcast forever.

The Traitor Spy trilogy, which began with The Ambassador's Mission and The Rogue, is the new series set in the world of the international bestselling Black Magician trilogy.

Trudi Canavan is one of my all time favourite authors. She writes really good high fantasy and her Black Magician trilogy is one of my all time favourites. The Traitor Queen is the third and final book in the follow on series, The Traitor Spy Trilogy, set twenty years after the events of Black Magician trilogy and I therefore write this review with quite a lot of sadness that this world and these characters have finally reached their epic conclusion. read more
