Book 1 of Millennium's Rule
Little, Brown Book Group UK
I was so happy when i found out about this new series, because herBlack Magician trilogy
is on the top of my favorite books.
So i am very thankful to the Orbit publisher for providing me the book.
In this story we actually follow to story's. One is about Tyen, the magic and archeology student
and the second is about Rielle the daughter of a good-standing dye-works family.
And this to stories are very different, and they never meet each other, never intercept. Ah well, maybe they will in the second book.
Anyway, the stories even happen in different countries and the only similarity is one big problem they have.
Namely, they are running out of magic.
In one country they use it as fuel for different kind of machines so they spend it a lot and fast and in the other country they don't spend as much but
that's because only priests are allowed to use it.
There is romance, there is action, there are secrets and gossip, there is friendship and betrayal, there are so many things happening!
The world building and the characterization is very advanced and thorough, i was completely engrossed in this fantastic story
and couldn't let it go all the 500+ pages.
It all felt really true and believable- the dialog, the social interactions, the mean enemies and the not so flawless friends.
Trudi Canavan again proved us she is a seasoned and talented author and she definitely has an enormous imagination and knows very well what she is doing.
It is smart and very well written so i definitely recommend it to all the fantasy fans who like to have in a fantasy book a bit more beside just swords,battles dragon and spells:)
