If you are a fan of The Black Magician Trilogy give this a try to brush up on your favorite characters and revisit the world, but don't expect it to be as exciting as the original trilogy. Jun 22, Mjhancock rated it liked it Shelves: Ambassador's Mission is the first book in Trudi Canavan's Traitor Spy Trilogy, and it takes place about two decades after her previous trilogy, the Black Magician. A lot of the characters are carried over between the two series, but if you haven't read the first one or you're just very forgetful, like me , it's fairly easy to establish who's who.
The plot quickly splits in two, with Sonea becoming embroiled in uncovering a plot to kill the city's head thieves while her son gets into diplomatic Ambassador's Mission is the first book in Trudi Canavan's Traitor Spy Trilogy, and it takes place about two decades after her previous trilogy, the Black Magician. The plot quickly splits in two, with Sonea becoming embroiled in uncovering a plot to kill the city's head thieves while her son gets into diplomatic intrigue in a neighboring country.
There's a lot to like here. Canavan pulls off the dual plots rather well, and manages to transition her protagonist from the single young woman in the first series to a middle-aged or close to mother in this series without losing the core of what made Sonea an appealing character to begin with.
On the downside, one of the plots takes a turn where the reader is all but screaming at the protagonists to stop being idiots. And, more importantly, it's hard to shake the feeling that very little has happened by the book's end. Rather than resolve any of the major issues, it's more like everyone's been moved into their places for the next book.
It's understandable, given this is the first book in a trilogy, but a little disappointing. This saying is usually used in reference to romantic relationships, but perhaps it should also serve as a warning to authors wanting to revisit past glories.

Though the temptation to do so is, of course, perfectly understandable. Returning to the scene of a previous triumph no doubt seems like the safe and easy path to take; but how often does it turn out not to be the case? I cannot fault author, Trudi Canavan, for believing a sequel trilogy to her most successful work would be a win-win proposition. The Black Magician Trilogy was well received by critics, and loved by many readers; earning her a legion of fans. A return to the Allied Lands, twenty years after the events of the previous trilogy, to revisit an adult Sonea in a new adventure, sounds like an exciting prospect.
So what went so drastically wrong? Perhaps some of the lack of engagement can be attributed to the plot; or should I say the plots? As there are two distinct, and apparently unconnected, plots running throughout; each one with its own sub-plots.
This goes some way to explaining the lack of focus in the narrative, as Canavan tries to give both storylines equal time, hence the constant jumping back and forth between them. Much of my dissatisfaction with the narrative could have been mitigated to some extent, if I felt invested in any of the main characters, which brings me to the most disappointing aspect of the book; poor characterisation.
This was very surprising because Canavan is usually so adept at creating such distinct and memorable characters for her stories. On this occasion, however, the exact opposite is the case.
Even the returning characters, whom I was already familiar with, were shadows of their former selves. In particular, I was less than impressed with the depiction of Sonea. You would assume that a character would have undergone a significant amount of development over a period of two decades, yet Sonea seems very much like the teenage girl that she was in the previous trilogy, not the forty year old mother of an adult son that she is supposed to be in this book.
It certainly seems as though the main culprit for the lack of any truly significant moments during the story, was the desire to save everything of interest for the third book. And never in my life have I ever encountered such an abrupt ending to a book.
Upon reaching the end of the final chapter, only to turn the page and be greeted by an epilogue, I was utterly convinced that my copy of the book must be missing at least a hundred pages. It actually took several minutes to accept that this was not the case. With half the story taking place in the land of Sachaka, I was concerned that learning too much about its people and culture would have the effect of de-mystifying the Sachakans.
After all, one of the main reasons why they seemed to represent such a threat in The Black Magician Trilogy was that so little was revealed about them; they were a mystery. In summation, book one of The Traitor Spy Trilogy is a very disappointing affair. For readers who are not pre-existing fans of Trudi Canavan, there is little here to warrant reading the rest of the trilogy. But she has earned enough good will from me that I shall finish reading the next two instalments.
Although I am now beginning to wonder if Canavan will prove to be a one trick pony, if not an actual one hit wonder. Jan 30, Midnight Blue rated it really liked it Shelves: Not bad, but the ending could have been more It was very anticlimactic. But I suppose this is more like an introduction to the trilogy, so I'll be generous for the moment and wait until I finish the other books: Future me liked the following two books and recommends reading them!
It's more like one long story separated into three books, so the first one is indeed rather like an introduction. It get's more suspenseful, I promise! Dec 21, Ranting Dragon rated it liked it Shelves: Trudi Canavan is an Australian author best known for her Black Magician trilogy starring Sonea, a slum child hunted for using magic reserved for the higher classes.
The Traitor Spy Trilogy is set 20 years later with Sonea as one of two Black Magicians in the Magicians Guild and is limited to Guild grounds and the Hospices that offer free healing throughout the city.

The Ultimate Pop Rock Fake Book. Joel Whitburn
An opportunity comes up to travel as an assistant with Ambassador Dannyl to Sachaka, a land where those who are Magicians are only Black Magicians and the culture is strongly tied to slavery unlike his homeland.
Lorkin wants to research the history of magic in order to find something that will help Kyralia, during which he wakes up to an assassination attempt and flees with the slave that saves him.
Murder Most Foul Cery is a Thief from the previous novels who now has a wife, two sons and an estranged daughter. He enlists the help of a former friend, Sonea, and together they try to find the Thief Hunter. Flat-lining While I feel like the novel was solid, it felt a bit average. It was neither bad nor was it really good. I found the hunt for the Thief Hunter to be engaging and the mystery of it was the best part of the novel.
He seemed to fall in love with the woman for no real reason and she with him. She always seemed to be reacting to the circumstances she was in rather than taking charge.
Sequal-ity The book has a strong ending that brings some closure in the Thief Hunter being discovered, but also creates questions that make me interested in the sequel.
It definitely creates more interest in the sequel and is one of the best parts of the book. Why you should read this book? Non trovarsi interrotti nel bel mezzo della narrazione, con ancora la parte migliore a venire. Trame che potremmo riassumere a due: La Canavan sceglie quindi di seguire due strade, Con Sonea si rifugia nel porto sicuro dei vecchi, collaudati personaggi, che opera nell'altrettanto familiare capitale Kyraliana.
Devo dire di aver apprezzato maggiormente la parte con Lorkin protagonista. Secondo me, infine, avrebbe dovuto curare meglio la caratterizzazione dei personaggi.
A volte i loro comportamenti stridevano con quanto mostratoci di loro fino a quel momento. Ad esempio Sonea, all'inizio sembra voler muovere mari e monti, per salvare suo figlio; per poi contraddirsi alla fine, quando accetta la decisione del figlio di rimanere con le sue "rapitrici" troppo facilmente, quasi con stanca rassegnazione. That world Building! This book was huge, like nearly pages I loved this world building, I loved the idea of it too.
That may be more of a personal issue but usually when there are more than a three person POV, I just get tired, but I'll go more into that in a moment. In this land is where magicians rule in guilds but those who are practitioners of 'black' magic are feared That world Building! In this land is where magicians rule in guilds but those who are practitioners of 'black' magic are feared and nearly chained to their rooms.
Where Thieves rule and kill one another. Where a boy seeks to live up to his father's hero status. There is plotting in the darkness of that land. Cery is a thief who rules the North, his family was assassinated, and suddenly no one is able to live without looking over their shoulders. A thief-hunter wants to destroy them all and has killed many.
Cery seeks the aid of Black magician Sonea and the two find themselves in a lot more trouble than they originally anticipated. Sonea's son wants to live up to his father's heroic status as the one who saved the land. He promptly decides to become the Ambassador's assistant to a turbulent land but finds himself a murder target instead.
He is rescued by a girl. He discovers a wild magic unlike any he has ever seen. However, I didn't really connect with any of the characters. It's extremely inventive and really ingenious, but the way it started made me feel like i was reading the second or third book rather than the first. I had to constantly remind myself what was what, therefore, the back of the book with the index page became my best friend.
The romance wasn't swoon- worthy to me. It's actually pretty minimal. Not in the ways i usually liked but maybe that's because i didn't really feel invested in these characters. Overall pretty good. The writing was good but I didn't have that Alice feeling of just falling into that world.
Have a go at it, you may enjoy it loads more than i did! Stay awesome! Jan 18, Nickey rated it liked it Recommends it for: Fans of Trudi Canavan. I was surprised to find myself struggling though this book. I have read seven other of Trudi Canavan's books and got through most of them within two or three days. This time it took me over a week. I think the two main problems are that I read The Magician's Apprentice before this one and that Canavan placed this story twenty years after the Black Magician Trilogy.
Due to the circumstance that I knew a lot of the historical aspects of the story world from TMA it was very unnerving and almost borin I was surprised to find myself struggling though this book. Due to the circumstance that I knew a lot of the historical aspects of the story world from TMA it was very unnerving and almost boring to have Lorkin and Dannyl slowly stumble upon bits and pieces of the same throughout the plot.
It wouldn't have hurt the book to loose a good pages in the beginning - that would have quickened the pace and given room to actual, new information. Before, most of the main characters were more or less my age - now they are suddenly twenty years older and they didn't exactly develop the way I would have liked them.
Sonea has grown timid and scared to do a misstep. I would have loved to see her explode and do what SHE thinks is right. She is still grieving over the loss of Akkarin and yet she lets the Guild decide to let Lorkin go without putting up fight. Where has all her fight gone? Regin has turned nice. And Cerry is old. Even he keeps pointing that out. Following a twenty-something around town chasing a murderer is fun and exciting - following a forty-something is just painful.
It says a lot that still his plot arch was the one that I enjoyed the most. Dannyl hasn't actually changed that much, it's just that his quest for more research is rather boring to the facts mentioned above. And newcomer Lorkin, I don't see much of either of his parents in him. Canavan had to actually point it out to her readers.
All in all he seems shallowly written and I can't follow his decision making process at all. His behaviour just seems irrational.
Jul 01, Monica rated it liked it. It took me a while to get into this novel, and though the plot was entertaining I never really connected with any of the characters. I plan to read more by this author in the future, and hopefully some of here other series will appeal to me more. Que bonito volver a este Universo!.
Es interesante como se puede ver la influencia de los acontecimientos sucedidos en esos primeros tres libros y el impacto que tuvo en el Gremio y los magos. Hay un crecimiento y desarrollo evidente de los personajes y tramas, no tanto hacia el lado de la intriga sin Que bonito volver a este Universo!. Aug 29, Irina Villacis rated it liked it.
