I’m re-reading Trudi Canavan’s Magician’s Guild series at the moment. Have you read it? It’s a simple, easy to read story (her first books I believe – published in 2001, and inspired by a dream) about a young girl from the slums who accidentally learns she has magical skill and how that develops in the very political world of the Guild of Magicians when previously all other novices were from the higher classes only. (As well as having to handle a bullying colleague and a scary adversary, who if my vague memory recalls correctly – isn’t actually as bad as first made out.)

But I’m hooked.

And I’ve read it before. But just devoured the first and second books and am a good way into the third already. The main characters are likeable and interesting. It’s surprising that her second trilogy (The Age of Five – set in a different world) wasn’t as strong a story).  I really must borrow the other Guild Magician books soon.
