Time for another Friday Favourites! I really have to do these more, I enjoy them so much!
For this edition I've chosen one of my all time favourite series. I try not to mention it too much on the blog, because if I start I'll never stop. Saying that, I've probably already mentioned a few too many times!
The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan includes The Magicians' Guild, The Novice and The High Lord. To be completely honest each book is better than the last. I remember when I first read this book I was probably around 13. It was my first foray into fantasy, excluding Harry Potter of course. I loved it!
One of the things I remember most about getting them is how I got them. I got the first one on a normal trip out shopping with my mam. I finished it within the day! The next day I begged and pleaded with my Grandad the next morning to drive me back to the bookshop so I could get the next book in the series! I devoured the last two books within the next few days. I distinctly remember beginning to re-read my favourite parts of the series immediately after I finished it, it was that good!
To this day I still re-read this series a couple of times a year, and for me there can be no higher recommendation than that!
Definitely recommended for fans of The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Both trilogies have very similar storylines. An ordinary girl, lifted up from poverty due to the unexpected release of her powers, leaving behind a boy who cares for her and entering a world of magic! To entice you even more there's even a magician in black robes to keep an eye out for, very similar to the Darkling ;)
If I haven't convinced you to read this series by no then I never will! However if you do decide to read it, I'd love to hear what you think! If you've already read it, let me know what you thought down in the comments!
