Enter the world of Trudi Canavan, and you’ll experience everything that incredible fantasy stories should have: mystery, magic, danger, and adventure. But as any true fantasy fan knows – and with millions in international sales, Canavan has no shortage of fans – it takes more than a formula to make a mega seller.
Trudi Canavan’s intricate and vivid worlds are full of compelling characters that you don’t need a Wikipedia search to appreciate. Her trademark writing style appeals to readers from young to old, and unlike many other fantasy series, Canavan flies the flag for strong, underdog female protagonists.
Canavan’s latest book, The Magician’s Apprentice, takes us back before the events of the Black Magician Trilogy, connecting the stories together to tell us how it all began. The story starts in the remote village of Mandryn, where a young Tessia finds out that along with her newly discovered magical gifts comes great responsibility. Amidst this new realm of excitement and privilege, Tessia learns of the impending, devastating events of war and sorcery that will be felt for centuries.
The Magician’s Apprentice is now out in paperback, so if somehow you’ve missed the hardback, now is your chance. If you’ve already read The Magician’s Apprentice in hardback and are anxiously awaiting the next Trudi Canavan book, you won’t have to wait long because the brand new sequel to the Black Magician Trilogy – The Ambassador’s Mission – will be out in early May.
The Magician’s Apprentice paperback is priced £7.99 and is available from 4 April.
The Ambassador’s Mission hardback is priced at £16.99 and is available on 6 May.
