I was so engrossed in finishing the magicians' guild last night I slept so late and thus skipped the 9am mass this morning. anyway, the novel is the first book of the black magician trilogy by trudi canavan. a captivating tale about a slum girl who possesses hidden magical power. she discovered her power accidentally, which led to her being captured by the magicians. being a slum girl she has been taught not to trust magicians her whole life. however, after a rescue attempt, a blackmail attempt, couple of lessons and demonstration.. she decided to join the magicians' guild. I'm in the second book now, the novice which resembles harry potter. magic classes, and of course, a class bully.
