Sonea, a Black Magician of Kyralia, is horrified when her son, Lorkin, volunteers to assist the new Guild Ambassador to Sachaka. When word comes that Lorkin has gone missing, Sonea is desperate to find him, but if she leaves the city she will be exiled forever. And besides, an old friend is in need of her help.

Most of her friend's family has been murdered - the latest in a long line of assassinations to plague the leading Thieves of the city. There has always been rivalry, but now the Thieves are waging a deadly underworld war, and it appears they have been doing so with magical assistance.

With over one million copies in print, Trudi Canavan has taken the fantasy world by storm. If you haven't done so already, THE AMBASSADOR'S MISSION is the perfect opportunity to discover the magic of Trudi Canavan.

Fantasy Book Review

Whether just because the World Cup has been pulling a lot of my attention or something else, I was unable to really get into the book until that second third popped up, but when it did the book disappeared quickly and I really wanted to get back to reading it every time I was away from it.

Where traditional magicians draw power only from themselves, black magicians can steal the magic from others to use for themselves.
