The High Lord by Trudi Canavan
This is the third book in the trilogy, and the review may contain some spoilers if you haven't read book one and two. You should check out my review of The Magicians' Guild (book one) and my review of The Novice (book two).
As Sonea gets to know the High Lord better, she learns that the evil he is dabbling with may be related to an ancient enemy just waiting its chance to take over. Can Sonea navigate these treacherous plans and survive?
If nothing else, Trudi is completely willing to do evil things to her characters. Did I mention the tension these books have. Yikes! Every time I hope it breaks, I just get wound up even tighter.
We get to spend more time with Cery in this one, which was kind of fun although I wish we had seen more of him in the last book since it feels like we didn't get to see his character development. He's kind of badass now, and I really like the trap things that he sets up (yes, I know you have no idea what I'm talking about). Trust me they're pretty cool.
I do wish it had ended on a different note because as I've mentioned before, I like my satisfying happy endings, but it is in the style of writing throughout this trilogy so I won't say that it wasn't fitting.
