industrial revolution is powered by magic Tyen a student of archaeology unearths a sentient book called Vella Once a young sorcerer bookbinder Vella was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerer. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum was very excited when I first heard about Trudi Canavan’s Thief’s Magic and doubly so when I discovered it was going to be an introduction to a brand new universe we’ve never seen before I’m not completely unfamiliar with the author’s work having read The Magician’s Guild book one of her Black Magician trilogy but knowing that she has two series and a couple novellas based in that world of Kyralia which I haven’t even yet come close to finishing I was glad to have a fresh start in Millennium’s Rule Magic and magic users seem to feature strongly in Canavan’s books and that’s no exception here At the beginning of this novel we meet Tyen a young archaeology student though calling what he and his professor and fellow students do “Archaelogy” might be a bit of stretchthey’re like tomb robbers who discovers a sentient book while excavating an ancient tomb The book can read the minds of anyone who makes physical contact communicating through text appearing on the pages Calling herself Vella the book claims to have once been a sorcerer woman until she was transformed into her current form by one of the greatest sorcerers of history She has been gathering and storing information through the ages ever since Sensing bad things to come if Vella were to ever fall into the wrong hands Tyen decides to keep her to himself for now but as we all know a secret this big is always bound to come out sooner or later Meanwhile in another world a dyer’s daughter named Rielle harbors a secret of her own From a young age she has had the ability to sense magic – and hence the potential to use it However Rielle’s society could not be any different from Tyen’s where magic is used freely and some might say TOO freely to power their fantastical machines Instead the priests of Rielle’s world teach that to use magic is the euivalent to stealing from the Angels themselves Anyone caught committing this crime is published severely then cast out from the city to live out the rest of their lives in a prison Rielle is therefore all too happy to just keep her head down hoping to also to do what her family wants of her and find a prospective husband But then she meets and falls in love with a local artist named Izare which is patently NOT what her parents had in mind Oh hello Forbidden Love What do these two plot lines have to do with each other Very little actually Reading Thief’s Magic felt essentially like reading two books in one The novel’s structure can be a little jarring if you’re not expecting it We first start with Part I which follows Tyen’s story and several chapters after that Part II begins with Rielle’s The novel continues like this alternating back and forth between their narratives Actually getting the hang of this perspective jumping isn’t all that difficult but Canavan likes to tease and she seems to have this knack for choosing the most suspenseful moments to make the switch between characters Often I would find myself pulled away into Rielle’s story just as I was getting completely drawn into Tyen’s or vice versa This format was both simultaneously addicting and frustrating though I have to admit I kind of liked it When it comes down to it I’m just completely hooked by these two characters and their respective worlds Both Tyen and Rielle are written very well even though occasionally their naiveté would grate on my nerves However their decisions – misguided as they are sometimes – always led to interesting things happening I’m fascinated by the differences in their cultures and how each of them view magic I love that their own personal conflicts take them on completely disparate adventures so that the individual challenges they face differ profoundly as well I’m especially intrigued by Rielle and her struggles in a society where unauthorized use of magic is treated as the greatest sin where women like her have very little choice and practically no future when they are discovered to possess magical abilities I don’t know if Tyen and Rielle’s paths will ever cross though something tells me that they will – but that particularly story is not for this book to tell At this point I feel I’ve been given enough information to formulate a tenuous theory on how the two characters’ worlds are linked but for the most part we don’t get too many answers on that front I really enjoyed following both story lines but if you’re the kind of reader who prefers self contained story arcs or at least some closure at the end of a novel you won’t really find it here It’s a factor to think about though I already know I will be picking up the next book in spite of it Thief’s Magic may have all the hallmarks of a “Book One” but Canavan has crafted a very fine beginning technically TWO very fine beginnings and I want to find out what happens to both Tyen and Rielle

For it and that there is a corrupter in the city willing to teach her how to use it should she dare to risk the Angels' wrathBut not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe Not the nature of magic nor the laws of their lands Not even the people they trust. My first Trudi Canavan I bought this out of curiosity several years ago started and dropped it several times then was just about to remove it from my kindle and gave it one last chance I loved it I found both T yen and Rielle's story eually engrossing too Richly imagined worlds strong characters and good plotting I call that a win

Thief's MagicS of history Since then she has been collecting information including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen's world facesElsewhere in a land ruled by the priests Rielle the dyer's daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels Yet she knows she has a talent. I've been looking forward to this new series from Trudi Canavan because I really enjoyed her excellent Black Magician trilogy However I was somewhat disappointed that it is a fairly long book 560 pages where not too much happensThe book is comprised of two stories that of Tyen a young magic and archaeology student and Rielle daughter of a wealthy family who own a large dyeworks They live in different countries but have the common problem that the world supply of magic is running out In Tyen's country magic is used as the energy to power machines and advancing technology is rapidly depleting supplies In Rielle's country magic is conserved by only allowing priests to use it Ordinary people caught using magic are labelled tainted put in chains s and taken away to a secret location by the priests I had expected that these two story threads would link up at some stage but that did not happen in this volumeThe book started well with a 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' type scene where Tyen his classmates and tutor looking for treasures in newly discovered tombs have to flee when chased by angry locals However this turns out to just be a device for Tyen to discover and then learn to use a very special magic book This ultimately leads to him running away from the Academy where he is a student and the rest of the book is about his fairly boring journey to get to a country where he can be free to learn and practice magic Rielle's story is also fairly drawn out She has fallen in love with an artist a lower class of man than her family will allow her to marry She knows her ability to detect when magic has been used must be kept a secret but she ultimately lets down her guard when she is with him and is captured by the priests and taken awayWhether these two will meet up in the future we don't know but my guess is that this first instalment in the series is setting the scene for what is to come and hopefully the next volume will be better paced and engrossing Despite it being a long book and centred on these two characters I didn't feel there was a lot of character development so that they are still very flat and I don't feel any emotional investment in them at this stage Hopefully that will also improve as the series developsThe final section of the book did finally provide a bit action and interest propelling Tyen and Rielle into new places with the promise of adventures in the next book
