2014 book 110

Trudi Canavan's Thief's Magic
The first in a new fantasy series, this book centers on a young man, a student of sorcery and history, who discovers a magic book in a tomb--a book that used to be a woman, until she met a certain famous sorcerer a thousand years earlier. At first I was worried that the only woman in this story would be a book, but it turns out there's another POV character, a young women in a strict community, who has a magic-related secret. (Plus, the guy eventually encounters a pair of interesting women who stick around for a while.) I loved both these characters and really sped through this one--I can't wait to see where this story goes next, and might investigate some of Canavan's other books. A/A-. This book is $2.99 right now, get on it!
