My, Oh my…I finally found a writer who clearly knows my idea of writing--not specific enough to bore you to death, but still delivers the idea to your imagination efficiently.
I, for one, am an avid fan of fantasy novels. And I never expected to find a novel--a trilogy--two trilogies, that could possibly catch my full attention! Two trilogies, written by one person! How awesome could that get?!
Let me introduce to you, my new favorite writer. (I’m sorry to disappoint the twilight series fans, but no, it’s not Stephenie Meyer…_
Trudi Canavan (born 23 October 1969) is an Australian writer of fantasy novels, best known for her bestselling fantasy trilogies The Black Magician trilogy and Age of the Five. (Wikipedia).
To understand what I’m talking about, let me give you some links to one of her trilogies. Hope you’ll enjoy reading them.
THE MAGICIANS' GUILD

Sonea discovers during the city's annual Purge, in which slum-dwellers are forced out of the outer-circle of the city and back into the slums, that she has magical ability. With the help of her friend Cery she attempts to evade capture by the Magicians' Guild whom she believes wishes to harm her.
Book II of The Black Magician Trilogy
Sonea begins studies at the Guild University as a Novice but her influential classmate, Regin, sways the opinion of the other first-year Novices against her. He attempts to convince everyone, include the teachers, that she is little more than a thief and far below them in status.
