The Rogue, by Trudi Canavan

The Rogue, by Trudi Canavan

The second book in a trilogy is often weak, but The Rogue is a fairly solid follow-up to The Ambassador's Mission. There are four loosely connected plots which don't intersect until the very end, and all four are fairly strong: a search for a rogue magician, two students caught up in a murder, an ambassadorial trip to a far-flung country, and a man coping in a hostile city unable to leave. The murder is resolved, but the other threads have the intensity ramped up for the final volume, The Traitor Queen. Looking forward to it!

Blah blah blah

First Sentence:
According to a Sachakan tradition so old that nobody remembered where it had begun, summer had a male aspect and winter a female one.
