Présentation de l'éditeur

International No.1 bestselling author Trudi Canavan returns with her most powerful and thrilling adventure yet.

In a world where an 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 sorcerers of history. Since then she has been collecting information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen's world faces.

Elsewhere, 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 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' wrath.

But 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Très bon livre 10 juillet 2014
Par deriv1997
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Cette nouvelle aventure est aussi passionnante que les précédentes écrites par Trudi Canavan .
Je vous le recommande donc car il est très entraînant et contient plein de rebondissements .
Dans un monde où la magie et les codes sociaux sont contrôlés , on suit deux personnages Tyen un jeune magicien et Rielle une jeune femme qui possède un pouvoir inexploitée . On voit peu à peu l'intrigue se dessiner et les personnages qui sont destinés à se rencontrer dans le futur

Impossible de lâcher le livre. L'auteur semble avoir résolu, dans ce nouveau roman, le problème des passages qui traînent en longueur. De plus, l'ambiance change par rapport aux autres romans mais ce nouveau monde est très bien géré.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Get this book! 15 mai 2014
Par Marta Cox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I think when it comes to fantasy that the name Trudi Canavan is one that most people would recognise. She has consistently brought life to worlds and characters that leap off the page and capture readers imagination. This the first book in her new Milleniums Rule series looks set to please both old and new readers alike. This series delivers all the fantasy aspects that we have come to expect from her with the added touch of magic, romance and even angels! Step into the world ( or worlds!) of Ms Canavans imagination and be transported far away from the boring humdrum existence we live in and into her unique story.
The tale begins with Tyen who is a young man studying to be both an archaeologist and a sorcerer. He lives in a world where magic exists and is used to power machinery but unfortunately magic is running out! He finds a sentient book that has been made from a young woman called Vella. Vella has secrets though and protecting her puts Tyen in danger and he starts a journey that will take him far away from everything and everyone he knows.
This book is a story within a story though as simultaneously we learn of a young woman called Rielle who lives in a land controlled by priests who work for Angels. Using magic is the prerogative of the Angels but there are those who would risk their lives and steal magic. Rielle is one of the few who can see the stain that using magic leaves and that means it's possible that she too could learn to wield it but doing so would mean she would be cast out and punished. Events take a turn that Rielle hadn't expected and soon her life is thrown into chaos .
Wow! Two stories about very different people and each one feels completely different. Tyens tale is the least emotional as he's quite a pragmatic guy but he is about to learn more about just what is real and what he himself is capable of. His world is rife with corruption and greed but he is fast learning that his own existence could play a huge part in saving those he cares about. As for Vella, now that's possibly the most upsetting part of all this. Murdered by a powerful sorcerer and yet not truly dead but transformed into a living book, creepy and very disturbing.
Rielles part of this adventure is the most emotional and passionate though as through her we experience romance and first love. Unfortunately nothing runs smooth and the events that transpire lead her truly into abject misery and yet she's such a strong personality that she seems set to survive just about anything. It's an emotionally draining storyline that the author takes us on with Rielle and quite difficult to read at times.
Both these stories are left as cliffhangers and I'm sure readers will be clamouring for the next instalment . Such diverse and interesting characters populate this book. My heart broke for Rielle but Vellas story tugs at me too. Interesting supporting characters and I hope we meet the sassy Sezee again but did I mention Angels? Oh yes there are Angels briefly in this book and Im very sure that we will be learning a lot more about them.
Such a well crafted story. Absolutely fascinating world building going on and at some point you just know that they are going to collide and I for one can't wait! It took a while to really grab me but when it did boy was I hooked! I need the next book in this series and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to read this. Get this book!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing, but with potential 10 juillet 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Even for the first book in a series, this book is unsatisfying and incomplete -- you can't really say the ending is a cliffhanger, so much as that the story doesn't truly *start* until the very end of the book.

The writing is decent, thought not stellar, and the plot keeps your interest (at least the Tyen subplot - the Rielle plot only gets interesting near the end.) It's clear the author is aiming for a much bigger, more interesting story arc, and I'm interested to see where she goes with it.

Personally, I would like to read the rest of the series, but I would have preferred NOT picking up this book until a sequel (or two) were already in print, because of the abrupt and annoying ending of book one.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A fragmented and unsatisfying story 13 juillet 2014
Par Neil J. Mehta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book tells the story of two young people who live in very different magical worlds. Tyen is a student of magical archaeology; he studies at a University that funds explorations by discovering (or, depending on your perspective, robbing) magical sites around the world. He discovers a magical book that contains the consciousness of a woman who lived more than 1000 years ago, and his story is primarily about his attempts to keep her safe while fleeing from forces that might misuse her or simply lock her away.

Rielle, meanwhile, is a young and relatively privileged woman living in a constrained religious society. Her tale is one of forbidden love, dealing with restricting social mores and mysterious religious taboos.

While the world-building in this novel is careful, I have to admit that I found the book dull and disconnected. The two main stories barely interact, even by the end of this 560-page book, and it is unclear whether the two central characters even inhabit the same world at any point in the story. Further, the stories held little interest for me. Tyen's story begins with the incredibly interesting idea of the conscious book, but afterwards devolves into hundreds of pages of the same basic idea: he is being pursued by certain individuals, he barely escapes them and arrives at a new area of the world, and they quickly pick up his scent again. Rinse and repeat, and you have almost his entire half of the book. Meanwhile, Rielle's story is a little more interesting and varied, but it does not intersect with Tyen's in terms of either theme or plot, and her story is slow to pick up momentum. To be fair, however, the climax of her story at the end of the book is extremely intriguing and original.

Finally, the ending is completely unsatisfying. Absolutely nothing is resolved, and the book does not even end on a note of finality. It feels as though both stories stop at completely arbitrary points, mid-narrative.

So I have to say that I was very disappointed with this book. I read it over an international flight and deliberately left it on board because I have no interest in ever reading it again.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Up to Her Usual Standards 30 mai 2014
Par Roger McCray - Publié sur Amazon.com

***This review contains spoilers***

I’m not sure what is going on with Trudi Canavan, she has written some really good series in the past, I really enjoyed the Age of Five series and the Black Magician series, but her newer series, this one and the Traitor Spy series, are not very good. The latest of her writing is this book and to me it is her worst book so far (The Magician’s Apprentice is not too far behind this one). I had really high expectations for this book, I assumed her last trilogy wasn’t that good because she was writing in the same world as the Black Magician trilogy and it was a minor story that got fleshed out more than it should have. I hoped with this series being in a new world, and with the really cool cover art, that this book would go back to the quality of writing she had in her older series, but I was quite disappointed. I purchased this book in hardcover because I thought it was going to be good, but I know I won’t be doing that for the rest of the series (if I both reading it)

This book is written in two POVs, Tyen is a male student in a school for teaching magic while Rielle is a female in a male dominated society where only a select few are allowed to use magic. I found that even with the flaws in the Tyen’s story it was the much better story and I was always disappointed when the story switched over to Rielle. The writing in Rielle’s story was better writing to me but I found her entire story to be such a waste of time.

In Tyen’s storyline the school that he is going to does not seem like much of a school, the story never shows any of the teaching that goes on, it only shows the students and one professor on an expedition where they are robbing graves to increase the wealth of the school. With the students basically being slave labor and not receiving anything for the work that the do during the expedition. It was during one of these expeditions that Tyen finds a magic book, that used to be a person, and the conflict of his story is created. He wants to keep the book and learn from it where the school wants to destroy it because of its abilities. I enjoyed the interactions that Tyen had with the book and really wished they would have fleshed that out more, including deeper explanations on the magic in the world. The major problem I had with this story was in the author’s writing, she has some major problems with subtlety and foreshadowing. Either things are so insanely obvious that there is no point of even reading or the complete opposite, the events that occur don’t make any sense with how the story or character is being portrayed or with very little detail in the story telling that I’m not even sure what is happening. There were a few places I had to re-read several times to even understand what had just happened.

I found the Rielle POV to be the better written of the two stories but I found the actual story to be such a huge waste of time. To me it seems like the entire story is written to introduce us to the Angel, who we only see for a few pages and then he is gone. The entire storyline seems to be written to force Rielle to be punished (again some not very subtle foreshadowing makes this obvious from the beginning) and to drive her to meeting the angel. This would be okay if they provided some good explanations/history on how the society became the way it was, but that is lacking in this story and it makes me not care about anyone in this story line. As we see early on Rielle has the ability to do magic but her society forces her to be unable to use it in an acceptable way which drives her to an inevitable confrontation with the priesthood. Along the way she falls in love and runs away with someone her family does not approve of and this drives her, in her mind, her to have no other choice but to use her magic. The church catches her and sends her off to be punished where we finally meet the Angel, whom I assume is going to be a much bigger part of the series now. I’m not sure what plans the author has for Rielle but I feel like she could drop out of the story completely and I would not care in the slightest nor would it seem to affect the overall story.

The other thing I found pretty disappointing in this book was the magic, for a book that calls out the magic in its title I expected there to be more explanation of magic and its uses. Also Trudi Canavan’s other books had very elaborate magic systems with a lot of explanations on how they worked. This was completely lacking in this book, from what I understand of the magic in this book is that you can speed up or slow down the particles of the world (to warm them up and create fire or make it really cold) and that the magic is an intrinsic part of the world with the power of the user coming from how far away they can pull the magic from (the farther you can Reach the more power you can gather and the more powerful you are). There are offhanded remarks about being able to heal which isn’t really explained and there is an in depth explanation on how you can world hop but I found that to be quite confusing on how it actually made you change planets and how you used it to go to specific planets.

All in all I thought this book could have been half as long, with Rielle’s story being completely cut out, and been a much better story. At this point I don’t know if I will continue with the series (I probably will because of my history with the author), but I know I won’t be purchasing any more of her books.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 2 characters - 2 levels of interest 22 juin 2014
Par Robert Gardner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The second character's story (Rielle) was a bit like reading a romance novel for young teenage girls until about half way through the book when it rejoined the expected genre ( i.e. sci-fi/fantasy ). The first character Tyen's story was better from the start of the book and maintained my interest until the stories both picked up later in the book. By the end of the book the stories were both just getting much more interesting when the book ended abruptly! Not as good as the Black Magician series - yet.
