The Novice (The Black Magician Trilogy #2)

"Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will
soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control
them." Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only
Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful
allies - including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But
Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the
mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading
. .. until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's
support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his
mysteries - and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into
the darkness. Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord
Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is
setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated
peril - as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . .. and
terrible.
