Summary: "Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic.

Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination for ever, but the rogue's influence over the city's underworld is far greater than she feared. His only weakness is the loss of his mother, now locked away in the Lookout. In Sachaka, Dannyl has lost the respect of the Sachakan elite for letting Lorkin join the Traitors. The Ashaki's attention has shifted, instead, to the new Elyne Ambassador, a man Dannyl knows all too well. And in the University, two female novices are about to remind the Guild that sometimes their greatest enemy is found within." --Publisher description.

Publishers Weekly Review

In the solid sequel to 2010's The Ambassador's Mission, healer Lorkin leaves Kyralia to live among the Traitors. Being both male and a foreigner, he must cope with his lowered status in Sanctuary, the Traitor's homebase. Meanwhile, Dannyl, Kyralia's ambassador to Sachaka, investigates ancient Ashaki texts that might shed light on the recent use of highly controlled black magic. In the mystical Magician's Guild, beautiful novice Naki draws awkward teen Lilia into a world of sex, illicit drugs, and black magic. Meanwhile, Lorkin's mother, Sonea (protagonist of Canavan's Black Magician books), and the thief Cery deal with the threat of the titular rogue who threatens Cery's life and livelihood. As the midpoint in the trilogy, it's still hard to see how all of these stories will connect, but Canavan nicely moves the plot along as her characters grow and change. Canavan does a solid job of providing textual exposition for returning readers who might need refreshers on this ever-expanding world, but newcomers would be best off starting with the previous book.
