The Ambassador's Mission is the first book in The Traitor Spy Trilogy. The third instalment, The Traitor Queen is out next week (14 August for us lucky Australians).

The Ambassador's Mission was one of those blessed surprises that you get sometimes as a reviewer. Not that this was a review copy. I was offered an interview with Trudi Canavan (out shortly) and to my shame she’s been one of those fantasy authors that has been forever on my TBR pile.

The beautiful and engaging covers have taunted me from afar when ever I have had the joy of walking into a bricks and mortar store.

So with a week to prepare myself for interview I decided to wrangle up some Trudi Canavan books from the library.

Now getting back to blessed surprises.

4,5 Sterne.

Wieder ein richtig gutes Buch von Trudi Canavan. Ich mag die Welt rund um Sonea und die Gilde und hab mich schon tierisch gefreut, als das Buch herausgekommen ist.

Diesmal handelt es von dem Sohn von Sonea, Lorkin. Aber auch Sonea hat eine Rolle und die ganzen anderen alten Bekannten (zB Cery, Dannyl).
Es ist wieder mitreißend und spannend, es dauerte nicht lang und man war wieder komplett in der Reihe drin.

Allerdings würde ich für Neueinsteiger enpfehlen, mit dem ersten Buch anzufangen und nicht mit diesem Buch zu starten.
Das erste Buch ist die Vorgeschichte (aber in sich abgeschlossener Roman) "Magie".
Darauf folgt die Trilogie "Die Rebellin", "Die Novizin" und "Die Meisterin".
Die neue Trilogie, die 20 Jahre nach der "Meisterin" spielt, beginnt mit diesem Buch, "Sonea".

Keine volle Punktzahl, weil "Magie" und "Die Meisterin" einfach noch besser waren :)
