Blodeuedd Reviews: The Rogue by Trudi Canavan

Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about their unique magic. But the Traitors are reluctant to trade their secrets for the Healing they so desperately want.

Meanwhile, Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever --- but the rogue's influence over the city's underworld, however, is far greater than she feared.

And in the University, two female novices are about to remind the Guild that sometimes their greatest enemy is found within... 

My thoughts:
Yet another character gets dragged into the series. Ok, so nothing wrong with many POVS, just they all gets so few pages. I got used to it, but it would have been better with longer stories.

Right so Sonea was a bit dull in this one. She is still trying to find that rogue. But nothing really happens to her.

Lorkin is with the traitors. They are women who wants an equal society, right so that is why men are below you all? I would leave, he is just too nice.

Then there is the new girl, Lilia, an easy manipulated fool who gets in trouble at the academy. Her I did not like, nor her new friend.

Darryl is doing his ambassador business, I like him cos he is searching for answers.

Then there are characters here and there....

Not a lot happened. Looking for that Rogue, dealing with traitors, silly girls doing silly things. Still I do want to know how it all will end. But it did stagnate a bit.

Haven't read this series, but from your review, it doesn't sound all that fantastic. Again I get the impression that there are too many characters thrown together unnecessarily. Really good review :)
