The Rogue: The Traitor Spy Trilogy, Book 2

Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic. But the Traitors are reluctant to trade their knowledge for the Healing they so desperately want, and while he assumes they fear revealing their existence to the world, there are hints they have bigger plans. Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever, but the rouge'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.

Publisher's Summary

Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic. But the Traitors are reluctant to trade their knowledge for the Healing they so desperately want, and while he assumes they fear revealing their existence to the world, there are hints they have bigger plans.

Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever, but the rouge'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.

Also listen to the first book, The Ambassador's Mission.

    "Good addition, but not extra-ordinary"
    Was The Rogue worth the listening time?

    This book is about the same as the last one in the series - it is not terrible, but it isn't extraordinary either. It is a good continuation of the story but you won't find any great action scenes, intrigues or the like. It just continues the story. I wouldn't say it is a bad read - just not an exciting one. It did keep my interest throughout. It is definitely not a waste of a credit, but don't expect A Song of Ice and Fire greatness or The Wheel of Time greatness from it. After reading it, I would listen to the next one in the series.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Truly Trudi Canavan!"

    I've listened or read all the books of the Australian Fantasy writer, Trudi Canavan. The Traitor Spy Trilogy is set in the same world than the Black Magician Trilogy for which she received a lot of acclaim.

    The Rogue is the second book in the Traitor Spy Trilogy after the Ambassador's Mission (also available at Audible). The story that takes place a few years after the Black Magician Trilogy. Sonea, the heroine of the previous series, is back. Yet it seems that Lorkin, her son, plays a more important role in this series.

    You might experience a bit of deja vu. Like the Black Magician Trilogy, there is both hetero- and homo-sexual romance. Canavan's foreshadowing of events is sometimes so blatant that you can see what is coming more than a mile away. It wish she would use a bit more misdirection to ensure that the story doesn't be come too predictable. I knew Lorkin is going to learn black magic at some stage from book one in the series.

    Yet, she was able to introduce the characters in such a way that you would like to hear more of them. I do enjoy this fantasy universe.

    Richard Aspel is a good interpretative reader, yet if you've heard Samantha Bond read the abridged versions of the Black Magician Trilogy, you might also feel that the wrong person is performing these books. Yet he does a fair job and keeps your attention. So maybe I am a little unfair towards him by giving his performance a 3. If I could give 3 and a half, I would have.

    If you like Trudi Canavan's way of writing, and read/listened through the Black Magician Trilogy, the single volume, the Magician's Apprentice and the Ambassador's Mission (the first book of the Traitor Spy Trilogy) you will enjoy this book. However don't fall in here in the universe that Canavan has created. I do worry a little bit about the predictability that is surfacing in Canavan's writing. May the third book put my worry to rest.

    "Better than The Ambassador's Mission"

    While this is better than The Ambassador's Mission, it's still a read for a day that you REALLY don't want to think. The plot is blatantly obvious, with the only twists and turns being "When is this thing that is obviously going to happen, going to happen?" That being said, I will probably get the next book, because I am addicted to the characters, and the ending on this book left me wanting to know who is going to die. :)

    "read the trilogy in order"

    Great Trilogy, I liked all three books. However, you need to read the Black Magician Trilogy first to get alot of the background needed to understand/follow the back story.

    "Trudi canavan at her best"

    I thought that richard aspel was really good, the story is classic canavan in that she knows how to write and sculpt her characters and the worlds that she has created. The rouge is a great follow up to the black magician trilogy

    "mystery and intrigue"

    This book was a lot better I finish it in record time.I can hardly wait for the next book.The Rogue, the second book in Trudi Canavan's Traitor Spy Trilogy, picks up right where The Ambassador's Mission left off.Since anyone thinking about reading The Rogue has surely read the preceding book, I'm not going to delve into the plot much. Suffice to say, all the old cast of characters are back and Canavan introduces one new face, Lilia - a budding magician trying to fit in.The book ends with two cliff hangers and The only bad thing I can say about this book is that now I have to wait eight months for the next one to come out!!!!

    "the narration spoiled an otherwise good book"

    if you like fantasy this author delivers a great story with great imagination. the landscape is somehow familiar yet intriguingly different. there is a pace and excitement to the novel. the narrator is however quite awful lacking any real variation oif tone and making every character sound the same,

    "Great Plot"

    Thought the story was great, very intriguing and looking forward to the next installment. Initially I wasn't a massive fan of the narration but after a few chapters I actually found I enjoyed it, so if you are having doubts hang in there.

    "Great!"

    I have read the entire trilogy, they are great books that keep you interested enough to go on to the next book, instead of giving up after the first one. I disagree with other reviews that said the narrator was bad, I think he was good, you did not constantly think about him but the story and that to me is a mark of a good narrator. The book is gripping and the characters are great. I am of course biased because I have read other trudi canavan books and just love her.

    I really enjoyed listening to this book, I was easily able to understand the characters and the narrator was able to pull me in and keep me entralled.
