The Ambassador's Mission

Book 1, The Traitor Spy Trilogy

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Sonea, a Black Magician of Kyralia, is horrified when her son, Lorkin, volunteers to assist the new Guild Ambassador to Sachaka. When word comes that Lorkin has gone missing, Sonea is desperate to find him, but if she leaves the city she will be exiled forever. And besides, an old friend is in need of her help.

Most of her friend's family has been murdered - the latest in a long line of assassinations to plague the leading Thieves of the city. There has always been rivalry, but now the Thieves are waging a deadly underworld war, and it appears they have been doing so with magical assistance.

With over one million copies in print, Trudi Canavan has taken the fantasy world by storm. If you haven't done so already, THE AMBASSADOR'S MISSION is the perfect opportunity to discover the magic of Trudi Canavan.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 05, 2010 – The first book in Australian writer Canavan's "Traitor Spy Trilogy" picks up some time after the Black Magician series, yet remains adventurous and accessible for new and old readers alike. Lorkin, the son of Sonea, Canavan's past protagonist, takes the lead in this series when he is drafted by Dannyl to join the new ambassador in tracking down books on the history of the land. Meanwhile, Cery, a thief, returns home to find his family massacred, possibly by the same mysterious figure currently killing his fellow thieves. Worse, all signs point to the murderer also being a rogue magician. Sonea too is concerned with the safety of her family, and for good reason, as Lorkin finds himself getting into trouble abroad, when an attempt on his life leads to his involvement with a group of rebels called Traitors. Canavan balances the plotlines on both fronts nicely, deftly mixing the internal politics of the magicians and the ambassadors with the street-level drama facing her grieving thief.

Customer Reviews

Awesome Read

Canavan continues her series with new characters in the time period of her first trilogy, but with the additional development of her world provided in the prequel Magician's apprentice. As always, her character development pulls the reader into the story lines and leaves you waiting to hear from them as if from old friends. This book is an amazing read. The only shortcoming will be the wait for her next installment in the series as this chronicle leaves many of her story lines hanging and the reader wanting more!

Great Addition!

Great continuation of the characters for Trudi's Original trilogy! Can't wait to read the next book!

Amazing book!!!

Sadly whole parts are missing, chapters cut off mid sentence and other chapter's are only one paragraph long. Needs to be fixed and a completed copy of the book should be provided to me, I payed $12 for half a book :(
