Thief's Magic

Book 1, Millennium's Rule

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In a world where an industrial revolution is powered by magic, Tyen, a student of archaeology, unearths a sentient book called Vella. Once a young sorcerer-bookbinder, Vella was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerers of history. Since then she has been collecting information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen's world faces.
Elsewhere, in an land ruled by the priests, Rielle the dyer's daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows she has a talent for it, and that there is a corrupter in the city willing to teach her how to use it -- should she dare to risk the Angels' wrath.

But not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe. Not the nature of magic, nor the laws of their lands... and not even the people they trust.


From Publishers Weekly

Mar 10, 2014 – Australian fantasy author Canavan (the Traitor Spy trilogy) introduces a restrictive magical culture to open the Millennium's Rule trilogy. Tyen, scholar and ambitious archaeologist, uncovers an ancient magic tome, a font of potentially dangerous information, forged from the body of an unwilling woman named Vella. Rielle struggles against the strictures of polite society, where inborn magical gifts can too easily lead to arrest and assault, and where women are expected to submit to loveless arranged marriages. Tyen's empathy for Vella, and his desire to protect her from the machinations of others, force him to flee. Rielle's desire for love and a self-directed life similarly sees her cast out from the ranks of the powerful, consigned to a fate few would seek. There is much to recommend in Canavan's new venture; Tyen is a bit dull, but Rielle's story entrances. This trilogy launch does not so much conclude as stop, leaving readers eager for the next two volumes.
