Stealing Sorcery: The War of Broken Mirrors, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The immortal sorcerers - three legendary figures that toppled the empire of Xixis. Each has lived for over a hundred years, leaving a powerful legacy in their wake.
But their children do not share their renowned immortality, and when the firstborn son of Edrick Theas is killed, sorceress Lydia Hastings is called to investigate the murder. When she discovers a sorcerous trail left by a creature of unfathomable power, she quickly realizes she needs outside help. And while Jonan Kestrian - a spy for a rival military power - might not be Lydia's first choice for an ally, she knows that he has the knowledge and skills that she needs.
While Lydia and Jonan trace the assassin's trail, Taelien undergoes the Trials of Unyielding Steel, a series of tests to ensure his entry into the Paladins of Tae'os. As he trains for his trials, Taelien faces his fiercest rival yet: Velas Jaldin, a former member of Orlyn's Queensguard with the power to manipulate motion at her whim. With skills far beyond those of an ordinary soldier, the former Queensguard might be the killer that Lydia seeks - or the assassin's next victim.

Also, spies and traitors, spies and traitors everywhere.
This was great, I'm really looking forward to the next one.
The fact that T's shields kept failing almost every test, made the ending predicable... I didn't get anything out of the final fight. If the fight was written like T's fight in the coliseum without the predictable loss to 1 opponent instead of 5, it would have had more impact to me. I'm still waiting for the 3rd audiobook installment however. There must have been a reason he was trained again.

The book focuses quite heavily on thought patterns and idea's that the characters is running through their minds, which I personally feel looses it's edge after some time, but it kept the story flowing well and made a nice match with the detective style story.
I enjoyed the development of Taelien's progress with his sword and I hope to find out just what's going on with that! I felt the other two main characters Jonan and Lydia were portrayed slightly different to the first, but thus made them more vulnerable and more believable as a character.
On a personal note, A particular part of this book did bring some raw emotion, which I haven't felt (and rarely get when reading) since read my very first trilogy of books almost ten years ago. Either way, I was almost unable to put this down (becoming late for work on a couple of occasions) and was a brilliant read.
I would highly suggest this book to anyone with a liking of detective / mythical / sorcery style writing and I can't wait for the next in the set.
Story itself is interesting, hence three stars.
