Overview

TIMOTHY...A VILLAIN?
After learning how his powerlessness can be used as a weapon in the world of magic and defeating Nicodemus's plan to overthrow the government, Timothy travels to a war-torn dimension to help the Wurm, fierce magicians and warriors descended from an ancient dragon race. But while covertly gathering information on the age-old feud between the bloodthirsty Wurm and the Parliament of Mages, Timothy discovers a very different story -- one of peaceful Wurms and a conspiracy led by the Parliament of Mages.
But that's not the only problem on Timothy's hands. The mysterious girl he spotted in SkyHaven is the granddaughter of Nicodemus, and she's challenging Leander's right to be Grandmaster of the Order of Alhazred. And despite Nicodemus's death, mages are still disappearing...and this time someone is painting Timothy as the villain.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Book two in the "Outcast" series, this epic fantasy continues the story of Timothy Cade, an un-magical boy born into a world dependant on magic. As an un-magician, Timothy has the power to disrupt any spells around him, making him extremely dangerous to the world of mages. Although fear and prejudice lead the council of mages to see Timothy and his Wurm-friend Verlis as enemies, Timothy is only concerned with fulfilling his promise to help Verlis restore peace to his world. In an alternate dimension, the Wurm-clans are engaged in a horrific war. Meanwhile, a destructive Grandmaster has left the mages reeling, leading to the appointment of Constable Grimshaw. Grimshaw is a treacherous and narrow-minded deputy, who is determined to prevent Timothy from helping the Wurms. As the story progresses, the long-term effects of prejudice and social inequality become ever-more important as Timothy must challenge the long-held beliefs of the council. In addition, Timothy is an amazing inventor, who is skilled at adapting non-magical ways of doing things. His inventions add an elegant and unusually imaginative element to this somewhat pedestrian fantasy. Regardless, the novel is a gripping read, fast-paced and suspenseful. 2004, Aladdin Paperbacks/Simon and Schuster, Ages 10 to Adult.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-This sequel to The Un-Magician (S & S, 2004) continues the adventures of Timothy Cade, the only person in Arcanum who does not possess magical capabilities. Not only is Timothy considered a freak, but he is also a threat to the mages because he can actually negate magic. After Verlis, a dragonlike creature of the Wurm clan from another dimension, is imprisoned by Constable Grimshaw because the mages believe the Wurm is a threat to the safety of their city, Timothy vows to rescue his friend. Dungeons and Dragons fans are the most likely audiences for this ornate, suspense-filled installment in the series. Reluctant readers will probably stumble over the copious adjectives, and the themes of xenophobia and "preventive war" are unmistakable and ever present. Purchase if the first book is in high demand.-Farida S. Dowler, Mercer Island Library, WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
