Overview

Never turn your back on a dragon!

Sneaking out of prison isn't easy, unless you are a thief, or a wizard. Luckily, Conn is both! Trouble is, once he's out, where does he go? His home is a pile of rubble since he blew it up doing magic. His master, the wizard Nevery, is not happy with him. Worst of all, Conn's been exiled, and staying in the city will mean his death.

But Wellmet is in danger from an evil predator coming to destroy the city, and Conn must set off on a quest to fight it. Suddenly, a huge shadow looms over him and he is swept away by something more awesome than his wildest imaginings. Is Conn brave enough to answer magic's call, or is he really just a thief at heart?

Sarah Prineas's incredible world explodes with adventure—a place where cities run on living magic and heroes come from the most surprising places.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Waldrop
Conn, the hero of the first two books in the series "The Magic Thief" is back for another adventure. His first order of business is to replace his locus magicalicus that was lost at the end of the previous book. His urgent need to acquire a new magic stone is enhanced by the increasing danger he feels coming toward his city, Wellmet. Nevery, the wizard turned Conn's mentor, and Rowan, the daughter of the duchess, return to help Conn battle this new threat and add depth and humor to the story. Conn's narrative is engaging enough to keep a reader hooked throughout the entire book, but the illustrations and the excerpts of journals and letters are a welcome addition. It is intimidating to begin a series on book 3, but the back story of the first two books is explained enough when necessary that the reader does not feel lost. Reviewer: Jennifer Waldrop
Kirkus Reviews
The wild magical menace barely fended off in Magic Thief: Lost (2009) is headed for the town of Wellmet, and only the guttersnipe-turned-wizard's apprentice Connwaer and his gruff master, Nevery Flinglas, realize the danger. Having sacrificed his "locus magicalicus," Conn's first priority is finding a replacement-meaning concocting a finding spell that (as usual) results in spectacularly destructive pyrotechnics and the sudden necessity of a long and dangerous journey. Narrator Conn continues to be one of the most deliciously infuriating protagonists ever, so focused on saving his beloved city that he ignores such hazards as the sentence of exile its annoyed leaders impose on him and more distracted than upset when a supposedly extinct dragon snatches him away. Once again Prineas dishes up a nimble plot laced with explosions and large-scale magic-working, enhanced by Caparo's spot-art portraits, punctuated with brief letters or journal entries and capped with a section of capsule bios and recipes. The author brings the story to a strong close, too-but, good news, she has admitted in an interview to considering further sequels. (Fantasy. 11-13)

Meet the Author

Sarah Prineas

Sarah Prineas lives in the midst of the corn in rural Iowa and can usually be found writing fantasy novels on a stealthy silver MacBook Air called Dash. Prineas's Magic Thief series introduced readers to the irascible wizard Nevery and his gutterboy apprentice, Connwaer. Sarah holds a PhD in English literature and recently taught honors seminars on fantasy and science fiction literature at the University of Iowa. She has an amazing dragon action-figure collection and occasionally bakes biscuits (although she says hers never seem to turn out as tasty as Benet's do in The Magic Thief). She is also the author of Winterling, Summerkin, and Moonkind.

Sarah is married to John Prineas, a physics professor, which comes in handy when she's writing about magic. They are the parents of Maud and Theo.

    wonderfully satisfying conclusion to the trilogy

    One of the best stories I've read in years. Starting with The Magic Thief, continuing in The Magic Thief: Lost, I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a long time. My children fought over who got to read it next.

    It didn't get into specifics about the dragons' personalities or abilities.

    That dissapointed me, but overall the storyline was good.
