Overview

The battle lines are drawn—and only Timothy can cross them—in book three of the otherworldly Magic Zero series from two New York Times bestselling authors.

Despite shunning Timothy since his arrival in Arcanum, the government has now turned to him for help. Raptus, the vicious leader of the dragon race called the Wurm, is determined to break through the magical barrier that separates his world from Sunderland and exact vengeance upon the mages. The Wurms need Timothy’s unique form of non-magic—his ability to invent things—to prepare for the inevitable battle.

Timothy sets out with his mentor, Leander, to the site of the barrier, but over the course of the trip Leander’s behavior evolves from erratic to dangerous—so much so that Cassandra is named Grandmaster of the Order of Alhazred. Can Timothy and Cassandra find the source of the Leander’s transformation before it destroys them all?

This third book in the Magic Zero quartet, originally known as the Outcast series, features a refreshed cover and an unforgettable adventure.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
The world of Sunderland is still new to Timothy. Although he was kept from this world for most of his life, Timothy may be the only person that can save Sunderland. It is protected from the Land of the Dragons by a magical barrier but its safety is being threatened by the leader of the Wurm, Raptus. This despicable leader will stop at nothing to destroy Sunderland. With the help of his closest friend, Leander, Timothy ventures out towards the barrier. Along this journey, Timothy begins to notice Leander is behaving quite strange. Timothy now begins to fear that Leander may no longer be trusted. Will his plan to save the barrier work? Will Timothy now have to protect his world from one of his closest friends? Through the magic of invention and a brave heart, Timothy is determined to keep Sunderland safe and protect the magic of the barrier from the dragons. Reviewer: Lisette Baez
