The most dangerous boy in the world?
Timothy is a freak, a weakling, an impossibility. He's the only person in existence without magical powers and has spent his entire life hidden on a remote island. When Timothy is finally taken back to the city of this birth, he is fascinated by the current of magic that fuels the world, and mesmerized by the buildings and orbs that hang weightlessly in the sky. But he is also marked for death.
Assassins are watching his every move, and the government wants him destroyed. Timothy can't imagine what threat he could possible pose; after all, he wields no power in this world.
Or does he?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The overall of this book was really good. I liked the explanation of all the characters the author gave. I would recommend this book to fiction lovers. Some of the characters really tie into the book, like Ivar, the creature that teaches Timothy how to fight hand-to-hand. Timothy throughout the story learns that he has powers but not of the same kind. I would recommend buying the whole series.
When my teacher told the title of the book. I thought it was boring. Now I love the series.I have read all the books at least five times.Iwould recommend this book to anyone.
This book is totaly exciting, awesome, and great! I went and read all of the series thats out and can't wait for the fourth! This hole series is totaly awesome and out standing I recomed it to anyone who enjoys action, mystery, and (!ESPECIALLY!) fantasy!
As a children's bookseller, I read a lot to find good children's books to recommend, especially for boys. This book is full of the stuff kids look for: adventure, suspense, courage, bravery. Timothy is fantasy's Leonardo da Vinci. He makes a great hero...resourceful, likeable, not perfect, but striving to do right and to protect his friends. The authors do a great job of making him an interesting, believable hero. Outcast will be on my list to recommend.
