The Magic Thief: Found. The Magic Thief: Home. THE MAGIC THIEF: LOST by Sarah Prineas I loved the first MAGIC THIEF book for its creative magic, exciting adventures and fascinating characters. The second book in this series continues on where the first left off. Conn, the thief turned wizard's apprentice, is unable to speak to his magic since his "locus magicalicus" jewel was destroyed.

In The Magic Thief: Lost, the second book in Sarah Prineas’s acclaimed middle grade fantasy series, wizard’s apprentice Conn is forced to improvise after he loses his locus magicalicus—with explosive results!

Never mix fire with magic!

Conn may only be a wizard's apprentice, but even he knows it's dangerous to play with fire . . . especially around magic. His master, Nevery, warns him that it could all blow up in his face. Besides, they have bigger problems to deal with. There is evil afoot in the city of Wellmet, an evil that isn't human.

But Conn is drawn to the murmurs he hears every time he sets off an explosion—something is trying to talk to him, to warn him. When none of the wizards listen, Conn takes matters into his own hands. His quest to protect everything he loves brings him face-to-face with a powerful sorcerer-king and a treachery beyond even his vivid imagination.

Diana Wynne Jones, author of Howl's Moving Castle, praised this middle grade fantasy series filled with magic and wonder, saying of the first book: "I couldn't put it down. Wonderful, exciting stuff."

I enjoyed this story, it was filled with a beautiful,vivid, bright and dare I say magical imagination, I was able to hear the characters and see them. I was taken into the story and felt I assisted in saving the magic. I recommend this book for the young and the young at heart especially recommend this book if you need to jumpstart or "re" jumpstart your imagination. I look forward to more stories from Sarah Phineas. Just a note (although this is listed as a children's/teen book, do not Miss out on this page turning adventure, this book was recommend to me by a friend thankfully or I may have missed out on the magic). I wish you happy reading

Wonderful read.
I'm always checking out books for my grandkids. They must be good, age appropriate and CLEAN. If I love them, then so much the better.
This book was recommended and I'm so glad. It sucked me right in.
I like the way it's written; quirky words, repeating words, just what kids like. I guess just what this Grammy likes, too.
Had to order the whole series after the first book.
Grandkids will get sucked in, too.

This is a great third/fourth grade intro to fantasy, magic, and adventure tales.
The hero, Conn the street thief, is destined for great things as a wizard. Nevery the wizard senses this and takes him on as an apprentice. Adventure and excitement follow.
Conn is the primary narrator, and his wonderful voice carries the book. He is street smart, but not a wise guy. He is made of true-blue hero stuff, being loyal, honest, conscientious, brave and shrewd. He is also subject to youthful error, exaggeration and false hope, so he presents a well-rounded, age appropriate protagonist. Nevery is a classic fair-but-firm, grumpy/softy master. Benet, Nevery's "muscle" is an effective soft-hearted tough guy. Rounding out the gang is Rowan, the ruling Duchess's daughter. She is smart, sassy, adventurous, and an excellent partner for Conn. She also provides a nice counterpoint to Conn, (in a Hermione Granger kind of way).
This book is not frantic, and there are no monsters. It's about how Conn grows up to be a wizard, and how he and his companions use magic and their own pluck to solve problems and help their city. There is "political intrigue", but it is simple enough to not confuse the story, (i.e. some bad wizards, a criminal kingpin, some spies and sneaks - that kind of thing).
I'm a big fan of Delaney's Spook's Apprentice series, which covers similar ground, but for an older reader. (More violence, more complexity, more depth.) But, this Magic Thief series is a wonderful way to introduce a reader to fantasy, and would be a great stepping stone to the Spook's Apprentice series. Then, as your reader gets older, you could move on to F.E. Higgins' Black Book of Secrets, (yet a more advanced and deliciously well-written apprentice type book), and beyond.
So, well worth serious consideration.

First off I'll say that The Magic Thief is an excellent fantasy adventure. Sarah prineas portrays an excellent story through the eyes of a young child pick-pocketer named Conn. He is a super clever, mischievous young boy who lives in the slums of Wellmet. He lives a hard life and is unsure of his future until he decides to pick pocket the pockets of Nevery, a wizard. What he finds is a locus magicalicus, a wizards main source of power, magic, and life. Without it he/she is no longer a wizard, almost. Anyway when Conn is not killed by the mysterious stone, Nevery decides to take him on as his possible apprentice, and the adventure continues frome their. You will be completely engrossed as Conn desperately tries to find himself, his locus magicacilus, and save the city of Wellmet. This book portrays magic like you've never seen, finally no more wands, not to say I'm against them, but I've read abut too many. Sarah Prineas deserves major credit for this epic tale, but in the big world of books, it's easy for an author and their adventure to get lost. When you discover this series you will be so glad you did, just like I did. So don't let this book get lost, find it! You won't regret it.
Hidden Winter
The engaging narrator of this fast-paced middle-grade fantasy, the first in a trilogy, is Connwaer, an orphan boy who survives as an expert pickpocket and lock-picker in the Twilight zone of Wellmet, a city that runs on magic. He steals the locus magicalicus (magical stone) of a powerful wizard, and when the stone's power doesn't instantly kill the boy, the wizard realizes there's something unusual about him and takes him on as an apprentice. Conn's principal challenges in this story are to find his own locus magicalicus and to investigate and put a stop to the theft of the living magic that Wellmet depends on.

This tale is action-packed, and full of interesting characters, among them the grumpy but kindhearted wizard Nevery, who has just returned to Wellmet after a 20-year exile, and whose journal entries and letters are effectively interspersed throughout the story as a sort of counterpoint to Conn's narrative; Benet, Nevery's big, burly, thuggish-looking servant/bodyguard, who bakes delicious biscuits and knits Conn a warm black sweater; and Rowan, daughter of the Duchess of Wellmet, who is interested in swordcraft and becomes Conn's mentor at the school for wizards and teaches him to read. I'd recommend this suspenseful, well-written story to anyone who enjoys a good middle-grade fantasy, and especially to those who liked Angie Sage's "Septimus Heap" series.

The Magic Thief:Found is the third and final instalment of The Magic Thief series. It has a great adventure with exotic characters including twists and turns in the story. The book has wonderful art work throughout which really adds to the story. The story answers a lot of the questions wondered about from the first two books such as: What is slow silver? or Where did slow silver come from?

Sarah Prineas writes with more versatile landscape than in the first two and adds more maturity in the characters.

For parents looking for great reads for their children--there is no real violence and focuses on good verses evil. It ends well and everything is resolved peacefully.
